    There were side bets and the bar gave a prize to the fastest.

    He probably had so much work done to that honda to bust 11s. If the same money were dumped into a b13 Sentra with an sr20de it'd easily pull 10s. Hondas need more HP than many other cars of equal weight doing similar times because they lack greatly in torque. I've been to the races with a buddy in his b13 and every Honda owner has some reason or another why they can't race. They could just come out and say why...their 2000 lb car with 500 HP but just 300 torque can't touch a 2000 lb 500 HP car with 450 torque.

    there are guys here running hondas with over 650hp and then add another 200 double staged in no2 that turn high 9's low 10's all day!Having a bit less torque is beneficial to them being front wheel drive they come out of the hole better with less wheel spin then spray it when rolling to make up for less tourqe !

    A Toyota, Mazda or Nissan (sticking to Jap imports for argument's sake) of equal weight with that same 650 HP and 200 nos shot would decimate with their torque advantage. Plus all high HP fwd drag racers use launch controllers to get that perfect launch. Honda makes great lawnmowers and economy cars, but race car they are not lol. Yes, I'm a hater but have numbers to prove it. World's fastest (not funny car) 4 cylinder is a steel bodied Datsun with an sr20 pulling 6.91 on the quarter. Edit: seems I'm a little behind and a couple other fiberglass body cars have gone a little quicker since, a Mitsubishi and a Ford. But no Hondas.

    Also it takes so much more parts and work to turn a 17 second car into a 10 second car than it does a 14 second car.

    My long time buddy (builder and owner of the northern force car) and I are currently running a 2016 hellcat!It has 840 hp and just over 700 torque and even with an m/t comp at 315 width and launch control it still breaks lose past half track if you dont peddle it! There is a point where you just end up fighting the high torque,so far the only way we can get it to hook well and not spin on shifts is to run a big tire slick and disconnect the electronic suspension to allow more weight tranfer to the rear!

    Yeah after a certain point adding power doesn't help anymore till traction and wind resistance are addressed.

    Skyline 214hp rb20 turbo. honda prelude 2.2 vtir 200hp non turbo not much diff.. Now turbo the honda and see what happens. The Skyline runs hi 14 sec stock. And my sr20 needs 4 times the work and parts to keep up . I run a 11 sec sr20 in a blue bird. Gave up on the sky line after 10k spent on it and blow up. my honda is for. a to b so no mods...... Theres all ways some one faster. Lol

    As for drag bike. No. Normal stock bike yes. Evon puting the seat down wood look more drag. How about tripel tree with clip on bars. Eny thing.

    Stretching the chainstays a half a foot would give it the perfect look.
