  1. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    I've always been a honda fanboy for pretty much as long as I can remember. But when I was in high school, like most kids, I went through a kind of a dark period of my life. It was the early 2000's and drifting was just starting to hit it big in the us. Being a young kid I got swept away with a...
  2. Auto X & Road Racing
    OK so some of you will remember my questions from before about alignments, and increasing my cornering speeds. I have always had oversteer with the new suspension and alignments, things are dialed in now with the alignment but on tight corners i oversteer at 50mph, i dont know what the next step...
  3. Auto X & Road Racing
    current set up: -Tein SS-P -235/45-17 F and R -stock sways -rear camber is either -1.5 or -2.0 (cant remember) -front camber is -1.2 (this is the most i could pull out of the camber with these tires and camber plates) i get an alignment about every other month, (i get it for free) Problem...
  4. Auto X & Road Racing
    I've been thinking why I get so much oversteer. It can very easily be because I'm a bad driver... However, I've put some thought into it and came up with a few things. Maybe toe-out front and rear is a bad idea. Maybe lack of side skirts and rear spoiler is a bad idea when using the Mugen...
  5. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    but not too much oversteer, it can be scary. i like having understeer in the rain, its so much easier to play around with and save when shit goes squirly! im sittin on tein ss w/ pillows and havent touched the sways yet, i wanna play it smart and not buy crap i dont need like a full set of 28mm...
  6. Auto X & Road Racing
    We had a rather gravelly event a few months ago, with multiple fun runs at the end of the day. Time to slide around like an idiot! When I reviewed the footage at home I realized I'd captured various degrees of oversteer in the same sections of the course. So here is a post-mortem for nubs and...
  7. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I'm you remember, I recently made a thread concerning the 03 Civic EX front sway. I'm also considering another set-up, instead of going with the thinner front sway. I have the stock 21mm rear sway, at the moment, and I am thinking of going with the 24mm one. However, I am also running -1.5...
  8. General RSX Discussion
    I took a turn at about 45mph. It was a gradual left hand turn and I cut into the turn to the point where my right tires ran over the double yellow line. Next thing I know the ass slides out and im "drifting" my fwd...best way to describe it. I know you can't drive a fwd but for the sake of...
  9. Auto X & Road Racing
    This is what you get when you're not smooth enough with a hotchkis competition rear sway on stiff setting with stock suspension and 40 degree track temp on Azenis 215's, so kiddies think twice before getting that monster rear sway... you'll see how my steering input is...and how fast everything...
  10. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I post this so this should probably stop any threads on what is oversteer and what is understeer. -Youre welcome and you can show it by giving me a +1 rep :tonguegri :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
  11. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I'm new to this but i have noticed that most aftermarket sway bars claim they will produce a slight oversteer. How much oversteer will actually occur? Also, how do you correct it?
  12. Auto X & Road Racing
    how do you guys recover from oversteer in your RSX? Or really any FWD car? I recently oversteered very badly on the street and recovered by easing off the throttle and slowly correcting. So what do you do?
  13. Auto X & Road Racing
    I have my Hotchkis bars on the stiff setting front and rear (with Hotchkis endlinks) but I'm still on stock tires. I went into a slalom section a little hot and the tail went out on me. Tried to correct and it grabbed and spun the opposite direction - too late to do anything about it. I...
  14. Auto X & Road Racing
