i found this car for sale on dsm trader the guy is asking somewhere between 3-4k for the car. it is a 90'gst. i was gonna buy it to just take to the track and have fun w/ for a second car. i was wondering what kind of e.t i could expect w/ the current mods the car has. the mods are as follows:- rebuilt engine with 2g pistons
- rebuilt tranny
- 2.5"DP and cat
- 3" thermal exhaust
- 16g ported and clipped
- k&n intake
- new ACT 2100
- 17" 5 spoke rims w/ new yokohama tires
- intrax lowering springs
- Kyb Gr2's in front and AGX adjustables in rear
- S-AFC
he doesnt have a boost controller so it is still running factory boost. i was planning on cranking up the boost a bit if i get it w/ a boost controller.
 
13's on pump gas.. prolly higher 13's since I didnt see any injectors or cams installed on the car. Right now as it is I bet its a low 14second car. You could get it down in the 13's with 500 bucks or so. Prolly 12's on race gas.
 
well truthfully if you are looking for a car to have fun in and take to the track, i would look for a 1g AWD (gsx - all wheel drive). with the gst (FWD - front wheel drive) you will have major traction issues. you can get a nice 1g AWD for that amount of money.
 
I have both, well I just sold my fwd, but my fwd was fun as hell rippin tear everwhere. Didnt like getting beat off the line because I had no traction though. I wouldnt trade my awd for one though, no one can touch you from the start.
 
If you do plan on getting the fwd, I would put in a front LSD(limited slip differential) to get traction, not unless the car already has it installed. Because that way you can help eliminate some of the torque steer that occurs when one of the wheels spins and pulls the car to one side. Thats just my 2 cents

So you might wanna consider an AWD. It has great off the line launching power. But then again more parts to break or wear etc. It's more of a personal preference, you seemed interested in the FWD, so maybe if you get the car you'll go through and put in a LSD or just live with the torque steer and your car being pulled by one wheel. this is my 2 cents

Yeah, that can get real scarry when your car flys across all lanes when you floor it.
