Think someone will take their NSX onto a snow track and drift it?

I'm pretty sure.. its inevitable, majority of supercars has had seen themselves at a snowtrack at some point. It's just a matter of who's gonna be the one willing to do it

I don't know about that but I know when it comes to winter, there's going to be some guys willing to take their NSX out and drift on industrial roads and parking lots.

Can't let GT-R guys have all the fun

It would be hard not to, not sure how you guys can put up with waiting all winter without anything as fun as what's typically driving during nice conditions

I typically don't find the point in saving a "summer car" and preserving it. You buy something fun, you utilize it and enjoy it as often as you can !

To each their own. I have a winter beater specifically for those cold moths when the streets are covered in snow and salt. Sure it'll be more fun to drive around an NSX all year round but the salt damage is no joke.

Rust proofing and washing it down frequently and keeping an eye on the rust proofing will ensure you an ideal outcome. Just have to take those preventative measures which will make it worth it.

Plus doing that it will take a very long time for rust or anything at the slightest to show up.

Salt shouldn't be much of a problem at all, most of the NSX's undercarriage is completely covered by plastic/metal plates so the drive shafts, etc are covered and protected. NSX could be driven in the snow as long as there isn't too much snow.

Ground clearance is another one. If you live in the city, you'll be okay for the most part since they're often cleared in good timing. Those further out in no mans land will have issues. Just have to assess the situation properly.

Being AWD helps, along with getting the right winter tires, and that should be the next topic... winter tires.
