  • Maximum usable power for a s chassis

    How much power would be too much for an 2300lb autocross 240sx, if running tires along the lines of a 14" wide Goodyear G19? I know this question is dependent upon a ton of factors, but I am curious of a ballpark figure.

          Aww. No real answers/guesses. A 275 width A6 can handle tree fiddy.

              Id say you'd start going slower around the 450-600 rwhp range depending.on the powerband.

                  I'm shooting for around 450whp for next year... just not sure which turbo I'll try to do it with.

                  The limiting factor is how usable the power is, though. I'd go as high as you can as long as you can retain some decent midrange and boost response.

                        That's what I figured... while we're at it any advice on turbine housing selection?

                          my 2 cents.
                          once you start getting over 400whp, you really start having to "work" to keep the car going the way you want it to go. You really have to start paying attention to traction.

                          You can certainly go for more power, but the rest of the build needs to support it, and in my experience, every 50 more whp, the car really changes its attitude through the corners.
