Nice car!! Did you race the SS yet. I am very interested of the outcome. I never had the privelage to race one yet. Hoping to soon. I almost bought the Type-S but opted for the SS because it was s/c.
hey what's up. no, i haven't raced an SS yet. my co-worker has a cobalt but it's just the LS. i'm very interested in the outcome as well. should be one good race.SS4ME said:Nice car!!

thanks for the compliments. for the record as much as i would love to say i took those pics, i did not. two guys from my hometown took these pics. they do awesome work. i see you know about hondata. yeah, it does wonders for the k20a2 engine. gives me an extra 1300rpms in the power band. dc race header and greddy evo2 exhaust is next for my to do list so i can open up the engine a lil more. stock for stock the SS will take the S but it will be a drivers race if the S has hondata, intake, race header, exhaust.CoBIZZLE said:NICE car man!! I like it a lot! You take those photos yourself, if so you're an artist with your camera! And as far as the racin goes, the Type-S isnt too far behind the SS stock for stock and from what I hear those Hondatas do WONDERS for the Honda engines with basic boltons, which you have an intake so I say it would be an extremely good race! Definitely say it would come down to the better driver, I would say that actually (to an extent) if they were both stock. Welcome aboard!!
my clutch grabs nicely for being stock. nice kill on the S2000 but i think that guy can't drive it right if you beat him as bad as you say. not hating though. i usually launch at 2,500-3,000rpms. if you're not getting traction on first i think you need to upgrade your tires. what kind of tires come stock w/ the SS?SS4ME said:Do you have to murder the clutch on the Type-S to get it to go fast? I raced a Honda S2000 and beat him pretty good. I did not think it would turn out that way, but I could tell he put little clutch into it out of the hole! For the SS that is the way I have to drive if I'm to get any traction in 1st gear. Not hating, just interested in the differance in driving technique between s/c cars and variable valve timing cars. I know the torque bands are quit different.
i have toyo proxes4 on mine right now. they are a major upgrade to the shitty stock michillens i had on there before.SS4ME said:They come with Pirrelli P/Zero's. It chews the tires up too easily!
sorry, but she only has the LS coupe. she wanted the SS but no cali dealers had the blue one so she settled w/ the LS.h8beingbored said:very nice... i am a big fan of acura and their line-up, especially the rsx... get some pics up of your co-workers ss!
haha, she already tried to race me on the hwy. it wasn't a pretty picture. i told her to get the SS but she couldn't wait for it cuz she needed a car right away so she opted for the LS coupe.CoBIZZLE said:Nah he said it was just a base Cobalt. But what the hey, tell him to supercharge it and then yall go race! LOL
thanks for the compliments. your evo is beautiful. i am planning on keeping my car N/A. my goal is to reach 250hp w/ no F/I. i know it will be tough but definently duable since i know 3 people w/ N/A rsx's w/ over 250hp.Novtec1 said:beautiful car man.... i used to be a hardcore honda/acura guy. those DC's sure do look good. any plans for some FI? have a friend here with one that is just sick on just 10 psi. again nice car!!!!!!
thanks for the welcome and your kind comments.87camaroPA said:Welcome to that site and that is one very nice clean RSX. And your freinds pics are very well done.
