Default A start

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 ***!!!

That'* the beauty of the Bonnie. My best strategy is to not even LOOK at 'em (with my dark windows, it'* easy), and not rev. Gives me the jump off the line, and scares the livin' **** out of 'em when they realize their stickers and wings didn't do the trick. I always let 'em get close enough to see the SSEi on the car, but because it doesn't say Bonneville anywhere, and Pontiac is very muted on the back fender, they NEVER know what just kicked their ***!

Keep it up Tim! It'* good for the breed!

Bonneville_blue is on a distinguished road

There ya go. Bonneville is the biggest sleeper car in my opinion. Cops dont look for racers in Bonny'*. They look for them in Ricers and such. Plus we still beat the hell outa ricers. A Ricer with all the stickers and wing and new racy paint job VTEC rolled up to me a few weeks ago. Well anyway He reved, I did nothing I was gonna rev i put it in nuetral but then the light turned green . I was fumbleing around with the transmission i got it in Drive and I started 2 seconds after him. He was 2 car lengths ahead (I started late) I slowly crept up to him and I got even and pulled a little ahead. Now Imagine if I would of started when he did eh? Well anyway we came to the next light. He never looked at me. He peeled off and turned into McDonalds. I guess Losers gotta eat too ya know! Another Time. I raced this Civic. This chick thought she was hot **** and I made sure she memorized my tail lights. I went to my friends house afterwards and told him:
"Lets not order a pizza, I just ate Fried Rice a little bit ago!" heheheh get it?
