rsx type s has 200 bhp if im correct, not sure what the 230's are pushin. I dunno the Rsx is pretty light, looks like itll come down to the Drivers. Cuz i think the 230 has what like 210 bhp?

Actually, cars with less than 280hp is true but cars with over 280 is a false statement. Japanese automakers has this promise that they will not make cars over 280. So Skylines, WRX STi's, Evo's, NSX, etc. claim 280 but in fact, all dyno over 300hp. FYI.

I think the RSX will win due to the weight.

It's in the torque

Interesting, I didn't know the SLK was that light, I thought it was a 3100 lb car. Base on those numbers, I say the SLK now.
