    Integra type "R"

    on the way home from a friends house, late, around 12:30am, i see this white Integra type "R" pull out of the gas station hauling a**. screeching his tiers in 1st and 2ed eventually pulling up next to me. for not being much of a fan of Integras this one was pretty nice, very clean looking, and the exhaust sounded pretty good. so we give it a go from about 45/50(im in third) three honks and i slam it. i imedetly jump to a 2.5- 3 CL and climbing. i shut down at a little over 100. the second run we were fortuneate enough to get a red light. we both launch at the light, and it was game over for the integra.when i shut down i had about a bus L on him, after i shut down and slowed he did his ricer fly by at WOT. i was pretty happy about my launch, ive only done it twice, and this was my best so far.

    Hmm, awd vs fwd from a stop. I guess I can see how you won. lol. Seriously though, a stock Type R isnt fast. Even with standard bolt-ons its limited. Really need to race a boosted Type R then see whats up. I used to be one of those "Ricers" till I got into the serious honda HP game. It's just so fun to blow by someone who thinks a Honda is gutless.

    But regardless, good kill.

    What are you talking about? Stock R's have 200hp vs a WRX with 227. Thats not much of a difference when the R weights about 500 pounds LESS. Are you by any chance modded? I would have to think that both being stock from a roll a Type R may take a WRX.

    Your car is basically bone stock. Hard to believe you be pulling that hard on an ITR on a roll.

    my friend has a type r with intake, meugan chip, and headers...we raced from a 40mph roll and i was in second, i wwalked him but we shut down by like 80 due to traffic with me 1 car lengths infront of him..i only have a tbe at the moment so he held up pretty decently...but if the type r was modded and you are basically stock, it might not have been a real type r..just the badges..who knwos though

    I've actually had a ride in a hatch with a type R swap in it with all the bolt-ons and it didn't feel that fast to me. A hatch is even lighter than an actual type R integra too. I guess I just must be bias toward turbo honda's cause I have had 2. In thier stock form they aren't that fast imo. And a type R is nearly the fastest honda next to the s2000 and NSX if I'm not mistaken.

    ITRs are track cars not straightline cars. I have driven one and I would think it woudl take a stock WRX from a roll moreso teh faster you are going.

    Mad 3rd gear pull yo!

    When I was stock I raced a type R from about 60 or 70 and he pulled on me.
    I was like .
    I thought it was going to be a easy win for me.
    By the way he said he was stock.

    as others have said.... A stock wrx vs. stock typeR would be a good race with the type R probably winning. Also, you said this one was modded, so just assuming he has the usual i/h/e he should have no problem putting 3+ cars on you.

    I raced one with my stock evo when it only had about 50 miles on it, I can't be sure what he had other than an exhaust and some gauges. . but it wasn't even funny )

    yes as far as i know he was stock, except for maby cat back or a mufler. also i had a 2001 prelude befor the WRX, and stock there 200hp and i had intake header and catback and it still wasnt very quick. also that 27hp is a difference maker.

    eh, I would not use those statistics as reference to how quick a Type R is. I have seen time with magazines as low as 6.5 (0-60) and 14.7 (1/4mile). As far as the real world goes, it difficult to find people that can actually drive these cars well because you need to launch perfectly and utilize the high redline. I know guys that consistantly got 14.7/14.8 in stock type R and if you browse the honda forums there are low 14's with bolt on's and guys doing 13's with bolt on's and EM with some pretty impressive traps.

    yeah, but the prelude is known for being slower than the typeR and about on par with the GSR. For having the extra horsepower and torque it really does not pull much harder. Several GSR and TypeR and even Prelude owners will attest to the fact that the prelude does not perform like it has that extra 30hp

    I ran VERY close with a stock Evo in my GSR from a roll. We were on 290 heading west towards woodfield rd. I came off of the Elgin O'Hare/Thorndale exit and he was coming from 355 going west as well... At about 45mph we played around upto about 55mph where we ran from about 55mph - 70mph. He put a good 2 or so cars on me, but then we went again from 60mph - 115 or so and I was right at his rear doors when we hit 90mph or so and held pretty strong there.
    luckily we never ran into a light.

    as being a former itr owner. those cars are pretty quick. and from a roll, not bad either. easy to get the car up into the 8k rpm range and keep it in lift for the extra umph !!!
    i had both the wrx and itr at the same time so my wife and i raced each other and switching cars and raced again. for a modded wrx game over but for a stock wrx the itr might give you a run and you might get a decient look at the tail lights. all depends on the driver and who is modded !!

    all in all the itr was a killer cornering car and pulling out of turns at 8k rpms

    have you ever been 4 bagged ???
