Oh the poor hondas...lol..

Well... we had our halloween shoot out last night at our local drag strip. pinks style 3 race 1/4 mile eliminations.. No times just run what you brought hand drop grudge match racing... So i modified my steeda motor mounts on my fofo trying to make them a bit stiffer as well as realigned my motor.. Some know that i have been fighting this battle of braking the lower mount and bracket each and every time i race.

So i thought i would just give you a quick run down of the night. Lots of hondas with type r swaps an altima spraying as well as a maxima that was spraying and a few hondas with just some bolt ones. We started out with a bit of difficulty getting people willing to run. After the found out that i was racing they were saying "Its not fair because your boosted..." I tried to tell them its pink style we can set up leads for you so its a more even race. The only way i could get people to compete was telling them for the first run i will give you what ever you want.

So after that we started with 10 cars. My first race was a 2002 altima that was spraying, not sure how much.. but he new i was boosted so he wanted 8 cars. so i was like ok.. First race i started 8 cars down on my 300whp setting... well i took him by about 4... So next race we decided he would get 12. well the guy that was hand dropping just said ill just hold you, well he held me way to long and i lost by about 3. So i told him 11 and the brake and he took it. So we ran and i beat him by about a fender.. Perfect race, i thought.. well he disputed it saying he didnt know where to stop and that he was told the 1/4mile ended at the truck at the end (which i did tell him) and then he said he was ahead of me at the truck so he let off... he said that the truck was before the 1/4 mile (which it wasnt it was dead on and always had been didnt move) so he lied to get a rematch.. So due to him pissing me off i decided the 400whp high setting and same race would be his punishment.. and well lets say i embarrassed him by about 6 or 7 car lengths and made sure he wasnt coming back.. (try to cheat me..GRRRR..).. hehe...
Next race was a civic hatch with type r motor spraying.. (yes they love nitrous here...lol...) well he wanted 10 for the first race.. So due to what i said i had to give it to him.. Well i managed to beat him on my low setting by about 1/2 a car.. then he was like was like i want 12 and the brake.. so i was hesitant but i was like ok.. and he beat me by about 1.5 cars.. so the last race we decided to do 11 and the brake.. Well off we went tires spinning and all.. he was going good.. and i was trying to run him down.. I went to use the high setting and noticed i was catching him way too fast i didnt want him to get too mad so i shut it off at the 1/8th mi.. Bad mistake on my part he beat me by .5 car and then i was out (oh well)..

All in all i was very happy ran very hard nothing broken.. and to make me feel a bit better i know i could have beat him and.. He was the one that won the shoot out.. But great night..

It's always fun to demolish imports in their own class.
