: No duh... of course you have to heel toe it. All the VTEC videos showed was a 1/4 mile stuff and a few turns. What do you think this is amateur hour? C'mon.. The average driver is not going to be able to fly through turns braking and accelerating at redline. The torque curve on the S2000 is really high and you probably won't get all of the juice out of it until you make it scream at 9000 RPMS.
Average driver? Honda built a light car with a 240HP under the hood. It's up to you to go out there and take advantage of the horse power. Not the easiest thing to do if one is used to having all torque at low rpms, but be it. I wouldn't mind revving that little 4 banger to it's 9000rpm redline all day long. No soul? yeah, right.
: BTW... the driver still didn't know how to shift in the F355.
OK. The F355 driver was an amateur. Where the heck did they find that guy?? He must've been driving his first manual tranny car! I'm amazed he got it going, and didn't stall it!
Sarcasm aside, he still got a good time in the 1/4. About what the F355 should do. (Don't tell me the video lies)
And what does this have to do with S2K's ability to be trackable?
: Hands down the M Roadster is a faster car. Too bad we won't be able to see the S2000 on a track unless someone puts a roll cage on it. Go ahead buy one :0
I can't, already bought the M3 :(
But would love to have it as a summer car.
