    Not really.

    Saying you know someone whose car is CONSIDERABLY faster than everyone's times I've found including some shop cars = funny.

    Fastest FI there is 13.2. Amazing that he would be two full seconds faster than them.
    eh, although most are running 13's when tuned, I have seen a few vids of them running 12's and there's a local guy that got 12's. Asian guy with a black one that is out of schaumburg.

    eh, you get the idea

    His car is completely gutted, and I believe hes got a roll cage. I drive past it pretty much everyday since he lives in my neighborhood and Ill have to take another glance today and get back to you. Its definitely a serious car and I don't doubt his times. You can take it however you want, but until you can talk to this guy, or actually see his car, don't bother trying to knock me down on what Ive talked to him about, or what his car actually is. You probably know nothing of the K20 motors and just want to internet race and compare cars with bolt on greddy and revhard kits to a person running a custom kit.

    Most kids in these RSX's with an actual turbo setup only assume because theyve got a turbo its going to be fast. Youve got alot of base kits out there that only make in the area of 250 WHP, which you can do NA on these motors for not too much more money than you spend getting your kit bought and installed. A decently built and good internals K20A with a custom kit is going to push a lot more power, as its designed by the driver himself, and he has the knowledge on what he wants and what kind of power he expects.

    Actually I don't know a thing about thek20 motors nor do I care, I know what I've seen personally and that's thousands of slow rsx's. I'm not another wrx kid with a catback and a blow off valve that talks **** and thinks their cars fast. I actually go out and race. I've yet to run across a RSX from dig or from a roll that put up a struggling fight.

    But on the subject of internet bench racing congratulate your friend for being one of the pioneers that nobody seems to have heard about in the rsx community. He's running times that like the STI from PR to the subaru community are very far off from what the rest of the community is running. . . the only thing is he's kept it on the downlow.

    Fastest is actually 11.9. For some reason the slip got pulled though.

    Also, this thread had me rolling. A person with an ITR has the gall to call out RSX owners as being the bad ones. Civics and ITRs give Honda's a bad name, along with RSX's. Might have something to do with the fact that every little kid with an ITR thinks they drive god's chariot. Apparently, that ran over to the RSX crowd as well.

    Its not that I don't agree with you - for the most part, the RSX crowd is immature as hell. But the ITR crowd isn't that much better, especially when you have ever ricer having a wet dream over having an ITR. Just my .02

    I only know a very small amount of the local rsx owners but they were gracious enough to let me use their lanes at their last track day and the ones I talked to were pretty cool.
