I really like it, but obviously am never going to own one :P Hope I get to sit in one someday, maybe even drive it (is that asking for too much?). Basically a slightly more sane and analog Valkyrie....

Wait, the S2000 is a tiny bit bigger though right? I think an inch more headroom would make it a lot better. I'm planning on buying one.

Thought I would put a note in here since I rented an ND on Turo.

The car is hands down better to drive than the FR-S/86/BRZ, by a long shot. The controls are extremely intuitive (I'm looking at...

I think response and sensation is the key. Any cheap slow car can reach its limits quickly but it doesn't make it fun. If you can feel it happening and...

So which one is "CF" and which one is "CFRP"? They're all "CFRP" and they're all "CF". That's what the post I quoted said, "CF or CFRP".

As far as the difference between prepreg and wet, I believe...

Carbon filaments don't stick together. That's what the epoxy matrix is for.
