RS has more advantages; AWD, better brakes, and a lot more torque.

This has been done to DEATH.

ok.. here it is in general terms.

RS off the line till about 60-70 when the top end of the civic and gearing come into play and the civic will crawl towards the RS and eventually over take it.

so.. it all depends on how far/long you want to race.

the RS has the advantage in the start signifigantly..

but the Si will gain towards the top.

ok..

its a drivers race. with equal drivers the Si should be completely past the RS by ~95mph and there after continue to pull ahead rather easily. from a roll the Si wins.
now fishguy pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease close this thread. its just gonna turn into what it did last time.

Uggh! Not this again. Would someone close this (as the last one was!) Or at least move it to the general forum, it really doesn't belong in NA Powertrain.

I spent all my energy in the last thread, I just can't do it again. Please make it stop. Please lock this before the ClubSi trolls see it and I am forced to do battle yet a second time.

I am not a troll, and we didn't do battle, except maybe in your head!

I agree. I think if the moderators wanted it closed, then everyone should respect that and leave the topic dead.
