I like both of these cars, but why are people selling there 200sx se-r's for NX2000's. Is there something better in the NX than the 200? Please inform me on this, because I am confused???

I dunno... I still have my 200SX, and I don't plan on selling it any time soon.

Maybe because the NX is a rare SR20-powered car? Who knows... I chose the NX because I wanted to build an SCCA ITS race car.

Good question. Maybe they just can't handle the smooth styling of the 200sx. The want that ugly Geo Metro look? Just kidding guys!!!! NX's are deffinatly cheaper & in my opinion look better than a classic. Turbo SR20DE cheaply i guess. What are the weight differences? Maybe they are lighter?

Weight:

Classic ???
NX2000 ???
200sx 2,500 or so.

Any imput?

WEll, maybe cuz the nx is supposed to be the best handling sr20 pwered vehicle out of the classic and the g20 and 200sx se-r, and also because its a bit quicker then the 200sx se-r!! dont anyone hurt me now...but supposedly according to the numbers it is.....plus its nice and light and looks like an egg!! :-D

Hehe seems like the B14 to B13 craze is in full swing, particularly to NXs. My "reason" is because this NX more or less fell into my lap and I decided to be a good boy and get rid of my car payment and drive the NX full time. It is a MUCH better starting point as far as mods go than the 98. You already have the good intake cam, high rev limiter, no speed limiter, MUCH better handling stock (I don't even know if I WANT an aftermarket suspension on this thing!), plus you can carry tons of **** in it. Just bought a 7 1/2 foot Christmas tree and a bunch of other stuff last night and has no qualms lugging it all home. I need to race it! I need twisties damnit!!!! :) :D

Thats because the high port motor is a simple animal. The NX and Classic have independant rear alxes. The NX's are getting cheap now. Classic SE-R's are harder to find because most owners are holding on to them or they are being bought up as fast as they are sold. I personally don't want to toot my own horn but if you see my NX you will see why a lot of people want NX's. :D

I know that the NX is heavier than the B14 and B13 chassis. The handling in the NX is great compared to the B14. Marc, I drove a white one in jersey at an Acura dealership at the end of the summer. They are nice, it had about 60k on it. I was impressed with it, but I wouldnt give up my blue B14 for it. I like the fact of no speed limiter and the rev's go up to 7500rpm stock. But JWT can take care of that. I dont know, I am going to set up a poll and see what people think. I am still lost, wondering what people are thinking about this. I know the main factor with both of these cars are PRICE!!!!! But thanks for all of the replies.

According to carpoint.msn.com:

98 Sentra SE 5 speed: 2617 lbs
95 200SX SE-R 5 speed: 2536 lbs
91 Sentra SE-R 5 speed: 2414 lbs
91 NX2000 5 speed: 2461 lbs

Just like I thought. About 50 lbs more than a Classic. When I weighed my Sentra it was 2642lbs, probably due to the turbo being on it, the intercooler piping, and turbo.
