    Default Project NSX: FX Motorsports Development and Moto IQ

    Our project car is starting life as a humble used 1992 Grand Prix White NSX with 130,000 miles on the clock. Our plans are to upgrade the suspension to world class standards with modern state of the art dampers. We plan to give the anemic for modern times V6 a lift with a fortified bottom end and eventual turbocharging to meet our goal of about 500 whp with excellent driveabilty. Modern brakes and sticky rubber are also in the long term plans for Project NSX. Stay tuned and make sure to catch all of the articles!

    I look forward to following the progress! When I saw your white NSX in your garage a while back, it looked pretty much stock with alot of boxes laying around. Sounds like you have a long way to go!

    BTW, what is the ultimate purpose of the white NSX? To complete in Time Attack and thus going head-to-head with the FXMD? W2W? Show car?

    Billy, how do the NT05's compare with NT01's in terms of performance and heat cycling?

    Billy, is this the same NSX you brought to Dromo1 the day I put a "lapping fest" on you (not really-they wouldn't let me put the equalizing weight on Billys kart) a couple of years ago? ;-)

    The NT05s heat cycle fairly well like the NT01, but is a couple seconds slower. I'm quite impressed with the 05 and would lump it in the RS3, AD08, Starspec category for a street tire.

    Yup, its the same car and is going to look quite different soon

    Richard - do you need an upgraded pump? I don't sell a kit but can tell you everything you need.
