Funny I like Hondas I just don't like that many honda owners.

If you've never owned more than 4 cars in you're life.....dont talk to me.

Re: Honda haters?

I agree with racingbreed, the problem with hondas started with "The fast and the Furious" it made the drivers little pricks. They have this obsession with Folgers can exhausts and carbon fiber steering wheels. In turn they sit there and knock you down for not doing up your car the way the movie said to and race around thinking they're professional drivers. Now, I like the old honda Preludes I think they are quick for what they were originally made for but I like "muscle cars" more. Everyone who says that ricers are better and faster etc.... don't take into account that they also weigh 1/4 of what a "muscle car" weighs. Today fiber glass and plastic make up about 65% of the car, import or domestic. back in the day only a few cars were made of these materials, i.e. Corvette and the Shelby cobra. Honda's are good long lasting commuter cars that have potential to be brought up to racing class. Same goes for all the old Chevy's, Pontiacs, Mopars etc... it's all the same but a whole lot smaller now.

Re: Honda haters?

I have respect for any can that can talk the shit and walk it but it is the hondas who r dx coupes that have intake and rims and think that they r the sh*t that pisses me off. It is those guys who give honda owners a bad rep.

i have the same problem in my town. there is a tricked out eclipse with the rims carbon fiber hood and great decal job along with paint and body kit. About 5 grand worth of stuff on the body, But it was taken on the strip by a stock SVT Ford Contour. i have nothing against somebody who can walk as well as talk, but for those retards who trick out the body but yet can barely pump their own gas let alone install a turbo kit system GIVE IT UP!!!!!!! just because you guys look stupid dont mean u gotta act like it

in my city its kinda diff, most people around here know what there doing with there honda's, i've been in a few hard races with some integra's and one civic hatch. these guys look pretty and they back there looks along with it, maybe not running 12's but low 14's and high 13's is respectable from a honda civic, let alone there are some 12's around.
and as for the dumb guys with a can and rims, i like em, they give me something to laugh at.

I just revisited this thread, and I couldnt help but laugh my ass off at this post again....what a troll...

with FWD the power to the car goes to the front wheels, therefore inhibiting the steering on the road. it ok for straight shots, and it or 4WD is always a must in places where winter happens. RWD is ideal for better steering response because your front tires are not under so much stress when turning and accellerating at once. i think both can be good, it just depends on your reasons for having one or the other. however FWD cars are more known for less power at the wheels, and are typically smaller than RWD

Re: Honda haters?

You could say I'm more of a domestic guy, but I don't hate Hondas. The only Honda car I would build would be a hybrid hatch, though. What I do hate is cocky and disrepectful drivers. I can't stand the sore loser that does a flyby, and puts the hazards on after you beat him. I also hate it when you get beat and the other guy goes on and on about how slow your ride is. Sh*t, if you really are a car enthusiast, you would be helping other people out instead of bashing their ride. I think tuning an LS1 to run low 11 is cool, but I think tuning an integra to run a 13 can be equally cool.

Re: Honda haters?

i have never really liked hondas. cuz most of the hondas i see here (kansas city metro) are jus eye candy and have no speed. i have beaten a couple hondas with body kits on and i have an oldsmobile. i am getting a 300zx soon and cant wait to beat all the hondas. there are a couple hondas i admire (prelude and S2000), but i dont like the majority of them.

I hate kids that go "all show, no go" and then think they are fast. I don't care if its a import or domestic. Luckily we don't have that problem out here in corn country. Very hard for a kid to make money and most kids just put a system in their car, very little performance modding goes on and just as little "ricing".....Except this damn avenger with fake plastic hood scoops, wheels, a window banner, and nothing else and this kid acts like hes got a ferrari.

well thanks to me there's a lot of car doors laying around in the streets that belong to ricers, i put them in there place while most people with fast cars don't even bother to race them i do it to show them just how slow there cars are. my girlfriend tells me all the time "pic on somebody your own horsepower" but i let them know that they are slow as hell.
