Nice job man. Now you can give those muscle cars at the Q a good work out and show what a nicely modded RSX is capable of. You going to the Q?, im not going to race this time..im just going to watch. Hope to see you there.

BTW, did the reflash change your 1/8 mile E/T?

Thanks. I am getting alot of detonation and pinging. Cali and bad gas, plus warm weather. The tires were not good enough to hold the car. I lowered the pressure to like 15psi and they still spun out. I took almost everything out of my car and that helped alittle. That camaro owner was impressed but at the same time was a little mad because he got beat by a 4-banger. Nobody was hating, everybody was in fact cool with me that I was putting down such good times and high traps. I need some nitto's or azenis.

Welcome to the world of the JRSC, the motor pinging machine.

I had the same problem, and I ended up melting piston #3. Good luck; I wouldn't boost any higher if I were you. No intercooling sucks.

Good times though, now where are those slips?

The car doesn't make that much power to be able to that. It would just bog the whole time and take a long time to get into the power.

Hey Wdsonny just wondering if you have heard anything about a intercooler from hondata or jackson yet. Just thought you may have some inside info.

Somebody posted awhile ago in the boost section about a traction control system that hooks up to the ABS that he was using on his JRSC RSX. Although it didn't seem to help with the actual launch, from what he said during the 1-2 shift he got 0 wheel hop/tire spin. I think it was about $800 from a company in the UK. Do u get alot of wheel spin/wheel hop when u shift into 2nd?

SDMSP, I bought the Greddy SP2 for my MSP, I am the one the hosted the sound clips for you way back when. What kind of times are you pulling in the Speed???
Also great job on the times with the Jackson racing RSX, one of my good friends has a Jackson on his prelude and it definetely feels quick!!
