That's right! I spanked a Nova last night on my way home. This guy was 'cruising' on the waterfront last night.It's winter, and dark at 5pm here, we were the only 2 cars on the road in this area. Normally packed with people in nice weather. He was out for kicks, I just wanted to get home. Guy was running like 10 under the limit for 3 straight miles in a no passing area:sterb: . We go up on to a bridge, I get over to the right and just roll right by. I'll be dipped ,as this fool goes WOT cause I passed him. He caught up to me at about 50 mph then I unleashed the 4.6. Pulled on him rather quickly, by the 100 shut down I had about5 cars on him. LOSER!!!!!

Way too funny. I've heard more than a couple folks "VTEC this, VTEC that". Nice to see that yours works better than his. :winks Point your friend to this web page:

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/frame...l=http://www.leecao.com/honda/vtec/index.html

Specifically direct him to the VTEC Misconceptions section. A partial quote is below:

"VTEC engines, on the other hand, have very smooth gradually rising torque curves. The initial wheel spin, therefore, is harder to achive. And after the initial wheel spin gets going, the level torque curve means that very precise clutch and gas pedal control is needed to allow the drive wheels to regain traction while maintaining maximum acceleration. This is why VTEC engines are more difficult to launch off the line than large displacement muscle car engines. "

"VTEC only works in high RPMs, therefore a VTEC car is just like a non-VTEC car at low RPMs."

Good kill Tony.
If all the ricers would go out and get novas, we'd have a much cooler car scene - except they'd probably just show up with late '80s novas, the fools.
