Starting to think Acura should hold some events for owners do make this happen, I think some other supercar makers have done this.
Sometimes its even carried out by some dealers in areas with a lot of NSX owners.

If that doesn't happen, then keep an eye out at your local autocross event, might be some guys showing up with some sticky rubbers to run the straights and through turns.

Most definitely, I think it's a great way to really show a car's "stock" potential.

I wonder if the NSX has an adaptable ecu that can change the fuel trim when you put race gas in it on its own... ?

I heard a lot of cars are like that or at least adjust for some variation in the octane you use, so if you stay within a few numbers it shouldn't be a problem. As for a big jump in octane I don't know the impact it can have. Best to consult Acura or someone that knows these systems.

True.. the last thing we want is to go from 93 octane to 110 and have a bad experience..

Potentially break some pistons, ruin some bearings, etc.

Besides wasting money on higher octane fuel when not necessary, it also requires more heat and more precision to burn correctly. This could cause the NSX to produce less power since the fuel isn't burning properly and sometimes, in extreme cases, it could destroy the engine. Don't see why people just don't follow the suggested fuel octane rating.

Because everyone wants to be the next premier performance engineer. That and a lot of people get over run by placebo effects

No ... it's because everyone knows when you put 110 octane or C16 in your gas tank, your car automatically because a race car. What could possibly go wrong with that ?! My buddies friend did it and he gained quite a few seconds off of his quarter-mile that he timed with his stop-watch and odometer.

overall I think most people will stick with what's recommended for the vehicle and you really can't go wrong with that. For most, the slight bit of gain in performance won't make a difference. After all, just look where most vehicles are driven.
