Ok, I decided to go poking around the RSX forums and see if all RSX owners are as annoying as our friend and pal RSXRicerBoy. I know we have another rsx owner on the board and he seems like a good guy, so i was curious. I happened to stumble across a thread on RSXworld about the WRX vs. RSX.... I found it interesting. Here's the first post:
I hate to bring up the whole WRX/RSX comparison again, but RSX Blondie and I did a comparison, and the results were very disappointing.
Hypothesis: Everyone knows that the WRX is faster from a standing start due to the AWD advantage. Studying magazine dynos of both cars, however, made me think that the RSX would be faster after the launch, and would catch the wrx eventually. The RSX S and the WRX both seem to dyno around 170hp. The WRX is roughly 200-300lbs heavier than the RSX, so one would think that on the straights the RSX would be faster. I was almost SURE this would be the case.
The test: RSXBlondie and her friend were in her wrx and I was alone in the RSX. We tested on Rt. 80 in NJ. I outweigh blondie and her friend by about 50lbs. I had a couple of additional things in the car...so that added about another 20 lbs or so. Still I thought the weight advantage would favor the RSX. We did multiple pulls from 60mph in third gear. The WRX pulled ever so slightly every time.
Conclusion: I can't explain it. There is no reason why that should be the case, but it is. The WRX is just flat-out faster. To tell you the truth I can't even say that the RSX handles a whole lot better than the WRX does. It just seems like the WRX is better in every way (peformance-wise). I am very disappointed. If anyone has an explanation of how this could be..I'd love to hear it.
Here's a link to the thread if you want to take a look at the rest: http://www.rsxworld.com/forums/showt...0&pagenumber=1
So, it is my conclusion after reading that thread that RSXRicerBoy is simply busting balls for the sake of busting balls. Other RSX drivers seem to have respect for the WRX.
