Question On AP1

Hi everyone, I am new here to this community. I'm looking at a 2001 S2000 to purchase. I've read around and did some research and found that people were saying that the rear end slips out easy. This brought a little bit of fear to me because I wouldn't want to crash it. Can anyone give me some insight on this? Is this a common thing to happen? Now I won't be driving it on the track, or recklessly or anything. Just regular driving on the street. Also I heard that if you are driving, and say you turn and you let your foot off the gas, the rear end will slide out.

You are reffering to "snap oversteer". Driving regular you should't experience this. Usually only happens when you hit vtec during a corner.

Andre, I too am driving a 2001 S2000. I love the car. It's the only "pure" sports car out there in the reasonable price range. Treat it with respect and it won't bite you. That having been said if and when you buy it learn how it feels and handles in the corners. That after all is were a sports car shines. God luck
