    Found this information on google and thought it might be helpful for those trying to choose a certain type of rotor. It sure did help me. Smooth Smooth rotors offer the quietest operation, lowest dust and longest pad life. If you have a luxury car not driven aggressively, this may be your...
  4. ECU Tuning RSX
    Whenever I am tuning to get my a/f ratio at WOT throttle to 13:1 kpro's estimated fuel changes completely throw off my fuel lines so that they are no longer smooth but really jagged. Should I just ignore the estimations or am I not adjusting correctly?
  5. Wheels & Tires
    Wondering about some of the steps people were using, what grit sandpaper and such to have the best turnout on a set of 02-04 stock Rsx wheels google suggested 80 grit then 300 grit but that seems like a pretty rough starting sandpaper, I want it to be smooth, and glossy and my inside Acura...

  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey I recently bought a 06 type S with 40k miles, and I have read all about the 2nd grind/3rd gear popout. I have nout experienced any grinding, did experience 3rd pop out a couple times but I think It could have been my fault. Anywho, car is still under warranty for a couple months, and I am...

  15. Transmission & Drive Train RSX

The idle sucks especially with the a/c...
  18. General RSX Discussion
    So, I can shift pretty smoothly in my opinion, but it's not the same as someone driving an automatic. I know a few people that can drive stick cars as smooth as an auto, and I want to learn how. When you shift, you let off the gas so the car jerks a little to some extent. I know it's the same...

  20. Exterior Mods RSX
    How do I get my interior to look smooth like in the picture below (look mostly at the center console around shift knob and e-brake)? I wanna get a nice shiny black or deep red to match the rest of my "theme" Thanks -Phrek-
