Dumb 80'* Civic riced out passes me and gets in front and floors it. I keep up with his rear the whole way, barely even touching the pedal. Just a quick laugh for me.


Also, I didn't know those things can get up to 90!!?!?!

It'* not so much HP as it is redline rpm'* and final drive ratio (gearing).

We don't want to open that can of worms again

Back in College I had a friend with a 3 banger Geo Metro. We passed a semi doing 55 at what seemed to me to be slow motion with on-coming traffic. I thought the thing was going to rattle apart...was pretty scary.

i wasn't thinking one day and was actually doing the speed limit, and then all of a sudden i hear this engine wind up behind me, then the car moves over and slowly starts to go past me, i start LMAO when i see it'* a metro, funniest thing i've ever seen, i couldn't believe how slow it went by... then another time i was sitting at this light, and a metro pulls up, and revs it'* engine. i roll down my window and ask him if he'* on crack, he says no... and i tell him to floor it from the light, i had to slow down to keep up with him and damn if his engine wasn't winding out...
