Well the 458 Challenge ups the ante to a whole new level, it is just unbelievable

BTW, seeing as you're a car-guy, are you by any chance a fan of Top Gear (UK version?)

I am very much so (Like following UFC from the start, I too watched Top Gear and Fifth Gear UK from day 1).

I'm not so much a fan of Top Gear USA.... their humour is too forced, their chemistry is lackluster and other than Foust being an incredible driver, the characters are very poor

If I get a bit more saved, and can't find a decent type R, or a really clean GSR, then I am going to go look for an RSX type S.

Hit, get even more money and go for an NSX, then you'll be set for life ;P

And Charm, I agree, Top Gear USA is, sadly just a watered down show. It lacks what makes the UK original so great, chemistry between the 3 hosts :/

I'd say any option you mentioned is a viable one

I'd say go newer and find out the entire history of the car (knowing full well most young guys mod the heck out of them) and usually beat on them regularly and consistently.

The Type S is a nice car, but it doesn't have that 'X' factor the Type R has....

It's a combination of weight savings, laser sharp sterring response, gearing and high hp/litre that make the Type R feel special and posses cheetah like reflexes on the track!

Bud- I was soo close to buying an NSX (but our Canadian market is rediculous).

It's got that great aura from Senna and the F1 inspired background heritage.

It'll always have a place in my heart (may very well own one when a deal arises)... until then I can't justify the $ figure when a Z06/GT3 give me much more bang for performance for similar or cheaper $.

That being said though, the NSX has aged very, very gracefully and has incredible Charm

Well in my book what truly makes the type R's awesome is the revs, and the joy it gives... It just makes you wanna ride it 'till the wheels fall off... Taking a Civic to 7000 or 7500 rpm is just an undescribable feeling, and it's something that you can only elsewhere in bikes or really expensive supercars (Or rotary engines, which are, sadly, a rare thing these days)

BTW, I'm a sucker for a rotary engine if you didn't realize from reading the above ;P

I love high strung/reving N/A engines...

The problem(s) I find with the Wankel Rotary is it's poor gas mileage (for the small displacement) and big lack of power under the curve.

The FD was such a beast of a car for the track, that's where Mazda needs to get back to. The RX8 I feel does a lackluster job in everything BUT handling (not saying I hate it). I find their Japanese counter parts (Honda) produce excellent sounding and easy HP producing engines that take a beating and keep on ticking.

Sure, Honda makes high-rpm engines that last you a lifetime, but nothing N/A gives you a kick quite like a rotary, I once had an old Mazda RX7 (83) and it was a hoot... It was so unreliable, but still so lovable, it was awesome



It looked just like this, though the rims were different For me it's important that I bond with whatever I'm driving, passion over reliability

And older cars just reek of personality

100% Agree, you have to bond with the car... it has to have character.

All I need now for the track would be an Ariel Atom with Honda's K20 Type R S/C (Never mind the new V8, that would just be devistation)
