i dunno whats the deal with these friggin honda motors that people give them so much praise, or stnags etc..... I DO agree that Integra engines, and of the such are a beautifully engineered engine. But i know there are people on here who have beaten cars with more power than they have by a good margin, yet might not post for sakes of people flaming them for "you beat a _________? they have like ________hp stock, musta been a bad driver". I personally have been able to take car of sum cars that were legitmately more powerful than mine (numbers wise) , AND all i have a 2000 gt 5 speed, most of my recent wins, came when i was stock. NOW, whether i beat them by a nose, a bumper, a license plate, or a entire 500 feet, I still won, there is no difference. HP doesnt AlWAYS equal speed. older stangs have alotta exhasut, and alotta HP rating.....but stock 1/4 miles numbers n such are just barely slower, or faster than our cars. (gt & gt's). I odont discredit anyone, but i also know what i have been able to do. and whether people belive me, or they dont, i dont get phased, or affected, i could care less. But just as most others, i dont post, to avoid those who just refuse to belive anything that doesnt "seem right". If i sat here and told you that I beat a rsx-s....alotta people would say, a) ur lieing, b) he cant drive c) what kina mods u got) or d) he wasnt racing with you.
I could sit here and list a number of cars ive raced, and won, convincingly..or by a hair, and many of you would think there is no way i could, cuz they have x amount of hp..and at a time i had 140 hp...well i think numbers are numbers, and thats what they are. I DO agree numbers appeal to people, just as it is nice to hear a person on here with XS TURBO post his numbers, which are very satisfying. Cuz its a good feeling to know u have alot of HP unda ya hood, but im sure each and everyone of you..who street races, has beaten atleast one car that your not "supposed" to beat......what do you guys think? what cars have you beaten that you had "no chance" according to the average person.?

i think it's due to the fact that most people on here are "mag racers" and not "street racers". while i applaud them for doing so, some people have to understand that ANYTHING could happen on the streets.

I don't post any of my wins or races anymore. Too many people calling bs on my times or my wins. Anything can happen on the streets though. Street racing vs Track takes two different types of skill. some people are good at one or the other. good drivers are good at both.

...I was next to a Ferrari in Bellevue, and I smoked it at the light and I have a auto GT-S!!! I guess his car was too slow when I floored it cause his car wasn't moving very fast off the line... But when his Italian Exotic POS caught up to my car at the next light, he didn't even bother to look at me cause he lost so bad or something...

Sorry, bad joke.. :) I got done with two finals yesterday so I'm having my fun :)

last week i raced a gsr swap civic with i/h/e. i had my back seats and spare tire out. We went from a 10mph roll and I ended up about three lengths ahead at the end. The guy was taping it from his car. My car looked good in the video :)

Biggest Loss - Not really anything not saying I am unbeatable but I usually don't get to race-there aren't a lot of cars here. And I usually try to stay within my own brackets :) But the closest race I have ever run was a 240sx modded of course and he had about 3 inches on me till I popped in third. Course I had someone in the car with me too. I had an Audi A8 hang with me in the WRX.

LMAO! I just now noticed how old this thread was after reading your last post. I was fixing to to post and ask if your screename had been hacked or something because that did not seem like your writing style to me. I have to admit your grammar has improved greatly within the last 2 years. I give you props. In all honestly I could not even read your first post in this thread LMAO. Mad props for improving your skills.

Well, I was 17 when I got my GT and I will be 20 in 5 days. Ricer mentality has faded permanently.
