Whatup... thats my car in the video.
First thing I want to say is you guys aren't nearly as big ****heads as the RSX kids are!
Now-- when I posted that video on po.com, I let everyone know what happened... we lined up at 30 to race... I did the honks and the guy said he couldn't hear me, so my camera guy did a 3 finger count so that everyone could see it, the only reason I honked was so people watching the video would know when we were going to go, but my friend caught me off gaurd at the end, so I tried to get that last honk in. I didn't jump him-- I was actaully slow after the 'go'.
About my car being slow... Not sure if you guys know or not, but the SS prelude runs high 16s stock... Im in the low 14s now-- I've never met anyone who owned an SS prelude that was faster than mine. I realize its not a 5 speed (it will be soon (swap)) but I can still beat most 5 speed preludes.
I would love to race another WRX but the fact is I was shocked to see one here and couldn't wait to race it.
There were a few reasons we started from a stop-- the SS tranny is not only slow, but its super weak, hard launches and/or nitrous in first gear is a big no no. That plus we were down town-- there was really no place to go from a stop without a cop hitting those awful blue lights.
We ran from 30 to 110 we may have gone more than that but the road started to curve... (thats why I changed lanes at the end)
I know you guys don't like seeing a video of your cars losing-- but it wasn't unfair like you guys thought.
