I, of course, walked away from him off line. I heard him shift into second, and I was still crawling away. Got one car length. Now here'* the thing:

My car attempted to shift into second, and slipped horribly doing so. When it finally engaged second, I felt it launch again, hard (ouch for my tranny. This is why I don't race much.), but now he was crawling back up to me. He was halfway up my side, when we hit 85 in a 40, and I hit the brakes pretty hard. He should have done the same, because as he blew past me, he got pulled over right in front of me... ...I feel bad for him...

His car looked exactly like this one:

2002-03 Civic 3dr i-VTEC:

A high-output, DOHC, 2.0-liter engine with "intelligent" i-VTEC system
160-horsepower at 6500 rpm and 132 lbs-ft of torque at 5000 rpm
Close-ratio, 5-speed manual transmission
Rally-style shifter mounted on center instrument panel

I bet an LG3 can give it a good run for it'* money. Has more hp and torque. Numbers don't lie, I guess...

I definitely don't think the new Si is as good as the older coupe... and they're ugly
