Disappointed...

Well, I just raced a civic 1.6 sohc w/ vtec. I beat it but only by a car. He was 1/2 a car ahead at a 15 roll, we kicked and he actually pulled me through 1st.. Once we got to second, I got even, and by third i was about a carlength ahead. I thought I'd crush him. Didn't realize it was going to be so close.. Gives me more and more reason to up the mods I guess *sigh*

just get more mods, Some civics can be damn fast, even though the "ricer boy comments follow them". At least you came out on top ;)

like i said, i hate civics, because they can b fast and i hate loosing to them. Honda knows how to build a motor, esp the Japanese. Look at all the cars the Japanese built, and the americans built, everyone talks about supras, skylines, rx-7s, 3000Gt's. all Japanese, i mean yes we ahve mustang, firebird, camarro and stuff but all those cars are good in straight races, not auto x and stuff. my next cars is going to be a honda or mitsubishi. That is after the focus goes, and i get tired of my mustang :)

supras, skylines, rx7's and vr4's kill in autox. Supras are also pretty damn good in a drag too. but hondas arent all that great for autox unless its an s2k.

look at your mods...the pacesetter shows rarely ever a gain, the short ram is dead in the heat, and an udp...u were basically stock racing him...at the track a car length means a lot

Hondas aren't that great at autocross???????????????????
Better go back and take a look at some of the old Si and CRX stats!!!

type r,gsr,hatches,crx all good at autox,as for mitsu good engines with a bad tranny is their downfall,the prob with american v8 cars is the lack of handling if they made a fast car that handles and doesnt cost a fortune theyll compete weigh a supra with a vette new their prices were similar but potential and handling and gas milage the supra rocked it.

i say fk it ..you beat him..good kill....were missing the point here...a win is a win...maybe their was other factors like the drivers..maybe he shifted on point..who knows all i know is a honda kill is good if by an inch or a mile..every honda killed gives our foci a little more respect..hell i got my ass handed to me by an nsx around the corner from here but when i pulled on side the guy at 120 and gave him a thumbs up..he gave me one back cause he knew we were both after the same thing.....its all fun with this shyt...dont take it too serious
