You don't understand it supposed to get that feeling of touch and go.

    2 years ago I had a 4banger sports coupe and it was fun!!! The next year I bought a car with a V6 with far more low end torque... After that I decided I would not go back to a four banger unless the 4 bagner was Amazing. I'm addicted to the sensation of thrust with low end torque. Cars with hords of torque makes the car feel like a jetfighter. High revving minimal torque cars do not give have that sensation when you hit the throttle.

    Seriously Chii if you ever get a chance drive a car like a WS6 Firebird or a Iroc Z28 or a Charger R/T or a Viper, anything with lots of low end torque youll understand what people see in these cars. An absolute different feel from a higly tuned Integra or Prelude. Forget stats forget facts forget specifications just let your body feel the thrust sensation of lots of torque. The other cars might actually be faster I don't know. But torque makes the car FEEL faster. <!-- Signature -->

    Chii

    This is not the best handling sports car, it cant be. Who do you people hear this from????? I would realy like to know. This car is not that good at 0-60 and the price my god the price , 90,000 ????
    The only excuse the nsx lovers have is that it is the best handling sports car. PROVE IT. Did it race and beat all the other supercars in the world to earn that Title ??

  8. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    I have that, but as I said the Z06 is THE top of the line corvette, but all of you are comparing it to the most basic NSX, how about you try to compare the Z06 with the Best NSX?<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. When a z06 Vette will kill it for half the price the Z28 will beat it for 23K I don't know why the NSX cost so much. I would like to see more tuned cars like the NSX and less civics, the only way is to call it Honda NSX and drop the price. If the Acura NSX is 80K give it 500 horsepower stock. Yes I do think the NSX to be a form of art, but I would like to see more of them. The NSX and S2000 are nice to look at, there is no reasion why the NSX can't run with the Vette. Come on Honda put a V8 in it, please!!! And the Acura was meant to be an over-priced Honda luxuary car, not a sports car.
     
  10. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    come on i thought you knew more than that! it is the honda NSX, just not to western-minded americans like us. and a V8 is supposedly in the works for it. i havent heard anything recently, but ill go look right now.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    American cars don't have any power.Like your #$%#ing camaro wich has only 325hp with a so large engine(5,7litres).This is only 3200cc engine and has almost the same power as yours.I say you something,if it was 5700cc it would have about 500+hp this is NOT an American car.Also the NSX can have if HONDA wants 500hp with the same V6 engine.It's not an American car which needs very big V8s engines!

    I think you have that wrong, American Cars don't NEED large engines to make a lot of power, we do it for drivability with large power. If you have never drove a car with a ton of low end torque then you just don't know what you are missing. <!-- Signature -->

    But there's no fun if it have a low rev range.

  18. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    Even though I am a big Honda fan but I have to agree that the Honda NSX needs more power. For a price that is close to a US$100,000, 290hp definitely not enough. As in needs more horsepower to race against the American sports cars, well, I don't think it's that easy for any American sports cars to beat this Honda NSX. It might not be as fast as those big American V8 or V10 sports cars on the straight road but watch how the Honda NSX beat any American sports cars on any turns.
     
  19. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    Doesn't anybody reconize that there no competeter for the NSX except S7?
    Because it's MR.
    Is there any more american mrs?<!-- Signature -->

    I would say that the S7 is not a good competitor for the NSX because of the price, and performance difference.

    The most glaring is the price difference
    S7 is $225-300,000 in the US and more when you add in export and duty charges.
    The NSX is $85,000 in the US and i imagine cheaper or the same price depending on the country.

    Another big thing is the physical characteristics.

    S7/NSX

    Horsepower
    550/290

    Torque
    525/224

    Weight
    2750 lbs/ 3050-3200 lbs (depending on model)

    The fact that they are both MR is about the only thing that i could really compare between the two, everything else is quite different

    I dont have to prove shit, your the dum ass that thinks its the best car. So you NSX lovers can prove it. Also did you realize that you are pretty much the ONLY ONE saying this car is so great. The only one defending it. ahahahah ,

    Ignorance, I swear it leads to stupidity.... proven by Chii posts
     
  24. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    nahh, I've never said it's the BEST car.
    And I know, I'm the only one defending it, I do this, because I don't want people like you to make it to be the worst car in the world like you think only american can survive.

    There's a reason for the price.

    Quote from Honda:

    The NSX was the first car in the U.S. to use Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC), achieving what was previously impossible: generous low-rpm torque and awe-inspiring high-rpm horsepower from the same engine, without turbo or supercharging...

    Just like a racing engine, each NSX engine is put together by hand by a single craftsman who takes all the time needed to ensure a perfect fit. The block, heads and pistons are made of aluminum alloys. The connecting rods are titanium. These lightweight yet tough materials keep the engine cool and let it run safely up to 8000 rpm.

    And before an NSX leaves the factory, it is brought to the high-banked test track at Tochigi, where it is driven at high speed by a trained technician to ensure that it is worthy of your trust.

    No corvette have this, don't they.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Re: Good car, it needs more power to race American!!!

    I believe that the NSX was probably the best all around sportscar in 1990. I hope the next one achieves that also. The current model is only about as fast as a stock Camaro. I'm sure the next one will be faster, but it will probably continue the tradition of focusing on overall quality, rather than getting into a hp race. This is fine with me because I care about the environment. Ofcourse I'll never own a car this expensive anyway.<!-- Signature -->
