Any excuse to put the top down and shoot some video! :unsure: :D

Here's several runs compiled into one video - from in the car up to 75MPH, from outside accelerating to about 80, a 95 MPH flyby at full throttle, then a quick decelleration with downshifting from 65 to stop. Wish you coulda seen the look on that kid's face when we passed him @ full throttle, 40MPH...

Full quality version available (14MB) for those interested.

2.9MB WMV Version (Crappy Video Quality)
9.1MB AVI Version (Decent Video Quality)

Very nice Ryan! I'm going to have to get one of those shift beeper thingies. Should work in any 4 cylinder, right? Was that your traction control kicking in (not sure if S2k has one) on the launch?

Nah, it was just a weak-ass launch. I think I side-stepped at 4000 RPM - for optimal take-off, you're supposed to launch @ 7000RPM. I just don't have the balls to do that; with the charger it'll snap the axles, and they're sure not covered under warranty.

I think the beeper will work on any carthat has an electric tach signal - he's got info on his site about it. We're going to add one to the RSX; works like a champ and not rice-looking as some of the shift lights I've seen.

....covered under warranty.

You mean, you still have a warranty with about 10k under the hood? Damn, some companys you put an air intake on your car and that voids the warranty

I bought the supercharger, header, flywheel and clutch directly from the dealership; they installed it there within days fo the car's arrival. Was the easiest way to ensure that I'd have no warranty headaches.

Gotcha. It just looked like you were sitting there chuffing the tires at constant RPM for a second.

I'll contact the guy with the shift beeper- let me know how it works out in the RSX!

$60 or so - available here : http://www.baustnet.com/honda/mods/shift/r...redline_buy.htm

Pretty sweet little mod, easier to use than a shift light (IMHO) and not near as noticable.

Ryan

cool find
RX7's come with this stock ... i was looking for something like this for pretty much the same reason (dont like shift lights) :)

Yeah I don't really care for the shift light either- who knows where I'll be looking when I need to shift anyway... it's not like I race in a straight line! :lol:
