Default Why do people think honda civics are good race cars?

I mean they are terrible. They have small 2 liter engines. Their engines burn up if you do anything with it. They're ugly. I could keep going on forever.I don't have one. lol. I wouldn't waste my time or money on a grocery getter...Oh, even better. A 1.8 liter engine.You guys are assuming wrong. I'm into european production cars. Audi, lotus, the others (not a big fan of exotics though). Also, my favorite car for a long time was the lancer evolution untill I learned that it had a little 2 liter engine on it and the only reason it was fast was because it had a huge turbo on it.

You obviously don't know much about cars or tuners for that fact. These little cars have great potential. I have seen them run 9 second quarter miles and if professional tuned can get a 7 sec quarter mile. you just got to know what you are doing.

Don't know what you did to yours, but those civics have reputations for being unbreakable. They are small , but they can be made to make horsepower. Think of the crotch rocket sport bikes with 15000 rpm red lines.

i cant imagine why you would build a race car out of a car that is built for ECONOMY. the cheapest parts available go on that car, but i guess thats why everyone loves em, there cheap....and sound like weed wackers. man i love making fun of those cars. besides it takes twice as much money to make a small engine go fast as oppsed to a v-8 or let say camarostupid ricers!

Honda builds a very good, very dependable car. But I'm with you 100% about those damn poser rice racers with the dumb wings and the dumber giant exhaust pipes and the dumb and ugly decals that adorn them (just what the hell does NOPI even mean, anyway??). I have to laugh everytime I see some hyper-tuned Civic driver trying to leave rubber at every stop light like they are some kind of bad-azzed street racer -- gimmie a break. I have less money in my whole car (a '97 Mustang GT) then they have in tires, wheels and exhaust alone and I can bury ANY of them at any time I feel like. It's like UFO's and Elvis -- I just don't get it....
