4ws on a rwd car is shitty... wouldnt be too bad on the skyline though.. even though it runs rwd unless there is slippage of the rear tires... yay for the attesa ets

its only shitty if you want to drift.

There's slippage in the 240 and 300zx too. Its what it prevents.

Still kills a drift.... if that's what you dig.




There's hucas lock kits out for the drifters.

personally id rather drive a car that does what i want it to, not what it thinks it wants to. thats why i dont believe in ABS and to a lesser extent, powersteering.

heh... abs saves lives

imagine if the women driving on this earth didnt have ABS... when they let go of the steering wheel, close their eyes, scream and stomp the brakes... at least ABS would prevent lockup

but i bet 50% of women hit the gas instead of the brake

Can you replace man with woman and still keep that statement truthful?

Well since I come from the school of honda I'm so used to making the car stick the turns and actually go fast thru the corners, so I see HICAS for what it really is and not as a driftablility problem. Should I decide that drifting is for me I know that HICAS is not an option, but I like to have all four tires planted and feel the G's. Besides, if I wanted a drift car I sure wouldn't have bought this car, I would have gotten a $2000 POS that I didn't care about.

As far as the ABS goes I haven't been able to enguage it yet, but I want to get used to the car before I drive it at its limits.

I can hardly wait for HyperREV to get his new car, I give it the big 'ol thumbs up
