Jeff,

I understand the car has a new master cylinder. I'd be interested in hearing your impressions of the brake pedal travel, strength and overall feel in the '05. Comparisons to the '02-'04 RSX-S (I know it's been a long time since you drove one) or '04 S2K for comparison would be appreciated. Thanks.

The brake feel is pretty good - not ITR Brembo good, but pretty good. The big letdown is the braking power of the tires though. They just don't have enough grip to generate truly serious braking forces.

Would anyone know if the beefier master cylinder was also put into the base models?
