Well, first race by a lot, cause I had a passenger in the car. Second race was by a little bit, maybe a hood. Third race even till I put it in third, and he passed me again. :( In all fairness, I raced a GTI 1.8 T, and smoked him!! But he wasnt a good driver.

I am sure he was touching his girl between legs while he was racing that's why he lost race.
heheheh

200 HP and lightweight make them quick littl' rockets. The car also having less than 5000 K also helps.

Both of you launched very well on the runs, and had your power shifting down pat. If memory serves me right, in the second race, you had a small lead into second.

Was defiantly fun to watch racing between two similarly powered cars.


Moerom and I had 2 quick jaunts at the lights.

First run I must have accidentally activated the burnout launch, cuz my car just fishtailed til I let off the gas. Moerom launched the truck well cuz he had at least 2 car lengths ahead and kept it till we shut things down.
Second run, got off the launch control properly, but that Lightning still managed to pull a car length ahead! The Lightning again managed to keep the lead up 'till about 70 mph. We weren't at the best place for a run, so we shut off the race quick.

Spring next year Moerom and I will pick this up were we left off tonight at Cayuga! :D

As I had originally thought, those Lightning’s with a good driver can launch off the line VERY well, and can manage to keep the lead on an E46 M3 till about 70 mph where we shut things down. Nice runs there Moerom! Looks like you've got the launching of that truck down to an art. *th-up*
I really got to see that truck in action after those mods that you have lined up! Ur in to lay some serious beating on the competition! *shiner*

Hehe, never under estimate the 1.8T engines. Some which are minorly modded are ready to just scream out "I own you".

I wonder what happens if you guys did a highway run. Woudl the Type S still pull or would hte inline-6 take the lead

Its all about power to weight ratio and thats it. You could have a 10hp car that weighs a few ounces, you will have 1/4 mile times of like 5 sec. Anyway, next spring when I get my M3 differential it will be a different story. See when we had the 2nd and third races, I was ahead till the 2nd - 3rd shift and after that see ya, the rsx just walked on me, there was nothing I could do. The 1.8 T though, I put like 6 cars on him, but he wasnt a good driver, so there is nothing to brag about. The RSX type S still remanis my nemisis..............

like mike said the 1.8T are faster only with a chip to be exact 45-50hp. a golf 1.8T with a chip and good driver should be doing 14.9 easily in the 1/4.

i said this a few times a coworker of mine has jetta 1.8T with a chip and something else. but he sucks in taking off so we had to go with rolling starts. we did one from 20km/h and i got a car length on him. then we did one from 40-50km/h and we were right beside each other all the way to 170km/h i just pulled 1/2 of the car when shifting from 2nd to 3rd cuz i could redline it just a bit longer then him

btw i was right about the rsx *wave* but i wanna try my luck with you too. but after winter since i got my winter tires on and don't wanna mess those up

Well there is enough of me to go around, but just let me win at least one race because I cant keep losing all the time, its not good for the ego :(

Yup, get chip, intake and exhaust/downpipes and you'll get quite a gain! You'd probably feel more difference, with same mods on a 1.8T engine, out of a Golf and Jetta vs. the A4, because the A4 is heavier.

My friend got like 14.85 in 1/4 on a worn out stock clutch w/intake, chip, and exhaust (no cats or resonators) on a very cold day where at times you'd actually see snow flakes. HE told me that the car does not always perform best when the weather gets colder and colder. Too cold of a weather and he told me that the turbo doesn't perform as well. However, recently, with still the same parts and worn out clutch (except bigger fuel injectors), he got 14.1 in 1/4mile on a pretty decent weather. 60' time being 1.9 seconds. Now he got the new aftermarket clutch and flywheel, dam.... that means 5000rpm launches in the future = faster 1/4 mile times

Why did you ever sell your BMW?? What happened to it? Oh and I sanded down the mirrors nice!! I got that big ass stone chip out of them too! Im gonna get them painted next spring when I get my skirt package painted and my mouldings painted also. Oh and next time we have a go, it will be after I get my M3 differential, which will be a better race!

mk--i traded it in to acura for the rsx.. well some $ off the rsx i should say... still had to pay a lotttt coz they didnt give me very much for the darn thing.. i took off my rims and m3 spoiler.. but i left the front skirt on because it was 2 hard to take off...
oh well, let me know when you wanna go again...
and you sanded down plastic mirrors? are you supposed to sand plastic?? lol oh well... thanx 4 the runz it was fun!

