    this afternoon goin up west, i decided i was gonna try my 317000 km honda accord(auto) for top speed...

    It got to 115 mph right quick,about twice faster than my 2004 civic i had(manual) i had and it handles wayyyy better than the civic too.

    Well im glad i bought this car, i think they great cars!

    I might try to bypass speed limiter by puttin a on/off switch on the speed sensor wire on tranny...(that's the way to do it aint it??) :thinking:

    my old (96) civic toped out at 190 km/h about the same handles like **** and driveing like that will get you killed or at least a big tickit (know a guy with a 225lm/h over the limit tickit in his viper:saweet::saweet:)

    just stay away from hight speeds in a jap crap car. not good.

    I hate too say your wrong but you are; jap cars, specially hondas are not only good cars but VERY good cars, i owned a cavalier(chev) before my accord and it ran like a sinking boat compare to my accord.

    Now for trucks i go chev or gmc(straight axle)...no questions about it :D

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    You were probably getting hair or carpet fiber stuck in the axles, try revving it up and running it on the hard wood or vinyl floor next time... :D
