um....are you sure that he wasnt a v6 and/or didnt have any mods. in any case, you should have beaten him if it was a 4 cl. accord

but then who knows

and also... where was this race, that you guys had a finish line ???

ps. what kind of race is it when you shut it down at 40... was this a track-retrofitted parking lot or something...

a lot of it doesnt make sense

He is trying to pull our chain. He probably is the Accord owner and got smoked himself.

maybe you're not as good of a driver as you had thought. Afterall, how good of a driver do you need to be to drive a tiptronic to 40mph?

i don't know about you all but i usually make it a point to wait to floor it until he's at the finish line. it's just good policy.



lay off the sauce dude. you're not makin any sense.

yeah dude, race to 40 miles an hour? thats not even to the end of 2cnd gear. any besides, hondas do suck ass, but the new accord v6 6spd does have a bit of juice, but still, you should own that shit.

dont kid your selves, a honda is a good car, and an accord with a 6 can blow the doors off of alot of cars (yeah bmw to).

if it was a 4 you probably need a lil more practice behind the wheel son. and if it was a 6 i dont know why you would have bothered...
