With all the honda influence in here, I thought i'd test the NSX market? I want something to totally go silly on. The only concern i have with that car is low power and small front sheel wells. Anyone know of any super tuned ones? I want a car that handles bar none!

for the money you can't go wrong. the handles is definitely there. power wise you can always boost it to make up the difference. turbo or supercharger kits are available.

Power is the last thing to worry about on an NSX if it is a track car. Get the usual bolt-ons, clutch, flywheel, gears, and you'll be flying around the track.

Some of my friends are NSX nuts and that's what they all swear by. With those upgrades on a 97-newer NSX will get you in the low 12's according to what they've told me.

What about the front wheel well? How can it handle so well with such skinny tires? is there another option that is better than the NSX? Budget si $50K.

nsx or fully built e36 m3

i would go w/ the nsx.

that car doesnt need wide front tires, 235 is more than enough, its light, there is no weight over the front. i drove one a long time ago, its a huge go kart :drive: :thumbup:

Vadim is right. There is no need for wide tires in the front since it is mid-engine. The car drives differently. You essentially point and shoot with the NSX.

i agree, you dont need power steering etc... on a track car :thumbup:


i drive w/ loafers, they are the most comfortable to drive in, better than driving shoes :dunno:

Get an Evo or an STi, they are the best bang for the buch and we routinely spank the most highly modded NSX's and Corvettes. The only thing better than an Evo/STi is a Skyline but they are just too much money and not worth it if you mess something up. It took us a couple years and a lot of research until we ended up with the Evo and boy are we happy we did.

If your serious about having a track car thats awesome on the track and still a good daily driver we can build you one of our K-spec Evos. We only build them for chosen clients so PM me if you want more info.
