  2. Auto X & Road Racing
    Hi everyone, I recently dangerously spun my RSX heading out of Sunset at Buttonwillow (CW13 configuration - video link below). Would love to get your advice on what I could have done to prevent and what I could have done differently once my right side came off the track. Thoughts? Video...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I jacked up my front end to find the source of some rattling and when I started the car the wheels started spinning. They increased speed as I kept revving. This was all done in neutral. Is this normal? It's never happened before. Also, has anyone else noticed a buzzing sound when the car his...

  7. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I looked at a few vids on how manual transmissions work and still didn't get my answer. I know manual transmissions are made up of the mainshaft, countershaft, and final drive gear attached to the differential. When I put the car into neutral while coasting (as in move the stick shift lever in...
  8. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    So I just following the DIY clutch replacement and install the oem exedy clutch on my type s. However, after putting the transmission back and started the car, the wheels spin in neutral when I let go of the clutch. Does anyone know what's wrong here. Did I miss align the transmission or...
  9. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    This is a question for all you gearheads. With a helical LSD installed (eg. Quaife, Wavetrac etc.) on Type-S, when you make, say, a right handed turn on an intersection with wet pavement and you step on the gas, is the inside wheel spin COMPLETELY eliminated, or is the inside wheel still going...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I was driving today when I start hearing some weird turbine/whirring like sound coming from the front of the car and about the same time my A/C stopped being cold and became warm. So I turned off the A/C and then all of a sudden I hear a light clunk and thought something fell off from my car...
  11. General RSX Discussion
    i was coming from work just now, and where i work, there is sprinklers, andi had to drive through it while turning, and all of a sudden, i feel the car over steer(or under, not sure) and it does a 180 into the opposite side of the road. thank God it was at night and there were no cars around me...
  12. Supercharging RSX
    This is one of our runs. When I lifted off the throttle at the 5 mile mark, the back began to slide. I pulled the chute immediately and it deployed about 1 second later. What you do not see in the video is that I hit a marker cone at about 200 MPH which flattened an air filter behind the bumper...
  13. Exterior Mods RSX
    might be stupid but my horn button snaps into the mugen hub fine and is making contact but spins. would the only way to stop it is to use adhesive or is it installed wrong because the wheel is flush on the hub.
  14. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I'm still learning FWD so forgive me if this sounds dumb. My experience is with V8 RWD and from what I know, both tires wont spin during a launch unless there is some sort of lsd in the diff. My brother is also confused as his former car, 2000 integra, only spun one tire during a burnout...
  15. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    After finishing my last diy oil change (full syn switch @ 40k :thumbsup: ), I randomly turned the car on while it was on stands. When I stepped out, the front wheels were spinning at a fairly fast rate while the car was in neutral. Is this normal - and if so, what is the purpose of this...
  16. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Well i gotz a swap... and i don't have lsd... anyways, i turned on my car on jacks... so my front tires are off the ground, my left rim spins... since i dont' got lsd, the right doesn't is that normal? and its in neutral.... it doesn't move forward when on the floor... is there something...
  17. ECU Tuning RSX
    Well, I had hondata#4 on for about a week and I just put an Aem short ram intake on it for the winter (before it was stock airbox). I resetted my ecu and let it run for about 10 min before driving. First thing I notice is that my intake sounds kinda groggy (kinda like a gargle), when I hardy...
  18. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I Just wanted to know is there "pozzy- like" traction for front wheel drive cars and if so what da hell is it called cuz i overheard a convo one day and this kid said he's putting it it on his car and its a fwd 200 sx :confused:
  19. 1/4 Drag Racing RSX
    I here how everyone just spins there tires through first gear, cause they launch at like 5000 rpm or something like that. But here is the thing that I want to know, why does that help you? If your not getting traction your not going to fast right? So what I would think would be the better way...
