yeah, i think he was playing w/ you. you guys probably have the same power, and the nissan weights less.... but his being a stick, i highly doubt you could get any kind of a jump on him, i try to race w/ my friend all the time (he has a brand new RSX base) and for the life of me, i cannot get a jump on him doing anything from neutral-dropping to brake flooring it or anything. he was probably driving normal, saw (or heard, at least) that you were trying to race, downshifted... passed, saw you pass and slowed down, cuz it was a waste of octane

'95 200sx SE = konig divas on 185/60R-14 Kumho 716s, open-airbox, k&n filtercharger, 1.3 bar radiator cap, all red taillights, removed black doorframe vinyl, mesh grill, remote start alarm, no-chrome window frame, sylvania silverstars, optima red top, w/ 4AWG ground, full kenwood sound system.

not playing, trust me

this guy wasnt playing with me.......i know this for a fact, thats all it was, him downshifting so that he doest stay behind me, that was his only way out, to downshift and pass me.....unless he didnt think i was gonna race and i got a take off on him and he tried to play catch up? but we took off at the same time, we were even for about 5 seconds off take off.

Face it dude, you lost, nothing else to it. If he had to downshift to beat you, thats not cheating or anything, its using your engine and its tranny to its advantage. I do that all the time and sometimes i win, sometimes i dont. Utilize what you got.

didnt mean to say cheating(wrong word used on my behalf).......

ok, this thread sucks now, because u guys werent there to see it and its hard to explain, now, i didnt lose because if i did, i wouldnt of posted this thread... the race was a long one, long enough for both us to upshift and long enough for him to downshift and damn long enough for me to catch him back up. end of story

to clear things up, he shifted to early in one of his gears and then when he realized his power loss...he downshifted to grab his power back, as i stated before YOUR engine had to shift everything correctly if you floored it like you said. maybe you won for that stretch but if he was driving that civic shifting every gear at 6500 or whatever he would have beat you no questions asked. can we mark it a tie? this would make him feel a little better.

On page 2 of this thread, about halfway down...you said you have driven a six speed car...i'm assuming a six speed manual because six speed autos are pretty damn rare i believe...

Can you clear this up?
