    Image Unavailable, Please Login I cruised back from Santa Clarita and stopped by Willow Springs— I was checking out a beautiful Suburu and I thought I should pay some attention to the stunning red NSX next to it. A few weeks ago a Black one passed me heading up to Tehachapi.

    Guy says the NSX is putting down 700hp to the wheels. It was a very low car count so I wished I’d brought a track car to Alfa event rather than my trap shoot with a score of only 88.
    The prototype came thru my hometown 4 years ago.

    That some pretty decent HP to the wheels!
    Nice red car in the background too.

    Great day for a drive. Cruising back roads with lots of twisties. Got close to Costco for gas and tons of thumbs ups, waves, and pictures.
    Most of my drives are away from everyone on back roads so it’s always fun to see reactions when I get around people.
    The gearbox is insane... it just knows. Brakes too.

    Lol. Every time I see your license plate, I Crack a smile.

    Shame you had to start a new thread. If you get our weather in a few days, you should be driving in gorgeous early spring weather for a few more days. It was awesome here today. Wife and I played hookie. The Cali is in the shop for its annual service, so we took the beater and tore up the unpaved roads near us...T

    No idea why they were merged. Really odd. No response why.

    I love the plate. Wonder how many have no idea what it means. If you didn’t know - Acura/Honda named some of the paint colors after various F1 venues ... Casino white, 130R white, Valencia red, etc. So I thought go for the whole track with it’s NSX history - Suzuka is perfect.

    I love the design of the door and how it integrates with the quarter panel for the cooling duct and flying buttress. Design; it’s important (from @jm2).

    Is your Cali back yet? Hope your weather is holding out down there.

    Yup! Got her back yesterday.
    I like to take her out for a long drive after I get her back from annual service. Weather was not great today, overcast, but I can't complain about temps in the 50s for February.

    I'll have to get the wife to show me how the CD works, so I can rock some Jay Kay in the Cali!

    First time driving the NSX after dark. Big moon getting brighter.

    Took tips from other owners and raised the headlights a little a while back. Finally got to try them. Some think out of the factory they’re a little low. About 5 hours on the road. Good drive. Handled great, even on 66 which is a complete mess with construction and traffic. Mainly Sport or Quiet mode to soften the suspension. Seats are great... steering, brakes, power, all fantastic.

    Enjoyed the drive, listened to good music, and visited with friends.
