Was the Prado Engine Running ? I hope it wasnt being toed by some other Vehicle.
I further hope it wasnt parked @ rode side.
Sorry for the above lines, I mean no hard feelings brother but I also have an experience. Way back in 2001 Jan I raced a VTi & I was driving LX-470 (the VTi was brand new then means the previous shape of 1999-2001) but the LX-470 showed itself after 10 secs (pickup was of VTi cuz LX-470 was auto) i.e. the VTi was no where in the rear view mirror.
I agree that the newer shape of Civic is smaller than the 1 I raced & that Prado is 3.4 & I used a 4.7 ltr car, then Prado was also automatic transmission & ur civic was manual BUT still then, civic can go bumper to bumper but not in a lead with Prado.
But we all would like to hear the details
p.s. hey dont u guys think we r going out of the forum topic, this was for mists BUT we should discuss this race in another topic i.e. of Prado VS VTi
