Just wanted to take the opportunity to say hello to the forum. This weekend I took the plunge and traded in my Corvette C5 on a 1998 NSX-T. It feels wierd to have left the Vette community, but I am looking forward to learning all I can about the new baby...

Thanks!
 
Welcome. Congrats on the new car. I am sure you will love it. NSX prime is loaded with info, be sure to read through it. The faq section is priceless

Welcome, fom a transplanted Brooklynite and full time (hah!!) working NSX Tech. If I can help with any technical questions, feel free to e- .
Cheers, and don't worry- the wierdness will very quickly be replaced with pure ectasy.

Thanks!

You spelled it wrong, Mark. It's spelled NSXTASY.

Welcome! We have a bunch of former vette guys here...myself included ('87 Callaway Twin Turbo) I think you will find NSX owners by far the best bunch of folks around. There is no place better to learn about your car than here at NSX prime, with Lud’s FAQ, and on these discussion forms where NSXTech happily answers ANY technical question. I always found such depth of knowledge and help for fellow enthusiasts lacking in other clubs. Enjoy!
 
Welcome spookyp! The NSX community is much, much smaller than the Corvette community (no news there). But I have found that the smaller size of the NSX group results in really getting to know people on a personal level once you attend a couple owner events, which I think is a big bonus. With larger clubs it can be hard to even remember people's names, much less have time to really get to know more than a few of them.
 
Thanks for the kind words everyone! I've been learning a lot already from NSX Prime. This is really a terrific site...

JZ, hahaha, I love the idea of BQE racing. It's funny you mention that because my friends and I always joke about what a great game "BQE Racer" would make. They could realistically model the effects of a moon-crater sized pothole on a drivetrain when hit at 120mph

Sounds like you didn't learn your lesson, since you are still inviting people to race on the BQE...

Racing on the BQE?? That reminds me of Doug's "Pyramid of Speed" from his NSXFILES.COM website! :

Freeway Racers:
Next to the bottom are these guys. They frown upon Street Racers, thinking that Street Racers are 0-80 mph wimps. Instead, Freeway
Racers think that they are cool, as they go 120+ mph and weave in and out of traffic on the highway like a bunch of morons on crystal
meth. The problem is that these boneheads have spent money to make their car a little faster and a little noisier than usual, but they forgot
one thing: they are going at dangerously high speeds and they have itty bitty front brakes, small rear drum brakes, and they have never
attended a go-fast driving school. They forgot the Stop-Fast parts when they modified their cars. Not good when Sally Homemaker in
her 6000 lbs SUV makes a lane change at 55 mph without signaling and without looking for cars coming up on her at triple digit speeds.
They post on various BBS boards about their "Kills", where they passed some guy driving a more expensive car at 110 mph, saying that
they knew that "Name_your_Car" drivers can't drive worth a crap.

Favorite type of woman: Any female that is impressed by them driving 100 mph with a beer in their hand, a joint in the other, and no seat
belt on. Needless to say, these guys are usually dateless.

Favorite magazine: High Times. Mad Magazine.

Welcome! I also moved out of a 6 speed c5 for my first NSX, and I'm sure you will love your new car. I have owned 3 late model Corvettes, and the experience is great, but after the NSX, you can never go back. Now... if only I could only figure out a way to make my rear tires last longer

That pyramid of speed is hilarious. Read the whole thing at nsxfiles. I was in tears.

Welcome! Former triple vette owner myself (90 vert, 96 LT4, 2000 C5). I still read the vette forums from time to time and keep up to date. Never know when I may plant an additional 02 Z06 in the garage.

Welcome spookyp. It would be interesting in hearing a comparison of your new X and the C5. I came super close to buying a C5 before I took the NSX plunge.

Best of luck with the NSX
