I forgot to mention, I also ran a fairly brand new Acura NSX at that same race track.....

I thought it was cool to beatup on a $75K + car with my little scooby :D

I launched... slipped the clutch at about 5,000 rpms.....

I had a solid 4 cars at the beginning.... I kept pulling on him all the way down the track....

By the time we hit the end... I was about 6 cars ahead of him ... if not more...

He confirmed this when he got off the track and said "Wow, I knew you'd have the launch, but you just kept going! You had me by like 6 cars or more"

He was a cool dude.....

It was a fun race ....

Wow. What were your times? That's a lot of car lengths for beating an NSX. I thought they were fast.

Yes, the C32 powered NSX's (97+) run LOW 13's stock (13.1-3) with a good driver. The C30 NSX's (pre '97) run btwn 13.9-14.2

Now, race that guy on a road course, that's it's high point.

good run. :cool:

Sweet race. I knew those things were fast right from the factory. Always a joy to put a licking on the exspensive sport cars. I love those NSX's though. One sweet ride.

NSX doesn't shine on the strip. take him to a road course and he will have you for breakfast, lunch and dinner. those cars handle nicely :cool:
