    It'd be safer to just play him a game of poker. You could lose more than $100 if you race on the streets. Even if it will be in a relatively open area with no one around.

    ditch the 18s for some light weight 15s or smaller (id go 13s) with some drag radials, then practice your launching and youll have a chance

    those 18s will kill you

    id wait. purchase some new lighter rims, get some decent tires (hint hint, azenis are not good drag tires), practice for a month or so.... then race him.

    if you need to come here and ask then you should def not race for money

    you will probably loose
    doesn;t sound like you car is set for drag too well

    slicks should improve your time a great deal, as well as ripping your seats out...
    less than 1/4 tank of gas will help some as well

    ditch the 18's for spares in the rear and slicks up front

    you should have him off the line but if he winds till 10K then thats a huge powerband for you to compete with...

    well i have sparco seats and its a crx so what other seats do i pull out... i agree
    completely on the rims..that was my main concern....also that 10k rpm.... i have raced a couple of cars and beat them ..mr2(n/a), a cuple of hb one w/ a b16 and another with a b18a/b but i think his hb will give me a run for my $$$.. the reason i ask is because i like to look at the opinions of other enthusiast....thats what the forums are for....right? i do apreciate the comments though :D

    it will make a slight difference... but if hes winding out to 10k, he WONT fall out of vtec on the shift even with the ls tranny. he will just be slower right off the line in 1st gear- then, wave.

    you won't win on those 18s. He is probably actually also making power at 10k with those spoon cams. He will eat you up.
