I went shopping for an Acura NSX. I found one from 1992 in red; it was absolutely gorgeous, low miles, and had a two-owner clean history. I went for a test drive, and that's where things fell apart. I had in my head how legendary of a car this was, but it unfortunately didn't live up to my expectations. Don't get me wrong, the NSX is quite good. The shifting is absolutely perfect, the torque curve genuinely impressed me for a relatively low powered engine, and the handling was without a doubt quite solid. However the steering and the braking left a lot to be desired, which I was shocked by, considering the manual steering rack. Perhaps I just caught a lemon, but left a bitter taste that turned me away from the car. So to my true love I went, and I absolutely love it. Check out the video for the full breakdown!

That's a lot of math to rationalize away a 6mph difference in trap speed.

I bought a white 2016 Miata in October that's spec'd almost exactly like yours appears to be (Club, manual 6-speed, BBS, Brembos, and no extra nonsense) and I love this car like I've loved none other! I feel vindicated that you agree with me.

You made the best choise, no doubt and the colour is so much better than the yellow (it will never be a Ferrari) not to say red wich is turning pink after a couple of sunny days. What i wonder is how you compare this modern car to a couple of vintages and how well one of them compare. The S2000. Are they offered for around the same price there? Newest S2000 must be 2003 or something. Miata 2016. Are they at the same price tag? Further i wonder about the comparason of the S2000 and its performance BEFORE V-tec kiks in. It is a v-tec engine and is meant to copete by using that. It was never buildt for torque and i dosen`t need it for the purpose the car is ment for. I am sure you more than anybody know that.

So, I'm getting a new car, probably either a Model 3 or a 2019 MX-5. They are two of the most exciting and at the same time economically sensible cars (if you want something fun). Of course they are very different. I'm a single guy and don't need a lot of cargo capacity, but the MX-5 is really pushing it and I'm not sure it works as an only car year around (we get pretty cold winters where I live in Sweden). I could keep my GTI as winter car and just use the MX-5 as a summer toy, or just get the Model 3 instead, but I would miss the top down roadster driving feeling. Hmmm, difficult decisions... :)

But if you want to supercharge the car with a 13:1 compression ratio, the supercharger is going te be inefficiënt right? becouse the combustion chamber compresses the air that mutch it cant really have any more air? or are you going to use low compression pistons to make it like 10:1 ?

a standard Camaro SS has a SIGNIFICANTLY better weight to power ratio at 8lbs/hp and considering it's at 3685lbs yet gets triple the HP. and you can get a 2016 for around 25k. if you're willing to spend a little more I feel like it would be a much more fun car considering it's also a FM engine placement with excellent weight distribution and personally I'd like to have the extra grunt of a V8 if i was gonna daily a stick shift it's like easy mode

@Engineering Explained I was also looking for a 2016 club, but I read there are numerous transmission failure for the 2016 model, and people had them replaced. Have your been replaced by the previous owner? I now have the 2017 sport trim, loving it... also black and it is being wrapped.

Great choice! I hope it brings you many miles of smiles. Is there a one-stop shop you use for Miata mods, including horsepower bumps/ mods?

Good choice. S2000 is good but new Miata is even more fun. 2019 is the one to get though. I bet that one beats the stats of the s2000

You were going 80mph😱. Are you one of those cov19 speeders they complain about, lol Family guy said it right when they made fun of the Miata 😂 But lets get back to the topic. Just tell us you didnt want to swing 60k for a used nsx, so u went with plan B. Im not a nsx fan, id rather have the supra ( but who am i kidding im not youtube rich, im laid off and broke. Thanks cov19 ). Its just a no brainer pick between the two. But its hard to justify 60k on a 30yr car Before mods i guess. But compared to the miata the nsx has more potential I say. And Definitly wins on the looks department.

Atleast get the NA or the NB miata cuz they look much better and they are problably lighter than this "new mx5" and i hate that it looks so tryhard edgy just like all new cars plus the newer miatas will problably doesnt have the driving feeling of the old miata plus THE OLD MIATA HAS POPUPS (atleast the na version) AND DOESNT LOOK SO TRYHARD EDGY PLUS ON TOP OF THAT ITS EVEN CHEAPER AND LIGHTER THAN THE NEW MIATA so a more practical buy would be the old miata due to its huge aftermarket and lower weight AND POPUP HEADLIGHTS!

I got mad respect for this guy and the knowledge he has and provides us with. Truly a legend on the TRvid platform and always interesting. I just never understand why he buys the most boring cars imaginable 😂.. Tesla, then that underpowered Subaru, now this Miata. If he loves them, great, more power to him. They’re just such terrible choices for me personally. Again, this guy is awesome just never could get his choice in cars.

Fully agree with your choice! Love the car (even the color)...tbh was thinking of the same car to start my build as well! As long as the supercharger is a reliable option. BTW, why not go for a turbo instead? Thx

Well Jason, thank you man!!!! I thought that I had all my sport car troubles clear and man you remembered me the MX5. I watched your video about horsepower with the mx5 and I went in love of it but I forgot it, and you remembered me it again, so now I'm thinking between an MX5 and a Suzuki Swift Sport, well and the Jimny (I'm from Costa Rica, Latin America so we have all of them). Oh yeah, and I want to bulletproof my Powerstroke. What a nightmare when someone doesn't has money (like me 🤣🤣). Really nice MX5 and I love it in black color. Greetings to everyone, stay safe.
