    <b>phoenix is an imbicyle, yes i need to tune my NSX to compete with a car that has over 2L larger engine, however with my LIGHT MODS that increased my horses by maybe 60-63, i tear corvettes left and right with extreme consistency.

    Now, you morons post numbers and forget that numbers dont make great cars, yes corvette may be SLIGHTLY ahead of the nsx, but hey ive been blow away by little ***** ass civics that pump enough nos to blow a hole in the atmosphere, but does it make them better cars? HELL NAH, i laugh at the site of corvettes and oh yeah CAMAROS hahaha, they are WANNA be super cars, yes they pack a punch, but they remind me of mike tyson, if the fight goes for more than 3 rounds HE IS OUT like a lil *****....
    SO i ask you guys an honest question, if i gave you the option of an NSX or a Corvette which one would YOU rather get, and please answer honestly.
    Oh and here is my NSX reaching 146 MPH in fourth gear at 8000 rpm, roughly the top speed of the corvette, only i have 1 more gear left i bet i could top off 170 EASILY.... CAN UR SILLY CORVETTE DO THIS? i think not... PUH-THETIC!</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->


    You sir, are an idiot. I do not know why you drive that car, but there is no way that i want you, who knows nothing but what your uninformed ignorant and closed minded opinion is, to be anywhere near me on the road.

    Both the NSX and the vette were designed with basically the same purpose in mind, fast bad ass cars that handle. The difference is that over here in amereica most of us like to have our power all the way through the rpm range as opposed to just the top, that is why we choose to make higher displacement engines. HP/L which is what you are talking about "with a 2L bigger engine" is a recdiculous argument. It doesnt hold any water when comparing to performance cars unless they are entering a displacement limited race. Displacement differences arise from different engineering styles trying to reach the same goal.

    Honda created the NSX using the top of their tech at the time and it is a good car, GM made the vette using pretty close to the top of their tech, and it is a better car performance wise and handling wise.

    didnt you earlier, on page three, say that you had not modified your car yet? i seriously doubt that this has changed in the last 48 hours or so. And you also admitted earlier that you lose to vettes on the drag, and if i remember correctly you said "if i was going to race i would choose the vette" So what is it man? Make up your mind and quit waffling like a god damn politician.

    You laugh at the sight of corvettes huh? That is one of the most ignorant things that you have said yet. you have admitted to the vette being the superior performance car, yet you still find them funny? I guess seeing all those tail lights would get a little humorous, i mean i would laugh at myself as well if i kept making the same mistake over and over (losing races to vettes). And you can laugh at the camaro all that you want, it isnt even in the same league as the vette and the NSX, yet somehow, the camaro keeps up pretty damn well, and with the 1LE suspesion found on the SS models, it doesnt stay too far behind at the track either. But for a car that is about 50,000 less than your NSX i dont expect to beat it. But you can laugh if you really want to to compare yourself and your car to the camaro level.

    146="roughly the top speed of the vette" to you huh? #$%#ing retard. Do you not read any of the previous posts in the this forum, do you not do any research at all to back up your claims? Holy SH*T man, i seriously doubt that you have ever even been to the track let alone lit up your tires in front of the tree. As it has been stated in this forum many times allready the base model vette tops out at 173 according to GM and 170 acording to motortrend, that is about 2 mph faster than your NSX is claimed to go 168 by honda. Oh and you wanna hear something else that is pretty interesting? Your NSX gets its acceleration numbers partially due to engineering but alot due to its 4.06 final drive ratio. The vette runs stock with a 6 speed as 3.41, i think the NSX is slightly taller here waht about you? Oh yeah, your shitty midengined overpriced underpowered overhyped pussy wagon only has a 5 speed?!?!?!@?!? HAHAHAHAH and you call the vette PUH-THETIC, riiiiiiiiight.

    you know i cant figure something out about you, either you are a trust fund baby who hasnt had to work a day in his life, or you are an deranged retarded old man having a midlife crisis. I dont know which, but either way you need to wake up and realise some facts. The vette is a better performance car, it costs less and does more. If your beef with the vette is non performanc elike styling that that is fine, but you should say so and stick to that argument instead of changing your platform of argument every other post. You lie too much on this forum to be trusted anymore and you have no bearing on reality outside of your twisted little head. Go to the track, run some vettes get your ass kicked and post your time sheet, then maybe we might believe you, as for now, get your ignorant flagwaving head out of your ass and go learn something about cars, then you can try to sound intelligent on these forums.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE --> yeah bigrob we need to tell these honda dumbass's what a real car is<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  2. hey i love chevy's listen, only a trailer trash redneck like you would resort to pety name calling and disrespectful sayings. First of all, you hate me because my parents bought me a brand new NSX and you couldnt afford one if u sold your house, your car and all of your organs... So first of all please if u dont have anything insightful to say then shut your mouth, coz i can see your corroded teeth.

