I do sometimnes forget how lucky I am with the test car thing...When the new mustang came out we went and picked up Andy with his turbo B18 civic hatch and were doing 40 MPH rolls with him...He was killing the mustang BTW, not from a dig, but from a roll he got us everytime.
ummmm a HUGE PART of that car is the motor!LOL.....geez
What was the outcome from a standing start?

Damn thats wrong....but sadly right.


So did u get it Ken...or u gonna make us all wait to find out?[/QUOTE]


^^^^ From a dig we would get about 30-40 feet on him and it would stay there the whole time, till whatever speed we stopped at. The main issue with the civic was traction under 30-40 MPH it would just blow the tires off under boost.

^^^ Its not like you are going to hurt it. It could take that all day long. It amazes me how terrified some people are of the rev-limiter on a car or bike. When I roadraced bikes we hit the "shift indicator" every lap...over and over. I "ve done some demolition derbies with cars, you can sit a 200,000 mile turd 3.1 Chevy corsica on the rev limiter for 5 minutes straight and she still won't let go...trust me. LOL

Yeah, the Honda dealership was right down the road from the Ford one and when we test drove a Si Aaron asked (just to be safe. LOL) if we could hit VTEC. He said sure I don't care. He was a cool guy too.

So right there Honda > Ford We didn't like that big ol' gas guzzlin' Mustang anyway.

So Ken........

Gotta say, went and picked up my zx3 from the body shop today from the full makeover. Looks pretty good lots of light you can see silver, some light you see deap candy apple red, and in the shade back to black. Not sure what they call it but its pretty sweet, now if i could get rid of the 05 that would be great. Ill get some pics of it up when i get to the high speed access.
