    Walked a GS-R

    I was driving early this saturday morning to head over to www.carsncoffee.com (atlanta). I see this ricy, but clean (is that possible?) black integra gs-r up ahead. I knew if I could break through the crowd and get next to him , he would race.

    I see the two guys, in there 30's. It was strange to see guys that old with a riced-out integra like that. He had a monster sized tac, altezzas, big wing. It was just out of character for me

    I slowly weave around traffic, no rush, and finally get next to him. We both get to a section with no traffic around us and it's on.

    I put it in third as I hear his intake start to growl with VTEC. I get on the full boost song and just start walking away like we wasn't even trying, It was funny because I could hear him REALY trying but I just kept putting distance between us ;-)

    I shut down at the top of 3rd and slow down to give him a big stupid grin. The two guys look pretty annoyed and I felt great.

    Then he downshifts again and takes off. I wasn't going to bother.

    Oh the fun!

    Good killing! Are you stock?

    Personally, I've only run against just one GSR last year when I was all stock. He appeard to be stock as well. From a roll, I was amazed of how the WRX just began to pull on the GSR (it wasn't a muder but it was a steady quick walk away). He actually had the headstart too since he initiated the little street race.

    yeah, I'm still stock for now.

    I had similar results when I raced a type R with mods on the highway. It was my first kill and it happend the day my car broke-in with 1,000 miles. It wasn't as bad a kill, but a third gear pull is awesome in a WRX

    it looks like you've done a few mods

    What's it like to take down Vette's and SS Camaros?

    Time out!! Who said guys in their 30s are "that old"!! Ahh, kids nowadays, no respect for their elders!

    Good kill! Not saying the outcome would be any different but adding a passenger to a 2500lb car hurts your HP/weight ratio a fair bit. I can feel a huge difference even in my chubby 2800lb car.

    Why? 170hp NA vs. 227hp Turbo, and the WRX isn't alot heavier than a 2667lb GS-R either.. if you don't pull hard on a GS-R, then I'd be supprised!

    As for a stock WRX pulling on a stock ITR... ehh, that's kinda tough. ITR pulls away from an RSX-S on the upper end, and I know how close an RSX-S is with a WRX, but they're close enough to where a better driver in one car could make all the difference.

    In any event, nice kill on the rice

    You're right but remember the weight diff and whp. You're talking about a 420lb diff (WRX 3085lbs vs GSR 2670lbs). WRX on avg puts down 170whp vs the lighter GSR putting down (I'm going to guess) 150whp. So really not that different.

    I can tell you this, crusing at 65mph in 5th and dropping it to 3rd followed by stomping on the gas pedal, a WRX will pull damn good (although I forget how a stock WRX felt exactly). I really like 3rd gear in this car (and 1st and 2nd for that matter)

    Whoa! The WRX weighs in at 3085lbs??? I had no idea it was that heavy, I thought it was roughly the same as a GS-R sedan at 2800lbs!

    No sir! They are indeed that heavy. The wagons actually tip the scales at 3100 something.

    It's due to all of the drivetrain components sitting under the skin. In addition, the new GDA models are heavier because of the added structural support. That's one reason you'll never see a sunroof in one LOL. The newer GDA model is 158% stiffer than the last GC8 body style.

    Questions for you guys.

    How can you tell a GS-R Integra from a normal Integra?

    What is a GS-R motor and how is it different than the normal V-TEC?

    I am new to Japanese cars and I can't tell any of these Hondas apart.

    Nice run. I wish I could have made it out to one of those cars-n-coffee get togethers before I moved. Maybe when I'm back visiting.

    Hmm, not sure about all the differences between all generations of the GS-R and all other trims of the Integra, but this I do know for the 3rd (last) generation:
    - GS-R has a VTEC sticker on the back
    - All molding on the GS-R is the same color as the body (lower trims have black molding)

    The GS-R is the lowest trim of the Integra line that has VTEC. So it isn't really different than normal VTEC, it's just that none of the other Integras (other than the Type R) have VTEC at all.

    Thanks RSX. That helps a lot. But couldn't someone just slap a VTEC badge on the back? And what do GS-R motors rev to? Thanks for the info.

    GS-R is about 15 mph slower than WRX top end, and 1.5 sec slower 0-60 and 1/4 mi. Stock vs. stock they should be dead meat.

    Good luck telling the difference unless you pull up on it! My friend had a '97 GS-R and I had a '00 GS and it was almost impossible to tell the difference except for the metal VTEC plate on the back end.

    The body style remained the same for so long that you really have to have a good eye to catch the differences. Usually, you can tell from the wheels, but the GS-R had the multi-spoke wheels and the newer GS's had the multi-spoke's as well, so it would be impossible to tell if he pulled up to you.

    The main differences are in the subtlties....such as the rear lights, the rear grill, etc... If you really want me to go into detail, I will, but its no big deal..a WRX will beat a GS-R easily and demolish any other model. The GS-R is like any other Honda...no low end power. When VTEC hits, its nice, but its not even as fast as a RSX-S and a WRX, with a capable driver, should pull on that.

    Its the Type R you've gotta look out for and those are easy to spot.
