man this was fun, and normally I wouldn't post something so trivial, but this has to be done.

on my way home minding my own business, I pull up on this civic si with wheels, stupid exhaust and the works. I slowly pass him because he obviously doesn't understand that it's legal to go the speed limit. as I pass him, the passenger looks over and laughs. I slow down and look right back. they say hey you want to run? I said nah, gas is expensive and your car isn't worth my time. they say right, you're weak... you need to be at a stop, we understand - that slow wrx and all. I said isn't it passed your bedtimes, your lev car isn't going be worth my time. he nods, drops it into 2nd and takes off, then slows down. I am just pacing him laughing histerically. they say, come on why won't you run... so I said fine, why not. I was in the mood for a quick win without even trying. we go at about 40 and instantly pull about 3 cars on them, shift and gain another before I let off the gas. I slow back down and look over at them and they won't even look at me, so I start honking my horn with my finger in the air twirling like big deal, it's a civic. they say you got the jump on us. I said fine, don't honk... just go, when I see you accelerate, i'll go. they said that's not fair, I said who cares your car isn't worth my time. they say ok, and immediatly hit the gas, I follow and pull 2 cars instantly and look over at them when I pass. they slowly roll up to the light that's red and say you won because you have a turbo. I said it's a wrx, did you think it was n/a? they said it could of been, I laughed and said why don't you give me $5 for the gas I wasted, they turned through a red light making a left and peeled out.

so much fun, I had to share!

It's kids like that that give the Honda guys a bad name. Too bad the retards outnumber the "good guys" by tenfold. Heh, good run man... I liked that story. :D

Typically, if you're a jerk to a kid, he's going to be a jerk back.

Granted, you had the faster car in this instance so you looked like the big winner, but was it totally necessary to aggitate the teenies by telling them you don't want to waste gas? I think a simple "no, don't want to race" would suffice in this instance, but then again, there are ego's at stake I guess :D

Hey, if I pull up next to a viper and aggro him like a kid and he tells me that he doesn't wanna waste his gas on me. I'd understand.

Another note: Gas is expensive. I'd be saying the same thing if some pos civic rolls up in his eggroll and eggs me on.

Lol..I understand man, but you have to understand that when you're dealing with stuck up kids (Civic Si kids) then maybe its best to just ignore their taunting? If you tell someone that you don't want to waste your gas on them and you fall prey to their antics, well...I don't know. Maybe its just me.

Wow, that pretty much explains it right there. I went to a 7thgencivic.com meet once, and all the cars were at least tasteful, if not tasteful and decently fast, and the people were totally cool. Too bad the jackholes "streetracers" give them a bad name.

I had an encounter with a blue late 90's SI a few weeks back. The story didn't warrant creating a new thread so I will tell my story here. My parents were in town and I was carting them around to go shopping. We pull up to a stoplight and roll next to a nice looking late 90's SI with exhaust. I rolled off the light slowly and the SI hit it from a 5mph roll. I reeled him in instantly in first and left him 2 cars back at 60mph where I let off. My Mom was pretty silent in the back seat of the car. My Dad was a different story. He was pointing at various cars, and saying "can that black Grand Am take us?....don't think so, can that red Honda take us? ....don't think so". It was pretty amusing to say the least. I was waiting to see a new Corvette, Viper or faster car to say yeah that one will take us Dad.

I agree, however the passenger looked over and laughed. it was clear as day, so techincally he made the first move. normally when I pull up to a car and look over, I just give a nod.

just curious, but anybody know what si's (new ones) trap at with I/H/E?
Civic Si-
0-60-7.6 seconds
1/4-15.9 s @ 87.8 mph
If it were any other car I would say a few tenths quicker in the 1/4 with a few mph faster trap........but we are talking about a Honda which reponds better than any other car in the world to mods, so it's hard to say.

I/H/E probably is going to net a mid to low 15 second time I'd imagine, but I'm not sure.

Also, maybe you could say that Honda's respond to mods better than most/all NA 4 bangers..but NA V8s responds better to simple bolt ons and we all know 4 cylinder F/I cars (WRX, Evo, etc..) all respond better to simple mods than any Honda, so...

I had a honda with all the visual goodies attached to it(i.e triple layer spoiler, dual exhaust, body kit etc etc) on the free way try to run me. I put the usual 3 on him and let off. He eventually passes me down the road and wont even look over.

It just so happens hes takes the off ramp i did. So im behind him at the stop light when he decides its time to show me up. Got myself about a 1 minute hydrolic show. He obviously showed me who's boss.

Nah, I think the get at least 9hp and 4lbs of tq from an Iceman intake and a Warlock 4" fart can

:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

And when they guage with the butt dyno, the difference is always huge, if not bigger. Those mods will totally change the way it feels, cause it'll pull so much stronger and really pin you to the seat then.:D
