max speed per gear on the 02 RSX type s

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  max speed per gear on the 02 RSX type s

ive been searching the net for a couple days now. and i cant find an accurate answer. anyone knows?

posted by  Ki2AY

Does it really matter? Maz speed as in redlining it? Or max speed as in how fast should you go before shifting? Just because I CAN hit 50mph in first gear in my 88 Mustang doesn't mean I do, I run out of power before then.

I'll look around, there was an article a while ago in Road & Track...found it, and it has some stuff like gear ratios and mph/1000RPM but doesn't say top speed/gear. I'll look around though.

Found this ( program, where you put in the RPM and select the gear and it tells you what speed you'd be travelling at. I tried joining some forums but none of them let me start threads lol.

posted by  chris_knows

yes it matters, or i wouldnt have spent so much time looking for the answer.
i dont need to know when i should shift. i just wana know what is the max speed you can reach at a specific rpm (8,000) per gear.

posted by  Ki2AY

yeh ive actually seen a chart like that. i cant find it at all. i even checked acura forums.

posted by  Ki2AY

Then why don't you enlighten us all why it matters what mph you can reach by redlining your car?

posted by  Pythias

:screwy: Also since you own this car, why don't you go find out the answers for yourself?

posted by  Pythias

why not just go to a big open area and check

dude, im the one asking questions here. stop acting like a smart ass. its my business not yours.
this is a forum, your not suppose to care why a person is asking questions. if that was the case, why dont you go to every single thread and ask the thread starter why they are asking their question.

where did i say i own the car? another dumb ass

if i had the car, i would've

You just want the theoretical top speed per gear? Because, all the info I need in order to do that is the gear ratios, red line and the tires you've got on your car.

What's your car's redline, gear ratios, and what tires do you have on?

I'll do the math for ya once you get back to me with this info. I'll meet you halfway.

posted by  Godlaus

ok thanks. i have the gear ratios.

1st 3.267
2nd 2.130
3rd 1.517
4th 1.147
5th 0.921
6th 0.738
dont know if it matters but...
Reverse 3.583
Final 4.389

lets say the tires are stock. everything is. the redline stretches from 8000-9000.

you mind telling me how you will find out?
lets say this is a flat road.

posted by  Ki2AY

I still need the tire size.

but basicaly, I'm going to take the redline, and find the multiplier so that I find the wheel revolutions in each gear at 7000 engine revolutions. Then, I 2piR it to find the distance of one wheel revolution, factor that into miles, then find the Miles/Hr for each gear.

posted by  Godlaus

can you calculate it if the driver was to shift at 8000. thx

posted by  Ki2AY

Did you say anywhere that you DIDNT own the car. ****ing dumb ass piece of shit go take your medicine

posted by  newyorker

Did he say anywhere that he DID own the car? lol

posted by  chris_knows

omg, you just made yourself look more dumb with that post of yours. you make me piss my pants
its your fault for assuming in the first place idiot! :screwy: u got owned now walk home bitch

posted by  Ki2AY

I AM home dickweed. Come on, make a logical explanation. You didnt say that the car was yours, or not yours. most people that ocme here ask about their own cars. was i supposed to assume right away that this wasnt your car?

posted by  newyorker

That has got to be THE WORST reasoning ever.

For the record: You never said that you don't enjoy sex with goats.

posted by  giant016

No. For that matter, he didnt say anytihng. I guess he wants me to just assume the car isnt his when most people here ask about their own.:banghead:

posted by  newyorker

I was just showing that you shouldn't assume stuff. However, I thought I remembered him saying that he did have one lol...

posted by  chris_knows

you should be more concern about pissing on your nuts.

| | that small if you know what i mean.:laughing:

posted by  Ki2AY

true!!! its been traded in for a wrx, i just want to compare my previous car to mines now. ive been to clubrsx forum and
apperantly, they only have info for the 05 and beyond.
and from my understanding the 05 and 06 may have the same engine, but the gear ratios may be a little different. im not to sure.

