i never understood these types of videos, only thing that makes this one different is its a nice nsx and not some slammed vw.

different strokes.

Edit: Fast forward to 3:45 to skip the gay stuff.

I would have probably wanted any car in a video like that.... I'm glad it wasn't a neon

Agreed. Someone thinks they have 'feelings' to share. STFU; your high school poetry is not art, it's pablum crap.

Buddy had a 94' and I could never tell when he was at WOT by feel from the passenger seat. VTEC would change the exhaust pitch a bit, but it was still slow. Look over and its at 8k rpm, but it was going NO WHERE. On/Off ramps were just as weak, and a near stock 94 NA walked all over him the time or two he autox'd. Cool looking car, but not much else.

Redemption win. My life goal is to drive a Porsche at the limit, the oversteer looks orgasmic.

it's a momentum car just like a miata. your buddy prolly had a shitty one.
MY buddy on the other hand had a great one. white like the one in the video with wht. volk te37's, and a few bolt on's and it ripped for an n/a street car. he raced this ******** that thought his neon srt-4 was the baddest thing on wheels (it did have a bunch of mods and nitrous!) and was pretty quick, but lost from a dig and a roll, even with his nitrous. not that a nsx is a drag racing car, but if it was really slow, there was prolly something wrong.

now if you refer to the video i have posted below, you will see that it more than hangs tough with other super cars. including ones with 12 cyl. and double the whp! your demonizing of the nsx isn't really your fault. it's just like racism, because of what your parents brought you up like, or maybe a bad experience (which is this case) you base your opinion on a whole race (or model of car) on ignorance through no fault of your own. i was the same way too at own time.

enjoy:

When I got to ride in his near stock car, I was used to my 347 H/C FRC which spent a good deal of time on V710's.... So our POV's might be skewed (not sure what your honest bases of quick is). They are sweet looking cars, and it used to get that kid more "kitty" than he could handle.

Far too artsy, and not enough action.

The one Hustler posted however is much better. :50 is how you carry more speed and pass.
