06-22-2004, 10:51 PM
I saw this topic in another location but all i saw were people with zx3's posting and im like "wtf i wanna know how people w/ my car do things"
Be prepared to explain your race, your mods and the other cars mods if you know them.
lets get started:
1-i've only had my car for a month so i raced my friends Protege5
he has an intake, a strut bar, and and exhaust...im stock...so he blew me but to my defence, this is my first stick car and i didnt know we were racing untill he had sped up a bit[rolleyes]
so how bout you?

I raced my friends brother 1998 BMW 328is and got my spanked but i knew that be4 the race i just wanted to see what would happened. I raced a couple civics with ehaust and i beat them easily and my '05 ST is stock
06-22-2004, 11:06 PM

06-22-2004, 11:24 PM
I cant beat anything cept a j body
06-22-2004, 11:29 PM
well, my best race was with a CRX.....I got spanked but I won the war.....
the moron revs next to me, so I rev back and we take off... I did not even bother cause I knew he was going to leave me behind like an ugly prom date. HE sure as hell was not stock. I think he had the frienkinstien in it. Anywho.... he blew me away and decided to wait for me and do it again. Like dude, get over yourself. So fine, I endulged him again. Then he went for a third...... now I am pissed. So I make my turn to head home.... there is alot of construction around and I do not want to entertain this tonka toy anymore. Only he has other plans. He is reving his a$$ off behind me and then pulls out of his lane and floors it. I am thinking... O dear god not again... then my brain clicks...his is about to kill himself. I cut out of the lane fast and blow my horn ( yeah like he is gonna hear my horn over both our exhausts, thats a laugh).
Then I start flashing my highs... and my highs are bright.. HIDs... I can see the reflection off of all the barracades... he still doesn't.... untill its too late. He slams on his brakes... I am thinking "crap, I hope he cuts right....".. I think he heard me and cuts left... right over the median. I can hear stuff getting ripped off the bottom of his car and I mean alot of stuff. As I coast past him I can still hear bits and large chunks of metal scraping the ground even though his car is dead stopped.... and I mean DEAD stopped.
I did circle around to make sure he was ok.. he had his hood propped up, so I just started cracking up and kept going. He flashed his flashlight at me.....thinking I was going to stop.. like hell, he got what he had coming...
I beat an SRT4 off the line, I kept beating him too, the dude must not understand his little extra does not kick in till like 35 mph. and the lights were too close together for him to keep up. Untill I ran out of street lights.. then he got to use his turbo.
Other than that. I do not race much. I like to show off when I have it sitting still. But i know it cannot do much on the road...yet.

I dont race.. really at all.. but I did awhile back, because my friend wanted to.. hes got an 88 crx, hiflow cat, exhaust, and a filter(hes a 5spd).. I had an intake and aftercat exhaust(Im auto.).. so we go to an old unused road.. we were being flagged, I got a quick lead and kept pulling so I figured he probably wouldnt catch me, but he did and barely won by maybe a 1/4 of a car.. I also raced a guy in a 4 door civic (a 97?).. he had exhaust and also a 5spd.. I beat him.. I dont think he could drive very well..
06-26-2004, 12:37 PM
I have a lightly modded focus, exhaust, intake, swab, and its 5 spd...
So i raced my friends stock civic (auto) its the dx 4dr so i smoked him he was in auto and did a brake start and it didnt matter b/c he nvr caught up. ..
I raced my friends g35 coupe he stalled so i beat him lol but hten at the next light he smoked me so bad i decided to save my gas...Then we went to taco bell.
I raced an echo and beat it i assume it was stock...
I raced my friends gt (not gts) celica its 140 hp and he has 2 12s in the trunk so its hvy and he has underglow but swears his car is so fast... I can drive better than him and my starts own him b/c he thinks that his 5spd is hard to drive (bs). So off the line i take him then about half way throuhg second gear (45 mph) he is at my rear bumper in the left lane but the road curves and he brakes (???) i dunno y but he did so i took him on the turn and we stopped at the lgiht and i was like what biatch...
Other than that nothing else lately i have been driving to save gas b/c it went up to 2.19

Last night on the way home from work I raced an 03/04 eclipse GT. He had a passenger, and I had just me and about 3 gallons of gas left in the tank. We went from a roll, he was a about 2 ft ahead of my car before we started, so it wasn't exactly headsup, but I was right on him like stink on shiat until 70MPH in 3rd gear, then he started pulling away, @ 85MPH he had a full car length on me. I knew I was gonna lose, but I didn't think it was gonna be that close for as long as it was. (Though I did nail all my shifts on the dot heheheheheheheeheh). We both pulled into the same gas station to fill up, I was curious if he was just f'n around with me, so I asked if he was try'n and he was like "yeah I was gett'n on it good there", and apparently was on his way to somewhere else for more racing. I figure if he didn't have the extra person he woulda really handed me my ass though hehehe.
2003 SPI, Bomz Short Ram, lowered 1.5", 17" light ass Enkei RS6 rims and Toyo's.
Soonish mods: Electronic SWAB, New gauge cluster w/tach, Exhaust, Light Flywheel and Heavier clutch. Maybe LSD if they fit our tranny, or if I can find out how to get a Zx3 MTX75 with the better final drive bolted up =D

