Heres the story. My friend always thought his civic was faster than my BMW. I had always ignored him until yesterday. We were going home from a club like one in the morning. So I start revving at him at a stoplight. We both take off. I had the headstart but i decided to let go of the pedal a little bit to let him catch up. Now he's lined up with me and tries to pass me up. I downshift to 2nd and leave him. The next day i asked him " you still think your hot?". He said i got lucky. I guess he was just mad. :P

why did you even go through the trouble of shifting to third and then back to 2nd... could have just stayed in 2nd the whole time.

nice kill though.

nice kill.

ALOT of ppl underestimates the 323. A 323 manual can really do some damage.

Now, a 323 auto with a slipping torque converter... Teh Suck!
I still killed a riced out civic at my school... He's got a Vtec sticker, but who knows.
Kid's got: rims, exhaust, intake, headlights. Sounds like crap. He thinks he's hot shit.... we hit it at a light during lunch one day and I blew by him. He still thinks he's the shit because his brother's gettin an M3 and he's going to "own me"... Yah, he would.... in his brother's car though...

did some research:

E21 323i was produced from 77-82, as a 2 door model.
The engine was M20 producing either 120 hp or 143 hp....not sure about that since i found 2 different figures in two different places. 143 seems more accurate, as the M20 2.5L in E34 puts out 168 ho
