I killed a '00 Civic Si. Literally. Was sittig at a stop light and this high school kid in a buzzed / riced out civic pulled up next to me and yelled out the window "wanna race?" Said sure I needed a good laugh. Light turned green hit the gas lit the tires up pretty good and off I went the civic right along side. Looked over the kids grinnin from ear to ear. Look back straight then all of a sudden hear this loud crack and a boom. Look to the side the civic ain't there. Look behind me the civic has smoke comin out from under his hood and the car is swerving. I lock my brakes up and swing back around to where the car had came to a stop. The kids freakin out bad. I look under the front and oil is just runnin out on the ground and the motor ain't runnin. I get the kid to pop the hood and there is a huge crack in his block and some scorched wires and lines. His block had let go or just detonated horribly. He was runnin a turbo too. I got the kid to put the car in neutral and we pushed it into a parking lot out off the street. Felt sorry for the kid so I gave him a ride to the gas station down the street. Last I saw of him he was about to cry and was calling his dad.

That race gave a whole new meaning to a kill. :explode: I guess that means I won. :D

Well, I wouldn't want to be left stranded. I had somebody do me a favor once after I tore my old truck up during a street race. I had this old '67 ford that was running about 400 horse and 500 ft/lb under the hood. Had 4.10 posi Ford 9" rear under the back. Went too race this '67 Vette with a 427 in it. Took off when the light changed and hear and felt this loud boom and the passenger side rear end of the truck dropped straight down and the motor died. Vette took off of course. I hoped out of my truck and ran around back looked underneath and my rear end had broke in half next to the pumpkin. Truck wasn't going anywhere. The guy in the Vette saw me and came back. He helped me push it off the road and then took me about a mile down to a gas station so I could call a wrecker. Said a lot about that guy for him to come back for me and I've never forgotten it. One good turn deserves another in my book.

Thats awesome man. I didn't know that killing a civic was so easy. The kid sounds like he learned his lesson with screwing with us dakotas! hahaha
Thats all I've ever owned until this truck. Better than a cheby though.

The civic probably woulda had me after seein what was under his hood. It was setup right. (except for the weak block) Wasn't typical rice. Somebody had sunk some money into it. Mighta been a better race if I had the 3.92 lsd instead of this 3.55 one legged wonder. I can't get traction for crap. Punch it and it does a magnificent one tire burn out while the other just sits there.

I didn't you that you didn't have LSD. That is supposed to be an easy install. Now the gears are another issue. I'd say don't worry about the gears quite yet.... but DO go for that LSD... It's a saint!

Nope no LSD yet. If I could find it somewhere I would buy it but nobody's been able to tell me where to get it.
