    anyone who follows touring cars probably alrady knows.

    The driver amazingly beat all the compatition useing handleing to his advantage because his cars did not have the horse power to compete with the the other cars. It was really intresting to watch for all those intrested there will be another showing of the championship next week on speedvision whatever channel that is for you guys.

    I was surprised i honestly thought that the NSX would not be able to compete with the other cars but i guess the driver must have had a lot of skill cause he won with 250 pts and the closest to him was a BMW driver with 125pts or somthing close. So obviously the NSX has enough power to get the job done and enough reliability.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    The Viper beat the NSX Zanardi Edition by 1.8 seconds (13.8 seconds to 15.5) in the 0-100-0 test from motor trend, and that was before it has the brakes that it has now... and .4 mph advantage in the slalom for a car that much narrower is not really that impressive.

    you forgot to add the other tests in that comparo
    The Viper was faster by 17 mph 3.2 seconds in the one mile, .9 seconds and 10.7 mph in the 1/4 mile, .6 seconds in 0-60, 23.8 mph in the top speed, $12,300 cheaper in the as tested price, but got beat by .01g on the skidpad.<!-- Signature -->

    the audi in speedvision is modified by AUDI of europe while the ACURA nsx was modified by normal guys, besides, NSX shows its true power in the Japanese Grand Touring Championships where audi a/s 4's wouldn't be able to compete.(note: cars like mclaren f1 and lamborghini diablo are in this championship.)

    Are you sure about that? According to the Speedvision final standings, Michael Galati won. Michael Galati drives an Audi S4:

    LOL, the NSX had a supercharger and still didn't win.

  12. yeah i love GT races. i dont know very much about it because i dont have speedvision, so i may get to watch one or two a year, and then maybe one F1 race. but yeah, they are incredible. i love the realtime integras and how they make the BMW's look like big heavy rolls royce's. i saw one civic HB that sorta looked like mine that did very well on one race. he was leading when i last saw it, but then i had to go. i wish they would show it more on more common channels, but maybe in the future.
     
  13. Was it a Red civic?

     
  14. all I have to say is put a stock viper against a stock NSX or any other jap car and we'll talk
     
  15. i THINK it was red, but it couldve been yellow too. they said it was new and that the race at Leguna Seca was its first. its hood was carbon fiber, but thats all i can remember. id love to have it though. street legal of course.
