    well today the guy who bought my del sol called
    http://www.hondaswap.com/~pills/thesetup.html

    he came by to pick up a spare b16 block and LS head i had laying around...
    we got to talking and he ran the car w/ the 21 lb mille miglia bling wheels and kum-ho tires and ran a 13.9

    my best was a 14.2 @ 100... i forgot what he said the trap was.. but it wasn't much higher... this was with the identical setup and the same program that i wrote for the ecu...

    he also has some crazy plans for it too.. he just bought a dart bare head and ITB's and is basically re-doing the whole thing...

    its cool to see where your car goes after you have it...

    i bet the lady who i bought it from would be like WTF did you do to my car!>? lol

    Nice to know that some ricer didn't buy your car. Sounds like he has some cool plans.

    I have the original manual that came with my 1986 Civic, and it has the first owners name and address in it. I'd love to be able to track them down and show them the car after I'm done with it. :D

    the guy i got my rex from riced the shit out of it. I got it painted it, put 18'' wheels and a new motor. I would have loved to show him what a real clean import looks like. If i can find the pics i'll post them up.

    Hmm. Maybe his big wheels just let him launch at a higher RPM without spinning, and net him a faster launch time... interesting that more massive wheels might actually help him out in this case. :eek:

    larger rims might help on the launch but in the long run will only slow him down ( rotating mass theory)!
