    Heh... that makes me laugh. Well the car i owned before I got my WRX was a 7th Gen Civic. It had NO BALLZ at all. Slowest car I had ever driven. Grant you he is turbo'ed but the safest about of psi is about 8. Anything higher on stock internals would blow the engine to bits. Even from a roll I hightly doubt a 7th gen with just turbo set up could pull on a sti. Well then agian.... stranger things have happend.

    BTW JoeB16 did they boot you out of 7thgencivic forums? Just curious.

    Well as much as I dont want to say it, you never know. Figure a civic weighs what 2900 pounds with driver maybe a little more. An STi weighs ove 3300 with driver. So figure the weight advantage and the fact that it was from a roll and the civic might be telling the truth. Oh well.

    Although I do object to one of their members saying good kill when the STi was ahead.

    I like that you used the word "asshatery". :lol:

    Lately I've been adding -ery to certain words like that. I think it's gonna be the next big thing right up there with foshizzle nizzle or whatever.

    Not that I'm defending some kid who thinks his Civic is fast. Those cars are sleds. BUT, Civics are lighter than 2900 lbs. Edmunds posts them between 2500 - 2600 lbs for a coupe. My coworker uses an older model for autocross and I'm pretty sure it tips the scales less than that. Regardless... his "kill" story is pretty ghey.

    This happens all the time, the civic beat a STI, that is when the owner of the STI is not aware the Civic is racing him.


    LOL

    Not saying the kid is telling truth or not, but you guys are being awefully critical.

    If the civic is 2550 stock, he has CF hood and prolly a spare tire out, so lets figure he is tipping scales at about 2500 or less.
    the STI weighs 3300 with 300hp.

    if that kit produces 200hp, and you figure he has most bolt on's he could be pushing 225hp. 225whp with 2500lbs vs. STI which makes what what? 275whp and weighs 3300 and the race was from a roll where civic shines and sti is weakest.
    i just dont see this as that unbelievable.


    STi has 50whp on the civic, but the civic weighs 800lbs less and they were racing in civic territory. Its very feasible that the civic beat him IMO

    anyone have a counter argument?

    I would love to. Yes the civic is fairly light. CF Hoods rarely do too much, the new Civics have a pretty light hood. Ok if we're going at 2500lbs for the civic and the STi weighs 3260 minus the spare like you said, we'll say 3200.

    STi 3200/275=11.6 The Sti is pulling 11.6lbs per HP.
    Civic 2500/200=12.5 The Civic is pulling 12.5 lbs per HP.

    The STi has a better power to weigh ratio.

    Also if it was a 1st gear punch the Civic I'd imagine would have some trouble with traction. The STi probably wouldn't rape the civic but it should put a couple car links on him.

    guys, we're talking about almost 60HP to the wheels here.

    200 vs 260


    sounds like the Civic guy was the only one racing.
