I just got a 2003 rsx type s yesterday. I dont really know how to drive standard so I was having my friend dirve it on the highway and we hit 110mph in 4th gear but it wouldnt go any higher then that even if he switched gears. Just wondering if there is any explanation for this.

Thanks! Matt

Haha believe me I never really drive fast but I just wanted to see what it could do and I just found it wierd that it wouldnt go over 110.

Danger to manifold.
lawl of the morning:rotfl:

my base hit 120 one time...it was just one time on the turnpike ok? i was just testing it...no racing :)
on the jersey turnpike? you're a brave motherfucker. I tried to get my base auto to pin the needle on 95south coming out of northern va but ran outta road somewhere near south beach Miami, FL:laughing:

You shouldn't be trying to push it at those kind of speeds anyway on public roads. Take it to a track where if you kill yourself you'll have a better chance of getting laid. It will end up in the newspaper like this "Bad ass driver in rsx-s crashes on race track this past weekend, while getting a road bj" Girls will flock to you like geese go to FL in the winter.

What the hell is wrong with this thread.

NO rsx's have governors (ie: speed limiter) They do have rev limiters, but that doesn't limit top speed if you switch gears.

Also, my base has seen 130 without a problem. I don't see how an S couldn't get there.

Driver error?

it cant be driver error. hes already in gear and doesnt need to shift. my assumption: fucked up car
