i am looking into getting a knew car, and i cant decide between a nissan 350z, an acura rsx, or a 99 eclipse gsx. i do not know much about the rsx's potential for power, so could ya help me out with that? my brother has a trans am ws6 that basicly fly's and im looking for a real fast car to be able to keep up with him or beat him.

Out of all three of those, I would say the 350z, its the fastest, and looks the best IMO.

I'd also go with the 350Z if you can get any of those. Faster, RWD, and damn sexy sounding as well.

The 350Z, then the RSX, then the Eclipse...But if you have the option for a 350Z, why would you think of the other 2?

Rather have torque steer, slower launches, and a more difficulty adding boost i guess.

OR maybe he perfers a better handling car?

The RSX-S doesn't have an issue with torque steer, I can tell you have never driven one. It does have some pesky wheel-hop on launch though. But at any rate, the RSX-S and GSX both have very similiar 1/4 mile times, and I agree the GSX is more hp/dollar in the mod area.

Okay, you are all over the damn place. That's like comparing a Titan to a Sienna to a Pilot. What exactly do you want? What's your price range?

Basically...It handles better, and looks better IMO

AWD + boost... 'nuff said. I'd go with the GSX. I'd never own an RSX or a 350Z. But, if I ever buy a new car it'll be an Infinity G35 Coupe, which is based on the same platform as the 350Z... the G35 just isn't ugly.
