I was out and about with my friend on the way to pick up the stock rims for the blazer from First Class Auto....

I seen a red honduh crx si...i was in the mood to race, plus i was driving the black SHO....I kept trying to race him for like 3 miles (we never could stop at a light at the same time)...once he figured i wanted to race him he slowed down till we got next to eachother...

He started revvin his fart cannon exaust...and i just looked and smiled...I let him slam on the gas and get about 3 car lengths infront of me before i decided to punch it...next thing you hear is the loud growl from my SHO....i quickly gain on him and in the blink of an eye i passed him.....(we were doing about 90 (well atleast i was) in a 35 zone may i add).... We finally get stoped together at a light, except i was turning right, and he was turning left (kinda sad) but as we were stopped he rolled down and window and said

"Damn, That thing is quick"


I laughed and said, "yeah i guess so" Then i hit the gas a little to chirp the tires....and then he looks over and smiles again then puts his car into neutral, revv's it up, drops into drive and barely chriped them...

Well.... During the "race" when i passed him i was about 8-9 car lengths infront of him, and could have been more, except when ur doing 90 in a 35 where there are usually alot of cops, u get paranoid and slow down...

Anyways, the conclusion of the story is.....I 0wN3d a CRX SI (i thought si's were fast???) and its just another ricer to add onto the list....

Neons (non SRT-4s) are slow. CRX's, however, are pretty quick

Who told you crx's are quick?? Have you ever raced one? [/b]
Yes.

I'm thinking of the little hatchback snots that look like they weigh about 5 pounds. It was a total sleeper, it looked like crap on the outside but the thing flew away.

EDIT: Out of the three times I've raced, that was my loss. I beat an S-10 and a Neon.

a stock CRX si, is only about 108 hp. They are poop. However, these cars are swap ******. You put a B16 engine in one (99 civic si), then it becomes a horrid loud little monster that is quite fast.

My cousin's boyfriend's turbo'ed 10-sec CRX might change your mind
Though for the most part, most of the CRX's that look "fast" on the street don't put up as they advertise. His however looks like a total sleeper, except for the blacked out 15" rims and the 2 inch drop...
