I guess we will have to see, I hope I can get cams by then.

Weapon R Intake
Exhaust 2.5 diameter, with OBX
Exedy OE fly/clt conversion kit
Tom or Randy's tune,
And maybe cams.

I think so, he's not that experienced in driving, I've got 3-4 years on em.

Don't worry about cams, not enough difference to justify them. As for how sticky the track is, it really depends on which track you go to. VHT is very sticky itself but it also varies on how well it's laid down and kept up. I've gone to two different tracks in the same weekend and at one, the slicks would grab and leave and the other I would light the slicks up through the 60ft and be a half second slower or more. If you've been to Maryland International Raceway (MIR) or South Georgia Motorsports Park (SGMP), you know what excellent track prep is like.

Since you're on street tires, go around the water box if you can. Getting the street tires wet and trying to do a burnout to heat them up is not only pointless (if you do get them warm) but ineffective since it still traps water in the treads anyway. Unless you're running slicks or drag radials, just go around the water box.

Also "2 door Honda" tells me nothing. There's a big difference between a Prelude, an Accord, and a CRX, all are 2 door Hondas. Given it's a B18 means it's probably not a Prelude or Accord (someone would be really stupid to underpower them with that motor) so it's either an Integra, Civic, or CRX. Honestly, he's probably got you if he can drive half decent. He's gonna pull you on top end. All of the Honda's I've lost to it has been top end. I'll get them off the launch and through the 1/8th mile but then they drive around me between the 1000ft mark and the 1/4. Below is a race I won against a built and turbo Civic a couple years ago.

Spot: Me --- Honda
60ft: 2.09 --- 2.54
1/8: 8.64 @ 85mph --- 9.14 @ 89mph
1/4: 13.51 @ 105mph ---- 13.52 @ 114mph

I got a big jump out on him but he started catching up after the 1/8th mile and I saw him coming really fast in my rearview and next to me when I crossed the finishline. I beat him just 2/100ths of a second. They're rpm freaks that love high rpm and top end power. My advice is to launch the best you can and get out in front and try to hold it.

Thanks for the info Smith, I would have drove right through the water box, now I will stay away from it, and I think that is a decent advantage.

because I will not tell my rival that, and I bet you he drives into it and burns out on his stocks.

I will defiantly have someone tape it, and I'm going to see him today, so I will secretly take pic's of his car. Don't want him knowing I'm doing too much research on his car.

Okay, cause I think I still might surprise people, cause I've beat celica's, and many other Honda civic's before.

I'll get those pics, time to be like Brain from 2 fast 2 furious, and check everyone's shit out. lol

Until I do see him, I found a random pic on the internet of the body style.

Only difference is, his is a little more beat up, and green, with a black hood.

I dont' think the CRX ever came with a 1.8... I'm not sure, but I think they were 1.6's across the board.

He defiantly said there was a 1.8L in there, and that he was going to get a 1.6L head to increase compression.

He said he not only had to get the 1.6L head, but he also had to grab the intake manifold, and exhaust manifold, to match the 1.6L head.

mac that is an ef civic.

he swapped a b18c1 into it. i am guessing. Not a lot of people put the c5 in it.

he should actually easily beat you.. he prob ways somewhere around 2500 lbs.. good luck.
