No replacement for displacement!

So your ricer has 1.6L, and my bottle of Pepsi (haha Stan) has 2.0L???

My lug nuts require more torque than your ricer produces.

Last but not least....FWD just plain sucks.

I've seen quite a few RWD ricers do that.


Well, they were rode out much better than most of those

I know...but the majority are.

If someone has a Supra with over $10,000 into it, that's cool by me.

I'm sick of piece of shit cars, such as a 1994 Civic with nothing more but a coffee can tailpipe, spoiler, and wheels with the driver thinking it's one bad ass ride and driving like a moron.

that's why there are 9 second neons and honda civic's on the track.

Quite a few are naturally aspirated too.

They'll hand your ass to you, then get 25+ mpg on the way home

My Brother will run his 02 civic against your v8 dodge

displacement has nothing to do with power to weight ratio.

there are evo VIII's pushig 500+hp with 3K into them(on top of vehicle price)

They do have some slick rides on there but I'm an old muscle car guy. They just feel different.

They're just sayings...geeze.

I'll run against his Civic light to light, then we'll hook a trailer up to each and race again.

Heh.... a Honda CRX with 140 ft-lbs of torque has a better torque to weight ratio than most mustang GTs..

gotta love Michigan and its closed minded UAW raised people..


I'm sure the 2 liter of soda argument works real well with sport bike guys, doesn't it?

Id rather have a fwd with quicker 60' times... then have to waste time with my car in the air. On the track that is a waste of energy and time.

No, the mustang won't be cool, and yea the Supra stock is still alright.

I'm not closed minded on the whole FWD vs. RWD thing. I know there are 8 second FWD cars and stuff. I'm just a traditionalist when it comes to cars. V8 and RWD. Viper is the only exception.
