Actually, I had the flu for a couple of days. Went to the neighborhood New Year's Eve party last night. Nothing really exciting, threw the football around with some kids. Popped the cork at midnight. Didn't start until 7, wasn't feeling well, but the wifey and everyone else wanted me to go, so I did. Thanks for caring, though.
You're right, it's silly. But my real name is something like 1sixlex. It's Karl Osmus. Look me up on the Georgia Bar website. I do admit, though, Judge Walker continues to call me "Mr. Osmos." Maybe I should tell him to call me ricey? What's in a name?Then again you do call yourself "ricey" so it will be hard to have a serious conversation with you.
Hmm. I'm not really upset, and I didn't start this argument. I just know some stuff. I don't own any Honda stock. I don't sell cars for a living. I like cars, and I call it like I see it.No one brought up Lexus but you and it really is a contest you don't want to bring up as there is no contest. Not sure why you are bringing up Toyota engines here?
I and many others know its a good engine but its not really that great. It will likely be replaced by a V-6 next generation. So sorry you are upset about it.
Uhh, RDX sales are up about a billion percent? I never said anything about FWD. I don't care, I like the RDX but I don't plan on buying one. And if I did, I wouldn't spend any time justifying it to an obvious douche like you.You are also wrong about sales as Acura had to bring a FWD model to help sales, which wasn't originally planned.
You keep telling yourself that until you believe it.You are also wrong about Lotus as they picked the Toyota engine over the Honda unit and they are now going to use Lexus V-8s in the new models (unless that changes). Though not sure what that has to do with the RDX.
Showing you what? Honda made V-10s for years. IN FORMULA ONE CARS, YOU JACKASS. AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO HIRE YAMAHA TO DESIGN THEM.This is about the RDX, do you really want to lose a pissing contest about engines? You're stuck on V-6s, how about show me those V-8s, V-10s or hybrids so we can compare those.
Oh yeah, you can't.
Keep this on the RDX.
Honda has mismanaged their hybrids. But they didn't really ask me for my advice, so I don't feel married to their success or failure.
Granted, Honda hasn't had any F1 success since the Senna days, but Toyota pretty much sucked a big log on that one too, didn't they?
But, still. the J series may well be the best six cylinder engine since the Japanese stopped overbuilding their engines in the mid '90s.
Also, Acura + 20% sales this year.
Toyota, massive recalls, -% sales, and they still have to hire Yamaha to design their engines. Remember the Celica GT-S? Who designed that engine? YAMAHA. And it still sucked compared to the B18C. Like, it sucked so much, they started re-flashing ECUs to lower the rev limiter because it couldn't take the abuse.
Thanks for playing, I'm going to shred my x-mas tree.
