    The Beauty of All-Wheel Drive, Part II - On dry pavement!

    My friend in his turbocharged Si and I are on our way back from Garage SPL to my house. He just had his car dyno'd last Saturday with 222 hp at the wheels, and was at the shop mess with his AFC a little. Anyway, I see a wide open road ahead going up hill, so I pull to his right and give him the universal guy salute (you know, the way you kinda nod your head upward). The light turns green and we both floor it. I start moving right away but I look in my side view mirror and see him still there for a second. By that time, I was already a car length ahead of him and we were totally even the rest of the way to my house.

    When we get to my house, I gets out of his car, looks at me, and just starts shaking his head. "I didn't have any traction, argh!" he says to me. I hold my hands up with my elbows bent and say "What can I say, All-Wheel Drive dude..." and he promptly tells me to shut up

    *cough* get a boost controller and leave him further behind you *COUGH*

    I am quite supprised myself to hear these storys, i thought that turbo'ed civics would be faster.

    But i guess unless your F&F and spend 10K your not going to get a 13sec car huh lol!!

    I just cant wait to get my rex, slap on the mods ive bought for it, and toast my first TA or Camaro in the 1/4....

    My list is growing bigger of the KIDS in my city that need their assses handed to them

    Soundsike your friend has all power- no traction problems. Hope he's spending effort on suspension and brakes for his next project.

    Heh he's got Cusco coilovers and brand new Pirelli tires (don't remember the exact name, but it was the top of the line all-season Z-rated ones) so his suspension is about taken care of...Brembos are next on his list...
