1991 Acura NSX: Schhhhhhck

January 31, 2012


It's no secret the NSX's front lip is pretty low. It's also no secret I was going at a pretty good clip across one of our many, many mountain roads. But did I think I was going fast enough to drag the nose in to and through some of the corners? Not a chance.

Sure enough, there was that sound. That distinct shhhhhhck shhhhhhck shhhhhhck of plastic skating over asphalt. And ok, I'll admit it, I took a little pride in that sound.

Not one to let myself think I'm actually that fast, I mean, other, much faster people have driven this car and never noticed anything, I figured it must have been some busted underbody panel that was dragging. But as you can see in the photo above, everything is right where it should be, albiet a little scuffed up. As Takahashi (he's one of the faster ones around here) had the car not long after did and experienced no such noise, he's interested in sticking a GoPro to the nose and making another run - you know, just to be sure.

Tough job, this.
