Damn it, thats what I always say. I always talk about how I can never beat an RSX-S because it has a better power to weight ratio than I do. It is always about power to weight, no matter what. Thats what makes a car fast and that is what I learned the hard way. But an NSX cant beat an E46 M3 can it?? How much does it weigh??

Ok, the NSX weighs about 3100 pounds and the M3 weighs 3400 pounds, I think. Someone correct me if Im wrong on these specs, becuase Im not sure. Anyway, so the M3 weighs more but has more power.....hmmm that would be a really good race, I would love to see a race like that NSX VS E46 M3!

E46 M3 vs NSX...which one? there are many...the older stock ones, older type-s, type-s zero, type-r, or the new nsx, and the new nsx type-r, type-s. pick and choose then we can probably compare...NSX are very light since they are made of aluminum, and are made for racing...their handling is amazing too, so thats a car you can compare street, and track...since i know you love to go into track comparisons!

the new type-r will rape an e36 M3 in straight line, probably in handling too

No, the newest NSX with 290 hp and the new E46 M3. That would be a good race. But I still think the New M3 would win, I mean it does have a weight disadvantage but has 43 extra horses and 37 extra tq so....... I still think the M3 would prevail even though it weighs a couple 100 more pounds
