    Go Pro HD 960. Same thing, cheaper, lower resolution so your card lasts longer and data transfer happens faster and your hard drive at home doesn't fill as fast.

    IMO 1280x720p is enough resolution. Uploading takes faster, ppl watching your video online don't have to wait too long for buffering. However, the GoPro HD960 omitted the option for 60fps in 720p mode. 60fps makes a noticeable difference for fast action stuff.

    Drew is working with Honda designing the next gen NSX body. Everyone should hold off on purchasing the 1st gen cause the new one is going to blow everyone's mind. It will be so slippery and at the same time generates astronomical downforce numbers, only a 4 banger naturally aspirated engine is needed to out perform its predecessor.

    William,
    We can give you a free inspection, no purchase necessary...even though we have 3 NSXes. . I also know quite a few qualified NSX tech...give me a call.

    Ok, but Tony Fuchs ain't trying to sell you a car. He knows the NSX very well. Your choice of course.

So now I got license to do a ground up body, its modular for low drag and high down configuration, much more slippery and more down than the modified original did. Its a great base platform, the frontal area is exceptional so the drag forces are extremely low. I put it above almost any modern platform in terms of what I can do with it aero dynamically. Its really all about that frontal area, its totally absurd what honda developed all those years ago. It is a truly exceptional chassis in so many ways.

    The body has drawn on the late Honda designs that worked well on that chassis, but has quite a few ticks of my own as well.

    Nice to know Honda is doing something new, I have one question are you working under a NDA?
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    I think you misread drew's post. He is working on a ground up body on the "old" nsx commissioned by Fxmd -not a new unreleased chassis.

    Haha, see what you started now? Man that would be an awesome project though. I know that there are some forces at honda that have been pushing to want to do a new NSX for a long time. Although I would **** a brick if they pulled off a better drag value for a zero lift car. Suzuka san's team got the 35 GTR to do a 0.28 Cd with similar down numbers as the NSX-R, but the frontal area on that thing is big so the forces are still much higher. When you think about how much better the wind tunnels are two decades later, the NSX still blows my mind.
