wow you need to learn how to do math...Originally Posted by YZFWV
NEW RSX-S = 210 crank hp * .85 (15% drivetrain loss) = 178.5whp
02-04 RSX-S = 200 crank hp * .85 = 170whp
WRX = 227 crank hp * .75 (25% drivetrain loss) = 170 whp
these are more realistic numbers i dunno where you got the 190 whp for the rsx that is totally off. These numbers plus the rsx's 300lbs weight advantage helps to explain why the rsx has better top end. And obviously the AWD gives the scuby better 0 - 60 times which equates to better 1/4 times at the track. Additionaly the RSX has a pitiful amount of torque (143btq) which equates to about 122wtq after drivetrain loss. Torque like that hurts the quickness of the rsx off the line even more as compared to the wrx.
