use power frm 3rd and 4rth gear,,
well ,,4rth might get too fast, but 3rd gear is enjoyable on freeway.
dont rev hard on 1st and start of 2nd, trying to smoke a car with less power,, because you cant ,, both cars spin wheels on local roads. this is wasting power
try not to race with new corolla or civic,, you driving a seperate twin cams engine, and they are on single cam and sissor cam, so show some respect to others,
low end power in single cam is pretty good,, both cars will waste fuel spinning wheels and get nowhere at launch..
so keep yr launch padel soft if you want to keep yr engine and tyres,, its pretty hot weather and 20v engines dont like too hot temp.
wait for winter, your car will be more responsive on gentle touch of padel.
look for coilovers suspension, that will help in smoother launch power.
do tune up yr rear brakes, you dont want tailing out at braking.
