Unhappy someone help my hurt ego

So I had just got out of work and headed home when a CRX pulled up next to me at a light and revved. I was thinking ohmygodnohedidnt, hes gonna get killt. sow I ride next to him to the next light where I stop on the line ae pulls to about a car length ahead and I'm like, ok I'll let him have a head start, hell I'll even start from idle (he was stedaly revved.) Light turns green and we go to the next light, alittle over 1/4 mile and he beat me by half a front end. I was like OUCH, MY EGO please tell me I have not been shamed!

well, I wouldn't say you've been shamed exactly, but I wouldn't give them a headstart, or any benefits, their car is pretty light so they can move pretty quick. If you see him again, leave no doubt. I'm sure he's told all his friends how he slayed a ***** Focus.

On a brighter note, today was a good day for me at the stop lights on the way to work. Civic EX slayed, and a VW Jetta slayed (no not a TDI, I'm thinking just a basic 1.8 N/A). They may not have been super rockets or mod monsters, but I feel better about my little car.

aw, don't feel bad. i'm sure you're still more well-endowed than he is! (lol)

seriously, sounds like you just got over-confident. no head starts, no starts from idle. the focus is fast, but not THAT fast, and like RPIJG said, the CRX is light. plus you never know what he has under the hood,. there's so much aftermarket out there for those cars.

Mike

The CRX is a bad-a car, easily souped and a great light weight race car. So, don't feel shamed, we all get beat every once in a while, especially when racing outside of your class. Kick some other booty!

I had a CRX that would slay 90% of the cars on this website, so don't be so down.

I want a moped on the bottle!! that would be awsome...maybe one of those little cheap scooters the arabs sell on the street corners with 'weed eater' motors on them with some juice! Like a 10-15 shot!...LOL...better hold on to that thing!!! I bet it would pop a wheelie if the engine didn't blow up! Definitely have to lean WAY forward.

That's what you get for being over confident! I don't race too much, but the only things I've lost to so far are a newer trans-am, a 90's mustang cobra, and a debadged Camaro with a very loud engine and duel pipes (may have been z28...don't know for sure).

Don't be so cocky next time (well, that's what it sounded like to me.)
There will plenty more Civics where that came from.
