what up fellow Jerz driver. The way the expression is used is basically to bash SI drivers cuz we finally got a i4 domestic that performs and can be modified to perform better than an import.
Can it beat a Honda SI in a race? Depends on where your racing, how far, etc. SVTF's off the line are slower than the SI. However the SVT's handling is 100% better than the SI Civic. I've never personally 1/4 mile street raced an SI,(Definitely will some day). If what your asking 1/4 mile red light to red light straight line race, it would definitely depend on the driver and vtec kick.

Who knows what you can beat? It all depends on the driver of the other car and you.

Yeah sometimes red can be a faster color you know. (j/k)

One of my buddies has the new Si (focus wanabe), We looked at the weight almost the same.
We looked at the specs.

[:eek:)] His Si is rated at 160 hp
[:)~] and my SVT is rated at 170hp

Also I don't remember our FPT but I know I had 10 more pounds
So by the books we are faster. But that close it would probaly be the driver

I think it was 145 FPT and 155 FPT the SVT being the greater of the two.

I actually test drove a new Si for my friend and the acceleration was a huge disappointment, the handling also was horrible. I drove a 99 si a while back and it was very nice. I read in quite a few magazines that they were also not happy with the new one. In the SCC shootout in January of last year it came in dead last, they said the first 3 mods they would do was replace the drivetrain, transmission, and suspension. They said it needed the RSX drivetrain and transmission. I had to agree with them after driving it.
