Re: Honda are not good cars. Stangs are better

Discussion in '2002 Honda Civic Type-R' started by chevy freak, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. After reading that, it's hard to believe you went to any kind of school. By the way, what is your obcession with "stangs"? Isn't it "Mustang"? Do you hear us saying "My Civ will beat yours." I think you ought to come out of the 93 era to. Do some research...you'll see that Ford no longer puts a 5.0 in their Mustangs. They realized that the bigger it was, the more junk they had to fix and worry about falling apart. It's too bad you can't get in a Civic that's been modified a little bit and experiece the joy of DRIVING, not burnouts and straight shots...

    <b>LOL!! HAHAHAHAHHAAA

    Sorry, this was a big joke. Im sick of reading posts made by people that sound like what I wrote on top. So I finally started writing like them. I see more domestic people coming to the Import forums and posting their B.S., I hardly see Import fans wasting their time going on the Domestic forums and starting sh!t. I used to get mad, now I thinks its funny.
    ODIN, when you said V4 and V6 pussy cars, do you mean the I4?
    And the V6 comment, would that be implying that the Supra TT is a pussy car as well?
    Nice picture btw StreetRodGuru!!
    Its interesting to see the comments that come up..
    I see so many people posting sooo much crap that it makes me laugh. Too many domestic's saying my 1000000hp car can beat your RiceBurner your car has no Torque... blah blah blah blah..
    Just having fun.
    And yes, I would buy a Civic Type-R in a second. They may not be faster than a Mustang, Camaro SS, FireBird, Supra TT, Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari.. but they are fun as hell to drive.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->


    crack me up...ain't it the truth? i think i will go bullshit around in some forum about vettes and see if i can get on their nerves a litte. ~CivicMan~
     
  3. Go CivicMan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  4. Why do people insist on comparing apples to oranges? A Civic and a Mustang are two entirely different vehicles built with entirely different purposes. A Civic is a FWD car built to be fun to drive and be quite reliable. A Mustang has RWD and is therefore more inclined to racing and performance. Now, I am not saying that one cannot build a fast Civic or a slow Mustang, nor the reverse. However, why would someone blow all kinds of money on aftermarket upgrades on a car that will run with say, a Boxter, when the parts that the person paid for and labor and everything total up to costing as much as the Boxter in the first place! For some reason, that makes no sense to me. <!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Heheh. It's pretty simple really. A boxster looks like shit (just like a civic) and the other reason is... a boxster driver is going to think he's the king of the road with his performance, imagine how he's gonna feel having a "mere civic" or a "mere mustang" or some slower car pass him (unbeknownst to him that it has been modified to produce 200 more HP than his boxster).<!-- Signature -->

    That would make the Civic Type R faster than the Integra Type R (RSX) and the S2000 i think you are full of shit. Prove that a stock civic can do that. The fastest stock civic i have seen is low 15's and the fastest stock GT is in the mid 13's. I would have to see it to believe it. (and make it a reputable source)<!-- Signature -->

    Im sorry,
    I didn't mean to sound against Honda's,
    I love Honda's.
    I was just saying that I wish that people would spend more time writing informative messages, instead of the same crap that I have been seeing. Im sick of all this arguing.

    To clear things up a bit.

    I love cars.
    I respect anyone who can make a car go faster. Some people like to make their car look better, or whatever.

    Its all personal taste.

    Here's what Honda's problem is. You have fast cars (cars that look fast and ARE fast), and you have sleepers (cars that don't look fast but kick-azz). I love BOTH. I've posted a link several times to my all-time favorite sleeper www.turbovan.net. It's a beat-up looking minivan that runs 12s. That's fricking cool!

    Then you have Hondas. SO many Hondas that are like ass-backwards sleepers. They LOOK fast, lots of body kits and stickers, big ass exhaust, and CRAP FOR PERFORMANCE! That to me is totally UN-cool. If you're going to drive around in a car that makes a loud visual statement you need to back it up.

    Now I'm sure there are some fast Hondas out there, any car can be made fast. It's just that for every legitimately fast Honda, there's a least 20 that are Sushied out with maybe one or two bolt-on performance mods.

  13. OK, all the people here who don't like Honda's, why the hell are you on a forum devoted to the Civic? Go back to your Cevy and Pontiac forums and leave everyone else the hell alone. If you think Hondas are piles of crap, that's fine, but if you're going to share your opinion, find other people who agree with you, don't come to this forum just to rag on other peoples' taste in cars. I could go to a Firebird forum and list about 20 things about the car that I don't like, but if I did that, I would be a jackass with nothing better to do than insult cars I know practically nothing about. So either shut the f!$k up and say something constructive or go to another forum where everyone else shares your one-sided pessimistic view and talk sh*t about Hondas there.
     
  14. ever race a civic for 400 miles you will lose every time

    odin ur a dumbass.. mazda uses rotary to power its engine
     
  17. ok... lets settle it.
    HONDA = cheap, gas saver, commuter car, LOTS OF POTENTIAL
    STANG = UGLY, SLOW, basicly just suck
    MAZDA = ROTARY, very fast, almost not as reliable as a american car
    VETTE = fast, nice, $$

    spend the same amount of a vette on a honda, and the honda will smoke it. honda is the best. and it cost only like under 10k<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Spend the same amount on a DSM (eclipse, talon, or laser) and it will smoke anything.


    Laser RS AWD
    11.94 @ 119mph
     
  19. For odin:
    Lamborghini didn't die Ferrari died when Lamborghini made MIURA and mostly when Lamborghini made the Diablo and the DiabloSV!!!!!

    I absolutly LOVED my Talon TSi AWD, but i have to say that my Camaro is a bit cheaper to make fast. Both are great cars tho<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    "HONDA = cheap, gas saver, commuter car, LOTS OF POTENTIAL"
    Honda Civic. Cheap, gas saver, cummuter car? Yes. "LOTS OF POTENTIAL", Uh.. no. ANY car can be made fast. But Honda Civics are FWD, have little diplacement, mediocre horse power, and very little torque. Yes, you can make it fast just like any car. But it's a very bad starting point.


    "STANG = UGLY, SLOW, basicly just suck"
    Ugly? Looks are a personal taste. I like the way the look, and so to milions of other people. If you don't, so be it. Slow? Yeah, some of them are (although they're still faster than Civics). But what about the 01 Cobra? The 03 Cobra? Yeah, they're slow too. 390lbs of torque and 390 horse power slow. lol

    "VETTE = fast, nice, $$" Yes, they're fast, nice, and worth every penny and then some.

    "spend the same amount of a vette on a honda, and the honda will smoke it."
    You mean it's less expensive to buy a cheaper car and then modify it?? Wow! What a concept!
