Re: TWIN TURBO ON MY TRANS AM

Discussion in '2001 Honda NSX-R Concept' started by sewermonster, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. A dumb comparison !!!!!

    Lets compare it in overall andsee what's the result !!!!! No promblem , the NSX will beat your car flat !!! The NSX is voted as one of the best car in the world (Ranked 10) , so........get a life !!!!! 0-400 doesn't mean anything , go for a long run and see !!!!! Honda Rulz.........!!!!!
     
  2. i would rather dream about driving an nsx (not this one, but one with pop-up headlights and a t-top) on some scenic, twisty back road, wind in my hair, playing with the smooth shifting 6-speed, reving that wonderful v6, all that while siting in beautiful high quality leathers seats, than waste my money on any current american muscle car.

  4. If a comparison should be made with an nsx make it somewhat fair... 2000 NSX T vs. 2000 Mustang Cobra R... Cost- NSX: 88K; Cobra R: 54K, 0 to 60- NSX: 5.0/ Cobra R 4.4, lateral acceleration- NSX:.89g/ Cobra R: .99g, quarter mile- NSX: 13.5/ Cobra R: 13.2. I'm not sure what you'd pick but the cheaper, faster, better handling car sounds better. and talk about exclusivity, only 250 made. And please, hold the retorts about how it looks, that's merely opinion.

    You just don't understand the difference between the handling of an NSX.
    Besides, you should compare the Cobra R with the nsx type R or the NSX type S Zero in Japan.

  6. here in a COLLEGE town for crying out loud, i see more crappy mustangs that i do anything. and yeah, i see supras all over the road. i had was in a 15 car pile up one time with 16 supras. everybody and their mom around here wants a GT "stang". then again, everyone around here just wants there mom. period.

    and i can say that because i am FROM here. (and no, i dont want my mom)
     
  7. The Toyota Supra is one of the best cars ever made. They are reliable, versatile, fast as all hell, look sexy, and with the Twin Turbo in place will thrash almost everything under $75K.

    wow.. a 10.2.. am I supposed to be amazed by your car now? that's nice that you got a twin turbo v8(even thgouh I doubt you do) and all, but in reality shouldn't you run slightly faster? maybe you're just that shitty of a driver or got small shitty turbo's... the NSX owns the road(over your car atleast), even if this car of yours does exist you don't 'own the road' maybe the drag strip, but granted you probably don't drive your car on the street much cause I just don't see a twin turbo t/a bein on the road everyday... </b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Do you realize how fast 10 seconds is??? It is DANM fast!!! there is about 3 seconds between his claims (if he is not lying) and a stock NSX, that is absolutly HUGE!!!! There is almost the same difference between a NSX and a Ford Focus. <!-- Signature -->

    You forgot the GT40, that was the car that actually scared Ferrari, the NSX worried them. And the Vette isn't the only car good from US, Viper,Camaro, Firebird & Mustang to name the most common.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Just like the NSX in Japan, the Z06 is basiclly the best overall car in US.<!-- Signature -->

  15. i cant stand ppl who love european cars, and r so full of themselves, seem to think they own one. It seems to me, that 3/4 people have either seen a car that has only 20 models made, or they have a ferrari 350, or a lamborghini diablo. And all u ppl rippin the vette, sayin its a bad car, go to hell. its a decent car, just ur full of ur 500k cars, u dont seem to understand that money is an object
     
  16. buddy... buddy.. buddy.. put away your 8 liter vipers and 3 liter nsx's... get a skyline, i did.. beat he shit outa my old civic, i race that shit,.. got 550 horses.. beat the sod of impreza's, 3000gt's s2000's, even a porsche c 4 once, and yes, she corners liek she's on rails.. save teh 20 $ over the NSX, buy a skyline, and mod the shit outa it.. ,it keeps goin and goin and goin..

    sorry.. i love sayin that.. but seriously i have a 99 skyline, #$%#in love it, beats the pants of anything i race, save for the ferrari herself. lol

    Ur info is not rite. It is:
    NSX:0-60=4.9sec(average), 4.4(fastest)
    Skidpad=0.92G
    1/4 mile=13.3@108.8mph(average), 12.72@113.4mph(fastest)


    Also, go to Morpheus or "Temple of VTEC" and download a race between F355 and NSX, Skyline and NSX. NSX beat both cars in the movies. <!-- Signature -->

    <b>A TransAm/Camero/Mustang could cost $5000 brand new with 400hp, it could run a 9 second quarter mile stock, it could do better lap times than a Porsche and it would still just be plain ugly and poor quality. And to top it all off, the very day the new model TransAm/Camero/Mustang comes out, you may as well go to the store and pick up a mullet wig, because you just became the biggest piece of trash on your block. Your neighbors make fun of you behind your back, women laugh at you, really you are a sad embarrasment. Buy a Japanese or German car and 10 years from now you'll still be the envy of all.

    Take my word for it, I've driven a 1998 Trans Am and a 2001 Mustang GT and I now drive a 2001 Honda Prelude. Of course the Trans Am and Mustang could kill my Prelude in a race, but I'd take the Prelude any day. I love cars and hence I want to "DRIVE" a car, not "CAPTAIN" a ship. I want a car that looks good inside and out, not sounds loud.

    Another thing that people always forget in this Japanese/American arguement is that driving a unique car is desirable. Every piece of trash in the U.S. has a crappy muscle car. You can't even get a mile from your house without seeing 2 or 3 dozen other trash american muscle cars go by. Why not buy a car that's a little less common? Well, I guess common people like a common car.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->