    Like i said theres a reason why the NSX costs over 30 grand more... WHY you ask? Because its a true exotic, can you say SPECIAL EDITION as in less then 5,000 made a year? i see a corvettes everywhere thats why they dont get their rightfully earned respect, they are great cars, but since they are made in such huge numbers their quality suffers significantly, that is why i hate the corvette, plus the tuneability of a corvette and NSX do not even come close, i have enough room to drop in a turbo, blower or even another engine, cant do that with the corvette without blowing a gasket<!-- Signature -->

    I guess thats why Lingenfelter and Callaway have been making twin turbo Corvettes with over 600hp for years now. Dumbass, all of those things can be added to ANY car, even a Honda Civic. And not only that, but the Corvette handles mods extremely well. Highly tuned Corvettes are very durable and last longer than most imported cars with highly tuned small engines.
     
  4. The NSX was an exotic design when it came out TEN years ago. Now it's just another car. See fewer RX-7's then NSX's. Also, who wants to pay a $90,000 for a car that gets it's ass kicked all day by Vettes just because there's few of them?

    OK, your PARENTS bought it. Man did you really burn yourself. Now for those who actually work for their own cars, the corvette is a better bang for the buck. And he is not a red neck. You maybe are the spoiled rich kid who is biased and doesn't know what it means to WORK for a car. I had to work my butt of for a year to get a Z28 and my parents didn't help me one bit. man these people get worse and worse
     
  6. Why the #$%# are you comparing a 250bhp overpriced japanese pussy car to a corvette?
     
  7. hey guess what, the nsx is dirt. Rollup next a 2002 ZO6 and you'll just get eaten. 0-60 in 3.9 and the quarter in 12.24(Corvette Quarterly). Yeah, back to japan w/ u nsx.
     
  8. NSX? Laughable. Took my '88 RX-7 TurboII to the track summer '01, and dragged a '96 NSX. He beat my... by .24 seconds. He did 13.27, I did 13.51. Sure, I got a few mods, but even running a meager 283HP in a beat up clunker with some mods, made me laugh. That guy went home crying.

    But just to make sure I'm on the same boat, I also dragged a '00 Vette coupe, and he undressed me, dressed me up, and undressed me again... made me AND the NSX look like dogshit.

    <b>NO DOUBT, THE VETTE IS AN AWESOME CAR HANDS DOWN BEST PERFORMER FOR THE MONEY.... BUT FORGET THE NUMBERS FOR A MINUTE AND TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE THINGS THAT CANT BE DESCRIBED BY NUMBERS, LIKE PRESTIGE, RELIABILITY AND LONGEVITY...SO I ASK YOU ONE MORE TIME WHICH ONE IS THE BETTER CAR!?</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Longevity- 50 years in 2003 and still plans to keep on going. That makes it not only the longest consectutive run for a sports car but also puts it in the catagory of one of the longest continual production runs in American automotives.

    Prestige- go to ANY!!!! car show in the country no matter what year, generation, or engine size people young and old will come look at it. You want prestige notice that when you rev your engine a few people look, when that vette with its factory exhaust (god forbid a borla) puts it up to 5k everybody in ear shot will turn around to see. That my friend is prestige.

    Reliabilty- Chevy puts 55-65 million dollors annually into quality control (source: collage buisness course BA 201) Ford puts 12, Chrysler 30. That puts GM way beyond other american car companys in the ways of quality and reliability. Parts availabilty is a sinch to. I drive a Caprice police interceptor. All my parts are from either the vette or H/D series trucks. I can walk into any NAPA in the country, and this doesnt happen very often, and find any part I could need. Try doing that when something on your NSX breaks. Also this car will get up to 300000 miles before it finally just dies, that has nothing to do with reliabilty as it does how you drive the car. You want to ***** about American cars and reliability you'd better to be loaded for bear, GM has one of the highest reliabilty ratings on the planet, why do you think you see all those New York City cabs driving around with 200000+ miles on them, they just dont die.

    So please get your head on straight and end this cause its getting to the point of futility.

    Oh and for anybody that thinks a 348cid engine is big, you need to drive something besides your Honda that you pretend is a porche when your on this forum.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. ughh...you dumbasses amaze me...why exactly does it matter if the corvette has a bigger displacement than the NSX? it makes no difference HOW you get there...a vette uses 5.7L, a viper uses 8.0L, a nsx uses 3.2L, a cobra R uses 5.4L, and the modena uses 3.6L...so what? hell, a F1 engine is only 3.0L, so does that make all of these other engines garbage just because they can't match the output of a F1 engine? they are all a means to an end...engine size means jack shit.<!-- Signature -->

    first of all, read my post right above yours...second, i'd really love to see the "research" that you did to show that the NSX is faster than the vette.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. The NSX isnt faster than the Vette... I wish people could just accept that and stop trying to BS there way into believing it is.
     
  14. the NSX has never been able to beat the vette.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. YA My research is in the Fed 02 issue of Road and Track where the Z06 raped it. So please don't mock me for something you think I don't know anything about.

