Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

Discussion in '2000 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Concept' started by dont drink and drive get high and fly home, Apr 4, 2003.

  1. lol this is probably pissing alot of americans offbut hey its been done and it was real close.
     
  2. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Zl1, because I think it looks better and it's street legal.
     
  3. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    i thought it would piss you guys off because most americans can`t see beyond American cars. and yeah i agree this car doesn`t look much like a civic.....i never would have guessed. that woudl be hilarious if it was FWD! lol but no one could be so stupid. i have seen some FWD civic dragsters tho with the big slicks on the front. and by the way this car is street legal
     
  4. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    LOL, I would too, did you laugh at the guy? or inform him of his folly?


    BTW - r u sure it wasn't converted to RWD?
     
  5. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    wel if that civic is a FWD hes a real retard. why would you put a huge wheelie bar on something that can`t pop of the ground?
     
  6. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    No, no, we were referring to another Civic Drag car, not this one.

    7th car down the page.
     
  9. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    mmm i dont think those specs are right. the sheet i found said it had 625hp and a 602ci engine. it didn`t say anything about JDM or mugen parts. and 240 hp is really really really bad for a dragster! so i dunno wut to believe now
     
  10. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Well I'd take the Zl1, but which one? '00 or '02? I'd take both over it.
     
  11. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    You read the wrong description, you read the one on the King Motorsports/Mugen Honda Civic Si. This is the Civic Si Pro Drag Car, I pasted the correct description below. This car we're discussing has a 3.2 litre V-6 NSX engine. not a 602 ci engine.




    "2003 Civic Si Pro Drag Car
    Professional drag racer Adam Saruwatari debuts his all-new 2003 Civic Si Pro Drag Car that will be competing sometime during the 2003 season. Designed to compete in the NHRA Pro-Comp classes, the 2003 Civic Si Pro Drag Car features a tube chassis, rear-wheel-drive and a 1,000+ horsepower 3.2-liter V-6 NSX engine. Last year at SEMA, Saruwatari showed a street version of the Civic Si Pro Drag Car.

    Powertrain Specifications: 1000+ horsepower 3.2-liter Acura NSX V-6, Tial Sport turbo, Motec M880 ECU, G-Force sequential 5-speed transmission, East-West custom adjustable titanium double disc clutch. Suspension Specifications: Hansen Race Cars chassis, Lamb coil-over adjustable suspension, Eibach ERS springs, Enkei drag wheels, Nitto drag slick tires. Exterior Specifications: Hansen Race Cars custom wing, lowered roof line and fully modified body with carbon fiber hood, front clip, doors and rear hatch. Interior: Sparco Seats, Motec ADL Dash, custom carbon fiber and aluminum interior pieces."

    Below are pics that show the two cars, the first one is the one for which you were reading the description of, that's the one with 240hp.

    The second Pic is the 2003 Civic Si Pro Drag Car, the one we're comparing to the ZL1 here.

    Love the sig man.
     
  13. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Um, if you're referring to me, thanks.

    the funny thing about it is the fact that it's true.
     
  14. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    the car "we're" discussing? hello! i started this forum and i`m sticking with the 602ci. wuts the point of a dragster with 240hp?
     
  15. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Yes, the discussion you started, and it's NOT a 602 ci engine with 240hp, it's much better, obviously you didn't read what I posted above, so I'll make it even easier for you. "Powertrain Specifications: 1000+ horsepower 3.2-liter Acura NSX V-6"

    notice how it says 1000+hp with a 3.2 liter Acura NSX V6???

    That's 1000 hp with a HONDA engine

    1000HP, got it?

    1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  16. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    It's really stupid to think that there's comparison possible between those car ! The civic is absolutely not close to be stock (the body maybe ?) but the ZL1 is ,except the engine, really close of the base car ! And don't say that the Civic is street legal because with those huge slick and the wheelies its not legal !

    There's no replacement for Displacement !!!!!!!
    Cubic Inches Rulez !!!
     
  17. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Actually, neither is more stock than the other, They're both Factory Concepts designed for drag racing, so how is the ZL1 more "stock" than the Civic Nitto Dragster?
     
  18. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    its not street legal? sorry my poor misguided friend but those tires are street legal. lots of car around here have them... theres drag racing every summer and the airfield. and most contestants drive there
     
  19. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    It's a pro drag car, I find it difficult to believe that it's street legal, hell, I doubt even the wheelie bar at the back is street legal.
     
  20. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    both cars are street legal in most states and in all of canada <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> great to be a canadian<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> almost anything goes
     
  21. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    This comparison is unfair IMO. Of course the 240hp street Civic can't compete, but the Nitto Pro Drag Civic shouldn't even be considered to compete with a ZL1. For one, it's NOT street legal. It's not even a factory concept. The Civic was built by A&L Racing to compete in the NHRA/IDRC Pro Class circuit and should be running 7's in the 1/4 mile as it's using a similar setup to Adam Saruwatari's Pro Class NSX. As for the tires and the wheelie bar, they aren't street legal. Try driving around in those tires and you'll probably wear them out before the next day hits if you don't kill yourself on the freeway first. As for the ZL1, it IS an actual production vehicle that can be purchased by the general public. Bottom line is the Civic will outperform the ZL1 on a drag strip, but that's what the Civic was built to do; drag race. The ZL1 was built for more than that.
     
  22. Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Hahahahahahahahah....

    Real close??? That civic couldnt even beat 9.55 by a lot with giant slicks, 1000hp, and RWD conversion???
    Ouch.

    Also, that civic is street legal? Maybe if those slicks were grooved but somehow i doubt it. Wheelie bars double as curb feelers?

    Re: Camaro ZL1 vs Honda Civic Si Nitto Dragster

    Umm... ThatŽs a retard comparision.. I mean, what stops me comparing a Funnycar to that Civic or top fuel dragster ?). Stick to "normal" cars, any car can be built fast, if u have enough money. For example, +700hp and +900hp Volvo dragsters. 700hp is with B23 block, and +900p is with B21 wich means 2.1 litres, both are little overbored though. +900hp has 835 Nm/8000 rpm @ 2.65bar and goes 1/4 in 7.76 / 275km/h. Not so bad for familycar engine. What my point is, that any car can be built to go fast, if you have enough money and knowledge..
