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.

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!!

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. :D

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.

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?

They come with Pirrelli P/Zero's. It chews the tires up too easily!

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!
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.

Nah he said it was just a base Cobalt. But what the hey, tell him to supercharge it and then yall go race! LOL
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.

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. ;)

I would love to know what type of Camera you used for those pictures? I am kind of into photography somewhat and I really like your pics! Looks like the contrast is turned up alot or are you using a polarized lens?
