dude, a RWD car with 300HP can be hard to handle. my freakin pickup has about 300(guessing, maybe dyno later down the road) and it can be a hand full if im not carefull(had it side ways at 45 more then once on the dirt. good fun). thats why i sugested a 325ix. found one localy for 3K in PERFECT condition with badass wheels and sterio. AWD cars are much easier to handle if you decide to be a dumbass( and we all do). about the rx7's, those are about the least reliable cars ever built. those rotory engines rarly last past 150K. if you are looking for jap cars, look at an older eclipse. AWD, twin turbo(im pretty sure?), shit loads of power, but wont kill you in the long run.
