    What in the hell are they talking about redefining sports cars?


    Mitsu already did it years ago with the DSM AWD.
    Mitsu now has the Evo
    Subaru has the WRX, WRX STi, and Impreza s203/s204
    Porsche has awd cars
    Audi has the S4 thats now AWD and a V8
    BMW has X-drive


    Basically, honda and toyota are the last on the bandwagon. This isn't anything new, except to Honduh.

    The new RDX will be like a luxified CRV-sized "urban SUV".

    I believe it will be competitive but Honda is still yet to develop an engine in an econo car with torque.

    But it will no doubt outperform the NSX. I read about it on S2ki last week. I'm surprised that nobody else posted it here- I didn't because I thought people were already talking about it. Oh well. I still think it's sweet. Now I just have to know if I can bolt that 3L into my S2k.

    I think they are just now figuring out how awd works...... spent so damn long making awesome heads that the rest of the car went to shit.

    Thats cool.... but FAAAAR from new.

    the "redifining" isn't simply AWD, it's the "SH" which stands for "Super-Handling." it pushes power to the outside wheels while turning to acheive better control. the prelude had "SH" for 97-01. i'm not sure if any other manufacturers are doing the same thing, but honda is really publicizing their system
