the car practically begs you to drive
it faster. every trip to work or the
store feels like a short grand prix.
the power is a nice match to the
suspension. sure the cupholders are
annoying and the top gear should have a
higher ratio, but otherwise it is as
exact expression of a small street
racer as any nsx or exotic. plus 100k
miles to the first tuneup and an engine
that feels like a motorcycle makes me
want to keep this one for a long time.
the high redline, hydraulic clutch,
extra balancing and carbon flywheel
make it feel like a formula car. the
feedback through the controls is
perfect. the body roll is great.
this vehicle is a race car straight
out of the box. you need to do
absoulotely nothing to it. no other veh
on the road can offer you this type of
formula 1 technolgy for the price. if
you can't afford a nsx this is
definitely the next best thing. the
more i drive it the better it gets.
handling,shifting,8400 rpm gauge and f1
feel to it
I picked up the car for a modest 25k. I
have never had so much fun in a car
before. It always makes me forget that
its still a 1.8 four banger.
I outgun Mustangs and after some minor
mods to my R, i pull that thing past
157mph with the needle swingin towards
8,400 RPM. Will there be another car
like it? Not likely. Will i keep the
car for as long as i hold a valid
driver's license? Heck Yeah!
Engine spins like an F1 car. Handling
drives like an F1 car.
higher redline and tires that last
longer because the stock performance
tires come to an end near 10k miles.
