I would find it difficult to believe that the M couldn't gain on an integra in a strait line...but the integra (given its lighter wieght) could exit the prev corner(to the strait) at a higher speed and this will make a hell of a difference even if he exits a bit faster, no car really gains speed quickly at higher speeds(well none that I will ever drive) and you will have a difficult time catching up.

I am suprised you were quicker in the corners. I would think with the light wieght of the integra it would be able to do alright. Of course it depends on the driver and all of that. But I thought that the limited slip on the R was supposed to be very good at reducing the power on understeer of the FWD vehicle.
