Well today did something I've never done before and with a poorly car as well i attended RaceWars! :bigthumb:

i got vouched for by a friend who has been before to get the invite etc
An awesome day out, loads of awesome cars showed up 98% Jap but a few other cars aswell.

Its not quite a quarter mile, a blast down a runway-round a cone and back again.
Ive never really done launch starts and all day i couldn't really get my power down at the start but had a enough to bring it back in the end...
(most times :D)

anyway i have LOADS of videos and pictures from the day which i will start to upload,
but this ones pretty good as its against a very common foe of ours..

mate it really was!
to be honest pretty much all the evo's and scoobys ran wild as you just can't beat them off the line.
However IF the runway was say another 100 yards you'd get a bit longer to grab them etc
so it all came down to taking on other rwd and even the fwd hondas were rapid!
When I'm at work tomorrow i'll upload the rest of the clips :bigthumb:

yeah I'm pretty sure its apparently got built in launch control and a rev capper?
is that what you would call it so it doesn't redline etc

yeah i could get the same sorta effect with what i was doing..
i think my problem was you never really got your tyres warm enough without doing crazy burnouts i suppose which i didn't want to do and i just kept wheel spinning even when i tried to be more gentle once the boost kicked in it broke traction etc

yeah apparently the CRX was what they were all banging on about last time delt with everyone etc so happy i just snuk in front :D
id say even with getting beat off the line every time then coming back i won more than i lost, but you just couldn't match off the mark the 4x4s

the crx was naturally aspirated i think but had high lift cams and too much engine work sounded gorgeous
my clutch is a competition clutch Rich put in to handle my setup not to sure which one, but one for 500 +
