    What a pile of fawking cow manure? I almost had to get out and push the POS Accord up the friggin hells. I'd rather of drove the Stock Wannabe Prerunner K5 with 35's and 3.73 over the same mountains /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    The friggin Honda has less guts than the French government /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    If I can haul tail up to Tahoe in my POS Neon, then you can do it in your Honda.... just be heavy on the gas when it's flat right before the inclines and you'll be able to get up to speed better on the hills. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    A Neon's powerband is totally different than an Accord. I'm sure I wouldn't of had a probably with a Neon. But then again, how does it do in traffic? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    My 98 Dodge Status is a pooch going up steep hills, but it's a automadic also. Next draily driver I buy will be a V-6 at the least. 95% of the 4cly econobox cars are going to be pooches. Thats just the way it is, and it's worse if you grew up driving V-8's bucouse they don't have the power you're used to when you mash the pedal. Oh well, you give up something for the MPG.

    When I used to have a 90 Honda Civic, all my good friends used to make jokes at how I drove... I used to manually shift the car down into 3rd from OD just to pass other vehichles... It turned into a manual for me! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif They got a kick out of it, but none the less, I would fly in that car! Hill or not! Got 6 speeding tickets in 2.5 years and lost my license cause 3 were in 1 year! Got it back and sold the car cause it was time too! I like those little scoot cars, but hell if I ever bought a real car with some a$$! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    This car looks like poo since it's been hit so many time by idiots, but it drives fine as far as speed. I never have had an issue with people saying it goes too slow.... now an issue with it breaking, yeah, it has those.... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I noticed nobody has said anything about y'all going too slow, especially after that one day you blew by Chaz and I on US 50 after the first race.

    Chaz was going 55mph in a 65mph zone... I wanted to hit the photo place by 4:30 to get the prints, so I had to drive like I was on a mission! Not my fault he was driving slow! I was told I was too slow at that dang go kart place. If only it had decent steering. I'd been going good in that. It killed my arms. I was disappointed on that one for sure...

    That's not excuse. The guy that took Class 7 today lost the power steering belt on his Toy today and had to drive over goat trails /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You don't need a fast car to get a speeding ticket.
    My friend has a pos 90 corsica and that thing is slow --he's gotten 3 or so tickets in the past 2 years. I also got a buddy with a 02 vette w/ 0 speeding tickets.
