my friend got over 127mph with his ZR900(slightly modded for a snowmobile)

The thundercat 1000 3 cylinder...172hp...(and other big sled) go easily over 130mph
They can go faster but only on icy surface. Like a road or a lake.

It can. It is still breaking in and the timing is retarded until 300 miles at which the PCM will allow full timing. The folks at the shop said it'll top out @ around 110 ish.

that vid was sweet, id love to do that the fastest i have been on my own ski-doo is 130kph but that was on my old 92 plus 583 extended track...i expecet to get well over 100 MPH on my new sled.
ill br riding it for the frist time this weekend and if i feel that the lake is smooth enough i just might take a quick vid from 0-TOP SPEED (im not sure if i have to hold the button to take vids on the new digital but if i dont then ill definetly make a vid)

"This car is not that fast, it does not get up and go like the Taurus (her old car) and certainly not like my LeSabre."

The civics tho, all Bs aside, those things don't perform for crap. I mean you can't even safely pull out into traffic. Not unless the car in the lane is a mile away.

The bonne'* tho, it is like you decide on a speed, hit the gas accordingly, and it'* pretty much there.

Honda - driver decides on a speed, hit the gas, and the car says - "WTF you want me to move?" As the driver says - PLEASE hurry! There is a 3800 coming and it'* going to crunch me!
Im sure you dont like "honda driver" that tell you your car is a boat or something like that, why you talk ***^ about honda car and driver?? depend on opinions only (ok theres people that think their car are hot)

i had a '91 hatchback with a B16a (SiR japan) with some minor mods, and it was moving as fast as my bonneville. (no supercharger, no turbo)
(If you see an LSvtec in an hatchback civic, dont even think you stand a chance, one of my friend run [email protected] on slick with it ,it only got special piston and chipped ecu,with the exhaust sytem too,headers)

OK, that is not a luxurious car, but its a more fun to beat than a Bonneville.(imo)

Everyday driving i prefer the bonneville.

Im not trying to talk against any people or car brand, just not underestimate all honda
like some people do for Bonneville.


...back to main subject...
Understood, but the other posters were talking about stock cars, not modded ones. If I have a ton of money and the inkling to do so, I could make any car uber fast. However, we are talking about stock performance, and the stock civic, while very economical and a good value, is NOT fast.

the car of fantastic88 isnt stock and he plan doing more mod to get his goal...(first post)
And my civic with everything cost me 5000$ car included.

for a 5000$(canadian) car , i think its not bad. And its not "uber" fast ...




And fantastic88, youll love the difference when the PCM will allow full power, on my brother'* 600 MXZ i felt it instantly!!

The subject had diverged from the op'* post to talk about civics. I was addressing that. As were you in the post you quoted, or so it seemed to me, and my friend who was looking over my shoulder.

If I misunderstood, then I truly appologize, as it was not meant as a flame.

Case in point. My friend who is here working next to me has a Neon. My ssei will easily beat a stock one. However, with an engine swap, etc... we are now pretty equal.
