Icon9 I dont know what to do anymore, keep the lude or sell it? :-\

I dont know what to do with my prelude i mean its mint condition I love it its just that at one point I had the fastest car, and now everyone else got better cars or upgraded them and now I loose to everything, lost to a 300zx stock no turbo by 1 legnth, lost to a 91 civic with a B16 swap by 2 lengths, lost to a Sentra Spec V by 2 and a half lengths, and cant race my boys 95 dodge neon cuz from the slowest 150HP motor he became the fastest, he spent 800 for the car and 300 for an srt-4 turbo set up from his friend and is boostin 8 pounds and beats everyone even my other frind who I cant beat he gotta 03 mustang GT, and my only friend I used to beat his 3rd gen eclipse he sold it and got an 06 WRX, I even lost to an RSX Type-S by 3 lengths, Im really thinking of seelin it and gettin myself a WRX and just make monthly payments cuz I aint got any money to do up my Lude and dont think if would be worth all the money and time it would take when I could by a stock turbos all wheel drive car, Im so disappointed in the Lude its bringin down my confidence soooo much Im actually getting depressed over it...

dude look at it this way, you're thinking about paying 20k or more on a WRX which one of your friends already has when you could put 5k into your lude and put them to shame... is your car a auto or manual, because a couple of those races could be driver error like the 300zx unless he has juice, and the B16 swapped EF unless it it a compleatly gutted hatch, i can understand the spec V and the type S

i don't know man, some of those you shouldn't be losing (especially in relation to the spec v)

but put some money into the car and kill em; use that same money that you would use to get a faster car plus you will most likely have alot mo' money left over!

...at least you don't have the ugliest car! lol

No offense, but i beat a Civic with a b16 swap, not once, but a few times in my 3rd gen.

Learn how to launch, learn how how to shift...you wont lose to a Spec V, or a Civic, or a Neon.

Please!!!!!!!!!!!

im gonna guess hes not a good driver. you should be able to rip apart an auto 300zx.. even off the line if you knew how to launch. in my auto h22, i stayed right next to a b16 hatch. not sure what hatch or what b16 it was, but i stayed right next to him from 50-90. so if i can do that, im sure a 5spd could do it better.

I was in the same situation, Constantine. I held the title of the fastest car in our group for 2 years till my buddy got a subie and now I haven't won a race in a long while. My group now consists of rx7, boosted integras (type-r pushing 17 psi stock motor), boosted mr2 modded, and so forth. All these cars have neukin manifolds and are running 13's or better. Which is why I boosted my lude. I also lost to a girl in a 240sx last summer, so my goal is to beat her this year lol. In your case, you could just throw on a JRSC and hondata s300 and you'll be set for a good while.
