    My WRX vs. Integra (what is it with Integra drivers?)

    I don't know what it is, but it seems like the only guys who want to race are Integra VTEC drivers....With no mods either (for them)....I get ignored by Mustangs and Camaros. I was at a light and an Integra came up behind me. As the light turned green, he really got up on my back so I moved in the other lane. He didn't pass me, so at next light I was wondering if he wanted some....Light turned green and he floored it....I had started normal, so he was a car length ahead, then I hit it and left him like he was standing still.....shut down at around 70mph as I was in a 45mph area....He never even tried to catch up....For some reason, unmodded Integra VTEC drivers think they are the it....will youth never learn?

    My mods are:

    Perrin Uppipe
    Unichip (tuned at Currys Auto)
    K&N
    STI short shift
    Intake resonator removed
    Gauge Pack
    Perrin rear sway bar

    The unichip is tuned to hit max torque as soon as possible. That plus the uppipe, means a really nice quick boost when you get above 2500 RPM. On a Mustang Dyno, I was getting 204hp at the wheel.

    I have ROTA Tarmacs with Kumho's coming next week....I hate the stock wheels, and I've lived with them for two years....No more! ha...

    p.s. Perrin puts out some quality products....really happy with the quality.

    Not all Integra drivers...

    I know when to not mess with a car (which is almost always - Integras are not fast, just kinda quick).

    Unfortunately, some HoMoCo drivers think having VTEC means something like having a turbo.

    You guys have nothing but respect from this HoMoCo driver. I'm getting a Rex sooner or later.

    btw: the cars that always seem to want to race me are always mustang GT's and Cobras (late 80's through 2002s). both of which are good races. i've still never lost to a GT, even in stock form, though it was always within a few carlengths. with the cobras though i either win or always seem to be right on their asses the whole way with them just inching away slowly, though i havent raced one since i've got my turboback in, which helps a lot

    i'm always driving by a bud's house with a 96 cobra for a rematch of him beating me. i knew him in high school but havent talked to him in a while except when we bump into eachother, so i wouldnt go up to his door and ask him to race. i just gotta keep hoping to bump into him again

    This is a strange thread. I mean, you implied that no one wants to race you but Integra's. So, the question is, do you like to race? If not, then you shouldn't...but if you do, then you should be happy that someone challenges you.

    Also, not all Integra owners actually think they are going to beat you..I bet you race plenty of cars that are faster than yours just for fun or to gauge your car's power. Should they clown you?

    Its a ****ing oxymoron I think...

    Let me clarify....I have total respect for Integras, they are great cars....I was just saying, for some reason, the only people who seem to want to race lately are Integra drivers....Thats all....Its all good.

    Usually it's the exact opposite out here. The only people that wanna run are camaros and mustangs. There are plenty of imports, but if you rev at the from a light they'll pretend to fidgit with the stereo or act like they dont notice. Ahhh...the intimidation factor

    Stock v. stock, the Integra Type-R runs about the same as the WRX in 1/4 mile. 0-60, forget it. I wouldn't even mess with any WRX in my Integra at this altitude.

    A couple of months after I bought my WRX, some old G1 Integra (not a GS-R) passed me and moved in front of me as I approached a red light in my WRX. I normally coast to a stop for red lights - no point in wasting gas and brakes. After the light turned green and I got to cruising speed, I passed him, then moved back into the left lane (I needed to turn left in a few lights). At the next red light, the guy cuts in front of me into my lane. So this time I move over and floor it at the green and was already a car length in front as I shifted to 2nd. After that he stayed very far behind in my rear view (must have learned not to mess with). This Integra wasn't even VTEC, probably only 135-140 hp! Why did he even bother?
