from a dig: dont worry
from a roll: dont worry
from 125mph: it will win (darn limiter)

They're about the same. High 14s mid 15s. Looks like a driver's race.

You're wrong sorry to say. I had an RSX type-S before this car.

From a dig obviously we'll pull off the line a bit <remember, they may have no tq but are 600lbs less then the lightest v6, a stock b asic manual> but they'll catch up and pass by 3rd. From a low roll much the same. From a high <say 50+> roll, forget it. They are all top end, it will walk away. Stock for stock obviously, though they mod well also.

I have to agree, I work for an acura dealer and the type s rsx's are pretty quick. PLus they have a 6spd manual, so they got the stang in the gearing dept also.

Seriously, looking at one here that's mid 14s with only a CAI and tune.

I hate to say it, but our stangs dont respond THAT well.

No, that's pretty much right. From a dig in a 1/4 race it's pretty even. Good luck on getting a RSX to go from a dig though, most of the drivers are smart enough to realize that isn't the cars strength.

But, if you look at their top end numbers, 60-100 or whatever, they're quite a bit better then ours.
