    i went back to that thread and took a closer look at his mods....BS!!!! he couldn't even run 13's with that setup, even with his "nawwws" that wouldn't get at 17sec kia that much faster, plus all the exhaust work he had done to his car probly didnt even add that much hp, especialy with a NA engine. i can't believe how many ppl BS on these sites. thankfully, i can rest assured that most of the posts on clubwrx are legit, and 12sec subies really are 12 sec subies

    You guys are really retarded, sometimes I wonder how old the average age is in this forum.
    Every car serves its purpose. Just because YOUR car is more expensive, that doesn't mean everything BELOW your car is POS. With your mentality, those Ferrari and Porsche owners are probably laughing at how big a piece of crap the wrx is.
    Any car can be made to go fast. There are plenty of Yugo, foxbody mustang, escorts that run 11 second quarters.
    I believe there are 11 second Kias out there. Hell.. with enough money, You can make a 11 second moped.

    did you even read that thread? he claimed a 12 second kia with (to my knowledge), very few mods that are enough to bring a 17 second car down that much. i am in NO way knocking kias, i agree its all relative as to the purpose of a car, but i do think that you gotta be stretching the truth a bit when someone says their kia is 12sec with "nawws", new headers, exhaust, and bigger injectors. that would bring a wrx into the 12s...maybe, but on a NA kia, NO. so i don't think I nor anyone else is being "retarded". and i'd appreciate if you not insult anyone on this forum unless you have a more justifiable claim - be nice, smile this is a nice forum, and we're all on the same side here. im sure there are 11 second kias - hell, some of the fastest import drag cars are hondas, which start out stock as 16 second cars, so im not denying that a car could go that fast. now, lets look at the possibilities:
    1.) 2001S4 is right and they guy lied about his mods - that just takes away the credibility of those "12 second kias"
    2.) we're all just relying on the mods the guy posted. if there were other modifications done to the car, then of course i'll reassess the situation.

    so don't go insulting the people on this forum. who cares what the average age is - if you're smart and mature, then it shouldn't matter. r*cers i see in houston are mostly 20+ year olds anyway, so of course it varies

    Now this is how I look at it,

    Kias, and all different car people will have their glory days and have bad days. Now I am not saying that kias are bad, I believe that I should say anything, but this is a happy story for a dude, that drives a kia. And yes, kia drivers that like to race will have other glory days and have bad days where they will lose bad to badly.



    Same goes for other drivers, that favor their car, and including WRXs. I myself favor the wrx. We will have our glory days and bad days, its just how it is. So, let us get away from this negative, ways (heh) and move on, talk about the good things that we all have happened to us on the road.

    Don't call people names, it is just not nice, and shows more of your own intelligent.
    12sec Kiaz? I don't think our cars can get into 12.2 with simlar mods on our car.

    If you read the posts, pretty much every one else on that forum called BS to his comments. They didn't appreciate him making false claims on THEIR sight. They didn't want themselves or others to loose respect for the forum. I highly respect that attitude and believe it is one that is expressed here at clubwrx.
    I agree, every car serves its purpose and shouldn't be made fun of (obviously there are always exceptions). Many of those Kia owners would die to own a WRX and highly respect us. Just like many of us respect cars that we desire but cannot afford. And I'm sure some are laughing at our wimpy 320hp, 12sec qtr WRX's. It's all about perspective....

    you know this is what i dislike about this site. i'm not saying you beat a wrx in a real race(which i doubt), but when you post it on here you kinda take away from the validity of the site. 0/10 people will believe a kia with bolt ons will be a wrx. and those 10 people come on here and talk crap about us being a bunch of rice liars.

    No I read his post. I was talking about him down playing other people's cars. Not if the story was true or not.

    Kias rank up there in the same class as Honda Civics

    2001S4, tell me you want to take that comment back before i post some seriously embarrassing information. the fact taht you own an S4 does NOT make you an automobile buff or expert. this just proves it.




    short of 10Grand in mods, a kia is not going near any mildly modded rex or honda. so what does that say? it says if i put 1-Grand into a goddamned Chevette it would go fast. big F&cking deal.

    You are a moderator and you post such trash? The point being that a Honda Civic and pretty much the whole Kia line are in the same class, economy car. If you fail to see that point, than not only are YOU not a car enthusiast, but you are also a very unintelligent person. As far as the owning an S4 not making me an Auto buff, ***** YOU. I never said anything about owning an S4 making me any kind of expert. What I do know is I not only love cars, but I somewhat study all the cars in just about all car makes lineup. I am dumbfounded as to how you became a moderator of this site with comments like that. I certainly hope some other moderators are reading this and pick up on your negative comments and put a stop to it. And once again, to show your automobile knowledge, how are kias and civics not in the same class?

    kias are the same type of car as a civic . i.e., they are both compact cars. other that, honda beats the kia in just about every aspect but price. and i might even venture to go there ,but im not sure how much hondas vs. kias cost. also, kia crash test ratings are CRAP compared to honda's.

    Honda is a lot more expensive that is for sure. You can't expect to have a car that has Kia's price range and honda's reliability at the same time. You buy a Honda for that reason, the same goes with Kia.
