    is this true?

    Although i absolutley love my car!

    2002 Acura RSX Type S (K20A2, 210hp, 6-Speed) 40K miles
    Arctic Blue Pearl
    Black Leather Interior
    Type R Wing
    Carbon Fiber Intake
    Bose Premium Audio System
    6-Disc In-Dash CD Changer
    RSX Type S Floormats
    Mobile1 Oil every 4750 miles
    Premium Fuel Only
    (does NOT have defective 02-04 transmission!)

    !!!!!!!!GREAT DEAL!!!!!!!!

    Its the top of the line! Would like $3,000 and take over payments. Good advice would be refinance the remaining through your own bank for a better interest rate. Many of the peeps on this site know and can attest to the cleanness of this car. It is very quick and will beat G35, 05 RSX-S, Z-28, -04 GT. Incredible car! Recently had the whole front suspension checked, pulled apart, cleaned, and reinstalled....not due to a problem, it was a rock in the heatsheild. Aside from that, it had a small 12mph collision, which has been completely repaired by Caliber Collision. They did an excellent job and you cant tell anything ever happened."



    alright this guy is selling his car on a local forum in my city. What i do not get is if this is true. a STOCK rsx type -s can beat a g35... a z-28... or a -04 gt. and all he has is a carbon fiber intake made by revolution. okay is this true? can it be? beating a g35? i mean if this was from a roll then i can see why but froma dig. i dont know.. someone please claritfy.....

    He/she is full of shyt. The RSX-s stock is a low 15 second car stock, a damn good driver MIGHT be able to pull off a 14.8 or 14.9.

    g35 = mid 14's
    z28 = mid - hi 13's
    -04 Mustang GT = mid - hi 14's
    05 RSXs = mid - hi 14's

    He is full of it. I have driven a few rsx-s both stock and lightly modded. There is no way the rsx beat any of those cars. The only way I could see this happening is if the G35 was an auto sedan, the GT was an auto convertable or older gen, and the Z28 was a beat up LT1 auto. So either he encountered all the cars of the above nature of he is full of complete crap.

    02' RSX-S with his mods will run very high 14's.

    G35c in auto will run mid 14's and 6speed manual will run very low 14's and even high 13's with the 05'.

    LS1 Z28 in 6spd will run mid to high 13's and auto will run high 13's.
    LT1 Z28 auto will run mid to high 14's and 6MT will run mid to low 14's depending on condition.

    GT stang in auto will run high 14's, and in 5spd form lower 14's.

    It is not neccesarily bs considering there versions of each car that are beatable... but its very misleading, because the top of the line of all the cars he mentioned would walk the hell out of him.

    Regardless if it is true or not....every RSX I've ever seen was being driven by a female. Not my cup of tee

    BTW...No Way in H3LL is it true. Slow car in all aspects.

    I dont know about that. I rarely see females driving the typeS around due to the fact they are only offered in manual trans.

    Also, there is no such thing as "taking over payments." You get your own loan and pay off the existing one *before* you are given the title. You can't just start mailing in payments for the other guy and eventually pay off his loan. Otherwise he gets the title when you're done!

    yeah..you are probably right...missed the "type S" part, and didn't know they only came in manual form. Good call.

    well i thought about this.. his car is COMPLETELY stock except a cf short ram intake.... which would not give him 10 hp. and he has a freaking type r wing which would weigh him down a bit.

    Yeah, where is he getting the 210 HP figure? Stock, its 200, and those mods wouldn't give him 10. There's no way he can beat all of those cars, or more likely, any. Even an 05 RSX has an extra 10 HP over his car, stock, so it would be a driver's race, if that.
