Lord knows I've beaten a Prelude from a roll and I have less mod's than you and am only a year newer. I'd be confident about it this time with your mods.

doesn't something seem wrong here?? A base 3k versus a prelude. And the lude walking away form the 3k during 4th gear. Preludes don't have that high end power that would be needed to walk away from a car in 4th gear. You sure he's not modded more than he tells you?

What?I have driven both Prelude VTEC and 94 Base 3000 GT.
Your car shouldn't loose like that to a Prelude.Your 4th gear
should go about 135-140mph,and that is the strong spot for
our engine againts the Prelude.We got more HP,torque and displacement.

If your car is healthy,you shouldn't loose.Maybe it needs some
tuning?Good luck and keep it safe...:)

Yeah I must say that you should have pulled away pretty nicely over 115mph. Weight does not play a advantage at those speeds as much as it does from a start.;)

I have a 91 non-VTEC lude and my top speed is 130mph with no mods... if he has a newer 99 lude? and pulled on you in 4th gear im gussing it was the beginign of 4th? Seems like you should have cought up and out ran him in the end.

I had a 97 Type S Prelude... and it pulls harder in 3rd and 4th gear. If you have any type of skill at all you should of pulled ahead of him in first and second and been able to keep that lead.
