u need a man pedal.

but on some real shit, ive seen those DOHC or VTEC's n/a smack around some fast shit...they can go like 12's n/a cuz they dont weigh shit. i watched a speed6 w. probably about 300whp (was modded) get spanked by a EK, all motor, honda prolly weighed half of what the mazda did

SHivics may have a weight advantage (because they weigh about as much as a roller skate) but if you get hit by anything more than a bicyclist cruising down a side walk expect to wake up in the emergency room. lol.

damn idk maybe its just a bad race everyone has those but personally ive spanked si's , other civics, accords, tl's, sti's and etc and my ser is an automatic...you'll never get the other car off the line if their in stick your best bet is to gun it and from what ive experienced after 50mph is when the car really takes off...so you can catch up and dust them from there


edit: what mods do you have on the car?

I wouldn't judge a car by the litres it has anyway. That is like saying, 'I have a 2.5L QR25, I can woop this car that has a RB24, right.'

There is a reason civics are/were the most sort after cars. They don't need alot of power to run with most cars because they are light as hell.

Now if your trans stuck on third, then get that fixed. But going by a friends advice, 'he's stock', then getting your ass handed to you on a crystal platter, should simply be accepted.

Look at the areas you can improve on and then get them back. If we never lost a race, we would never upgrade our car or driving skills.


Good point, I am not making an excuse in no way shape or form, he was a good driver with a manual civic and he whooped my ass. I'm just saying I was surprised. And that last point u made is very true man "If we never lost a race, we would never upgrade our car or driving skills"

Happy Thanks giving man.

The window could be anything.
Fuse, but if the other windows work, then no.
Bad motor.
Bad switch.

If you have a volt meter, check the different areas to make sure that they are getting power.
I would check the switches and motor first as sometimes water gets in and causes havoc.

I don't think that he is.

What I am thinking is that he might have other issues with his car rather than being beat by a civic.

Don't get me wrong, if that is the issue then it could be a series of things.

Pedal sensor not opening the throttle all the way.
Transmission going.
ECU not allowing any redlines.

When I said don't scare him, I mean let him have Thanksgiving in a nice peace of mind.

We will scare him tomorrow....lol

my buddy has a gutted gsr swapped hatch.
weighs 2100 lbs with him in it.
I raced him from a 50 roll when my car was na (he told me his car wouldnt get traction from a dig) and he walked on me.
