I havn't been able to find any light weight NSX's. I know the Heavy(normal) one handles well but its about 130 grams or more. I have an AUTOBACHS orange one for sale if anyone wants it. Carefully painted and stickered by John Disher. ty bud!

I used to think that too, but having now got used to driving a spool on carpet (it helped to knock all the drag brake out), I'm faster and more consistant than with a one-way (last time out managed less than a 0.3sec diff between fastest and avg!).
Did toy with using the one-way with a 13.5 recently, tried it, and wasn't happy, and was instantly more consistent with the spool. Goes against what I used to think, but hey, it was faster... Maybe with a 17.5 it might work better, but anything over a 13.5, deffiently spool all the way, no second thoughts.

Yes you can. You'll need to modify the bearing holders a little, as the outdrives force the bearings to sit wider apart. Just take a dremel with a snading drum, lay one holder on a flat table, then push down onto the inner face of the holder.
Take out about mm of material, then check the clearance. Repeat as necessary
Should only need to do it one side.

However, do note, because of the heavier outdrives, you will loose some steering... question is, what do you want.. ultimate performance, or cast iron reliability

Don't see why not... worth a punt. I would guess a slipper spool maybe similar (weight wise) to a standard spool, but you would need to replace the plastic outdrive savers... and maybe shorten the front dogbones (diff nut clearance again)

Thinking of graduating from a TA05R to a 416WE. Use it for both 17.5 and 13.5 on black top with a spool. With the correct setup, 416 is king? My TA05 don't want to turn "round".

06 ARTA NSX is the last version you can use. the 07 is an IFS.
