Figured I would share this...

I have raced a few cars, and I have beat all of them..
06 elantra
07 scion tc
07 i4 fusion
Those drivers are all friends of mine... All Automatics, and stock.

I raced a slow ass civic last night on a highway; Looked like a 2001 body.
It had a body kit, and a horrible sounding exhaust.
We were both cruising at like 60... he would downshift... then I would, and he was in my rears every time..(We raced till about 90). I really think i could have taken him if i stayed in 5th instead of downshifting, then upshifting to 5th.. lol He must have been real pissed because we did this about three times. lol
Moral of the story=If your gonna put a body kit on something, make sure its fast.

Agreed, a car that looks good(which the civic probably didnt) should have the power to back up the looks. Nice kills BTW.
P.S.- don't post your speeds, its against the forum rules.

None of them earth-shattering, but a good list, if you're into that kind of thing.

A word of advise, and one that'll be quickly driven home, if history has taught us anything: Speed references are taboo around here. You won't get the boot for it, but you will get a warning, unless you edit that out real quick-like.

Custom front-bumper-mount bug guts; precision sprayed brake dust on OEM rims; 15% Pine Tree pollen over the clear coat.
No more SVT autocross, I drive the thing in the avatar.
