    when they drive civics or accords?

    theres only like 5 four cylander cars that can COMPETE... modded civics and accords consistantly get roasted by stock talons, eclipses, integras... and still those cars aint all that

    the way to go is american or german. japan comes out with very fuew truely fast cars (the z, maxima, supra, 300gt, etc..)

    Ok, I guess I'll be the one to take you to school.

    First off there are different interpertations of the word "fast". You must first learn that yours is not fact.

    Next, the only peope who have Civic's or whatever, and actually think they are "fast" (in the sense your speaking of) are 99.9% of the time your run of the mill rice boy, who most likely doesnt deserve to be behind the wheel of any car.

    The people who own these cars and actually have a clue, know what their cars are capable of, and use them within their specific classes at whatever racing event it may be from bracket drag racing to auto-X. Generally, these people arent retarded enough to try a heads up street race with somthing of greater straight line performance....much less street race at all.

    Lastly you must understand that building and modifing cars is a hobby. A hobby is usually somthing you love to do that gives you a bit of a challenge. I dont know about you, but building a little NA 4 banger into a race car, (no matter what kind of racing it is) is one hell of a challenge.

    If your not a fan of a challenge, and just want out of the box speed. Sure, go buy a Turbo DSM or Z28, or whatever.

    What the fuck.... since when was the maxima a fast car.

    The top japanese imports have always been, Supra TT, RX7 TT, vr4, 300zxTT, and those are really the top stock ones that have came from japan to our shores. The new ones are the STi, Evo shit like that.

    And to comment on the civics and shit not being fast, i think Polar has said enough.

    spent G's....whats G's.... like what 2 grand on his car. Shit that can be a set of rims and a kit. If he spent money like for a swap or FI, that maxima would of been as baked as the shit served from Boston Market. Auto Maxima's are I REPEAT not fast. Quick... maybe... and thats streching it.

    V6's dont mean shit. I know plenty of 4 cyl. that rape that shit on a daily basis.....

    Yeahhhh, Im gonna have to go ahead and disagree with ya on that one too. Tell your "boy" he needs to give his Type-R (if its even real) to a good home, and someone who knows how to drive it.

    What Si's you talking about? I personally have never seen a stock Civic Si break into the 14's. Low 15's in the right conditions yes, but no 14's. Stock Type-R's are lucky to run high 14's in the right conditions.
