    LOL!! You assume so much.. I actually do like Hondas, I actually owned a 95 SI before I had to sell it to pay for legal fees.. I have seen and helped with my share of incredibly fast Hondas including 'all-motor' 11 second cars and I give them hella credit cause that takes a LOT of tuning and a lot of cash to go that fast without FI on such a tiny engine... but where I'm at, there is no challenge to be had by any NA Honda whether is a stock B16A or a CRVTEC frankenstein... dont hate on someone you know nothing about

    Nah, actually Im about 4 hours north of LA near Mammoth... closest drag strip is Inyo/Kern Drag Strip (FWD hell... traction blows, elevation is high)... elevation up here is a little above 4000.. like 4102.. but FWD 4cyl cars that run low to mid 11s closer to sea level(Hondas mostly) rarely see anything under mid-14s.. due to elevation and traction issues.

    I'm gonna have to agree with you on that most honda drivers like to show off until a bigger fish comes along. lol.

    I ought to know. I owned a civic hatch a few years ago. They're great cars for doing flybys and all, but they simply suck at racing unless you swap an engine or add a bigA$$ turbo.

    They're just down on power, but don't hate on every honda owner because of it. Everybody wants to feel cool when they're driving. It's just the american way.

    Just imagine if you were riding along in your rex and a saleen s7 pulled alongside you. What would you do? One thing is for certain, it definitely wouldn't be a race.

    well when i owned my honda, and my friends have them. they bought em with the sole purpose of taking out the puny pos engine and swapping the motors. then building them up. stock hondas yes they are slow. cept for nsx and the itr has superior handling. i miss my honda everyone used too try and race me and i would smote them cause they thought i was juss a slow econo sohc civic.(i loved the look on there faces after) in the wrx no one ever wants to race

    What is a Civic anyway?

    Honda tells me two different things...first, it's the car girls drive when they don't really know sh#t about cars and instead think about fat squirrels.

    Then they tell me "honda nation represent" and have all these modded civics.

    So can someone weigh in? I got a rex. I know what my car is.

    I think the original complaint was that the honda guys that he tried to race are all show and no go. I personally think that is annoying, but to each their own.

    It seems to me that there are many hondas around with a lot of plastic stuff attached to the exterior. I think that is what some complain about and where the honda bashing comes from.
