Best Handling Car I have ever Driven!

I just got my Enkei RS5's with Kumho's in and installed. Holy ****! A coulpe weeks ago I finally got Eibach and KYB's, but my bald Dunlop 8000's could not keep up with them. This is now the best handling car I have ever driven. It feels like it has more grip the the M3 I drove, and is every bit as confidence inspiring. Understeer is completely gone, I went in a fast corner, abrutly got completely off the throttle, and the car went into a perfect 4 wheel drift, and so controlable! My best bud has a 1st Gen RX-7 GSL SE (the best one), with suspenion mods. That car has a perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and I handle so much better with 60%+ of my weight on my front tires!! I just fell in love again!

Noah was in the Union a few days ago, and he was telling us about your rims. Upgraded wheels and tires are awesome - people with B13s talk about headers and CAIs, but I wouldn't do anything before plus-sizing rims.

If you want to sell those NX2000 stockers, I know someone who might be interested. :cool:

If you look at some of the cars on the list they still dominate even in 2k1..... The NSX, Vette, Porchse, Miatia, etc. I'm sure we are all bias though hehehe.

I love my NX - most fun car I've ever driven - and supposedly in the SR20 family the G20 and NX are supposed to have the best handling and owning both the NX win's in every category (except the plush leather interior).

R&T Best Handling NX

Am I wrong or is the NX the only FWD car on that list? All the rest are RWD or 4WD...

I went to usedmagazines.com and ordered that ish.

It'll be on my site as soon as I get it and put down my beer.

What I mean is has one of the editors/writers of the mag driven one? You know they probably driver newer imports like the one you've mentioned... However, until I drove my NX I thought it was just another SR20 powered car - so far its my fave! Honda has always stolen the spotlight when it comes to imports - most of my friends know of the CRX etc, but when I pull up inthe NX they are like WTF? What is THAT car lol....
