You would have to ask him.































Most people refer to the 1/4 mile and 9 seconds would be very quick.

He's making the claim that his car will travel a certain distance or reach a certain speed in 9 seconds ( normally used when talking about runs on a 1/4 mile drag strip)

Well that it makes the 0-60 mph (roughly 0-100 kph) in 9 seconds. 9 seconds isn't that fast.































The fastest production cars do it in 2 to 3 seconds. A standard Golf GTI mark VI needs about 6 seconds.

It means that it can run 1/4 (quarter) mile in 9 seconds, it also means that your friend is a more-on who has nothing better to do with his/his parents money, than to waste it on stupid car add on-s like NOS. Perhaps, he's been sniffing too much NOS, Is he friend with a dentist?















Civics are for ... meeeeauuuuuwww!































loooooolllllooooooool















He's a liar!















I've seen Civics quarter mile races, doing low/high 11's, but I also saw a Ford Focus do a 8:41.(rear wheel drive conversion).















It takes a lot of upgrading: Transmission, differential/drive shafts, hub bearings and of course, Nitro (NOS).















So, if you have $15.000/30.000 to waste on your crappy car, you could probably do it too.















Look at this high 9s Civic:















And old VW Beetles smoking Civics, lol here:















Watch Import Drag Racing or search: 9 seconds civic.















Happy crashings.

It run a quarter mile 1/4 in 9 secs which is hard to believe as that is a very fast time. Even faster than this camaro Z28.

9 Seconds is probably 0-60 time.
