i have that mag. they basically ripped the redline a new a-hole. the only thing they praised were the nice recaro seats. anyway this doesn't look like the car for me. rsx-s is more like it.

Don't get an RSX-S, they are slow.

Why did you breathe life into a thread from March of 2004 to say something stupid like that?
Hahaha, he just did this to a thread from october 2003. He must be on crack, or using the search tool too extensively for way too random of crap?

Saying the S is slow is saying the RL is just above slow.

I've already bitch-slapped two RSX-s. One modded, one stock. Please don't buy a RSX you can find better.
It's no use, he's probably got 25,000 miles on it by now.

Okay, i know the thread is way over a year old, but i guess since it is topical, i can say that RSX-S ha nothing on the saturn. My car gives me issues, that I'm sure the Acura wouldn't, but for speed, I have handed a few of them there ass.

My fiance raced one in my car and totally destroyed it. The driver of the type S told us he runs 13.7 in the 1/4, don't know if that true or not, but my car still crapped all over it. ;)

All from a stop I'm guessing?

I find it hard to believe otherwise. Goofyguy had about a 90 horsepower and 100 ft. lb. torque advantage on me, not to mention weight advantage, and I could still surprise him. I can't imagine what 6 gears and an extra ~60 horses could do.

No, this was one of my friends...i posted the kill a long time ago. He has cat-back flywheel clutch shifter and intake. we went from 40 and i put 2 cars on hiim up to a little past 100. then he wanted to go from 50 cuz it was more in his powerband so at 5000k in second i gun it and leave him.

No this race was on the highway. They slowed down to prolly around 40 or 50 mph. I have the video at home. If you don't believe I can get him to post it.
