    Thumbs up Turbo'd Civic

    Sorry for the kill story and flame away if you feel the need (don't see why though).

    A buddy of mine has a turbo'd civic and everyone's been begging us to race each other so we finally lined them up tonight for 3 runs.

    I usually don't like running from a roll but I obliged him since that's what he wanted to do and from in second gear.

    The first run was from about 35 in second and the passenger in his car went nuts on the horn so I didn't know when to go. I left as soon as I heard his turbo spool. I got about 6 to 7 cars on him by 110 when we let off.

    He said I left early so the next run I let him get fully spooled and his back tire to my front bumper before I took off. I was shifting at about 6700 so I was at about 75 in second when I had to shift. He was already in high third by this time. Again we shut down at 110 but this time I only had about 3.5 cars on him since I gave him a nice jump.

    The third run we went on the third honk. He was brake boosting so it help even the plain a little (Not enough though). I ended up pulling him by about 3 cars on the third run but we had to shut off early cause of traffic ahead.


    I've honestly got to give him credit though for hanging in as well as he did. He built a good little civic. It's a lot faster than I would've thought.

    Lol i ugees the second race was fromn a dig, which you should have won by even more since you cant launch a high hp front wheel drive car, not to mention it would be in vtec or spooled for a bit.

    Lol doesnt matter if its a sohc or a dohc unless its built and noone builds a sohc, thats just silly. But the v-tec civics run low 16s and the non v-tec 17s. Which is why i dont understand when kids tell me they will pull me once there v-tec kicks in. These kids are in close to stock civics.

    around here there's plenty of SOHC Civics... runnin 300whp... and running high 12's... people do build them...and it seems to be better for..."torque"...

    goddamn I hate having to know all these things... damn Ricer Country...
