I got smoked by a 240SX with an LSX built motor at the strip my first time out. Granted, I didn't hook up and I only lost by .5 seconds but the car was a beast. To make matters worse for my ego, there was a girl driving and it had pink wheels!

I will say that this was my 2nd run EVER, and my 60' needs a LOT of work, but the 240 was a bad@ss built car.

Don't underestimate the 240SX.

Here is a link to my vido from that run:

A guy I talked to at the track recently said if the tranny on the 5.0 isnt warmed up you can get blocked out of third.

A little off topic, but a guy I know put a fully built LSX in his 240. He was spinning past fourth gear and when he put slicks on it things started breaking from torque.

I could dig up a bad video off of facebook.

Well if you can't beat him, at least at the end of the day you're driving a 5th gen Camaro and he's driving a 1995 Nissan. Lol

See if you can get an earful of his exhaust note when he takes off. The SR20's have a distinct throaty pitch under accel while the RB motors have a smoother peaky kind of tone. That's assuming his engine is what he says it is, Jaydee-emm, and not a KA-T.

Ya know, some days I'd rather prefer a lightweight S14.5 to my current land yacht. Hell, anything that I can appropriately heel-toe in would suffice.

I have often thought about putting a 416 LS3 with Mast heads, sleeper cam, and built and stalled 4L65E in a 240. Less than 3000lbs and more than 500rwhp sounds real yummy. I could then always turbo that combo for 800rwhp and destroy everything all while being a very sneaky and unsuspected sleeper. Only problem would be getting a big enough tire under that car to hold it all.

Really? Not I, but I'm not one to be hitting the track with my car. I just love the appearance of ours car too much to really desire any other vehicle.

Having said that, I'm sure it's a blast to drive, wouldn't care to own one, but I think it would be fun to drive.

I'd like to see the time slips from that run. Didn't look like a very fast run for a ZL1.

Thanks, I missed that.
And yes, not the fastest run for a ZL1.

Nope. But pretty damn good for a 240

Yeah, mods makes car's fast. I never under estimate anyone that's modded.

I used to own an 02 WRX (along with an 04 STi). It had all the normal goodies with an upgraded turbo and supporting mods.
I would show up at the track and the GM crowd (LS1 z28s, TAs mostly) would make rude comment and talk smack.
Then I would line up and beat them all. Afterwards, they didn't have much to say.

I beat every ZO6 Vette and Dodge Viper I lined up next to at our local 1/8 mile. The track announcer used to get a kick out of it.

So never underestimate a car thats modded. No matter what it is.
