    1998 Honda Civic EX

    This is how my day went.

    Woke up, got ready, went to a friends house, drove to wal mart with 8 cars and went to go buy water / drinks / snacks for 20 people. Headed to the track at around 4:00 AM. Got there around 5:20, waited until 6 AM and bullshited until the gates opened.

    We drove in, filled out a form, got inspected. Went to the pits and ate (races didn't start til 9 AM) changed out some tires on the other cars. We had a 2006 Pontiac GTO, a 1998 Ford Mustang, 2006 Acura RSX-S, 2002 Acura RSX-S, 2002 Chevrolet Silverado, 2005 Suburu WRX, 1998 Honda Civic and a Pontiac Fiero GT (lol).

    There wasn't many people there so we got unlimited runs, the wait was around 45 mins per run because they ran Motorcycles and special cars as well.

    Here are the times, I didn't get video because I forgot my camera and video camera.
    1st Run
    9:21 AM
    Left Lane
    R/T .745
    60 2.668
    330 7.780
    1/8 11.843
    MPH 61.08
    1000 15.317
    1/4 18.240
    MPH 77.43

    Best Run
    R/T .239
    60 2.519
    330 7.188
    1/8 11.067
    MPH 62.90
    1000 14.454
    1/4 17.317
    MPH 78.73

    I got 8 runs in and tried out different launching techniques, different RPM starts. All in all it was fuckin fun, I raced a Z06 Corvette and he fuckin spun his tires from launch to 1/8 mile. lol.

    Man, those are some pretty slow times. You're first r/t sucked. But you improved for the 17.317 1/4.

    They're slow until you add the VTEC sticker on the windshield and the Honda "H" badge to the back window. You definitely need to do some bolt ons before adding the Type-R badge or you may blow your rear end.

    Main thing is that you had fun and would you go again? You probably would, I don't know why people are expecting world breaking times from the civic and his truck. And because it was your first time, at least you didn't hit the 20s because I thought you would hahaha. Kudos to you.
    Nice post.

    What did the fiero and the silverado run?

    My V8 dakota can hit high 16 seconds if conditions are just right... lol. Normally in the low 17s though. And that is with Quadcab, 3.92 gears, LSD in rear, and the lazy stock 4.7L 230hp motor without any mods. I want to get the superchips for my truck though, it is supposed to liven it up. People have posted times in low 16s on the 87 octane tune, and lower with the 91/93 octane tune.

    Guess I came off as kind of an ass in my post. Sounds like you had fun, although you are crazy to wake up that early to drag race.

    OOOOOOOOhhhhhhh, thanks for clarifying.

    Looks like you had fun Khnemu, doesn't matter what the times were any kind of racing is pretty fun. If you could put that Fiero on a road course you would have had a lot more fun though

    I didn't take my truck, my battery died Friday after I installed a cat-back system.

    Both times were mine, I was using the Civic. It's a single cam you can expect those numbers from that car with just an cold air intake.

    The Fiero didn't run, the guy in the Silverado was 17 so they wouldn't let him race.

    GTO posted low 13s, the Mustang was mid 14s the WRX was running 16s for some reason and so was the other RSX-S.

    I forgot to add my JDM and IheartDrifting stickers, and to add Si all over the car with some shitty body kit and a big ass spoiler.

    I had a lot of fun, I was talking to a guy that had a 427 SS Chevelle and holy shit was that shit clean. It was pearl white with 427SS badges, I talked to him and he was running low 11s. There was a super charged Shelby Cobra and I talked to him and a guy in a Z06. There was also a Honda Civic EX (Same as the one I ran) running high 11s shit was insane.

    Also, Honda's don't have rear ends.

    Not dogging on anybody, but talk about some slow motion racing.

    And I thought my 13.0 second timeslip was slow. As long as you were having fun though. That's what it's all about.

    I've always wanted to take my xD to the track just to see how good of a driver I actually am. Please tell me that all those cars were at least manual transmissions.

    The GTO and Mustang were Automatic, WRX and RSX-S were stick, the Civic was also stick.
