    I like the import cars if they are not riced, but don't really like anything on the FWD platform. I almost bought an RSX-S at one point, but went with the S2000 mainly due to the RWD. Now I want my TQ numbers to be closer to the HP digits. Found that out the hard way. I did like turning 9000+ RPM's though.

    You can B18 this and B16 that all day, its still a slow weedwacker no matter how you look at it.

    You've obviously never seen how weight transfers under forward acceleration. The front end lifts and the rear end squats, meaning you will have more traction available in the rear.

    And then you say my friend "can't drive"?? What part about the tires spinning through 3rd gear don't you understand?? Its not driver error, its the fact that a light FWD car can't hook up worth a damn.

    Fast, streetable, non-riced out FWD's, huh?? When I see one, I'll be the first to let you know. Until then, I'll stick to my theory that FWD sucks for racing, which happends to jive with the rest of the civilized world.

    OL and i love how when people cant argue worth a damn, they throw the "it sounds like a weedwacked" comment in there LOL that line has and will always crack me up.
    Can't argue worth a damn?? I can tear you a new asshole in your whole ricer arguement, I have a reputation for that, but that has absolutely nothing to do with it. Hondas and 4 cylinders in general just sound like shit, I don't see how it cracks you up?? Its true, there is really nothing funny about it.

    Both those videos are pointless. Everyone knows that the Cobalt SS Supercharged is faster than an RSX-S, your single video example doesn't change that. You can't argue with the facts.

    And the fact that you would take an old pile of crap economy car with a butchered integra engine swap over a brand new Cobalt SS Supercharged says a lot about your character. We'll just leave it at that.

    LOL i understand what your saying, i used to drive a fwd car LOL. Thats where you have to learn where to put your money, all that power will not do jack unless you have the suspension to back it up

    And i also still think your friend cant drive. What does he have done to the suspension ? if nothing then thats his fault for not working on that, a properly setup suspension will launch a fwd car just as good as a RWD or AWD, if he DOES have a good suspenion setup then refer to what i stated a while ago, he cant drive.

    LOL im not arguing whether they sound like shit or not, LOL cause personally, thats another reason i bought my Fbody, i didnt like the generalization that i got when i drove my import, plus i wanted to get into a different field of cars, i was tired of doing the import thing

    LOL cause one of my good buddies used to own one, and it felt about as fast as a cammed honda i rode in LOL

    And im sorry i would rather take a car a few years older, that has been known all around the world, as one of the most reliable cars on the market, over a new cobalt ss or any cobalt that hasnt really proved anything to me yet, and they've been out for how long now ? and NOT just the new coablt, but the cavy really didnt help much to put chevy in the good graces of the automotive world for known reliablity like honda or toyota.

    Suspension setup doesn't mean jack when you have more power to the wheels than you are able to put to the ground. His car has full coilover suspension with tubular control and trailing arms, doesn't mean shit.

    A FWD will never launch like a RWD or AWD car, its simply against the laws of physics. You can put all kinds of money into the suspension and tires, its still never going to be an ideal setup. FWD was designed to make cars more compact and cheaper, not for drag racing.

    LOL ive seen plenty of imports that arent riced out. Just gotta get out more i guess ?
    "LOL" I get out plenty. Its just that finding a modified japanese car thats not riced up is like finding a needle in a haystack. Every modified jap car I see has a fart can exhaust or some kind of tacky body kit or wing, if you look at Japanese culture though thats what they think looks good on cars, so thats how people modify them.

    LOL cause one of my good buddies used to own one, and it felt about as fast as a cammed honda i rode in LOL
    I find that interesting because I've never seen a naturally aspirated Honda that was anything resembling "fast". In fact, before my friend turbo'd his Civic, when it was just a bubble with a B18 w/ bolt ons and cams, he raced my other friends '05 Cobalt SS Supercharged. It wasn't even a race, the Cobalt blew him away.

    Civics are only reliable if you don't modify them. Drive it like a race car and it will prove to be one of the most unreliable vehicles on the road. Everything on the car is designed for light duty and fuel economy, once you start ripping on them they fall apart. The tranny, clutch, axles, shifter, brakes, suspension, chassis, motor, and just about everything else ends up broken if you try and drive it like a performance vehicle. They simply aren't designed for it. GM has nothing to prove, there are still Chevy vehicles on the road that are 50+ years old on original engines and transmissions. I've never seen a high mileage Civic that didn't have valvetrain clatter and visibly burn oil, I'm not impressed by their "reliability" at all. Especially when it comes time to buy parts and they end up costing more than the car is worth. The Cobalt SS was at least designed with performance in mind, so everything is already beefed up from the factory. Honda and quality are no longer synonyms, look at the new Civic Si and S2000, all kinds of transmission recalls. Brand new cars with 2,000 miles on them and they are grinding gears going into 2nd and 3rd. Honda says the diagnosis is that the synchros are going bad, and the solution is to replace the synchros with the same ones that were installed at the factory, so the problems come back in another 2,000 miles. The list of people with the problem is somewhere around 100 pages on 8thgencivic, maybe you should open your eyes and do a little research before you go proclaiming that Honda is the benchmark of quality and reliability.

    and just to be fair heres the Z06 on a 100shot against the integras 150shot

    guy in the Z06 has been racing cars for about 25yrs, so its nothing new to him, same with the guy in the integra, been at it just as long. Now dont get this construed as me taking an imports side, ive been on both sides, and both have their advantages and disadvantages but reguardless i still think your friend cant drive, i dont feel like arguing with someone who thinks american cars are gods gift to the automotive world, YOUR the reason some of the domestic guys get a bad name, your so single minded, and think that " OOOH NOES HE'S TALKING ABOUT A IMPORT VS DOMESTIC, or FWD VS RWD" your an idiot, im not gonna discuss this anymore. I've heard some bad things about this site before, only joined cause a good buddy of mine linked me to some stuff he's trying to get started.

    LOL my first car was a 89 civic DX hatchback, car had 220K miles when i got in my wreck. Valve train callter, nope not in that car, EVER ? never burned any oil either. And performance in mind ? LOL straight line maybe, thats it. Ill let you keep your single-minded attitude, i still think you need to get out more, and open your mind. Chevy isnt the only car manufacture in the world, you do know this right ?

    LOL is that the only recall you can think of ? seriously ?

    Should i go through the list of chevy recalls compared to other manufactures ?

    boofthese, don't mind ignorance. You're on an LS1 website, and here people refuse to admit the fact that there are plenty of cars of all makes and models that are faster than our precious LS1s... stock and modded. I've seen the 4 cylinders that'll make even bolt-on LS1 owners bitch and whine. There's no shame in losing to a well-built machine, and I think someone who builds such a car deserves more respect than the person who buys it off of the factory floor.

    It's interesting to me that the fast ones usually don't flaunt it, and instead just look clean and sleeper.

    i think its also fair to point out were not comparing apples to apples here....its a heavily modified integra vs a near stock z06......ANYTHING can be made fast if u dump enough money into it....does that make it wise though? twin turbo and spray the vette and see what happens?? its rediculous dumping a ton of money into a fwd ecobox thats not made to be a race car ....theres always somone faster with more money

    LOL its not a heavily modified car though. And yes, the GSR integra was made to be the "performance" integra. All the integra has is cams, intake mani and its sleeved
