I think you are being nice to the RSX-S...those times have ranged from 6.1 to 6.7 and in the 1/4 from mid 14s to low-mid 15s...who knows really, I guess it depends on the driver.Originally posted by Schaf100
Stock for Stock, it would certainly be an interesting race.
Neon SRT-4: 5.9 (est.)
RSX Type S: 6.1
WRX: 14.1 @ 96 Mph
Neon SRT-4: ~~~~~~~~~
RSX Type S: 14.8 @ 95 mph
A ways after the 1/4, the areodynamics and transmission of the RSX will probably begin to close up the gap. From a dead stop, on the street, however, the Rex will dominate, hand down.
It is very difficult to say where the Neon will fit in just yet, but with a few upgrades, it could DEFINITELY give us a run for our money. An FMIC is stock, enough said......
(Results are all from Car and Driver to make it fair)
Just wanted to say, I own a RSX-S and love the car, but its no match for a WRX unless the WRX driver is terrible. The RSX-S gets all its power in 2nd and 3rd gears, so unless the WRX gets a horrible start, you'll win by a good distance.
I must say, this site is much more cordial than the Club RSX site. I mean, I love the car and all, but damn people are so defensive about the Acura's. I mean, its simple math considering you have two equal drivers. I guess I figure that if you get a car like the WRX or RSX-S you should be a good manual driver (why else are you getting a sports car??).
Anyway, I know I've got an RSX-S and all, but I like the way things are around here so I hope I don't get all flaming posts or something...I have tons of respect for the WRX...My roomate's got a '97 M3 and his workbuddy has a WRX...I want to go out there and race 'em both, knowing that I'd get a great behind view of the race itself
Respect what's "better" than you, that's all I've gotta say. Doesn't mean I won't race one, but realise what's really up.