I still can't beleive I didn't get ruined by the M3.

Tony, I'm convinced you were shifting at 5000 rpm! lol

On the second run, you beat me fair and square.
Good LC, shifted properly into second, but let off before the shift into 3rd was required. The whole way though 2nd, it didn't seem I was pulling on you.

I still maintain that your Beast off the line will beat the E46 M3.
We only ran for about 200 m, so I don't know what would happen on the last 200M. Maybe the drag the truck produces would give the M3 an advantage, but with 450 lbs. trq, I'd wager that you truck wouldn't suffer any adverse effects till you near 180 kph. Got a video of a race between an E46 M3 and a Lightning, and the Lightning won the race, much like our run. Lightning out of the hole took a car length, and held it all the way through the 1320. Very much like I had predicted.

PM me your email address, and I'll send you the file.

In the spring, you and I have a date at Cayuga were we can do this properly! :D

I really wish I could have, I will try to do so next year for sure. It seemed like a lot of fun. Only thing about racing at that spot we did it at was that it was scary, cause you could get busted at anytime, but hey thats all part of the fun I guess.

It is actually probably the best place to race, its an industrial area, a nice nice road, freshly paved, well lit... cops don't usually go there... we raced for a few hours a number of times without being booked... sometimes people from the factory come out and watch... they don't even care! ahah

Tony, its funny how we declined a race in a 'safer' area and ended up running on Highway 7.

Now that I think about it we were extremely lucky.

I was a worthwhile race though!

Did anyone see us? Or was it just Dan?

Yeah, Mk, I raced a VW golf VR6 (01) and spanked it fair and clear. The problem is the front wheel drive I think, The VW's can't keep up unless work is done to them. Those RSX Type S's are fast cars.

Watch out for some of those 1.8t's.

APR Stage III, 300+ hp, very fast.

And Audi's 2.7tt engines, they can be deadly.

MTM (audi tuner) has cranked 602 hp reliably from the 2.7tt.

Check out a Stage III APR Golf vs. a Chipped S4 :

Well, its been a year and a half since I got rid of it. I got the car when the first came out. I had hondata reflash#4, DC headers, DC5R intake mani, DC5R cams, Injen CAI, motor mounts, hollowed out cat w/ some weird chinese muffler lol, and a bunch of other crap i can't think of off the top of my head...
I tracked the thing every weekend, eventually it blew...
oh well...check out cylinder#3 and my valves... *shiner*

btw--when I raced MKGINO I was bone stock, I musta had 3500km on the engine....

jap crap??? no such thing... better engineering and build which makes ALL jap companies eg, honda,toyota,subaru,etc in the top top list for reliability.

For example, compare a base BMW 3 series 320.. BLEH.. (35 grand,) yuo get l33t fabric seats and cool set of steelies w/l33t bmw hubcaps.. compare it to its competion.. anew 2005 Acura TL 270hp?? (37 gs) .. OR a Lexus IS300(37 gs).. Or how about a new 330CI coupe for 60gs?? compared that to a 47G's Infinity G35 Coupe which would rape , and looks way hotter imho..Whats the best bang for the buck?? The IMPORTS :) come with alot more standard features, more powerful, more reliable.. for alot less.. people really need to get over the bmw roundal in the front and back.. (I know i had that fever before.. haha) etc.. u get my drift.

jap isnt crap... my 2 cents.. i will never buy another bmw product unless its ///M... they dont appeal to me anymore and for the money i can get wayyyyy hotter rides.

Never heard or seen you run 13.888
I only saw porsche video(14.2) and another video, I think you hit 14.4 there.
The only fastest run I heard was 14.15 from the same day.

actually the 270 is right, they just recently changed the power rating of the '06 models to a rating of 258 but mine as well as all MY04 and up are rated at 270hp/238lb/ft

It is SAE corrected or whatever, just dyno'd a different way??

Same powerplant/engine.. for the TL..


the rSX has 155hp, notice that?
