A close call with a sleeper
this morning I was driving to college and at some lights I stopped next to a 96-98 white civic DX hatch with an exhaust. So I thought well is a weakly Civic DX so I think I have a chance. The light turned green but he did not take off at high speed but at third gear he stomp on the gas so did I, but I sttoped because there was another red light and cars were in front of us. But the weirdest thing happened, as he was revving his engine during second gear I heard the sound of a blow off valve and I was like man I'm dead. Well we could not race because cars were always in front of us, but I guess he got mad 'cause he followed me allk the way to college but we never got to race even though I know that I would lose, but it was a pretty close call was in it?

I think he was revving to let you know that you ****ed with the wrong civic. Did you have that "oh shit" feeling in your stomach?

I no longer fear boosted Civics. I went to the track (1/8 mile) and raced 2 of them when it was my first time there. My very first run ever was against a turbo '95 Civic DX and I ran a 12 something and he ran a 13 something. The next Civic was the same and I ran a 11.3 and he ran a 11.0. Needless to say, just bcuz they're boostin, doesn't mean they can drive. I know both those civics would've killed my with a good driver.

you ran a 12 something in what? an 11.3 in what?

I think he meant 12 something in the 1/8mi...which still sounds strange, but who knows.

I stated in the beginning of the post that it was an 1/8 mile track. Yeah, I know the times sucked but by the end of the night, I was in the high 10's and still improving.

12's in the 1/8th? Were you driving in reverse?

Never had that feeling before, maybe cause we all show no go cars here, so never get the chance 2 actually be challenged.
Too bad u didn't actually get 2 do it. U know just 2 see.
