Yep i was at my cousins house and was on my way home when my other cousin was leaving also...He drives a stock 2000 Teg R...I have raced him before when I had 500 miles on my 06 (stock) tC like 2 months ago and I used to launch at 4k rpm's and he would always beat me off the line by like 10 cars...Today I am a much better driver with my car launching at about 2400rpm's...we Ran twice today in a BIG enclosed school parking lot at about 11pm (I know we're dumb for racing here) but the first run I counted down 3-2-1 go-boom I took off 1st and 2nd gear and had him by a car...I asked whats wrong?..he said his Vtec wasn't kicking right the first time I was like ok lets go again (he sucha liar because I heard his Vtec)...raced again, 3-2-1 boom-I lagged and my revvs dropped and jumped again then I was side by side with the Type R til mid 2nd gear and he took offby almost a car...I was pretty happy with my results knowing he hit 14.9-1/4 mile and I can actually beat him off the jump with a good lanuch...Later I was torn apart by a 91 tsi AWD going home...I felt slow and exited...

haha nice, but launching at 2400 rpms is better? than 4k? Just wondering is it because at 4k you will spin the tires out before you go? sorry im new i need to learn how to launch good, i raced my friends camaro today z28 stock...yeah pretty uch smoked me but i burne dout so much cause i was launching at 4.5k rpms..lol anyway get back to me

HAHA 4500? ya thats a little high unless you get some decent 245s, (not stock tires), With the stock tires its been said the best launch is about 2400-3000 rpms.......

Nice runs.....heh, he actually said his VTEC wasn't working? Only time that would be true is if the engine oil was still relatively cold, I guess...he shouldn't be pushing the car like that if it hasn't warmed up yet.


What mph did you guys finish your race at?

I dont remember that well because its been a while since Ive raced him that night...I think we finished at like 60-65ish....and Oh yeah Ive raced him again from the HW, I did a ricer flyby and my cousins Teg R still killed me by 10 cars at high speeds...