you wouldnt happen to have any pics of ur car, would you?
06-26-2004, 03:55 PM
I don't race much but I raced a civic hatchback (90?) on my way home one night. We both pull up to the light, he revs his engine and I can hear his turbo, so I'm like, 'I'll beat him off the line and turn before his turbo kicks in', Well we both go and I take him off the line and I can see him catching up. All of a sudden, I hear his car start coughing and smoking bad. He then comes to a dead stop in the middle of the road. I laughed so hard!
06-26-2004, 03:56 PM
Here it is, Its a big image, sorry in advance for Dialuppers.
06-26-2004, 03:57 PM
oh which reminds me...i have to update my shit!
last night i was on my way to my friends house and was on the turnpike and i see a white car with white window washer lights on it and i see hes going pretty quick and pulling up next to me so i switch to 3rd gear so i can quicken my speed as fast as him...so we were right next to e/o and i switch to 4th so he'll notice me and then we're racing and i switch to 5th and i beat him at 85 and then he slows down and i flash my hazards!!!!![8D]
oh it was a nissan sentra btw
06-26-2004, 04:01 PM
hey ghostils, is your car lowered at all? and if so, how much?
06-26-2004, 04:06 PM
Yeah its lowered 1.5 in the back 1.4" in the front.
I wouldn't recommend anything lower than that if you drive around a lot with friends, I found that when I have four people total int he car the wheels can rub a bit.
06-26-2004, 04:12 PM
thats true, but i think i'll do 2'' cuz i dont usually have 4 people in the car...im a [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] when it comes to giving rides
06-26-2004, 04:23 PM
I beat Civic 2004 Stock with my ZX3 stock. Its a city driving, start from red light and take off.
06-26-2004, 04:31 PM
That'll look sick with 17's and a 2" drop man =) (hehe, mind the steep drive through exits hehe) What rims are you gonna get?
06-27-2004, 12:41 AM
I JUST BEAT MY FRIEND'S '02 LANCER
he was auto and stock and i was manual and stock
06-27-2004, 02:17 PM
Yea if u have a good launch off the light/line u will most likely win most of the time and it also depends on the driver
06-27-2004, 11:54 PM
since my car is stock upon stock its kinda hard to launch w/o a tachometer
06-28-2004, 12:13 AM
this thread has ghey written all over it.
06-28-2004, 06:04 PM
I raced my friend in his 94 civic SOHC V-tech right when he bought it, it has a muffler and cai he absolutly destroyed my ass, there was no race he left me sitting there with a dazed look as I watched him blow me off the road. My mods are a AEM SRI and a muffler. Later on we found out his car can not only blow me away but also MOST V-6's and keep up with a V-8 now to me at first the v6 and v8 part was hard to belive, but if I'm Lieing I'm Dieing needless to say I dont race him any more I mainly provoke mustangs and other cars to race him and laugh when they pull up to us down the road.[:D]
06-28-2004, 06:31 PM
i think you forgot the part that hes had an engine swap or has a turbo/ supercharger on that civic also...

Took the words right out of my mouth.
I have driven both an auto and a 5spd d16y8 civic. No...it cannot hang with a v8...maybe a v6....maybe.
The guy in the V8 must not have known he was racing. [rolleyes]
06-29-2004, 07:40 AM
All I know is I know both the cars the V8 was my friends 25th anniversary camero and he knew he was racing, dont think I belived it right away either but I saw it for my self.
06-29-2004, 09:59 PM
*puts head down and sighs*
camaro had a lot of smoke coming from behind it didnt it? to bad the honda cant do that... now we know why the honda "won", camaro was burning his tires off the car.......
06-29-2004, 10:14 PM
Look, I know its hard to belive that a honda can do such a thing but I saw for myself, even if I was completly car stupid I would still know a ROYAL ASS WHIPPING when I saw it, and I saw him beat a V-6 from the passenger side of the honda itself. And when a guy with a V-8 admits not beating a civic, well why would someone lie about that esspecially when there where plenty of whitnesses to see. Anyway on a lighter note I raced my girlfriends 03 eclipse GS, it was not much of a challange its realy slow on take off.
06-30-2004, 02:28 PM
There are some hondas that can take a V8.... if you look at em, they might have one of 2 things. "V8 eater"... or " Sergeon General's Warning, It is now legal to smoke V8s".
I have seen it happen before.... my brother's CRX can take a V8 from the line .. but the V8 with catch back up .. he has a ( I think ) frenkienstien B16.. all motor... 5 speed mtx. He has surprised many ppl with that little tonka toy... you practically have to squat to sit in it... and he is taller that I.
07-01-2004, 11:32 AM
what you really have to remember is that a civic is a honda, and thats just retarded[rolleyes]
07-07-2004, 05:10 PM
Retarded or not there are not many people around here who can come close to touching him, and I dont know about your mods golden, but I dont usually call something that can skip the 4cyl appitiser, fully digest a V6 main coarse and want seconds retarded
