Quick 0-60 video I made yesterday...

Well actually 5-60. Pretty decent for an LX Civic.

Just thought I would share!

BTW, we need more 7thgen vids on streetfire guys, upload some vids!

Well, it was a last minute thing. I was coming home from school and I opened the glovebox only to find my digicam, so I said what the hell. I was alone in the car so I was driving with one hand, that explains it. For all those bashers over there on streetfire, half of them are 14 and dont even own a car, let them say what they want. Pretty decent meant decent for a civic.

It could be because the windows were closed, that might have made the difference. If you want I can take another video with a passenger filming for all you queasy guys(lol) and with the windows open so u can determine.

Thanks for all the compliments guys, I appreciate it.

Unfortunately its a darn auto, which I hate. This is a parent kinda thing, they just hate for kids to have manuals.

I actually am very much planning on doing an m/t swap in the future, like 1 year from now. I recently got a new job making some more money so I should be able to save up for one.

Many ppl say why not just take the money and go buy something else, I say why buy something else when I love my 'vic so much!

But really, I am doing the swap, not just saying its being planned like some ricers do.

BTW Im only 18 and I did buy the car with my own saved dough over many years of xmas' and b-days so, thats why it takes long for me to save. My new job pays 15 an hour (as opposed to my old one making 7 in which I could barely give my parents the insurance money),which is alot for an 18 year old, so I should have the funds.

Plus I am very good at driving a manual, learned on a buddys CB7 accord.

Let the games begin!

Go for it i'm 19 and love my vic too, you'll feel the difference right away if you swap to manual, good luck and let me know when you do it.

2? ... try 10.

auto trannies suck up a lot of hp ... also, the gears are much longer (since there are only 4 of them), so acceleration is a bit on the slow side.

is it really the horsepower that is different or just the amount of time it takes to get there, cause i didnt see 127 hp for autos and 137 for manual.
