Re: Need Help: Narrowed It Down To 5...

Anyone who says FWD is as good as RWD is either uninformed or a bad driver.

Anyone who says FWD is better then RWD is a moron.


FWD and RWD both have their advantages and disadvantages.

FWD is better in the rain/snow ice for handling.
RWD is better for drag racing and launching harder.
both can be fun.............and you are more of a moron than me for posting that

Re: Need Help: Narrowed It Down To 5...

Of course the Miata won in the autocross event. Its 300-pound curb weight advantage and easiness to drive at the limit easily offset the Integra's 60 horsepower advantage. But, not surprisingly, the Integra dominated in the road racing test. Though the Miata mainly lost because it was down so much horsepower, the Integra handled better anyways. In mid- to high-speed corners, FWD is every bit as effective as RWD, if not more so. Trail-brake to set up the corner entry, point the car towards the apex, slam to gas to snap it back into line, and watch it sail out of the turn at full throttle. If you were to do that with a RWD car, your rear tires would go up in smoke, and you'd come out of the corner with a serious traction and acceleration disadvantage. So I think that you, sir, are the uninformed moron in this case.

Thanks guys. Is there any car, that gets good MPG that is also a good performer? If so, it'd probably be a FWD, right? Anyways, yeah, this will be my daily driver so I want as high MPG as possible.

The Hondas are solid bets for gas mileage... but, of course, 4-cylinders are going to get your best mileage... turbo will take it down, so if you want high mileage with performance both about equal the del sol is a pretty good bet... they're small, fast, and have a dohc 4-cylinder engine.

Re: Need Help: Narrowed It Down To 5...

I guess I'm an uninformed moron the..



I tried my best and have driven over 800 different makes and models of cars, but at the end of the day I'm just uninformed because I think you're wrong.

must have been the model with a Honda Insight motor swapped in...j/k

though 32-38 MPG is impressive, i think most of us want a happier medium, between power and gas mileage.

I was hoping that I could get something more along the likes of upper 20's. Do you think that the 240SX is the best performance car that I could get with good gas mileage? Thanks.

You can except low 20's with the Z31 Turbo, high teens with the 5.0, and mid 20's with the 240SX.

So, what do you think is the best car that get's good gas mileage and can be pretty fast? Also, it doesn't need to be very fast, probably the fastest I would race is a stock Ford Lightning which if I remember correctly does high 13's. So low 13's would be acceptable.
