If you look at my time slip the other car was a 2007 silver Si sedan. he ran a 16.3 @ 88 MPH. the day i did this there was a srt-4 owner that was at the track like every week and said he'd never seen an Si hit the 14's. Which was what i was going for, i had bet 5 friends that i would do it. (i made a lot of money that day). and the SRT-4 owner couldn't believe it.

so that being said if you race me you'll lose, if you race that other guy you'll kill him. My time would put me at #6 on this websites v6 fast list. I was scope out the driver, ask him what rpm's he launches at and how much traction he has in 1st gear. and if he power shifts. these answers i could tell you in 2 seconds if he's gonna run a good time. the proper launch is 3000 RPM's and you have ZERO traction all the way through 1st gear. this is so that when you hit 2nd gear you shift and your rpms stay above the magic 6k rmps iVTEC point. Also i was NEVER able to run a 14 without power shifting. so if he doesn't know what this is than he's done.


wow, wtf

Camaro all day. Ran one yesterday. Started in 3rd gear at 50 mph and put about 6 cars on him. Did another run from the same speed in 2nd gear and put about 10 cars on him.

V6's are just SO slow. It's pathetic, really.

Agreed, but I bought it 6 years go, before the Camaro was out, and it was the fastest new car i could afford at the time. I'm going to get a Camaro SS next spring

Funny yes? Can you tell when vtec kicks in on my car? Yes, it's a second torque peak. You feel and hear it. this is only true on the SI's, s2000's, and some accords maybe. a regular civic has vtec but it's not for performance its for fuel economy.
