Hmm? Let me analyze this:

we were at the light
- stopped I presume
- he would be in first gear

we took off
- light turns green
- he takes off in first
- shifts to 2nd
- and so on

then he downshifted
- he was not racing you
- he realized you were trying to race him
- he downshifted to race
- he spanked you

Street racing is stupid.
This is not a win.
You changed your story twice.
You won, then you lost, then you won.
WTF?

no no no, we were at the light, both of us stopped, the light turn green, we take off(racing) i take an advantage of 1 car length from him for about 1/4 of the race, he then downshifts, to catch up 2 me, and passes me by half a car length(then he upshifts back) when he does this, i catch up 2 him(still racing) AND PASS HIM ONCE MORE TO TAKE THE WIN!!!

i am sorry i am a little stupid but i have to ask this...

when racing why downshift if you were not already driving...


what i mean is if i stop at a light and i have my 5 soeed and i am ready to race...
i am going to redline every gear so whats the point of down shifting if you already got all out of every gear?


I thought you only down shift if you are already doing like 40 and someone zooms by you and you want to catch up///

thats the thing that bugs me about your story. have you ever driven a 5 speed? if you are hitting redline in 3rd (just an example) and you down shift to 2nd, you will hit the rev limiter at about 10k rpm and slow you down(while jerking like crazy) really quick.

i've driven a six speed, but i see what u mean, the story does seem odd, but how do u explain me beating him by a car length and then him passing me up by half a car length and then me catching up and passing him by again......and i know he was trying to catch up 2 me.....couldnt of been nitrious..could it? sure didnt hear it..............................by the way, i really dont mean to sound like a dick when i say shit like this or nothing, i guess what i'm saying is that IN MY OPINION if a car has 125HP as base(manual) with an intake and exhaust and the other car has 115 base(auto) with same mods....... the manual car should have a HUGE advantage in this race, but in my case he didnt, his car might of not been tuned....iono, i just thought it was cool. didnt mean to flame manuals over autos...i was just referring to this race and only this race..

Its not so much on horsepower but a lot of other factors contribute to it, such as power to weight ratio.

well put it like this, say you two were at a drag strip manual and auto and you take off. No one at all is gonna down shift, ask anyone whos been to the strip. but there is one way this can happen and the only way i thought of it is like this.......he takes off and shifts at like 3500 rpm(so obviously he didnt get it all out on that gear) so when he was racing you, he realized that he doesnt know how to race a manual so then he had to get his power back from the downshift.....problem solved- the guy your racing doesnt know how to shift correctly

Thumbs up

guess he was experimenting? more like guess he was losing would have been a nice race if both of you were redlining or in your case just flooring it but if he downshifted and killed you then god knows what he would do if he shifted correctly...damn hondas

confused......maybe you don't know this, but i'm just wondering what gear did the civic started? third gear then downshifted to second? auto tranny downshifts too when you floor that thing. i agree, odd and kinda funny.........

well, i'm not mechanical genious or nothing and i'm not to sure how transmissions work.................all i know is that we took off from a light, i got the jump for about 100 feet(beating him by a car length) he then catches up and passes me by half a car length, then i pass him up and as soon as i pass him up..........he slows down, so i say 'what the f*ck" and stop too, we were only going at about 75mph...........
