You're friend just can't drive that well. It shouldn't make that difference between the old and the new.

It has been proven that the AP2 is faster than the AP1. I think it was car and driver that did an article on the comparison. The AP2 no longer features a 9,000 rpm redline but VTEC hits alot earlier and with the engine bumped up from the 2.0 (AP1) to a 2.2L, it pulls alot harder threw every gear. The gear ratios in the AP2 was also lowered just a bit to give it even more of a kick. I dont doubt that you beat the guy by 4 cars. Not only does he have a slower car than you he was probably a bad driver. A win win situation for you. Its like a 2000 Civic Si trying to race a 2006 Civic Si. Consider yourself lucky you bought a 04' up model S2000

The AP2 is significantly faster than the AP1. More torque throughout the rev range (helps for launches), more power sooner in the rev range (Honda underrated the F22C), and shorter gearing translates to faster acceleration.

It's just a shame that the AP2 doesn't handle as good and isn't as fun to drive IMHO, despite being faster.

I've owned both a AP1 and AP2 and the AP2 is not 4 car lengths faster than a AP1...trust me I know. The AP2 doesn't handle as well??????? Increased tire size plus tweaked suspension = a better handler. Best motoring tested the AP1 vs. AP2 and the AP2 was 1sec faster on the track because of the improved suspension + tires. Yes it might not be as fun and involved to drive.

"With the same horsepower, the '04 car runs similar 0-to-60-mph and quarter-mile times but aces the '03 model in the 30-to-50-mph and 50-to-70-mph top-gear passes, running 8.8 seconds versus 9.9 and 7.9 seconds versus 9.4, respectively. That's quite remarkable, particularly since sixth gear in the new S2000 is actually now two percent higher. (First through fourth are four percent lower, for better acceleration, with fifth just one percent lower.)"

just to clarify i'm not saying you didn't beat your friend, or even that you beat your friend by XX amount of car lenghts. all i'm saying is that the cars from a stand still drag race should be about the same in a perfect race.

That's a clue that perhaps the guy driving the AP1 can't drive . . .
