test drove...

A friend of mine is really into s2000 so i went with him to the dealershipe and got to test drive one myself. What can i say real nice and fast. (like you guys did not know that) I was doing around 42mph at first and by the time i was shifting to 3rd i was at 72mph took the car up to 128mph in no time. At around 6rpm i could feel the vtec kicks in what can i say awsome ride. I love my Celica GT 5spd but one big wow goes to the s2000.

Well the evo sure is faster but when it comes to handling its a game over for the evo. I was taking corners at high speeds with the s2000 with no problems.

some video i saw here in the forum that shows how MRS with 2ZZ engine swap performed better than nissan silvia turbos and an S2000...who knows a GTS may still be better than an S2000 on cornerings but then on again straight line S2000 will own it...
