I think my car is bipolar...

A week ago I raced a 2014 Honda Accord 4cyl 185hp stock and of course I won by about 6 car lengths. BBut yesterday when we raced again he won by about half a car. Both times I had traction control off and both of our cars are auto. I check my oil today and it was right below the minimum line so I decided to change it. I use Penzoil's part synthetic high mileage oil. I notice after some spirited driving my car seems to take off slower and sometimes just all around slower. Does anyone know why I may have lost the second race??

Btw, I raced a 2014 Challenger SXT from a 40 roll and won a few weeks back.(@WhosUrBuddie maybe it wasn't a 40 roll but it was a roll and I won on the airstrip so yeah whatever)

2003 G35 Coupe 5at 145,xxx stock

Hooray for 1/4 mile sanctioned racing!

Consider the fact that every time you unplug your battery your car Re-learns how you like to drive. Have you done any recent "tooling?"

Has the Honda Accord done any recent tooling 0.0

And that all around slowness after some spirited driving is most likely engine heat soak. Although considering you're still stock, it shouldn't be that critical versus running a metal CAI. Then again, it is summer.

Let's hope it's at a track. If a Honda beats me, I don't deserve to drive a G. Especially with all the mods I have on my car

Remember you bought the 350 Grand Touring and not the 350 Z folks.

I believe you are correct, only one way to find out.

You are full of BS kiddo. Small planes only need ~2000ft to land/take off and average private strips are around ~2500-3000ft. Which you are not doing a 40 roll on. Also most smaller private strips are not well maintained at all. The ones that are well maintained are not going to rent it out to a bunch of ricers.
Take your street racing Fast & Furious crap somewhere else.
