If you take it to 10K, you don't even have to use the clutch. Just a little force on the shifter and BAM you're in gear and on your way. If you don't get to 10K the first time though, just keep trying. Persistence pays!

Re: I'm a new prelude owner

Are you really that ignorant that you can't tell they're making fun of you?

Are you 'racing' on a track?

If not, stop trying to race a stock car. Period.

People like you give Honda owners a bad name.

hey my man, these ppl arent helping u trust me, put it in neutral n basically floor it then when you get to about 7k on the dash drop it into first and it should take you to 10k but just shift into 2nd (you dont need the clutch just shift it) once you are at about 9600.
