Bawked's Honda Replacement

Postby Bawked » Tue Aug 18, 2015 4:44 pm

Soooo I got sick of fwd, even though the Euro R is quite a nice car. It's 1400kg and doesn't have enough torque.

So a 3.2L V6 should sort that issue, and maybe some AWD for fun :twisted:

This thing has the best standard exhaust of any car which is under $20k, it has a flap in the exhaust which keeps it quiet at low speeds. Which you can override control of by adding a switch.

Very nice! I recently went with my first AWD as well (not counting part time 4WD rigs), but mine is nowhere near as fast. :D

BLASPHEMIES!!!! :o :shock: :evil:

:lol:

just kidding; i can totally understand that reasoning. i think my accord is just about perfectly balanced between handling, ride and comfort, maybe a little firm for my liking overall. if we had type Rs up in here, you'd probably be hearing more complaints from us about the sportier hondas. the closest we get now is the civic si, and maybe something else i can't think of. oh, the acura ILX a-spec or whatever, but i hear that's not as sporty as it may appear to be.

haha I must be getting old!

If it was a 500hp gtr with suspension that hard, you wouldn't hear me complaining, hell it could have no suspension. But its a 1400kg (3100lb) honda with a decent interior, its not fast enough to have stiff suspension.

well, that is probably a matter of opinion. what one person thinks is slow could be fast to the next guy... either that, or you don't have enough curvy mountain roads :?: :?: :? not trying to cause a riot, just saying :lol:
