My good buddy Paul who is 62 years old and still counting, wants to run me in the 1/4 mile. He called me out for a test and tune at the local drag strip. Like I said he is 62 and is driving a Civic with a turbo. It has 183 hp at the wheels and it has alot of performance upgrades. My Focus is a 2005 ZX3 5-speed with stealth intake and steeda STS. My motor is all stock. I know his car is faster than mine but I have to answer the call. Maybe I can get him sleeping at the line. [sleep] What do you all think [driving]

Take 500 bucks and buy some N20. Then lay the smack down!
Or run him in the 1/8th, he may have more top end, but you still win the TQ battle down low. You may have a chance in the 1/8th.

That Civic is clean.. and if you some how beat him, I'll think he'll whoop your ass. For being 62, he's built.

that is a very well done civic. nice and clean. definitely a sleeper. i agree with shadowstrike, that if you somehow do win, he is going to beat your ass.

Correct me if I'm wrong but that is a non-vtec isnt' it?

Either way it's pretty clean! I personally would have kept the stock wheels on it and gone all sleeper! LOL!

Yea my buddy Paul is strong as an ox. He just set a state raw bench press record with a lift of 310 lbs. The old goat is a pretty cool dude. And yes he could kick my a$$, so I dont want to upset him to bad. [race] [driving] [chair]
