  1. Simple yet effective – ADM S15

    Thread revival! It’s been a while my fellow Silvia brothers.. I haven’t been to the site for a while so I thought may as well update this thread. Gilbert the s15 (my true love) is now in the ownership of a member on here, I’m glad it’s gone to a good home/owner. He popped by during the week & was kind enough to let me see & drive it. although I miss it, I don’t regret selling it, as it was time for something different. It’s amazing the bond you build & all the memories made with a piece of metal over a course of time. So here is the replacement.. Blue turd 2002 NB mx5 1.8L VVT naturally aspirated, producing 113kw.. weighs just over 1000kg’s.. really is a nugget in straight line performance, but around corners, it’s a different story. On the outside it’s cute & girly looking some say, but with the right modifications & driven properly, it has the potential around twisties or the track, turn in is pretty awesome & natural, finding the limits of this car is much harder than the 15 (even with fully completed suspension set up). I purchased it purely to get stuck into circuit racing..but it’s street registered & see’s the royal nasho frequently.. though its not as precious as the s15. You’re thinking why did you sell the 15 for this?! The best way to answer that is, go & drive one, only then you will know why. I’m not done with ownership of another Nissan.. I know for certain the next one will be white, in line six.. twin turbo, 4wd with a v-spec 2 badge on the rear. Over’n’out, J.
  2. 86 or MX5?

    just realised youve posted in the mx5 cartalk forum also! my comment on s15 being un-balanced refers to its weight distribution & the fact that its ass lets go when you push the car around corners i.e. it's easy to find it's limits, where as in the mx it's totally different. i ran tein monoflex susp on my s15 & it had pretty good handling through royal nasho.. when i bought the NB, i can easily push that twice as hard & i wasnt reaching anywhere near it's limit at all & thats on stock suspension. alot of people (including me at one stage), think they are gay or a women's car, but they are far from it.. it's once you drive it properly.. you realise what it is. the thing i miss most about my s15.. is the turbo torque hit & skids..haha. as you get older you get over straight line speed.. Jas.
  3. 86 or MX5?

    didnt read through the other responses but..here is my 2c. id never think i would sell my s15..but i did, why? in a nut shell: - i drove a track prepped NB once, got back into the s15 & it felt like a toyota camry (dont get me wrong i was in love with the s15) - although not fast in straight line.. & prob the worst thing about it! it's very well balanced.. very fun.. & you'd be suprised with some mods, which cars you'd be keeping up with/owning on corners & out braking on corner entry..including 86's & evos. - cant really comment too much about the NC but there are supercharger kits for these.. some swap with a larger n/a motor, they run impressive times at wakefield. - NB's with bolt on turbo 5-10psi & stock internals would run a low 13 quarter (potential is there if you want) & the internals handle it. - much cheaper & easier to maintain - they dont break as easily. - there is are reason why they are the best selling sports car/roadster in the world. s15 although sleek, good looking & awesome performance, good at skids etc is not very well balanced. good luck!
  4. Sold a while ago.. good bye my love..

Nicely weighted & has a great feel. $100 ono pick up only.
