top speed for 1/4 mile?? i had a top speed total which was 130 on my 96' accord

a manual would run somewhere around 18-17 (v6) i think...

a V6 manual coupe should run at least in the low 16s, if not alot better...ive seen auto sedans run in the 17s...

I haven't had a good reason to go to the track yet. I know I'd run approx. a 16.1 to 16.3.

i wouldnt be surprised to see a V6 accord coupe with a manual trans, and a good driver get into the 15s...especially if it is modded at all...my car is only an auto and i ran 16.1
