I finally had my first "Real" race today. Me and my brothers friend decided to race. so we went to the nearest highway, we started off on a rolling start of about 40 since there were cars behind us... to make a long story short, he beat me. It was my first race and i was pretty nervous. He was driving a 94 civic with a couple mods and I was driving my pretty stock prelude. The only reason he beat me I think was because I started off in third gear and he started off in first. I didnt know it was better to start in first. I had never been in first gear at such a high speed, so it didnt really seem rite. I still had ALOT of fun. Im not too experienced in street racing, so it would be cool and you all can leave some tips and tricks. THANKS

Yeah 1st at 40 is like suicide... even if it was at 6K RPM it would be better to be in second around 4k RPM so then you dont hafta shift right away...

but not bad for your first... i still havnt had a real set up race... but plenty stop light to stop light-ers

was that civic swapped with a b16 or b18? LS-VTEC or something? Heck a 5th gen auto lude should take that civic, unless it was swapped.

Reminds me of the time I raced an S2000 and started in 3rd gear at 55 and my cam doesnt REALLY wake up until 4K rpm. I was so pissed that he kinda hung with me :(

Now that I'm technically without a vehicle I've been driving the Evo IX daily, and let me say that NOBODY wants to ever go from a dig. It doesn't help them any since I demolish them from a roll too.
