So whats been up havn't heard much in a while anyone coming out with slicks or those hoosier dr's coming out anytime soon? Getting annoying not able to put this power to use at the track. I know u can fit a 15 doing base brakes or shaving the caliper but i was just wondering if anytime is going to come out for this year since it's almost over with anyway. :confused:

Im not sure about what they are running, but If you check out the Skunk2 RSX vid on the CRSX main page they are running slicks and they put out a 9 sec run...pretty sweet for a FR car. Dont know what kind or size they are though.

In order to run the proper slick (not drag radial) on an RSX right now you have to step down to a 15" rim. I did it on mine and it took about an hour or so of shaving the caliper to make it work.

So it's safe to do this? And how much would a set of slicks/rims run for me to run slicks on the front i don't need skinnes just the front slicks.

The price varies, but slicks run around $150+/each. The wheels sell for $223/each shipped here on the site.

It is more than safe to do because all you are doing is taking down the material that makes up the caliper, it doesn't get close to the pads or anything else.

just wondering, the thought kinda popped into my head two seconds ago after reading the thread, but what about the stock axles? are they able enough to handle the launch of a slick? thanks ahead of time.

Most have been doing ok, but I am running a set from CircuitWorx right now and really like them. Enjo also has some out but I don't have any experience with them. I know that Drive Shaft Shop has some but I have heard nothing but constant problems lately from quite a few customers.

[QUOTE='02WhiteTypeS]The Hoosiers are due out this month 225/50 16's. I'm not sure about price yet, but they will definitely be worth it. They are DOT approved and will fit the stock rsx rim. We will be selling them on our website as soon as there available... www.teamxxxracing.com[/QUOTE]

PM first! ;)

The only way you are going to know for sure is when they are released. You would be amazed on how companies hold products for one reason or another. With SEMA around the corner, I bet you would probably see them released.

I believe they use the 24.5/8.5/15 slicks from M+H.

You also need some spacers (I forget which sizes, but it is more than 1 on each side), most use longer studs and open ended lugs.

Do a serch for NSTLLMNGR, he had some pics and what not of how much to shave off the calipers.

Seems like too much work to put slicks on the rsx, i think i might wait for teh Hoosier dr's.

I hear ya there, I want to stay sleeper style anyway with the stockies on. I don't like it when cars pull up and they have dif rims on the front than the back. That and with the hoosiers you can drive to the track instead of hauling the rims and jack to the track and finding a place to put them.
