Yea, it seems strange that most of the posts I see around here complain that "every Honda wants to race me" and now we hear someone complaining that they're not wanting to race. Catch-22 in the world of cars I guess.Originally posted by Integra96
To be fair, you'd be complaining also if every Honda you ran into tried to race. Hey, at least you don't have to waste your gas taking on lawnmowers. It seems as though ricers in your town have a bit of sense when it comes to the competition. It's a very rare day when a modified Honda (even heavily modified) can touch a stock WRX.
Honda drivetrains are nice and smooth, but I think the WRX runs just as well as my car.
Anyway, the statement that "its a very rare day when a modified Honda (even heavily modified) can touch a stock WRX" isn't exactly true. Granted, its a stupid comparison because mod for mod, there's no doubt that a WRX will waste 99% of the Honda's on the road, but I think I would do quite well against a stock WRX...
Obviously, a $40 investment on his/her part would put them out of my league, but still - I hardly would consider my car to be "heavily modified" yet I would do just fine against a stock WRX. He'd/she'd better launch the hell out of the car from a stop is all I can say.
