Hey, this is my first post and I bought an 02 "premium" automatic RSX a few months ago. I've wanted one for a while but it sure isn't cheap for a student...

Anyway I never planned to race such an incredibly slow car, as it's just for daily drive/commute to school and work. But a buddy of mine has an 04 LX accord coupe who keeps bugging me to run it with him. Will I have more success, in a straight line, leaving it in [D], or should I use this sportshift thing that I have? If so what are the best times to upshift?

that's probably gonna happen, but this is the guy's first stick car so I pray for his inability to drive.

what's the rev limiter for this car?

lol..6800 Jag.

But yea practice using sport shift. You kinda have to shift up a little early, because there's a little delay and doesnt respond right away. So, shift at 6600 and it should shift right at 6800, but every car is different.
