Ok, lets not get into this too bad, but in all honesty, beating the 02-04s is not hard. The Ion is putting out more than they say, good choice on her car there. Of course we're going to claim our's is faster when they're so close, pay no attention to us. I'm looking for a new one to run, same horsepower, similar gearing, it's a fine driver's race right there...

RSX is a great looking car and quick.Sometimes we get into "mine is better than yours" so dont take it personally.Most of us bought the RL because of what you get for the price.IMO if the RSX was the same price as the RL we would all be in the RSX forum.I am still impressed with my RL though.

Yea, that's the difference right there, I paid $18,000 after taxes for the Redline, sticker was $23k.

They've been offering great incentives on the Ion Redline. Sometimes a slow selling model is a gift to those of us that like 'em!

When I was looking to buy a new car one of the cars I seriously considered was an 04 RSX-S. Trust me, the redline is faster (otherwise I probably would have bought the RSX-S). I love your car, but it has zero power until like 7k rpms.

And an 05 isn't going to pull two car lengths on an 04. it only has like 10 more horsepower.

Sometimes I wish I had gone with the RSX though since the resale value on those is awesome. But I guess most of us redline owners made up for that since we all paid like 6k less than sticker.

no i did pull 2 cars on an 04 its not just horsepower that makes u fast....the 05s have been given the type-r final drive which makes smoother power everywhere and i dont have lots of power untill 5800rpms but how long does it take me to rev to that in first gear not even a half of a second after that all shifts land past that, the thing is with this new set up slightly expierience drivers are hitting 14.6 in it which isnt far off an rl,...its a drivers race

whats even nicer on th 05 is the type-r cams so any mods i do are gonna create way more horse power than the older ones....with just intake and a header 05s are seeing 210 horse power to the wheels and thats good for high 13s

I've raced an 03 RSX-S with Intake and Exhaust and it was a dead even race. Of course he was alone and I had a little 120lb friend.

RSX-Type S isnt that bad but an Redline shouldnt have a problem beating an 03/04 model at all. Best i seen a stocker run is 15.2 at the track. I ran my friends at work, prolly about 1/8 mile from a dead stop 4 times. This was before my cams and my car was running 15.0 flat. (i had added the FIPK since i had ran that 15.0 but it was still before the cams) Anyways i got like 3/4 cars on him everytime and it just stayed there. With the redlines most of them running 14.6 they should be able to easly beat a pre 05 model. But u are right on one thing, it doesnt matter if it only has 10 more horses, its all about the horsepower/torque curve not just peak horses. They may have done a better job at using the horsepower given to u now. Thats why a 2001 Bullitt Mustang is only rated 5 more horses then a 2001 GT but it will still win about 3 to 4 tenths faster because the whole curve is alot better.

<---- St. Louis Ion Redline
Buddy has an '03 RSX-S. It's got so much done to it, though. He's trading it in this fall for an Evo 9.
