sorry i meant rev hang issue "reflash", they made the rev hang less. (you can get this at a honda dealer i believe for free, as an update)

rev hang video (you can see it in this video, the needle just hangs after you let off)

its both the needle and the actual rpm's, a few members here mentioned it was intended the (06 rev hang) for easier/smoother shifting, because while you shift the cars rpms stay (they hang for a little bit) while you depress the clutch shift and release the clutch, so by the time your done shifting you dont feel a "jolt" of not rev matching. im sure you've felt it by now if your new to stick shifts, when you dont match your rpms to the correct gears (you can easily see this when you down shift from say 5th gear to 3rd that "jolt" as a clearer example)

i hope that wasnt too confusing heh, im not the best explainer

happy :vtec: 'n

No VSA for the Canadian models at all. The floor mats also have "Si" on them. Mechanically they are the same. My 06 and my 07 are virtually twins. I can also add that it feels like the 07 drives smoother then my 06. The shifter and throttle operate better IMO.
