Just don't put on an obnoxious body kit and fart trumpet and 12 foot spoiler and cover it with gaudy stickers! You still need to spend a mint to get it to go fast, I hear the Honda guys brag about running 10's and 9's even 8's and 7's get real guys! There are 2 Hondas that run 8's and one has been converted to rear drive, as well neither is a real world car just a seat with tube chassis a fiberglass body and a $100,000.00 engine that can only run a race or two and is payed for by a sponsor.
im with you all the way man. i wasnt defending ricers, i was just trying to put things in perspective. it was more an attack on someone saying "turbos and nitrous are cheating"

i drive a honda, im proud of it. its quick, could be quicker, but i know running 12's is a pipe dream. ill be happy to limp down the track in low 15's.

but im just as impressed with a 10 second import as i am with ten second domestic.

What's important to me is the fun to drive factor. Frankly, stock Hondas are not fun to drive. I'm not saying quality is not important, but I won't even take a second look at a car if it's not fun to drive.

It's either inline or flat 5 not V.

Also, Porsche and Subaru are starting to make em too.

Re: Peice Of Junk Hondas

With enough time and effort, Civic's can go just as fast (if not faster) than a domestic V8, V10 or whatever. A buddy of mine has a Civic coupe than runs low 12s in the 1/4 mile and that is his daily driver.

So.. Your saying a Civic can do a 6 second 1/4 mile like a fully modded Hemi can!?

No I don't think so.
