NSteXpo pix

26 October 2000
Beaumont, TX USA

It was great to get together yesterday afternoon for some karting (I mean bumper cars). I had a good time. Sorry I had to cut it short this year. Hope to see you all again soon,

Yes - bumper cars at 30+ MPH into stationary objects. :D :D :D

Really, it was good to see everyone again. I’m glad we had NSteXpo this year. Earlier, it looked like it would not happen, but Sam did a fanastic job (as usual) and made it happen.

Here are some of my pictures (I’ll post the rest soon):

Friday: rbirling and I headed to Houston:

Saturday: morning dyno session at Autologic:

Fastrunner’s NSX:
<img style="width:800px;height:600px;border:1px solid #ccc;margin-bottom:6px;" src="http://www.nsxprime.com/photopost/data/670/373901_dyno_Fastrunner_134_3457.jpg" />

Paul, Ojas, bsudiro, 2Dobes, SamBel, bling:

mmmvious & Dave:

NSXLuvr was the first car on the dyno:
<img style="width:800px;height:600px;border:1px solid #ccc;margin-bottom:6px;" src="http://www.nsxprime.com/photopost/data/670/373903_dyno_NSXLuvr_134_3452.jpg" />

Fastrunner was next:

rbirling had a little experiment in mind. Here’s the first dyno run:
<img style="width:800px;height:600px;border:1px solid #ccc;margin-bottom:6px;" src="http://www.nsxprime.com/photopost/data/670/373905_dyno_rbirling_134_3467.jpg" />
Hmm... What’s going on here?
<img style="width:450px;height:600px;border:1px solid #ccc;margin-bottom:6px;" src="http://www.nsxprime.com/photopost/data/670/373905_dyno_rbirling_134_3490.jpg" />
Those shiny things on the floor are... what?

...High-flow cats! Swapping the stock cats for the high-flow version resulted in 5.2 HP and 2.8 lb-ft gains!

mmmvious’s NSX in its lair:

In spite of being cut short, we had a great drive, especially through the forest, Sunday morning:

Those are some great pictures! It was great to see everyone again at the dyno event, and meet some of the new additions to South-central group. I'm sorry I wasn't able to partake in the group drive on Sunday - I got called into work! :mad:

In any event, thanks again to Sam, Paul and everyone else that organized this NSteXpo - it was a great showing!

- Darren
Wow, great pictures guys! I think Ojas covered most of the things, but i'll contribute some of my pictures too.

At the dyno, Fastrunner gained 22whp :eek: with only Comptech headers and exhaust:

Representing Formula Red: LoNFastNSX, Fastrunner, NSXLuvr :biggrin:

At the Burger joint:

A great turnout at KartZone, 11 NSXs lined up on Skyline Dr: :eek:


Part of the exciting Sunday morning drive: :smile:

Pitstop at Magnolia:



2dobes saying bye at Magnolia:

And here is Mr. Ojas, looking sharp as always as we head out for the drive: :cool:

NSteXpo went very smoothly this year, thanks to Sam and Paul for organizing this event. It was great meeting new people and seeing familiar faces. Also, many thanks to the out of town NSX Owners who took their time to join us and make this event as successful as it was.

Looking forward to NSteXpo 2006! :biggrin:

- Nick/Patrick

"After 3 days of being neglected, all i got was this lousy shirt." :tongue: - Our dog

(Awesome shirt! :smile: )

My girlfriend's co-worker, who is a columnist for Houston Chornicle and http://www.mixedmetal.com/, is very interested in posting some of the NSTeXpo pictures on their web site.

This gentleman is very cool (he let my g/f sat in the Carrera GT when he had it for a few days :eek: ) and was asking my g/f "why didn't you tell me about this NSX meeting? I would've cut the San Diego test-drive trip short to make it" :rolleyes:

Anyhow, I am just wondering whose contact should I give him just so he is authorized to do anything with our pictures?
