last night i went to the track with some friends from clubrsx.com and i first met up with my buddy who has a stock 02 silver rsx-s. i only got to run once.... me vs. him (his first time at the track)

we line up and i powerbrake to 2.5..... i get a .532 RT and im off... shifted through the gears manually, but was a bit too aggresive and accidentally stalled on both shifts (for about a second each)... he got a bad launch from what he says and just dumped it @ 2k or so... his RT was something like 1.2.. at the end he was gaining fast, as soon as we hit the finish he was dead even with me and passed me... i ran a 17.2 :( and he got a 16.7.... i was very disappointed because like i said my goal is to break 16's.. which i think is reasonable considering i stalled on both shifts. ah well twas fun.. theres a few pics below..

16.7 in an RSX-S? :wtf: Aren't those cars supposed to be much easier to drive and keep in the powerband? I can understand awkward times in a 6spd GT-S, but an RSX-S? Oh well, can only get better from there I suppose (I hope) :thumbup:

Whoa whoa now.. I gotta take up for myself.

It was my first time at the track. My first run EVER was against him.

He FAILED to mention I got a 15.4 by the end of the night.. my friend (black stock RSX-S) got a 15.2 by the end of the night. I think I did pretty well for it being my first time at the track and a humid warm night.

Ahhh, mucho better :thumbup: 15.4 is quite different from 16.7. A 16.7 is like stock 1983 RX-7 times.
