Re: Nsx R vs Viper Srt 10

Hmm, gee, I get more performance out of a Viper or Corvette for less money. Gee, what a choice to make.
yea id take the viper over any of those, z06 over those nsx's, but the nsx-r is a lot different from the ones you mentioned, it performs a lot better. the nsx-r is harder to obtain, but its the nsx-r that is being compared, and it lapped the nurburgring just as fast as the z06, with worse power to weight ratio. that shows that it had to corner faster, and with a 13+ yr old chassis. part of the reason for its price, is its all aluminum construction, the body, and chassis are made of aluminum.

But that's one of the biggest issues with the NSX. The Corvette and the Viper use steel in their construction and do just fine.

The base NSX weighs in at 3,020lbs.
The base C5 weighs in at 3,174lbs.
The base Viper weighs in at 3,386lbs.

Once again, all that whizbang techno babble at Honda doesn't do anything but drive up the price.

The NSX-R kept up with a Lambo Murcielago on a track which is probably a better car than the Viper considering it has AWD/580HP and is lighter. And by the way, the NSX-R is lighter than a regular NSX. To whoever said it was 3k LB, I believe it is below 3k.


new:
I was just at the Honda website, the weight is 1270KG or 2799lb on the NSX-R

Re: Nsx R vs Viper Srt 10

Yeah all those numbers are for the base NSX, the NSX-R is a different animal. Less weight, better handling, stronger brakes, and sadly still underpowered. The power issue is what holds the NSX or NSX-R back, they just need more of it. Also handling is much more than just skidpad numbers, although I am with you guys the Viper's handling is underrated on this forum (not in the real world).

If they gave it more bang for the buck, shit, I definitely would, just for the sake of reliability and "cost-efficient" parts. Even Ferrari engineerings aren't so reliable as they used to be, and talk about the price of parts.

Yea most definetly but tuner wise the nsx when really moded is insane just look at signals. That damn thing is a monster.

on another note ~

If your talking about bang for the buck well thats a no brainer the "noble m12" 360 hp 360 tq 55,000 and you aint beating the performance spec's it beat the viper with ease. 0-60 time is 3.9 the car weighs 2045 pounds and has a full race suspention the only down side is its U turns radius which is a Joke an amazing 27.5 feet my moms merc does it in like 10 or something like that.

Re: Nsx R vs Viper Srt 10

i don't know about the viper but nsx is hand made. Anything hand made is gonna be more expensive, and most people overlook that.

Sorry I'm wrong, the Murcielago is heavy. I thought it was around 3100, maybe I'm thinking of some other car.


Here's a video of a NSX beating a Viper
http://nsxfiles.s2ki.com/cs_pulp2.wmv

Here's a 12.8s pass
http://www.nsxsc.com/r/drag.wmv

I don't think the car does 13's like someone earlier said.
Should really compare a new NSX-R to a new Viper.

I really don't think the Viper would take it on the track. It's a racing bred car with incredible handling, but probably not in straight line speed.

Well at a track, it always comes down to the driver and how well he knows the car.

Different driving a torque monster with a huge 8.0 liter engine on the front, than a light high revving mid engine car.

Yea That has alot to do with it. But that was a sweet move on viper. But he also beat the 360 gt as well which is by far one of the best gt class cars ever.
