Car:
Now this was the latest generation Prelude w/ body kit.
Monster tach and possibly vtec controller
I'm in Altima, i/e.

Conditions
Going slightly uphill.
He dropped first at idle rpm or slightly above.
I torque brake to about 1500

We are at a redlight, I notice his car roll back and he gives a little rev and creeps forward. So I torque brake about 1500.
The light turns and I get the jump and he is at my back bumper.
I didn't pay attention to the speed maybe 40 (whenever auto Alt shifts to 2nd) I had the lead, I hear him chirp 2nd and I notice he starts pulling on me, and then passes, and he gets ahead by maybe a car length.

Disclaimer
I'm not saying I can beat a Prelude because if I was in the Lude I would have dropped clutch at about 2500 not off idle. But I was surprised that it was so close. Even though I give the Lude credit because he came from behind and passed.

Moral of the story
It is not always about the car, but also the driver

Real story: You NEVER know what is going in a street race. Maybe the other guy was thinking about the many points on his license and backed off? Maybe he was aware that the area you raced was a cop hang out? Maybe he was just playing, the point is; if you are not lined up at a real drag strip or on an auto x course then you don't know if the other driver is really racing.

Take care.

Like I said I don't think I would beat a Lude in all circumstances
U might want to read the post again or read this part.......

THEKVJ,

Good race. How did you know he had VTEC controller?

That thing in stick form would have smoked even your Accord if driven optimally.

I don't know how you can call that a kill but good race nevertheless. I am also curious as how you knew he had a vtec controller(apexi/fields???). And if had a good launch(yes your right it does depend on driver) he would have had you at the end of first gear.

That is a nice Lude (lets race Accord V6)
Yeah your right, he didn't have a good launch, but I thought he would have still pulled quicker, I had him to about 40.

I said possible controller, I didn't get a chance to get a good look but his car is always at this shop (Concept Racing), so I'll find out and let u know whats up, trust me I want to know myself but I'm pretty sure.

The big problem I have with this story is , that Prelude should have been well into 2nd by the time the Auto Altima hit 2nd , Even on my 5 spd. the Hondas hit 2nd way before I do , thats usualy where I get them , when they shift to 3rd I am right at peak power in 2nd so I pull them .....

Shawn you maybe right I don't know what gear he kicked into but I figured he chirped 2nd because I don't know if he could have chirped 3rd but maybe. I didn't pay attn to what gear he was in, I was to busy looking at my tach and amazed that I got a jump like that.
