    I apologize for audio. But I wanted to share info on this topic. As we are always told DC2 will always be faster which is not the case. https://youtu.be/ivuz_joL3wI
  2. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I bought a rsx that has the Mugen coilovers (shocks and springs) rides like its on bricks! No suspension travel and very stiff, on a smooth road its ok, but hit a slight bump and its jarring like 4" pothole would be on any other car. I hate it! I would love to get a coilover that is smooth, and...

    So I planned on getting the Progress rear sway bar. Should I get end links with it? I read some reviews that the OEM ones had the potential to break off since they are so old so you might as well buy new ones to come along with the sway bar. For lower control arms, does it matter what kind I...

  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys I just installed coilovers for the front of my car only. I took it for a test drive but it barely made it out of the driveway. As I was backing up, the car would stop and not roll freely. I drove it a little bit and the steering wheel spun wildly and was just unsafe to drive anywhere...

    ok so I know that when u lower a car you lower the centre of gravity therefore enhancing the handling of the vehicle. but if you go too low is it true that you compromise handling? ive got adjustable coilovers and im not interested in looking "slammed" or even care too much about how my car...

    Okay so when I'm going like 75-80 my steering wheel starts vibrating. What could be causing this ?

    How well does this motor handle boost and could I up the compression at all and still boost it? Thinking jrsc
  9. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    I know, most of you are gonna say don't lower it more than 2 inches but I want to get rid of my ridiculous ride height since I'm on 215/45/16 Falken Azenis RT615's. I'm in the market for coilovers with about a $850-$900 budget. If I do lower the car 2 inches or more, what can I do to prevent the...

    Im looking to make my car handle better and have a nicer stance, its a daily that will see some track time. But my question is, will lowering springs make it handle any better? I know coil overs are the way to go but when you cant afford them you gotta resort to what yhou can afford lol so...
  11. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    What I use the car for: daily driving and some aggressive driving (never going to track) What I want from suspension: It seems I find my self avoiding all bumps on the road cause to me it seems like its damaging the suspension. Part of my daily drive consists of very rough roads and many...
  12. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Alright, I seem to be stuck in understanding the effects of preload on handling. Now I know while preloading a spring doesn't increase its spring rate by any means, Ive seen its been discussed that more preload = stiffer ride = which may mean less grip. So would a bit more preload on the rear...

    Current mods: BC n+, Progress 24mm rear sway set to full stiff, and Skunk2 RLCA. Front camber -2.5 rear -1.8, Toe 0 and 0. I'm lowered roughly about a finger and a half gap. I am rocking the stock wheels and some 205/50's I believe.. What ever stock is. They're not the best tires by any means...
  14. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    i just installed a rear mid bar and a c-pillar bar. whenever i'm on the freeway, sometimes i'll just make a really quick swerve to feel how my car handles. now when i do it, the front will move, and then the rear will follow about .5 seconds later. it's very noticeable and trippy. you could...

    Hey CRSX ppl, I'm currently stuck with a dilemma whether I should go for an adjustable coilover for better handling, or a Hondata ecu for performance gains. I'm currently on Tein S Tech and I'm just worried that the ride stiffness is not sturdy enough for track(maybe about once a year). As for...
  16. General RSX Discussion
    should i get lowering springs? new shocks maybe? whats some good brands? any ideas and comments from personal owners?
  17. General RSX Discussion
    Since I have bought my Type-S RSX 06 it has seemed to be quite a rough ride, I mean I feel every bump sometimes really hard. I have stock everything. Is this normal? When bought car had dealer install brand new tires. Before I had a Honda civic 08 and it was slightly better. Any suggestions...
  18. General RSX Discussion
    Hey i was wondering if anyone has driven an 07 ish civic and who owns a type s. Can you compare the handling of the two cars?

    My suspension setup is A-spec suspension and the ITR 22mm rear sway bar with hotchkins endlinks. I ended up having the shop put everything on because my front axle popped out when I attempted to do one corner of my car out of the four. I did my Integra's ITR suspension setup myself (ITR front...

    Hi everyone i'm looking to upgrade my handling. Im a DD but will do autox eventually. I can get ITR shock and spring all 4 for around 500$ CDN with like 40000km on it or should i go the sway bar route and get rear ITR sway bar. I also want to know wich will be a good sway bar combo for a daily...
