    First race for me, against a modded V6 Accord

    I see this Accord coming up the street from my friends place, has blue neon ground effects, and when I pull up behind him I see an A-Piller with a couple guages on it. I play around with him a bit and then we stop and I ask him what he has done, he says just an intake (had an AEM license plate holder so thats the brand I guess) But I don't know why he had all those guages, I was thinking turbo, but I didn't hear a BOV, but you can't hear ours either so who knows. So a little later we come up to a stop light. Seeing how this is my first manual and only a little over 2 months old I screw up my excuse for a launch. So through first we are about even, then in second I pull about a car length on him and shut down around 60 (not trying to get a speeding ticket).

    Somehow I think I either really need to practice launching and shifting or he has more HP then I think with just an intake, but I don't really know. I figured I should have had a little more on him, but a win's and win, and the guy was cool too.

    Me - 2002 5 speed WRX, K&N Air Filter, Samco Intercooler Hoses, Prodrive Axel Back.

    Ever heard the expression "The 1/4 mile is won in the first 60'."

    Guess what. It's true.

    Work on you launches and you'll humiliate all comers.

    I used to own an Accord V6, no mods. WRX would kill that thing off the line even if that guy had mods. You just have to launch right. Rev to 5000, and dump it, you'll beat most cars off the line like that, easy.
