28 sep 2020
674 620 Skatījumi

Checking out my new car and first drive! I always wanted one of these cars, and when this one came up for sale, I had to buy it immediately, sight unseen.
It's pretty clear now that Marty's Toyota SERA is going to get dominated...
The Rules for this challenge are simple:
1) Buy a modified car for $2000 (oops)
2) Spend 1 day fixing it
3) Fans choose the Battles!

    • Glad to see it’s the NX2000 and not the 1600. And they are nothing like 240 SR. The nx has pushrods and valve train. The Sr in the 240 cams sit right on the valves and springs.

    • Clayton Andrews they kinda do. I think they call them utes. When you say mini truck I think of the car culture from when I wan in high school. Lots of loud stereos, big wheels, and no suspension. Kinda like their sex spec cars only in pickup form.

    • John Ellis I mean what I call a mini truck is like a might max, s10, Nissan hard body’s, Mazda b2000. just the compact truck of the 80s and 90s I would assume they have something like that over there.

  • Are you guys trying to become Top Gear? Too much talking and too little time working on cars. Stop being pretentious about the cars and please do what you do best... MODDING CARS! I already got irritated when in the previous episode Marty kept ignoring the price question (which never got answered) and now you are talking shit about each others' cars before you even took out a single tool. Come on, guys! Focus!

  • I've always loved the NX cars. I used to own it's predecessor , the 1988 Pulsar NX SE twin cam with the CA18DE engine. I had so much fun in that car. The one you have, we (here in the States) called the NX2000 and it did come with a limited slip differential. I actually worked for Nissan Motor Corp from 1991-1994) and they were pretty rare even when they were new. Also, I believe this was the lightest of the SR20 cars too.

  • 4g's are the worst sounding????????????????????????????????????????????????? Really hope I missed the sarcasm there but WTF I have never heard someone say a 4g63 turbo sounds like shit. They are one of the best sounding becuase theyre so deep sounding. Honda (turbo or not) and almost every other NA engine sound like ass. Just to prove my point. Definitely the best sounding 4 cylinder ever. lvworld.info/face/video/q5HCZ6ySj62motw

I know this comment didnt need to be written, but perhaps you might learn from it, maybe not and you'll just think I'm a sad and lonely knob cheese, Haha, not too far from the truth. Just wanted to say it because I used to really like you guys and yr show. Anyhoo, much luck for the future.

    • I’m pretty sure all SR’s were attached to an viscous LSD. The fluid is what makes the clutch packs lock. I’d be surprised if the NX2000 doesn’t have one as the SE-R did have
