Default first "official" kill

the situation : bunch of car guys hangin out, my buddy tim all sudden goes "lets race!"

the Cast:
me ~ 1995 bonneville (see below for mods)
tim ~ 2000 Alero (stock)
Mike ~ 89 Honda CRX (stock)

The facts:
we all line up 4 lane road deserted after dark, the starters hands drop....... the bonne squaks em, perfect launch, mike burns them thru 1st/2nd tim chirps em mike is riht on my *** thru 2nd/3rd tim is falling steady... as the bonnies torque kicks in harder i pull on them.... 5 car lengths on the crx 6 on the alero (which was beatin by the crx)

these were true quarter miles, we use a sewer drain for staging and past a sign is exactly 1/4 i was happy to say the least and no one underestimates the power of the bonne anymore

lol...but you do know what Honda stands for right? They are pigs off the line, but lots of power in the upper band

Thats why when racing one, you gotta kill em off the line.

Why get a 1.6? He could easily have dropped in a JDM 1.8 from the Japanese Type R, probably would have cost the same too. He would easily have been in the low 14 high 13 range just with the swap.
