Fuck FWD biggest problem with performance cars is traction any real professional series do not use FWD for a reason. The reason is because front wheels are used for braking and turning. Tires can only offer 100% traction so FWD tends to exceed total traction. RSX is a great car honestly I'd keep the RSX unless you had money for a GTR if you really want a performance car. GTR is a total bargain that level for performance 10 years ago would cost multi millions.
You act like the GTR is an entry level car for young fellows or anyone in their middle ages... Shits like 75-95k out of the showroom floor.
More realistically for a student budget, maybe an AP1 S2000 is a good performance bargain or a used STi or Evo
