    RSX-TypeS vs. Funny Car

    So, me and my buddy were rolling last night in his I/H/E Hondata #4 RSX Type-S. We were hanging out in this parking lot, when up comes a dude in a brand new Funny Car. He "claims" he only has an exhaust. I could see skinny front wheels, a 20ft long fiberglass body over a full roll cage, massive drag slicks, and three huge butterfly throttle bodies infront of a massive blower, so, maybe the guy was lying to me...

    But anyway, I figure maybe the guy is basically stock, so, we decided to run.

    We lined up, my bud got a pretty good jump, but, the guy still puts maybe, 20 cars on us by 3ft, and just continues to walk us. The guy WAS NOT STOCK!!! I mean, my bud has hung with his fair share, heck, even beat many top fuel dragsters, but, this guy walked us like a school girl crossing the street!

    I wonder what he had besides 4500 hp? Can you get Hondata for a nitro-methane dragster?

    What? RSX got toasted by a EVO? Yeah, right. Unless the Evo had a surplus cold-war era Triton missle bolted to the roof, I doubt it could take an RSX. I mean, everyone knows that after 60, EVOs and STIs actually decellerate faster than they accerated due to their exponential drivetrain losses.

    If you actually do the math, an AWD car, by 60.99999 MPH is nearing 100% drivetrain losses, by 65 MPH, the numbers exceed 100% (roughly 135% total), thus the decelleration.

    I'm thinking of dumping my STI for a RSX, since their drivetrain actually gains horsepower after 60 mph. In fact, by 100mph, their drivetrain is producing nearly 100 hp or so.

    It'd be even better if it actually happened.

    I've raced a funny car at a test n' tune day. I could barely hear my own car. His was about twice as fast as mine.
