RedNSX ??? It's not a fix. It's a sort of system bypass to turn the car into a RWD drift machine for track or just mountain pass driving.

KennyLam258 "But apparently, there's a fix. Or rather, a cheat code—one that disables the new NSX's hybrid all-wheel-drive and turns it into a gasoline-powered oversteer machine."

Would this be the actual fix to cheating the car system to track it?

RedNSX Well he did say deep inside the menu of the car, so it wouldn't be easy to find but maybe still accessible through the infotainment system. Just need someone to go through every single option and function possible.

Once the new NSX are delivered, we should be hearing about people fiddling with their systems.

I doubt they would make it that easy, someone who works at Acura would be able to tell us that.

RedNSX Found this little nugget on carscoops:

Robinson also said that there is a maintenance mode buried deep inside the menus of the standard car in which the ABS and all three electric motors are disabled.
So we can access it from the infotainment system's menu?

|\|SX If not, what we might end up seeing drifting is a totaled 2017 NSX bought for cheap and given new life as a drift car, much like what this one well known drifter in Japan (Saito) did with a Lexus LFA

But at that point it will become a whole different animal, nothing even close to how we'll get the NSX from Acura.

RedNSX If Acura does come out with a rear wheel drive NSx that can drift, they can get rid of the batteries and the all-wheel drive while keeping the starter motor, the flywheel and the rear drive motor as an alternator.

1fastAcura Well I can imagine that when an NSX goes in for service and getting into maintenance mode is required, that is it also required of them to exit that mode. A key motivation for them to disengage maintenance mode before leaving the service department should be for rules of following the procedure outlined, mechanics won't want to play with that, not worth the negative impact on their career.

RedNSX If that's the case, even if it is possible the mechanics at the dealership won't leave the mode on once their done with the maintenance even if you ask and outside Garages won't be able to help either.
Does Acura already have something like that in their current cars?

1fastAcura If Acura is smart they'll make sure this mode can only be engaged with dealer equipment and software, much like how it is for other car makers. That way no one outside the dealer can do it.
