    Never get tired of looking at them, and they look SO much better when moving, than on pictures... Tons of charisma.

    Looking good, Jim!

    You can't always say this and not get in trouble but, "nice pair" ;^D
    Maybe the Boxster would like to be lowered like the NSX......

    Found a link to this thread on Prime and I see some familiar names here. Owning and modifying the NSX has been a great joy for me, and has taught me so much that I probably would not have learned about cars otherwise. The fact that the NSX has such a tremendous platform for modification as it's chassis, suspension, engine, and overall abilities were underutilized. Add to that the fact that aftermarket products and support have taken up the torch Honda put down long ago and you have the canvas to create your own personal masterpiece. I still hope to own a 360 too but I can't see selling my NSX after having it so precisely tuned to my liking and seeing how far it can surpass the car in stock form. I am utterly bored with the stock car but can appreciate them all the same. I don't see modifying potential in a 360/F430 in the same way, or having that same custom-tailored experience but I am sure it has it's own perks. The cars are highly desirable from the factory and there are no shortage of performance variants available in the US, unlike the NSX's Type S and R variants which the US market never received.

    NSX/S2000 owner brought his NSX to C&C yesterday and I have no doubt I will own one one day. The car looked absolutely perfect. NSX-R hood and spoiler, Advan RS2 wheels that looked fantastic and to top it off he has a Science of Speed supercharger installed, not sure on the exhaust but it sounded godly.

    They are so gorgeous... Owners must be having the time of their life driving these. A true favorite.

    me too but only have so much space in garage. It seems a sin to leave the NSX to the elements.

    I know it's an old post but for any people that where wondering:

    There's a guy on another forum who has been building his for a long time. He's 6'8''. Standard no chance in hell, now with a very thin racing seat he just manages to squeeze himself + full roll cage in. I think now he even lowered the floor a tiny bit (where the seat goes) to have a little more room.

    Nothing is impossible. :)

    Here you go, it's an immense project and well worth the read IMO:

    My NSX trackday project - GT-R Register - Nissan Skyline and GTR Owners Club forum


    Turn's out the guy is 6'5'', someone who wondered if he'd fit is 6'8''. 5 year old question, mind! ;)

    To be fair, he's still 6'5'' and fits in together with cage + helmet, both of which restrict space.

    I'll say, that's 34 pages I need to set some time aside to browse through.

    Thanks!
