Absolutely, without a doubt. Wouldn't even have to think about it. You have to realize that you're asking the worlds biggest honda hater (me) that question. Honestly I'd rather put a gun in my mouth and pull the trigger than EVER own _anything_ with a Homo badge on it. If you handed me an NSX I'd sell it without ever getting in the drivers seat, then put every penny into something I like..

So absolutely! I would even take an E30 318 over an NSX.

Why would someone try to track that yellow 5.0. in the picture. Yea they have brute power, but that is the worst handling car made. I know, I love them and have left jizzeeem in the gas tank 5 times. But they don't handle.
I might leave alittle something for her too.

Um.. if that's a 318 e30 it's had a ton of modification ..

Looks more look a E30 M3 to me.. They are VERY different than a 318.. I helped a buddy put a s52 M3 engine in one of those E30 chassis.. fun fun car..

well with shitty stock suspension or something for the strip, yeah they suck. They are awesome with proper suspension for the track. 99.999% of fox bodies have ladder bars and are set up to squat, not for a proper road course.

True but in all fairness there are better platforms to start with than a live rear axle car for road racing..

You are correct, thats not an E30 318 but an E30 M3.. a car I very much want, just used 318 as an example of something I'd rather own.

Tell that to several of the local KC SCCA Foxbody owners who, well, own autox on a regular basis.

With the proper suspension setup you can make almost any car handle really well. Look at the Lightning for example.. Muscle mustangs took a bone stock lightning and 1200$ then pulled 1.06gs on a 300' pad.

I understand what you are saying but there is no way you can convince me that a solid rear axle is better than IRS in an Auto-x or road racing application.

Believe me, I won't try. Theres a reason our cars, and sports cars in general have IRS while pony cars, muscle cars, etc are solid live axle.
