Team XXX’s RSX is tuned and back on a race track. Here is the report as filed by the team.
It’s been a long winter and it feels great to get back to racing! We got the RSX tuned, made 600whp @ 21psi and took it out for some testing two weeks prior to this event. Brand new turbo setup and a re-freshed engine along with a few more goodies.
This 2012 Honda Day event had record high attendance for the Atco racetrack and a beautiful 80-85 degrees sunny day! We raced in the 10.50 Index class and ended up losing in the 2nd round. The RSX improved every run, but we are still trying to figure out traction issues we are having which should definitely get the car much closer the 10.50 number we need to run. Car ran 10.86, 10.84 and 10.82 at around 138mph.
The car got tons of exposure and turned lots of heads as it’s really the only RSX out there running some good times. Thank you for your help this year and in the past with parts for the RSX!
After four years in the making, the FXMD’s 1991 time attack Honda NSX can now proudly be called USA’s top Time Attack car. After coming out on top at the annual Super Lap Battle held at the Buttonwillow Raceway, with it’s staggering lap time of 1:40:981, Tyler McQuarrie and the FXMD team broke the old record for RWD cars and edged in front of its long time rival – another Turbosmart-sponsored team – Sierra Sierra Enterprises.
As they say – “there’s no keeping a good racer down” – Jason Park is back with the fully rebuilt Ghostrider v2.0. After an unfortunate crash last year, Jason, Chris Cook and the FCS team set out to rebuild the car and it’s hard not to admire the result.
The car is based on a 2000 Acura Integra with an inline 4 honda vtec B-series motor capable of producing in excess of 1000hp. The forced induction consists of a Bullseye custom S372r turbocharger, two Turbosmart Hyper-Gates, Turbosmart Race Port BOV, FPR and a Turbosmart boost solenoid. This setup is good enough to propel the car to low 9 quarters with close to 170mph top speed.
