    If he's serious about 2k then it isn't stock. He gets to check out your car but you didn't check his? That's the only way I would do it. You gotta know what he has first. Period.

    I had a 91 CRX Si back in HS and loved it. It's a great car (for a FWD). It was either Motor Trend or C&D that listed the Si weighing in at 2086. I weighed mine in at around 2300 with me and a full tank of gas (no cargo or anything). So tell me, where did the Si get the extra 300 lbs dude?

    My buddy has a 91 CRX Si with exhaust and intake and we have raced for the hell of it several times on the way back from car shows and such and I have a Stage 2 WRX and we would run from 45 mph and I would immediately pull like crazy and my car is an automatic and I wouldnt even be in the proper gear to try and make it even a little closer. The way I see it there are three possible situations here with this guy...1) This guy is truly metally retarded and has no idea what he has gotten himself into , 2) This guy was joking with you to get you to show up for a race and him not show up, or 3) This guy has a swap and is boosted and is gonna eat you for dinner....

    I was under the impression that the HF weighted the least. The car lacks alot of things like good bumper beams, sunroof, powersteering, and was made really light. I drove a HF with a stock LS motor with a t-25 (7 psi) and it was a beast. The owner had some used R-compounds on it and it was freakishly fast, with no wheel spin. I dont think the car I drove was stripped other then the crap it didnt have from the factory.

    Oh, I didn't know that the HF had all that stuff removed. And IIRC, the Si didn't have power steering either, just rack and pinion. Yep, the red 91 Si I had didn't have power steering because I remember the wheel was much harder to turn when it was standing still. I guess the bumper beams and sunroof equipment, possibly the engine in the Si weighed more. But on the flipside, the Si had 4 wheel disc brakes, the HF didn't and a disc brake setup weighs less than a drum setup.
    Dammit, now I really want to get my 240z built and go pick on some boosted CRXs!

    Yup. The HF was the super economy gas mileage model.
