Raced a civic SI

01 or 02 SI....we arranged a nice race, since he was a friend of my buddies....Hes got in intake and partial exhaust, and a 100lb system in the car...first race he spun i just left him......2nd race....i felt bad cuz i know when to leave, since i have the "home field advantage".....so normally i Torque up to 2300 and then dump, spin a little, then take off great......but i wanted him to go first to give him the advantage a little...well i watched his tires spin so basically waited like 2 seconds......then froma dead stop took off....he was beating me till 3rd gear then i started catchin him kinda quickly, and then we stopped and my bumper was in his door.....so if i raced him how i normally do.....i woulda beat him.....and i have an auto may i add....and i had to put the stock intake back on as well.......so any1 in here next time they see a SI civic, dont be afraid to race it.....theyre garbage
well i just thought id share!!!

That was an ignorant thing to say. Honda's have some of the best build quality out there. Maybe that's why everyone owns one. I know this thing has been posted on many times before, but the guy was sharing his story. Leave him alone.

You cant honestly say every honda is crap, a large majority are just riced out POS's, but there are always those shining stars...for example, in my city, there are several riced out civics, im talking a hunter green color with a yellow body kit (unpainted...I think...could be spray paint ) But there is this one.....ooooh I like to take it for a spin, very subtle body kit, nothing crazy, stock tail lights, no fat ass wing, nice rims, and a big ass intercooler in the front. Other than the kit and rims, its stock. And a beauty. You cant call every honda a pos, cuz that guy would own you.

I didn't know you could dump at 2300 in an ATX? What are you doing, revving in neutral and slamming it to drive? I mean cuz you got a transbrake right? I really think an SI can pull better then a 16.42, esp one that is modded? Or am i mistaken?
