Hey Luke....limited potential?

Yeah okay, manual gearbox sus. Mine's auto. Same trans as behind RB25. Strong as! 2500stall. Rest of mods make them go. Don't cost much, but mine's been dumped 2" with larger dia coils, big front/rear bars. As far as stop-power....slotted rotors all round with bendix comp pads. Corners and stops as well as goes. 13sec flat. STI & Evo...hmmmm   :)

Yep, SR's have good potential, and the gearboxes arent as weak as people make them out to be. But things like the viscous diffs, small wheel guards, 4 stub hubs mean that it's a bitch to get it to go properly. To think that because it has an SR and it's all wheel drive puts it in the same category as an evo or sti is to drastically underestimate how much better they are.

You will find it difficult to make a Bluebird go as good as an evo for less than what it would have cost you to just buy the evo.

Example... Track me down a front sway bar... my back wheel comes off the ground around corners.

You're probably right about the cost effectiveness between the cars. I guess it depends on how far you want to go. For instance, my car has 200kw at the wheels and rips the pants off the likes of SS's, subarus, etc. Sure you can have 600hp at the wheels, but for what you can do with it...
For the work thats been done to the car, I'm more then happy with it. It's a reliable fast car. It's a sleeper with surprising power. I don't need to be a Ken Block.
The lowered springs does tend to make it a rough ride round town, but its road-hugging safe. The only thing I'd look at upgrading is the twinspot brakes.

My car has flared guards and can take big rubber. We aren't real sure if this was specific to this import. The other thing is....Japan killed the S15/SR20det's because of the astringent emmission laws...shame  :(

I don't use the Bluey for corners. It's all highway, freeway and lights applications.


i prefer corner speed more fun

I hear ya, slim, it's just that i never get to go out to a track and i just can't picture any roads where i could take advantage of high-speed cornering ability. unless i'm in a getaway vehicle. the straight line stuff can be done pretty safely.

so the point was that the bluey is perfect for my purposes. i'd never get to the point where i'd feel limited by it's ability. plus imho it's better looking than evo's and wrx's not to mention much much more of a sleeper, which you couldn't turn the other two into without affecting their performance drastically. eg. getting rid of the ugly bonnet scoops, putting on conservative wheels. etc.

oh yeah, then there's unique, luxurious and surprising.

Edit: Luke - you were right about the (realistic) potential and how certain cars are built for certain purposes. I get the impression that the SR20DET and Atessa shoe-horns were an after-thought just to fill a market gap for Nissan. All my dreams were in the Bluebird, and the bubble-bursting I was resisting occurred anyway... The car sits in my garage in need of a transfer case, hoping that it will be one day valuable! Plenty of modern day sleepers around nowadays anyway that are also nicer to the environment...
