    Grizz, do you read Super Street? You are like the 5th person I've seen on this website with their slogan as a sig.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. One of the reasons why people in Japan buy Hondas is becuz of their high hp/L ratio. In Japan, many races are categorized by displacement. Like 1600c.c class, 1800c.c class, 2000c.c class, etc. And if ur car has high hp/L ratio, u will be more likely to win, of course, u need skills, too. For instance, if u go race in the 2000c.c category, and u drive a chevy cavalier (2L engine with 115hp), and I drive a Honda civic sir (which has 1800 c.c, but it's still allowed) with 160hp. That's 45 more hp. So that's the reason why civics are so popular in Japan.<!-- Signature -->

And the Cavalier never was meant to be Raced at all, whereas the Civic has evolved into a Racer (Si). The Civic would Kill the Cavalier.<!-- Signature -->

    No a Mustang is just a car that has more power and goes faster stock. A rocket ship would be the Sledgehammer Corvette, which it goes fast enough to be anyway.<!-- Signature -->

    94 ford mustang gt 5.0 V8 = 215 hp and 285 ft. lbs. with a 0-60 of 6.7 a 15.2 1/4 mile, shitty handling bad gas milage and a 17,000 price. The integra type R may cost almost 25,000 dollars, and only have 195 hp and 130 ft. lbs, but it would roast a mustang 5.0 and shit on it with its left over gas and tires.<!-- Signature -->
