I was at the machine shop last night, even though Im not even supposed to be outta bed at all...(long story short, I lost between a van and my body) and I was making fun of one of the guys that work for driving a Honda...I mean come on...its a Honda.
Well, after about 2 hours of me saying that even w/o 2nd gear right now, I would still kill him, and other misc things...he got fed up and told me to get into his car. He drives down to the other end of the street and proceeds to rev a little and instructs me to belt up. I comply while rolling my eyes.
All of a sudden he friggin guns it and holds the steering wheel all the way to the left, he hits 2nd gear, still holding the wheel to the left, finally in 3rd he straightens the wheel out, and hits 4th...We are coming up on this massive turn and he doesnt slow down, I dont know what his speed was, cause his speedometer was broken, but around the turn he kicked out the rear end and drifted around it...freakin awesome...I had to give him props. The entire time that he was tearing a$$ the tach was pinned past 8k RPM and the tach was only 8k RPM.
He then took one of his customers out and half-way through the straight blows both of his half-shafts apart. It was a horrifying sound, and he yelled, "That always happens! Piece o' **** Honda half-shafts!"
All I can say is that is the quickest N/A VTEC honda I have ever been in. Hopefully my last. It was impressive...I am so sorry to say that cause I despise Honda's with a passion. Oh and this one looks like any normal Honda civic body wise...the only mod I can tell that it has on the outside is the rims, which are 17" 12 spoke silver colored...
Anyway...I don't know why I wrote this...maybe its just a warning to those folks that are in the area and see the car...dont race it!
