You get it yet?

Listen to me, yes it was made for fuel efficiency, BUT, they have made so many performance parts for them that it is a good tuner, a lot of the people do rice it up with bodykits and such but there are real racers out there

And for a track racing, you would wanna go with whatever will give you the most speed. Civic, not good for it.

Are you sure you arent confusing a virus with spyware? Besides, you should have a firewall anyway. Just surfing the internet will give you spyware if your too stupid to have a firewall.

And if you really did get spyware from it, talk to the owners of PHPBB, or CJB who we use to redirect.

Take it up with CJB then. My site wont work if I straight up redirect it to phpbb, but if i redirect through cjb, then to phpbb it works.

I dont pull up to people thinking im the shit either. also why nobody disses eclipse or talon when they put turbo on car but when someone puts it on civic its like oh ricer and all that shit. BTW the guys with muscle cars mod their cars too by putting supechargers sticking out of the hood and no one has a problem wit that but u mod civic everyone hates.

My biggest problem with civic owners is that many of them rice it up, then try to street race. The people who do turbo tend not to do it properly. Im singling out civics b/c i don't see nearly as much of any other car (domestics included) as the civic.

I still have a problem with people who like to improve the performance of their civic in general but im not discussing that.

To me, the Prelude was the only Honda to actually have power, besides the NSX.

I forgot about that.
Oh well, it doesnt matter, im just trying to say Civics are not sports cars, they were never meant to be raced, or "tuned."
I guess now people consider them "tuner" cars, but to me there still just a Civic.
And yeah, a Civic can be fast, but with alot of money put into it. I would rather have a car that has power stock, and make it even faster, rather then have a car with no power, and actually give it some power.