  18. Okay, so that NSX Type S Zero has the stock Corvette beat (not suprised, as the Type S is the "Z06" of NSXs). But its still no match for the Z06 Corvette.

    Are you a cop....No I didnt think so. You forget a few things when you make a dumb statement like this.

    1. You are not trained to drive at highspeed, you get up to 160 and watch you sweat. And unless your name is Andy Pilgram or Paul Jentalozy you arnt gonna compete with highspeed pursuit training.

    2. Traffic on I-4 is terrible and Im suprised it got that fast considering that Interstate gridlocks at Orlando.

    3. Top end is top end when your out of RPM's your out of options and a Caprice is set up to chase you above 120 unlike the Crown Vic's.

    If you wana try your luck in the NSX im sure you own cause you bought it with your part time job at Mcdonalds come on down to Florida. We just bought 200 Highspeed Camaro Interceptors so please try we could use the fun.<!-- Signature -->
     
  20. Hey lawman, first of all i hate cops, they are never there when u need them and always there to give you a speeding ticket. Second of all you must be one of three 1) Insane 2) Stupid 3) Experiencing high fever if you think that a heavy, slow, disguisting looking piece of shit like a caprice classic can #$%#in hang with the beautiful NSX.

    I mean what kind of a dumb shit do you have to be to put that sloppy looking excuse for a car in the same sentence with the NSX? Man I'm just gonna ignore all the arrogant pricks in this room.

    Lawman your officially a dumb mother#$%#er<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. The person who made this forum is rich but even money cannot overcome the insecurity he is obviously feeling. He did not make the forum to discuss. He made the forum to try to feel good about himself. Money is not the key to happiness and he is probably suprised that he doesn't feel great now that he has his NSX. He is instead confronted by feelings that having an NSX is not good enough. He must now convince everyone he made the right decision in buying an NSX. He will never succeed at this and his insecurity will have to be solved by other means.

    I like that you are ignorant enough to compare the nsx's looks to the caprice's in reguards to how fast the two can go. Last summer as i was driven to the county jail i spent the ten minutes in that police interceptor and found out a thing or two.

    1. The caprice VASTLY outpowers the crown vic (the cop that arrested me told me that he WISHED that he could have a caprice). Also that the new impalas from chevy (FF v6) out accelerate and higher top end than the crown vic (FR v8).

    2. Cop caprice's top out close to 167-170 STOCK, have you ever heard of a car called the Impala SS, i didnt think so, it was built from the early 60s for a while and then again in 1994-96, it was supposed to be a civilian police interceptor, but sadly it is not tuned as much as the police one. It tops out at 163 (i have done it)

    3. YOU ARE AN ARROGANT ASS WHO HAS NEVER WORKED A DAY IN YOUR LIFE. YOU THINK THAT LIFE NEEDS TO BE HANDED TO YOU AND THAT YOU DONT NEED TO EARN ANYTHING BECAUSE MOM AND DAD WILL TAKE CARE OF IT FOR YOU. YOU MAKE ME SICK!!!!!!!!

    and

    F**K YOU FOR SAYING WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT COPS. You owe your life and probably your parents fortune to the protection that they provide. Yeah they suck evey once in a while when they give your arrogant trustfund ass a speeding ticket, who cares, you shouldnt have been speeding!!!! We all do it, that doesnt make it right. GOD I HOPE THAT I NEVER SEE YOU ON THE ROAD, the way you post here scares me to think that you are alowed behind the wheel of a civic let alone NSX. I have been arrested, have recieved numerous tickets, been to court, paid fees fines probatioin charges blah blah blah, AND I STILL RESPECT POLICE for what they do for us everyday, without so much as a thank you they are out there putting their lives on the line for your spoiled ass and all of ours as well.

    Dont you dare tell me that i am jealous, i refuse to get in a money pissing contest with you, it isnt important. You need to open up your 16 year old eyes an drealize that real life lays out there somewhere in front of you, and maybe it would behoove you to try and figure out what and where it is.

    p.s. the NSX still is not as fast and cannot handle with the vette, even though it is as close as japan has come here in the states. AND, so a duck and a rabbit walk into a bar.........
     
  23. Rob, Thank you. Its good to see that someone has there head on there shoulders and not up there ass.

  24. I am not going to pretend to be a psychologist but this guy is just insecure and will not be satisfied until every person says the NSX is better than the Corvette and its Z06 variant. Until that happens he feels some nagging doubt over whether he wasted his money or whether his car is the best. He argues fervently because the only way he will be satisfied is if everyone genuinely agrees with him. Deep down he may feel that he did not earn his car and that thought may be bothering him as well. Regardless he will not find ego satisfaction by bashing the Corvette. If he did not care about racing then no one would bring up the fact that the Z06 is faster. However, he mentions racing repeatedly which leads me to believe that he is insecure about the NSX being slower. He wants his car to be the fastest on the road and it is not so he is frustrated. Please talk to someone and they may be able to resolve these issues you have. Arguing and being combative will not lead to the peace you wish to make with yourself about your car. Thank you.
