2004 Acura NSX Winding Road Impressions

In this first clip, we attempt to make a full pass with the NSX but Shawn experiences 90 G's worth of pucker midway through the run.

We returned a couple days later to reshoot this second clip. This time, the roads at higher elevations had a layer of gravel due to snow and ice conditions from the previous evening. Next time we will rethink shooting video in January :)

Unfortunately we only got one "clean" run of the NSX at the drag strip on video, and it wasn't the 13.0 pass. Instead we got the 13.4, with the cruddy launch. It's still sorta fun to watch.
