  • Hello to all

    New around here but not to cars. Hoping to pick up an s chassis for grip not sure if I want a S13 or S14 yet. Plan on doing HPDE this upcoming year since work pretty much didn't allow me this year. So I'll be doing alot of reading for now. Thanks.

      Welcome. It'll be another S-chassis saved if you really get it for grip. There's a lot of good information on this site to get setup nicely.

            Probably the best option. You can get rid of the KA boat anchor and get some reasonable DE-level power and run some very solid laps out of the box with safety gear.

              YES! She needs to be flogged some more. I'm in Palm Springs, CA now on my drive out to Seattle and very sad that I won't have any sort of track car for probably quite a while after my AP1 is totaled.

              I'll admit, a few times I went out in the AP1 and lamented that I'd be pointing everybody by versus chewing up the field in an old Nissan.

                        Welcome!

                        I've had both a S14 and a S13. The S14s are harder to get body parts for and i think they look a little funky but S13s aren't as nice interior wise. If you're going for grip, you'll be swapping in a S14 subframe anyways - I think the S14 is a little heavier though if that matters.

                        I like my S13 Coupe waaaaay better than my turbo KA-T S14, but I think that's more of a function of drivetrain preference than chassis difference.
