My 240SX has been a dependable and
sporty means of transprotation.
Performance is good stock. Handling is
awesome, but acceleration is
disappointing. Potential performance
is really high in all areas. Its

exterior styling is great (love the
sleek fastback look and the flip-up

ride isn't too bad either.

Stock 0-60 acceleration is about 8.7
seconds (with the stock engine (KA24E)
and a stick).
Doesn't do good in bad weather (an LSD
and appropriate tires would help).
