    :cry:

    I don't wanna sell my car. After having her parked for a couple weeks I Just took her for a good rip down glendale at WOT. Compared to my new Accord the SiR feels like a rocket :pissed:

    Someone buy it quick so I don't change my mind :D haha

    Solution: Sell both, and buy my CBR600. Cheaper AND faster. :)

    Not quite, but it's good :D Something about the DOHC screaming at 83-8400 RPM's is just like music to me, and since my deck isnt working right now, it IS my music, hahah

    Yeah, but the little alarm ding when you approach redline just isn't the same as hearing the 2nd set of lobes activating ;)

    PS. Greddy Type-S Dual sequential BOV owns you both. :finger: j/k

    And I make just as much power :D I think anyways.. I wouldnt care if that thing only revved to 5000 as long as I could hook it sideways at any given time :D

    I always meant to ask you Dave, where is the peak on the RX-8??

    The RX8 has a small warning chime/ding that sounds when he approaches close to redline. Instead of a shift light, it's a shift chime :D

    Yeah, it makes as much power when I'm stationary on a dyno and the computer is freaking out... :)

    Officially, my car makes 237hp @8600rpm. But, once somebody figures out a way to get the pre-EPA emissions crackdown map back into the computer, it will be 250hp+ (a couple guys on the RX-8 forum are close.)

    Th other thing is the torque... my torque peack is about the same as an S2000 (159lb-ft for me) but since it's a rotary it has a torque platue, not a curve. Damn thing is almost flat from 2000rpm to redline...

    And to get into a TRUE ricer-battle here... specific output. :)
    Me 1.3L = 237hp :finger:

    Touche...

    My curve is almost flat for TQ as well.. You have your mind set on this "ECU" thing, I hope it dosent fail you :sad: Cause if it see's 237whp, I want another test drive :D

    and you still didnt answer where your peak #'s are at :D

    Yeah, I admit I do have high hopes for the ECU re-tune, but it's looking promising. One guy in the RX-8 forum has gained 17hp at the wheels across the board (not just peak) playing around with the fuel maps.

    .. and I thought above when I said 237hp@8600rpm I was anwering where the peak numbers were... :confused:
    Which is good, becuase I wasn't thinking right and got the numbers wrong. :)
    238hp @ 8500rpm
    159ftlb@ 5500rpm

    Finee, stop comparing your teg to Dave's car. His RX-8 would make you his bitch :)

    You should focus on being able to pull on my stock SiR and THEN worry about racing an RX-8 :rofl:

    :rofl: you can compare cars, but your comparing apples to oranges. As for pulling on me, you really don't pull that hard on me for a GSR with mods :shrug: If I put cams/gears in my car I'd probably beat ya :shrug:

    Don't hate :p

    How Hard do you expect it to pull? Its not Ferrari but its at least a full second faster then you in the 1/4 if you wanna nit pick.. And if your referring to the night on the magazine where I started from 4000 in 4th and you stayed even? hahaha, Ill let you try again anytime you feel the need too, results havent been different once this year... :D so you "dont hate"

    With who driving? Running on slicks in PEI, weren't you putting down times that are roughly equivalent to what guys in the states are getting from an SiR w/intake? (low 15s/high 14s?)

    I never claimed to be a crazy driver and I had launch trouble in PEI, still ran a full second faster. Boots has an SIR w/ intake and couldnt break the 16's, so what are you getting at Dave? Even Joe had a few runs and I consider him a really good driver. 15.8 I believe.. I dont care what "guys in the states" are running . cause well, we arent in the states.

    All I asked ws what peak #'s were, not once or nowhere did Isay I was faster the an RX-8, just that the #'s I seen were close. So both of you can chill the fuck out

    Dude... I can chill the fuck out? You're the one getting all defensive and pissy.
    I'm not "getting at" anything. I was asking a question about the times you ran. You seem to want to read way more into that then is there.
    As for Boots' times, I wasn't there, so I wasn't aware of them.
