I think the single cam v-tech was the 1.6l My old '92 civic had the 1.6l single cam v-tech which was a 125hp stock motor

Yes my car is an automatic. I've never ran a 1/4 or even 1/8th but if i had to guess id go with a 16.3 and 10.7? Both arent near what SVT_Focused posted his friend did.

Idk it may be a good run tho cause we did a pull on a closed course from a 40 roll and I rolled 3rd and still pulled a lot in my SVT. So it should be a good run for you guys I'd go from a roll though cause the civics are geared more for the 1/4. The roll would give you a little advantage[thumb]

What kind of civic are we talking about? CRX, HAtch, sedan. The weight will determine the winner I think. Youll beat a sedan, but I dont know about the other two.

It's a hatch an EG body style hatch and I'm thinking SI based on the description on motor and car but if it does win it won't kill the focus.

Insane you should video the run for us to see.

should have read the tittle again. me = not bright.
I think you will win. I just remembered my buddys auto cavalier (OHV engine) out ran a SI CRX with similar mods. I know the focus is faster than the cavy, so I imagine its faster than the hatch.
Good Luck either way!

Lol its cool. Idk, I think it will be a iffy race. On most of his 1/8th mile vids he runs about a 12 sec 1/8th which is slowwww, But 1/8th mile races arent for hondas. I guess a 20 roll would be good for me.

Haha nah. I dont talk crap because its always soooooo sweet when you beat a big mouth. I'll probably beat him in my 3rd gear. Thats where I always start to pull on cars for some reason.

Haha. I'm sure. As of right now it sounds like he will only race if he sprays I dont want him to because then it wouldnt be a race. He has a 75 shot..
