LoL @ Civic.

So I was cruising down the street with a couple of friends ( we were 4 in the car )... and I see this stock civic... no fart pipe no nothing just driving like an ass, he would spin wheels when changing gears... and well I didn't like that... cruised like that for a while and then I finally ended next to him ... I was in 3rd gear in autostick at the time... lost some time down shifting... and then finally ended in 1st... the rest is well.. history ! I probably needed 2 seconds to get in front of him and he wouldn't let off the gas so I figured I won't let him fly by me like a ricer so I kept on going... finally let off the gas at about 170k's and I had 8 or more lengths on him at the time.

So you raced and beat a stock Civic. Cograts I guess.

The guy in the civic obviously didn't know how to drive..bottom end he should have had you easily, till about 90 k or so. That's the biggest downfall of these monster cars...all top end! Don't get me wrong, I love my Trep...I was out today on some test drives...Mustang GT, Charger ( 3.5 HO ) and an Avenger R/T ( definately the quickest )...the only advantage any of them had was the fuel economy.

I, for one, would not want to have a run in with a newer Civic of the Si variety.

My 89 Si smoked many full size V6 and V8, but then they were quicker back then. all I had was a very expensive tune-up...it's not all about horsepower you know.

My freind in his '06 civic base automatic thinks he can smoke the '02 ES... we kinda raced @ a light after he finished work. I was not shure if he was going to realy go for it so he got me off the line but i cought up quick. He said he let go of the gas @ 60 but i was ahead before. This was not an all out race lol, we where passing tim's @ 12:30am where all the cops hang out lol. I whent up to 80 in a 50 zone so I was taking a risk. The tranny was set in "3" the whole time, think I could take him hands down next time!

Your friend is on CRACK. I have an '06 Civic base 5-speed, and I KNOW that my Intrepid R/T DESTROYS that car in a race

Not to be a d1ck or anything (cuz I drive one as a winter car) but neither an intrepid nor a civic of any year or flavor can be considered anything close to a 'fast' car. Racing either of them is just kinda dumb. One's a sporty grocery getter, the other an econobox.
