I still preffer a 712whp STi
This is a discussion on Nsx!!!!!!! within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; I still preffer a 712whp STi...
Yea thats like the same weight as an STi or an NSX i think the power of the NSX is actually pretty underrated for the weight.
I still think the NSX has some great handling potential.
I still preffer a 712whp STi
correction, the STi weighs like 3260 lbs. the WRX weighs 3085 (excluding 06)Originally Posted by Okonkowo
haha thanks i guess but i meant they're all around the same area.
Like I stated before, this was about four years ago. The specs of the new C6 is pretty different to the Vetts four years back. I apologize for discussing on cars I haven't kept up on par with on proper info. But for my time when I had my car I haven't lost to a Vett on the track. The NSX stock was just over 3,000lb so yes i stand corrected, you guys are correct about the weight area, I had my car down to 2,876lb (at this point it was strictly a track car for me, it gets really loud in the cabin.) Regardless this was a big gain. The motor made up for lack of output through its high reving and a responsive power band.
We can throw arguments back and forth for ever so I'll stop myself now. I think these car are all great cars. And I'm certianly am not trying to dis on any car either. I just would prefer the NSX since it is what I know and have experienced. And it is very possible that the C6 would dominate against a NSX. It would be a really good race though. So if I have offended anyone through my comments are wrongfully gave improper information, please feel free to correct me and I truly apologize for it.
Regardless, all cars are great with in its own way and is what gives it its character (my opinion). Every one has their own car that they favor and that is completley fine just like Okonkowo prefers the 712whp STi and that is what makes the car community great. I myself try to apreciate all cars for what they stand for. I just don't want people to feel that I'm tryng to discriminate on other cars.
If spending my hard earned money, I would have to choose the z06; however, If it was just money to blow, I'd take the nsx.
Maybe it has something to do with driving at gingerman (those guys love nsx's) but that car when race prepped with supercharger is hot as hell.
I would be willing to accept a few possible defeats from the z06, but I would take a good driver to beat me and I wouldn't be blaming the car for being out driven at that point.
Driving is not just about numerical gratification. I love the feeling of driving, each car has a different personality and people like to interact with different cars.
If it were all about numbers, i probably would get a srt4 evo, vette, cobra, etc. but, instead I spending more money on less performance because I love the way the wrx feels around the track.
I don't understand why people see this comparison as being so clear cut, numbers arenít everything.
