Its great when people underestimate Hondas, You get so many people revving up 1.1s against you on the lights thinking they have a chance ;)

shift just before the limit (8200 incase some aren´t sure) for me, unless i´m on coombe were i either over revved or dropped here down into 2nd and saw 9k, only a couple of times tho, much to my amusement when i looked across to see either alec, edd, my brother or my mates face as were 10meters from a corner at 80mph 9k in 2nd hahaha sounds fuckin awsome tho 8-|

I think the best was when I borrow my dads 4.2 v8 Rangie and had a 1.2 Corsa revving his engine at me at the lights with his 'bad boi' exhaust and 12 year old girlfriend. I just knocked the Rangie into neutral and give it a few revs. The v8's have that much torque the whole car sways from side to side when you rev it and the noise is amazing.

The look on the chavs face was fucking priceless! He even tried to burn me off the lights then! His POS car got burnt off by 3 tonne of scrap!
