    hey guys i just recently got a CN stage II turbo and im trying to learn how to launch the car.. i went out to race last night and i tried all kinds of different things.. the car now has lower compression and i can feel the motor itself being much weaker then it use to be so when im just about...
  3. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Has anyone else had the problem that no matter how little time is spent feathering the clutch at 4-5k it always leaves the car smelling "clutchy" afterwards. I cant tell if im screwing something up, or if its just an unavoidable fact.
  4. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    I went to the track tonight, if i can get my launches down i'd have some better times, any suggestions are appreciated. Anyway here is best run, i was running full interior and 18'' tires, so i couldnt lower the pressure too much. Reaction ------- 1.263 oh well, doesnt effect the final...
  5. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    How high do people launch and whats revs do they take there motors to. I saw that K20A powered EF CRX was reving to 9400rpm, Is that safe??? I rev my JDM K20A to 8800rpm and I had clutch creep over 8000rpm on the launchs aswell as the diff packing up above 7500rpm on slicks though.. So far I've...
  6. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Has anyone done this? I'm sure you all have, just haven't been able to find the right posts on the board... Any success? I know that 1st gear goes real fast in these cars, especially with pulleys and all that jazz... What if you start in second? Bad idea?
  7. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Do ya guys just stick it in drive? Or stick it in neutral, floor it, then drive? Or the cool "fake" manual?
  8. Nitrous Oxide RSX
    Well went to the track again trying to get into the 13's but my launching is still horrible. Any advise you guys can give me? With just an intake and stock tires I was running 2.3 60 foots but now im stuck in the 2.4's and its hurting my quarter time. This was yesterday. Reaction. .010 60...

  10. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    What RPM should I launch at with ES motor mount inserts and should I drop the clutch or slip? W/stock tires. I did it once at the track and broke my cv joint...:firemad: I got really pissed and kicked it a couple times and it popped back in. :dontknow: Please help.
  11. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Ok, i got no launch limiter and ive got my hand brake tightened down pretty damn good. I rev to 6500 or 7000 and drop with the hand brake up and my car slides forward(with rear wheels locked), but i dont get enough spin in the front wheels to warm them up(i tried it today). What can i do to warm...
  12. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    check out my tires! I tried launching last night at only 4,000 rpms and it just spun both tires like hell. There is still tread there but I think its time for some new (stickier) tires. That's some un even tire wear too! Any opinions or observations?
  13. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    i gotta work on my 60ft (2.4 sucks my ass). So I found a nice stretch of road with no traffic and revved to 6,500. I let half way off of the clutch and my driver's side tire lit up and then my LSD kicked in. I held the clutch 3/4 of the way for a sec and then let totally off. I thought it was...
  14. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Anybody out there have streetslicks? *dur of course* but my question is how do you guy's launch your cars with the street slicks whether it be with 555R's or BFG drag radials? and what PSI would you guys be launching at? reason i ask is cause i've had these streetslicks for quite some time, but...
  15. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Okay, I usually pop the clutch. But I want to start slipping because I heard its better that way. Okay, is it like this: I rev to about 5K (Hondata) and keep the clutch all the way down...when the green light goes slowly let off the clutch as if i was driving that...more or less...
  16. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    I raced my friend last night, and he has a BMW i forget which model, around a 94 model year, w/ intake exhaust chip. Basically he destroyed me at the start. I was finally on his bumper and about to pass at 115 and then he slowed down. I have only driven stick a month and really need to know...
  17. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Hello everyone Nick here with a dilemma. A while back I ran a personal best of [email protected] (app.) My reaction time was a .583 and my 60ft was 2.365. I think if I get my 60ft down to a respectable 2.28 or so I will run 14.8-14.9 all day. The other problem is no $ for tires. So i run my stock...
  18. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX

  19. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX

  20. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    Where are you all dumping (those who side-step) Where are you shifting? (rpm, 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4) Powershift, quickshift or grannyshift? Personally, as it seems to me, the car is better feathered then dumping. 4-4.5k feather off and power-pop 2nd way before RL to keep revs under 5800 or so...
