FYI, if you have the car tuned like I have you can change the entire way it drives. This car is not about speed, it is about driving. When I run on the road courses I can beat almost all of the cars that are faster than the the S because anyone can put their foot down on the pedal and go fast in a straight line, but in the corners it is a whole different world. Maintaining momentum and being smooth is key.
With tuning, My low cam for vtec kicks in at 3700 rpm. I don't have to ring the motor out, cause I am always in the power band and never dip out of it.
