Several of you have made the comment that there are a lot of aftermarket parts for the NSX, but this is not true. Compared to other cars (911, RX-7, Supra, any American muscle car) the availability is pitiful. The only real, full line NSX suppliers that I know of are Comptech, Dali, Mugen and RM Racing. I have done a LOT of modifications to my NSX including a wide-body kit, custom transmission (short-ratio gears and 4.55 R&P), custom flywheel, sport clutch, new suspension, headers, exhaust, supercharger, heads, cams, cold air intake, brakes, etc. The latest revision (in progress) includes a Motec programmable engine management system, 720cc injectors, twin turbos and NOS. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions (or want my opinion, for what it is worth) on mods to the NSX. I have done a LOT of trial and error learning and would be happy to try to spare the rest of you from the agony of screwing up a fine car.
Gabe is correct when he says the C5 styling is not a poor copy of the NSX. It is clearly a poor copy of the RX-7.
It is interesting to me that the folks proposing Ferrari's are better than NSX's keep referring to 'heritage.' How far back do you intend to go? Ferrari has not dominated any racing series since the early 70's. Honda has more F1 championships in the past two decades than Ferrari, Lotus or Porsche. Ferrari has 2 World Championships since 1980. Honda has SIX. Three times as many. Porsche has 2. Lotus has none. Lamborghini has zero. Bugatti has zero. There's your heritage. Honda has also dominated every other motorsport they have participated in. Motorcylces to Indy cars, no one anywhere has a better record in racing.
'Everybody knows front wheel drive cars handle better'? Get serious, a FWD 110hp car will handle better than a 110hp RWD car, but no real sports car ANYWHERE is FWD. If FWD is 'better' why don't Ferrari and Lamborghini use it? Think they can't afford it? No! Every serious performance car useses RWD or AWD because it is better. It is a matter of physics. Any FWD car with serious hp will torque steer like crazy. Seeing a good slalom number for a small wheelbase FWD car does not mean it 'handles better' than a RWD car. It just means it is a small wheelbase car that has an inherent advantage at slalom. People who claim FWD cars 'handle better' usually base the claim on the fact that in FWD the engine is over the drive wheels. This does provide a traction advantage in wet weather, but does not make the car 'handle better.' In fact, using that argument would make the 911 the 'best handling' car because it has the advantages of both RWD and having the engine over the drive wheels.
