Default Acura TL vs RSX Question?

After a long battle with myself between whether to buy a 2003 TL Type S or a 2004 RSX I decided to go for the TL... it is one powerful car, mind you the RSX had some pretty sweet acceleration too...the RSX looks pretty sweet too but there was something about the TL...anyways my question is on a straitaway track which car would win? :P

I believe the RSX type S will beat the TL in a straightaway. I floored one during test drive and that car makes the noise of a formula 1 car, it was so loud in cabin. It went super fast because it's lighter than the TL.

well which one is lighter? which one has more power? if they both have the same engine and tranny then the lightest car will win ,simple as that,, speed = " power to weight ratio". the bigger power to weight ratio there is the faster the vehichle will be,, THE CAR WITH BETTER POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO WILL BE FASTER ON STRAIGHT TRACK OR ROAD TRACK DUH!!!

if your talking about a rsx type S then it would be the tl, if its just a regular rsx then the tl would win

RSX has a more sportier drive, while the TL is more of a family car. They both have almost the same specs. basically, its just your personal opinion. if comfort is in your intrest, go for the TL. if you want the sporty feeling, get the RSX

In a straight track, between a '03 Type S, and a '04 base RSX, the TL would win. I believe the quarter mile for the TL is low to mid 15s, while for the RSX it's in the high 15s low 16s.
