    lets put it this way seansvette. if you were to race a murcielago in your corvette, you would lose. im sorry, but you would lose. but if you modded your vette all to hell, you could easily win. it would be too powerful for the road, but youd still win on any track id say. wouldnt you then get your kicks from saying you beat a lambo, even though it was stock and you werent?</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    Good point Buzz.

    I think its an accomplishment if you can take a car, and modify to beat a more powerfull and expensive car. However, I can see how the owners of these types of cars (more expensive and powerfull) get kinda pissed when they just got beat by a Civic... I know I would.

    That is so entertaining. To see ricko-swavae in his new shiny V-8 with his hot girlfriend, and a tuned Civic pulls up and challenges him to a race...and the Civic wins, then Ricko is the one who gets all pissed off and personal about it and flips off the driver in the Civic, and talks crap about imports beacause an econobox Civic just whooped his ass. <!-- Signature -->

    If you've never seen a modded Neon you are the lucky one. Imagine the ugliest body kit you've ever seen for a Civic, and then imagine that kit on a Dodge Neon and you have what I see all the time. Where I live there's even a guy who had the nerve to put a body kit on a friggin '89 Taurus! And about the guys with Civics and Adidas at Burger King, believe me when I say it's not just people with domestics. I have (among others) an Impreza coupe that I've modified, and it is currently running about 250-260 at the wheels (i haven't had it checked in a while, and I added soem new stuff). It doesn't have stickers, a wing, and it has only very subtle body effects on the sideboards and the bumpers (looks like what you get from the factory). Whenever I drive it, some idiot in his stupid Civic (or the guy in the Taurus) pulls up and starts revvin his engine like there's no tomorrow. Usually I just let him take off and think he smoked me, but sometimes when they flip me off or do something like that to insult me personally, I just floor it and wait for them at the next light. Then of course they pull up and either ask me how much Nitrous I just used or tell me I'm lucky they weren't "really trying."<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. excellent point, as usual.

    ill drink to that.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. ok the vier was probably stock and had like one wheel...and the civic probably had about 197340 shots of nos...am i correct<!-- Signature -->

    Yeah right! the driver must high or incredibly stupid! how can a stock civic beat a stock viper, it's impossible, like a deer can outrun a cheetah or an 78 year old man outrun a 26 year old fitness trainer. The driver must be high, incredibly stupid or just wanted to lose purposely.<!-- Signature -->

    Cool! But Im assuming that the Civic was NOT stock... Right?<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. If the Civic was stock then I'm guessing the driver of the Viper was 5 years old and Mario Andretti was driving the Civic.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. its not too hard to do that, if you know a bit about hondas

  16. what is the deal with foreign tuners, why spend so much effort trying to make an economical daily driver into a race car?
     
  17. there is more to life than gas mileage!
     
  18. Scooter beats Viper!!!!!
    Remote control car Beats Viper!!!!!!

    Wow I'd rather have these awsome machines over a viper too. They are faster so they are sooo much better.

    Now I will go stick my head a little farther up my ass, so I will be able to get more of these Ideas of wisdom.

    More like one cylinder was running but it was having trouble, that might do it. Or maybe, the ignition was defective so the Viper couldn't even start the engine. Of course, the driver could still push it over the finish line...<!-- Signature -->

    Well, it depends on a lot of things, and I am never "all imports" or "all domestics" (a lot less domestics usually). Sometimes I agree with what someone who is griping about Hondas says, so I join in. Sometimes I agree with what someone who is griping about Fords says, so I join in. If someone makes a valid point, I don't care what they are talking about, I agree.<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. One more thing. Especially when someone is talking about something like a Civic beating a Viper, I can't help but make jokes. I mean it is completely obvious that there is no way in hell the Civic is stock, so I'm just making up ways the Civic could win if it was stock, because even though Vipers handle like my grandma in her Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, they ar still a lot faster than any stock Civic. As I (and you) said, I am open to any valid observations anyone may have, be they about imports or domestics. So give me an opening, and I will make comments. Doesn't matter what it's about.<!-- Signature -->

    I thought the Viper that i drove handled quite nicely, maybe the one you drove had some suspension problems or something....<!-- Signature -->

    Try driving it around Sears Point as fast as NASCAR drivers go there. It handles very poorly, and my friend will now never let me drive his Viper again because I ruined his tires and almost dented the car.<!-- Signature -->
