Vs. CRX

1991 Stock (As far as I know) Honda CRX..

Just from toying with eachother on roads I feel I can beat him, but if I do it may not be in a 1/4.. maybe from a highway pull.. which is most likely being that his top end is probably ****ty.. but what do you guys think the damage would be in a 1/4mile?

Re: Vs. CRX

i would think it would be the opposite. you with the advantage from a dig and him with the advantage on the freeway.

Re: Vs. CRX

Run 'em. Then let us know.

I don't have nearly the knowledge of CRXes or V6 Stangs to make anywhere near an accurate prediction. I do agree with Thomas, though, I would have imagined that you would have the advantage from a dig, being RWD and all.

Re: Vs. CRX

What kind of Mustang do you have? If you are both stock then I think you should beat him either way. If he's working with a few mods or worse yet for you a DOHC VTEC motor then you'll probably get F'ed in the A. CRX's are really easy to make fast.

EDIT: I see this is posted in the 3.8L V-6 section so that must be what you have. Again I think you will beat him stock.

Re: Vs. CRX

If the thing is a beater like most CRX's you will take him to 60. After 60 it will be close to like 90 or so. But your extra 2 cylinders should get you to 115 before him. Hmm he is real light though. I dunno it is a tough call.

Re: Vs. CRX

Well, this toying around was on backroads he blew past me in a double yellow, so I just floored it and kept up with him.. idk if it's because of his shifting or what.. but I figured since my car is a V6 Automatic, and from just driving my car.. it's kinda slow on acceleration.. and it's heavy as ****.

Yeah, I think he is a stock CRX motor, and is at a 2 cylinder disadvantage, but he is a lot lighter then me. So it may be close.. I found out its a kid I know after the backroad horse play and he talks a lotta ****, saying he's fast.. but when I asked him to run me up at the track he said no.. he'll race me on backroads.. not straight ones, ones with a lot of curves.. I told him I already hit a tree and don't want to do it again, sum it all up, the kids a ***** and runs his mouth..

We were going up hill and he was, to my knowledge, flooring it.. and I was pulling on him.. I'd have to let go of the gas here n there to prevent from flattening his rear more then it already is.

I'm going to try to get him up at the track or at least a stop light on straight ground and let ya guys know how it turns out.

I'm also stock, I bet if I was orange I'd win.

To my knowledge, he is stock aswell.

Re: Vs. CRX

And about the beater CRX post.. this car sucks, but I don't know whats under the hood.. although it wouldnt be hard to tell..

The hood pins popped out and the hood came up and cracked his windshield when he was driving, this of course before dropping a pipe the next day.. so the car seems ****ty to me.. I know they used wood cawk (not slang for cock, just don't know how to spell the word.. sound it out!) as weath stripping on some parts of the car, and the wide body kit is held on my wood screws... the things ****ty, and I feel comfortable racing him in public, I'm pretty sure I'd win.. IDK I'll get back to ya'll

Re: Vs. CRX

I remember my tickets meteora, thats why I'd rather him at the track.. CRX SI? IDK if it's a CRX SI, unless they are all CRX SI.. IDK, I know the car is 100% stock, talked to his mechanic yesterday about it..

Not an attempted sleeper, he bought it for 2,000$ as a first car and he says he doesnt want to race it because he knows its not fast, but talks **** at the same time.. DUNNO

Exactly, thats why I was curious as to who would win stock vs stock just so I can be able to say, "lol" whenever he talks about how fast his car is.. he's a complete and utter idiot.

my dads cousin has two of them. a older blue w/white stripe GTS and a newer SRT10 or whatever they are now. he owns a nationwide auction company so i guess its not that hard to pick up expensive *** cars for dirt cheap. the GTS was fast as i recall (back then the fastest thing i had rode in), but now im pretty sure the Cobra would match it, if not take it from 80 to 160, however i would puss out and those year GTS gear out at 190 iirc. havent been in his new one yet (he would never attempt to drive it from AZ to central cali, he DD's his GTS) but im pretty sure it would smack me around right now, but its nitrous fed (75 shot last time we talked but he was going to move to a 100) and with a suspension setup for crazy amounts of twisties, it would annihilate me whole. im sure he would agree the GTS might lose out to a mildly modded Terminator, he loves them as well and was shocked when he heard i sold it.

I'm not sure if it's that high but I've heard from a guy that is pretty high up in Chrysler that it's over 50%.

It seems real high to me too, but who knows.. it may have been that particular dealer? Still sucks crashing 1 outta 10 if you ask me.

Re: Vs. CRX

lol maybe Dodge shouldve went the GT500 route and made it to where the ECU does not unlock the full potential till so many miles, it just retards timing and adds in another degree or so every 100 miles.

i highly doubt its that high. 1/10 sounds like its stretching it, id imagine most people who can afford Vipers only get them for novelty, not because they are pretty fast.

lol, El Es Juan?

Re: Vs. CRX



Now imagine it without a hood and a cracked windshield.

Kakaka, it's a CRX Si, without just a dual overhead cam LS motor in it I believe, from an integra, recently ****ed up his whole front end, being that he did the motor swap and didnt change suspension and kept the stock axel, too much torque intended I guess ****ed it up..
