    So how do you all think a civic with over 400whp would do against a stock sti? I hate when people with civics and lots of whp think they are the shiznats!

    Said Civic would *deleted* fist rape the stock STI. While they may not have the greatest traction, the Civic will pull on the STI like crazy once it connects.

    your kidding right? the only chance ever is to race the civic from a stop on street tires. and stop racing at 60. cause after that it'll blow by the sti like it was parked. 400whp with traction is low 11s @125 in most of lighter weight hondas.

    Thats Alot of hp for a honda... or course he will spank you. They weigh like 2500lbs.... even a 400whp sti would need a good driver and need to go from a stop to win. Hondas are no joke, there is a silver one that looks stock around here but its REDICULOUS, prolly a high 10 sec car.

    The first 1/8mi give or take

    Despite the FWD traction, they can be crazy quick given their power to weight ratio.

    Don't get me wrong, I am in no way hating on honda's! Heck...I may have a project in the future...it seems like it would be easier to make a big power project with a civic! As long as I do it right and tastefully!

    I would love to get ahold of a prelude and make it fast! I always liked the preludes the best out of the honda's.
