    another reason would be that the v-tec engine really lacks grunt in the lower rpm range, until the high range cam profile kicks in, v-tec doesnt really peform well, power to weight, aerodynamics and the gear ratio also have a lot to do with that, and yea, 200 bhp from a naturally aspirated inline 4 isnt bad at all

    that's why it's a mix of both sporty and economic cuz in normal driving u use a lower RPM so it will feel like a econome car, but when racing u use a higer rpm then u will feel the power of a sports car

    hmm its 200hp at the flywheel, not at the wheels, so i would definetly expect a huge decrease in measured hp at the wheels. The RSX type S is rated at 200hp and Import Tuner tested it and it only registered at around 165.

    This is true with every car. No one said it had 200 hp at the wheels.

    you're a dumbass if you think the type R is meant to be a daily driver, the interior is loud, and its not ergonomical, its for hardcore autocrossers, thats why it weighs a lot less than the rest of them, despite having a bigger engine
