why do people think lhs's are slow

Does anybody else have people try to pull up to the side of your car and pass you no matter if your going the speed limit or over

a couple days ago, some punk in a grand am was flyin down the street, as soon as he tried to pass me I hit the gas and mached his speed right away, he was still tryin to pass me until I got it up to about 80, and until he almost ran into a wall tryin to pass me

ya I know I've won a couple bucks off of civic owner's since I've had the lhs, I think they'd have a better chance with stock accords, if you want to make a honda faster than an lhs it's definitley not gonna be one of thoose stupid spoon hatchbacks, but maybe they think thoose stick on badges they buy from autozone make them faster

I cant put all hondas down. I have seen a 700HP honda before. It was nicely modified though. No fart cannon or spolier.

ive never had that problem. I usually have people pull up to the side of me to try and skip me when the lights turns green, and look over at the car and give up for some reason. My sunfire, on the other hand is a different story. They pull up on the side and look at me like what are you gonna do, and with its sucky performance theres nothing i can.

I know my old first gen with no mods finally met its match so far as the ricers go when I came up against an 01' Integra GSR with the 5 speed in it. But for some reason the last couple of months that I had it running nobody would screw with me...

Man, I hate when I try to pass someone and they speed up to match my speed. especially if they try to run me into a wall. Why do it?

Why? becouse they look like old mans cars.

The true question is why would they even "offer" to make themselves feel better, then opps not that one!

lol, for the principal of the matter, I live in a busy city and I hate when people are going like 70 down a very busy street where the speed limit is like 35, just figured if the guy ran into something he would learn a lesson
