Eww, New star wars should be banned.

I love the color, best color you can get an EK coupe/sedan in in my opinion.

A few things to note:

Newer hondas keep getting cheaper dead pedals, look at that dinky thing!
Your knob is so ugly, doesn't look like it has good feel, does it?
That cluster is also superfugly with no tach. Stick a teggy cluster in there or just get an ex/si cluster if you like the random blue accent crap on the EK clusters.

When's your first fill up going to be?

you're looking at the first fill up. Subtract 45 miles from the trip meter. The car had 45 miles on the trip when I refueled it. I forgot to press the trip. This tank should be ~400 miles. I still suck at the clutch.

Ah, so still no gas in there. Don't worry, you're doing pretty good. It took me a long time to get condifident with my driving, you'll be a lot faster though since you have no alternative and the car you're starting out on is pretty nice about not getting jerky if you're not perfect with it.

Still say the 90-93 accord knob is the hawtness.

That's where you're wrong. The car jerks really hard if you don't go into first right. I drove some other 96-00 civics and they never jerked like that. This car is a real jerker.

Also I don't need a tach. I know exactly what rpm I'm at by my gear and speed.

SVOboy 08-02-2006 09:29 PM

That's true but when I didn't have a speedo I knew where I was but the math got to my head an made me insecure. Going into first is always gonna be jerky if you're messy with it and you have a decent clutch, so I guess that's a good sign, :p

You're not going to be able to do any redline runs anymore with no tachometer, :(

6800rpm redline
1st gear 39mph
2nd gear 72mph
3rd gear 109mph
4th gear 140mph
5th gear 182mph

Why even need a tach when I'm focused on fuel economy.

SVOboy 08-02-2006 09:45 PM

Eh, I find my tach extremely helpful, it may not be for you since it really is superfluous, just noting that I'd not go without it.

You want to buy this tall transmission off me? 20% increase in FE!

I can't, I don't have time to do any swaps or the know how. But I definetly want a taller transmission. My 1st is so short 50% of the time I'm spinning tires.
