Default What is with all the honda garbage?

I'm sick of seeing all these little honda/acuras rolling around with their obnoxious little fart cans with 5 foot spoilers and crap. All these idiot owners think they're tough s*** cuz oooo they have a crappy 4 banger with an H22 and vtec and all that other nonsense. Honda only makes two true sports cars: NSX, S2000. ppl should save their money and buy a car worth driving and modding, not some gay ass honda rice burner crap.































Ride: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 612 awhp















weight down to 3450 lbs















137 mph 11.0 flat















I know, i know I'm drivin a large heavy car.But... looks and sounds better than civic plus more torque. only sacrificing top end power for blast off of line with AWD. I got my times off of 22 psi havent even run at 24 or 26 yet.















By the way, I EAT hondas.Sure I spend more money into this car, but it looks better, rides and handles better, and sounds better. I did lose to an NSX though at the drag... I'm looking for further means of weight reduction. And there are even faster and lighter 3000GTs out there...















Never said didn't like honda, just tired of the pretenders out there who rice out the car then talk big time s****. And if every car is worth modding, then lol i should start with my nephew's daewoo lmao. I don't appreciate the rudeness and I wasn't dissing honda in general. I apologize, i see if i came off the wrong way.















And this is America. I can bitch and moan all I want, if you don't like it go to China.

how much did it cost to build your 3s? compare that to a civic in terms of money spent. that much money in a civic hatch would stomp your 3s. for example: my friend has a 92 eg hatch. $6000 including price of car invested. runs 9's in the quarter. eat that for lunch right now .































ps.s i drive an srt4 with a stock 5 foot spoiler. my car runs 11's too.

honestly your driving a grenade.. lol and you joke on hondas.. i don' really care for hondas either but i've built 1 or two that would still run you down the in quarter.. honestly man before you start talking crap about 1 car.. lie or something about the car you drive.. your in a 3000GT.. their is a reason why mitsu quickly halted production.. those cars EXPLODE! lol and also.. now say you had an evo with 612 hp.. who would win? The EVO because.. IT Doesn't weigh the same as a full size diesel































edit: to the first poster.. lol your so full of crap.. 6k into the car once he aready had it.. or if he did only spend 6 k he's got a turbo on a d series that the only way he can hit a 9 on the quarter he's blowing the engine up.. and you say you have a stock srt4 that runs 11s.. well news for you the best anyone at motortrend or dodge could do was a 13.8... you drive a pig so shh































2nd edit: i drive a 2002 corvette.. had no engine when i bought it so i built a 5.3l truck motor.. 9.5:1 compression, magnuson blower.. and the best time i've done at a 1/4 mile is 10.7.. i'm pushing 551 at the rear wheels

When I was a motor-head we used to say "if it don't go chrome it"















Performance and ego seem to be important to some drivers, marketing departments know this and play to the wallets of interested parities. I find it amusing that someone would spend money to think their car will handle better or produce more power with these bolt on goodies.















PT Barnum the Circus owner dude used to say "A fool and his money are soon parted"















Don't get me wrong, some things can enhance performance, but I would rather save my money for fuel and maintenance...















I imagine most cant afford the cost of a NSX?















Last I heard Mitsubishi was still MADE IN JAPAN? Perhaps in Illinois..... so what?















I mean anything IS worth modding if that's where your head is at.















I used to Mod VW air cooled beetles back in the day ...... live and let live dude
