Well, nothin special, I beat him ofcourse. I later talked to the guy, at the next light, and he told me that he only had an intake. When we started, i was a little ahead ( him at my front tire) but after like a second or 2, (didn't really look at the rpm or speed) I started pulling hard on him till he was like to my rear wheels. Then when we hit like 65-70, I started to pull hard on him then we slowed. It was a nice friendly race. I also raced my friend on his 00 Prelude Manual and it was a very very close race. We were just same almost all the way.. Didn't get to race to about 85 like I did with the Accord tho. Oh yeah.. the accord had dual exhaust one on right and one on left. It was a Sedan and Automatic. I guess I did ok for not losin to the Prelude tho.. Just to make sure my friends not easy on his gas, we switched cars and I drove his Prelude and him mine.. oh yeah.. I told him to powerbrake to 2000. That's what I think is really good for a start.. What do you guys thinks a good rpm for starting?
