I have raced a modified Honda Accord once(1991).
He had headers,straight pipe,ignition,intake,some kind of superlight 8lb rims,manual transmission. He said that he estimated his car to be @ 165HP (4 cyd)
I had exhaust,intake.Of course i had the bigger engine, but I weighed way more than he did. I have 50lb crome rims, stereo, plus the car. I guess my HP = 165(3800 series I)
-anyway, I to0k him off the line by like 2 cars, then he slowly got even, then by the time I hit 90mph, he started to take me. He won, but for the most part we were even. I raced my friend on several other occasions, and his top end is unbelievable, I guess because he has a 5 Spd. But I can always take him in the beginning.
I just love to kill those RiCERs though. They always pull up to me because I have sidemarkers, and rev their engines, with that loud *** fart pipe, and try to impress me.Then I just wait until the light changes, and just destroy them! They try s0 hard, but never win, and just wonder what the hell just happened??? Grandma just kicked my ***!!!
