Well im cruising home last night when I notice a red civic hatch next to me. I believe it was a 92-95 body style? not sure, the really rounded ones. I notice the typical @sshole pipe, monster tach, and what looked like an s-afc above the steering column. Well that description fits most civics in the area, so you never really know what youre getting into. This specimen wasnt too obnoxiously loud, and had a pretty modest body kit - not ricey at all.
I downshifted into 2nd and so did he, then he was off. By the time i was shifting into 3rd he was still pulling strong for another second or more before he shifted. Halfway through third I gave up, with him a good 4 car lengths in front.
Now with only a Cobb reflash, Im hardly a big threat from a roll...but Im still positive he had a b-16/b-18 swap with bolt-ons to pull that hard. Also, I think he had an 8-9,000 redline to stay in 2nd for as long as he did.
Anyhow, fun encounter...too bad the guy was too cool to look over afterward for a thumbs up.
