Hey i was just saying what the kid told me, i mean he might have been bullshitting me i dont know. And he wasnt that bad of a driver, i mean he caught 3rd. And why is it so hard to believe i beat one? that wasnt the first one i beat, ive beat 2 of them. From a stand still i will kill them everytime, cause i have all low end. I mean i could understand if i only had like a intake and catback and trying to say i won, but i mean i have a good bit of mods done to my engine.

was it right-hand drive? He was obviously bs'ing right there if it wasnt.

good kill...

but it wasnt an Integra Type-R. Those stock come with 220/158, 6-speed, LSD, and a 4.7 final drive. Thats easily in the high 14's. you sure it wasnt just a base-model RSX with different badges?

Even with 200+ hp the car is a little heavy. I think around 3200 pounds or so. Not really shure just what i herd. Also one of my buddys has a type s and i have not riddin in it yet But he says that he is not impressed at all, And that it is all hype. My brother inlaw bet the stank off of a type s with his 92 civic hatch. Both of them had header ,intake and full exhust, but my brother in law also had a gsr motor in his hatch.

3200 in an S??? no, its about the same weight as an SVTF (around 2750). And Id hope your bro-in-law beat the stank off of the S in his 92 hatch (weighing about 2100lbs) with a GSR motor. That alone is good for a mid 14 sec run.

Well i think the reason people are reluctant to believe you is the fact that the RSX S can be easily in the 14's with just a pro driver and some sticky rubber. And the mod list you have brings you up to what HP range, 160, 170 maybe (not sure how much it adds, simply a guess). even with the weight, i think that if he knew how to drive well, then the outcome probably would be different. Not that it isnt a kill anymore, but its just that you make it seem different.

Well, im not that bad of a driver, acually ive been racing sprint cars for years, dragged many times ect. When you say a race, cars dont mean shit, it comes down to the driver. I mean u can take 2 identical cars, a good driver bad driver, and the good driver can b a car length ahead, both have the same power. I mean i have beat a mustang gt before, only because he wasnt the best of driver, and ive been racing for years.

so, your saying that if the best driver in the world is driving a stock focus, and an average, or even below average driver is behind the wheel of a mustang cobra, that the focus will win simply because its a better driver?

ok, you in your focus against an average or below average driver in a viper... who would win that race?

yes, if cars are similar, it comes down to driver. but there are some races that even a great driver will not make a huge differance.

a bad driver (1/4) will do about 1- 1.5 seconds worse then the estimated time for a good driver to do. So a Mustang will still be even with a SVTF (if not better) with a horrible driver behind the wheel.
