Integra GSR Fun Time

My buddy has a 95 Acura Integra GSR with the Type R head on it. Well we were on our way down to Nopi (which we never mad it to) and he decides he wanted to have some fun, so he drops a gear and floors it trying to get away from me, so my being in 6th drop to fourth and have at it. I was right on his tail, he was pushing it as was I and we werew pretty much even. We got off on an exit becuase we saw a cop and then we came upon a stoplight. SO I take it up to 3,000-3,500 RPM's and so does he (about) We were even in first, I pulled a way a little in second (which by the way, my gears lasted a lot longer than his)
In third he was about 3 ft ahead of me, I got my car to about 7200 and slammed into third, by this time we were at about 85 and then he had me by a car length in 4th. I was mad, but GSR's are supposed to be faster than us. be he still couldn't get away.

Sounds like you had fun and that is a very interesting story.

Hmmmmmm should this not be in a different forum? Maybe Racing, Rally and Autocross.

Just a suggestion, no pun intended.

Yeah the GSRs are mad fast. I have a H22 in my civic hatch and it's only a few HP less then a GSR and I kill my bros svt everytime. Don't feel bad about...they're hirevers that pull all the way through.

Did you have your subs in the car when you raced? They make a huge difference.

h22's are rated at 200 hp and b18c1's are rated at 170. What are you talking about?
