Literally just got my ass handed to me by a rsx??!!!

I was on the highway a few moments ago, i noticed a noisy rsx and i was in the mood to play around, long story short, we took off but than had to stop because of cops, than i hit the pedal a good 3 seconds b4 the rsx did, HE PULLED ON ME LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!!!!!!! AND KEPT GOING!!!!! I was like wtf!!!!!! I made it to atleast 125mph i swear. Could a rsx be that fast? I know he wasnt stock tho.

LMAO...125 came to an abrupt stop when he *saw* cops.
If you saw them at that speed, they done been seen you and you'd be writing this on a tablet on county wi-fi that you had to give a guy a handy to use.

But yes...if it was pretty loud, it was probably a turbo RSX...especially a base one with the lower compression and 5 gears. They can be very fast.

Manny and I used to go cruize in Mexico and an RSX called us out. great races as its no fun when 4 cylinders cant keep up, but a fully bolted on RSX(i think its also a specific year) with a tune will destroy a TL in the upper speeds.

I'm sure it had to be a kpro'd 05-06 Type S...they were 210 to the crank from factory...but then with tunes and bolts on they were making that to the wheels.

Yes it was weird, when i raced the is250, it seemed like my car wouldnt go over 110mph, last night my car went straight past that! The TL move out pretty good on the top end though. No traffic, a straight shot down the 290. I looked over and was thinking i got an easy win, but GUESS NOT! LOL

It was very loud, i spotted the cop at about 90mph but than slowed down. There was also an old 2 door accord running with us too, he was sooo far behind its not even funny.

Lol.

Here's Yonkersracing in an all-motor RSX: FBO, K-pro, e85, cams, deep FD, hanging with an e92 M3.


And you're surprised an RSX beat you? What year is your TL again? Mods?

Fully bolted and tuned TL can take out alot of cars. I got a long mod list. The only thing i gotta do next is get my new radiator core support installed(next week), and than its time to start modding. I dont think yall understand how good the 2G TL runs. At 3400lbs its not a power house, but it moves pretty on the highway, it has better top end than the maxima i just got rid of and my old 2006 3.9 monte carlo.

Yeah, I got nosed out by an Aventador off the line last night (only cause that bitch has AWD), but with vtec yo and the 6MT TL's mad "come from behind" 4th gear, it was over for mr. rich man in the fancy-ass super car once I hit 90. By 120 he was waaaay back.

Exactly. Especially the second gen TLs with bolt-ons are scary fast. My buddy with his C6 Z06 is pretty intimidated by them. He steers a wide berth when he sees them prowling the highway..