posted by  Ki2AY

Wow you get dumber and dumber by the minute. I am officially done here

posted by  newyorker

I never made a thread about having sex with goats. In fact, ive never used the word goat on these boards until now

posted by  newyorker

Sorry sh*t head I thought maybe seeing as how a previous post fo yours SAID you owned the car that you owned it.

posted by  Pythias

It really doesn't matter, you should shift right after you make peak power.

posted by  PontiacFan27

I'm already doing math homework tonight, I'll have it done by tommorrow night.

Oh my fvcking god. I laughed so hard after this, that my room-mates are crowding around to find out what's so funny.

This one's going into my sig.

whos the shit head now? *OWNED*

posted by  Ki2AY

:laughing: :orglaugh:

So wait, you want to compare your current car to your old car, by comparing how fast each one goes in each gear? I'd think even a fvcking retard would realize a better comparison might be, Oh I don't know, how much power each produces, sh*t you could even go with which one is worth more, or holds its value better. You're a fvcking idiot. Like I as well as others have said, it doesn't matter, where you make your peak power is jack@$$

Maybe I wouldn't reply like a smart ass if you weren't such a fvcking idiot. I don't give a sh*t if your asking the questions, if I'm providing an answer, I better damn well know why such a stupid fvcking question was asked in the first place dickwad. I don't go to every thread and as the thread starter why they asked their question, because almost none of the other threads are this fvcking stupid. :thumbs:

posted by  Pythias

first of all, i know which car is faster, i know each vehicles value and i didnt ask how much power each vehicle produces. second there is no others and third i didnt ask if it matters to you or not i asked what the rsx top speed is in each gear. theres a difference.:screwy: it may not matter to you but keep in mind i am the thread starter and im asking the question because it matters to me.

your not providing any answer. your just frustrated because you've got owned numerous times (post#8 and post #29) thats why your post isnt making any sense. go cry to your mom

posted by  Ki2AY

he wasd owned 2 times...not numerous

posted by  newyorker

own is such a wonderfull word.

posted by  Ki2AY

No I'm not, because it is such a stupid question, as I stated before, or did you miss that? :screwy: And trust me, some idiot on the internet only amuses me. :laughing:

posted by  Pythias

oh believe me. your amusing us with your stupid comments.
if you cared so much about a stupid question (seeing how you keep coming in here posting trying to have it your way) i wonder how you would treat your kids in the future. do you go running around town yelling at people for something stupid? face reality.
if its stupid then why do you keep posting? like i said, your frustrated. dry your tears baby. dont get owned in the future.

rsxzone. i never heard of that forum. thats not me.
why the **** do you care so much.
oh and thx for the chart

[edit] btw, poster #3 says those arent accurate. so that cant be right.

posted by  Ki2AY

Just bored. And that chart should work for, your gear ratio numbers were only off by like .01 on the first and final, prolly just a typo.

posted by  Pythias

Meh I read it all and it looks like the other guy was just skeptical, the one that posted the chart sounds like he knew what he was doing.

those aren't right.

What's wrong... show me!

Here's a website to use and what you need to calculate.

And here are the gear ratios and final drive.

5-speed manual transmission Ratios (:1)

3rd....................... 1.212
4th....................... 0.921
5th....................... 0.738
Final Drive............ 4.388

6-speed manual transmission Ratios (:1)

1st....................... 3.266
2nd...................... 2.130
3rd....................... 1.517
4th....................... 1.147
5th....................... 0.921

Final Drive............ 4.388

5-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShiftTM and Grade Logic Control Ratios (:1)

1st........................ 2.684
2nd....................... 1.500
3rd........................ 0.984
4th........................ 0.733
5th........................ 0.571
Final Drive............. 4.562

Use the stock tires 205/55/16

From the sounds of it he calculated it.
