if you have read in the Kill story forum you might have seen this, cause i posted it there by accident and i got flamed for it.

Last night i raced my friend's GSR three times. I absolutely destroyed him the first time and then he wanted to go again. so we went and i took off and pulled atleast a carlegth on him. But since we were on a side road i kinda let off after the first small turn cause i didnt know how far down we were going. So he flies by me and claims victory. So im like, ok lets go agian. Same thing happens the third time. I pull out ahead and think i have it won so i let off the throttle and he flies by me.
My question is, if we go to a long enough rad in say the industriall neighborhood and set a start and finish line, will i be able to take him all the way down? I think i will be able to but the only thing that is making me doubt it is how he has VTEC in 3rd and 4th gear where as i dont.

Oh ya, i have an intake and he has just a tenzo R muffler.
thanks,
david

So you weren't smart enough to learn the first time?

If you read what PassatVR6 wrote, you have an answer, and IMO, it's a good one. Though one that not many Si owner's like to hear.

Being an Si owner myself, as much as I hate to admit it, I'm in the group that thinks that the GSR can take us after 3rd gear. As soon as those VTEC juices start flowing, they'll be pulling past.

So if you want to win against them, keep it short and low speed. Street light to street light, you'll have a much better chance.

Well I have a buddy of mine that owns an auto SI 92 I think.. and when we match up I beat him from start to finish.. I have a 94 vtec..
That really isn;t my point though.. I have raced MANY MANY GSR's and I have beaten most but not all... so I don't really see how an SI, which I can whoops consistently.. is gonna keep up with a GSR.. oh unless auto has a big effect on acceleration.. which I am sure it does..

I just want to add that you should never be ashamed of your car. I think a lot of people take things to seriously when they hear they will get beat. I hope that no Prelude owner bought their car strictly for speed, that would be very hilarious if you did. Keep in mind that you have the wrong car if you think your going to beat everyone else that owns a Honda. Hell, out of all of my friends I probably have the slowest car and least hp and I am totally content with that.

But the SI you're whooping is an automatic! Surely that must mean something?

Let's not turn this into an SI bashing post! Please?
