Personally, if i had that kind of money, i could do just as well, without nitrous, in a nice american sportscar. Even a german car! Give me a break, i dont see the logic in all that.
    there isnt anything wrong with a civic and most of them dont cost $20,000 see I got one at $200 even thought it is an '89 hatch back. the fascination is that you can buy on for cheap, rip the stock motor out and throw either a B16A2(Civic SiR),B16B(Civic Type-R),B18C1(Integra GSR),B18C5(Integra Type-R),B20B(AWD CRV) motor in them and they will be pretty damn quick... see around here when ppl fix their cars they usually dont go for looks first, you go tune the motor, then work your way outside. DUH! when i got my hatch the first thing i did is put a B16B(Type-R) that was quick enough to beat 99 model mustangs except saleens.but now saleens, cobra, SS comaros cant beat me. while your sitting there talking shit about civic's Saturday night my boy in a 470HP hatch back EG style beat everyone but a 2,000HP Cuda. so you can lay off hatches, see b/c we dont drive our dads cars we have our own... you cant talk shyt unless you have your own car worth racing. oh and yes civic's they are sport cars.
    (for the people that know me i still have my HatchiRoku)
    Mods to my hatch:B16B, HKS Hi Flow catback exaust,HKS ball bearing turbo, HKS front mount intercooler, HKS Pistons, HKS boost oil and water temp gauges, Blitz side mount oil cooler, Mugen Header, Mugen downpipe, Mugen Cam cover, Skunk2 testpipe, Crower racing stroker kit, ACT Drag Mugen MF10 wheels, Yokohama Advan A048 tires, Spoon 4pot calipers, all wheel Type-R disk brakes, JDM Integra front conversion, Mugen front bumper, Mugen Carbon Fiber hood, JDM Integra Type R interior. too much to list.

    So you threw $15,000 at an economy car. Guess what. It's still an economy car.

    still pretty stupid to spend that much money on a civic tho, like its a fast car on its own but for that much money u can buy a way faster car, and roomier, more comfy, less compromising, ect.

    Yeah well the majority of Civics "round here" are toys. They have some cult status, probably cause people see them in tuning mags and they can be bought cheap. The biggest mods they get are oversized wheels and the mandatory fart can. And it generally helps to modify brakes and suspension in line with the motor.

    I presume thats a motor, we arent all fan boys.

    What stock ones, go figure. Put a hot motor in a cheap small car and it "beats" (whatever that means) larger unmodified cars. Where and what are these contests you have won?

    I agree crisis, I don't think Honda's goal was to make a sports car when civics were made, thier goal was to make an econo-box commuter car. I don't understand why kids view them as sports cars.

    Cause theyre cheap and attainable and have starred in hot 4 tuning mags where certain people have chosen to modify them to extremes. If you look at similar sized/type alternatives you have Pulsars, Corrolas etc. Honda has a "name" with percieved connotations to quality and psuedo prestige as far as Japanese cars go, which also adds to the attraction.

    because they're light, tossable, and they're faster then many cars that cost twice as much

    true the design was not meant to be a jgtc race car

    but it was a good platform for their performance oriented models like the integra/rsx/sir

    what makes it a girls car ? and what's wrong with a girl's car? u sexist?

    he could read a lot of mags ... OR he actually did perform those mods which would be the reason why he knows the names of all of the parts
