Came across this on a Honda forum. Someone said he was probably at about 17,000 rpm. $$$ down the drain!!!

Yeah that does suck, I guess it's running some kind of special transmission that I have no knowledge of.

Do what, run 9's/10's? Well it's not too expensive and there are endless options for Hondas. Plus they way next to nothing. One of my friends in Kansas City, who's also helping me out and giving me his 44mm Tial WG for cheap, has a shop by downtown. He's had a couple 9/10 second daily drivers.

They don't look like that one though, they look 100% stock on the outside.

9's... on 1320 feets!

Come on you don't have 9 second daily driver. You have 9 seconds punishment with a license plate maybe not possible on the road...

He's my ex girlfriend's brother and when I first went to her house, he had a 92 Civic Sedan parked in front of their house, that looks 100% stock from behind. Then I noticed fat tires and intercooler up front. Daily driver 10 second beast.
Of course at that time he didn't have a shop at the time so now that he does, he's got some other 'milder' setups to d.d.

He's a very modest guy and very smart, but he doesn't really waste time taking pictures or scanning time slips. He does have some videos, though.

Well they're talking about something else, if I understand you right...

Yeah, there's something about the shifter not being gated. Also, something about a dogbox gearset and faceplate engagement I have no idea what those are but anyway...

1st, 2nd, 1st.

10 seconds and 9 seconds is like driving to NYC and going to the moon

I think I understood you right...



His first major, personal build was in the 10's, his second Civic hatch was in the 9's.

Well, I stand corrected. That car is very impressive. Where is the full cage? There is a photo of the interior and I see no cage at all. He must get thrown off track a lot. Those headers are CRAZY! Everything looks sorted out and I like how he doesn't have purple, yellow, and neon colored fittings all over the engine.

Seriously, if I may, why a honda? Buy a nicer, better engineered vehicle and you'll probly spend less overall on a superior end result!
Sorry, but the rice in my area is so domineering that I sometimes let slip something bigoted.

i think the appeal of the japanese cars is all the off-the-shelf parts. we here in saab world like to be original, so one-off parts suit us best. and we can't stand being surrounded by japenese cars and american suvs on the roads (at least i can't).

I don't like seeing ricers as much as anyone, but I see ricers and racers under two totally different categories. There are such a thing as nice looking Honda's. Not all of them are original but the ones that do stand out are usually very nice.

I've never owned a Honda but I'm half asian and all my Vietnamese friends are Honda Honda Honda Honda Subaru Nissan.

I wouldn't say you'd spend less, though. When cars get to the point of 9/10 second quarter miles, I doubt luxury and comfort is the first thing in mind .
