lets see, 93 del slowl S. 1.5 liter probally 100hp. weighing 2300-2400 lbs. 99 dx coupe 1.6 litre 106 hp. weighing 2300-2400 lbs.

This will be a drivers race. The del slowl is not a light weight car, contrary to popular thought.

It would definately be up to the driver, who ever getting the better launch and whoever can shift better. A drivers race, I love it! Good luck to both and make sure that you guys race safe!

Good win...its all a drivers race...i've beaten a 95 EX with my car and whored a 97 200sx SE-R off the line in my slow ass LX...it all depends on the driver. You guys were pretty evenly matched, your car is in fact heavier...
here is data direct from edmunds.com-->

1999 Honda Civic Compact Coupe
2 Dr DX Coupe
Base Number of Cylinders: 4
Base Engine Size: 1.6 liters
Base Engine Type: Inline 4
Horsepower: 106hp @ 6200 rpm

Weight: 2359 lbs.

1993 Honda Civic del Sol Sport Coupe
2 Dr S Coupe
Base Number of Cylinders: 4

Base Engine Type: Inline 4
Horsepower: 102hp @ 5900 rpm

You have more HP, but a little more weight. You guys are pretty much dead even...props to you for pulling away...:D
