I was reading the new flyer for the 2006 S2000 and it says that it has some gay um...traction control anti oversteer shit, to me this would be "VDC" "Vehicle Directional Control" since I work for nissan which sucks :td However I know on G35 Coupes and sedans etc you can turn the VDC off which does allow you to get sideways but not quite how you could if that gay shit wasn't there in the first place. I just want to be 100% positive that the S2000 hasn't become a bastardized POS that won't get sideways and stay sideways and won't do a burnout because then I just wouldn't want one.

um.... I dont know about any of that... haven't read up much on the 2006 models.

but if you're really that concerned... why not just buy an 04 or 05?

I havnt driven one but I do know their is an on/off button for the VDC and when it is off it is off. The VDC also will not stop the car from doing a burnout or breaking sideways cuz I have seen an 06 do a big ass burnout and break it sideways in front of me in an intersection so I would guess that when it is off it is off completely

Test drove an 06 yesterday and elft the traction control/vehicle control on and the car began to get sideways 1 or 2x so I might just try and get one. I want an 06 because theres a pretty good deal going on them for a lease and then into a buy.

I drove it and it drives better than any nissan piece of shit, including the 350z and the G35, I've driven both hundreds of times as I work at Nissan and worked at Infiniti

Drive by wire is the best!! Also you can get sideways.. My wife is a sales manager for a Honda dealership so before I bought, I tested and played.. it did piss her off... She has been selling Hondas for five years and this is the year we decided to buy the S..

yeah I test drove both of those when I was buying my S...... needless to say, you can see which one I thought was better. it just felt tighter, and more connected than either of those cars.

The Z and the G35 have drive by wire as well, and the fact that the Z and the G35 have more torque AT IDLE than the S2K produces at FULL SONG is a pretty bold testament to the Nissan VQ motor.

I admit, while the S2K can outhandle the Z on a curvy racetrack, in all other practical applications, ie: daily driving, the S2K is but a Civic with a Miata soul to any Nissan on the street.

Maybe if you go to driving school again, and learn how to drive something with more than 240hp....you won't be so intimidated.

Oh, and you should definitely leave Nissan and go work for Honda, cuz I bet they could use your amazing knowledge and expertise!!!
LMAO :lol2


Dumbshit. :bash
