from his profile: "sportline springs, koni yellows"

I wouldve thought they lowered a little bit more than that though...

not everyone can slam their rides, it's not like they dont want to, its because of the $hitty roads...I'm on Teins, and rural roads here are a mess, the only thing that scratches sometimes is the middle section of the catback...

itll out corner most any other ride out there.

koni yellows
eibach springs
rsx type s rear swap bar with poly-urethane mounts
poly-urethane suspension bushings
neuspeed upper strut bar
neuspeed lower front and rear bars
+ a good driver and well you get my point, just because theres no teins under there dosent mean it dosent corner like its on rails.


it dropped it quite a bit from stock those are just some 18s i had around. i have some nice adr 17s that fill up the wells nicely

noone noticed those nice big brakes those are the sexy peices

the cf door sills just look fantastic on the car, they were one offed for me so dont ask where to get them. Ive seen some on ebay that dont look too horrible but im sure the the old addage applies Ebay = crap

yes other people do have these mods, i needed a title so get out of my *** damn.

This car rips up twisties, and as far as auto x, ive run it a few times over at cali speedway, i felt it went very well, its quite a nice autox car. It dosent really match up or compare in any way to my crx but its still nice, and still remains very comfortable considering it still has all its amenities, and i mean EVERYTHING, not gutted, it has the spare tire and tool kit, all the seats and so forth.
Maybe those peoples vics dont handle as well because they are missing the secret ingrediant........ Love hahah <<<<< so gay

Thats nothing out of the ordinary, thats your standard issue lowering job.
Just because you think it corners on rails, doesn't mean it does, and thats not going to outcorner everything thats out there. It requires a basis for comparision. I thought my car was nailed down until I rode in a Z06 on R comps.
Second of all, you're missing the 2 important links. Tires and an 'I don't give a **** about my tires' alignment. So not to cut down good hard work, but its nothing special.

well that can say your dad can't drive his corvette,
Or he's not going as hard as he can because he doesn't want to wad it up or he doesn't want a reckless driving ticket
You're talkin' like a true ricer here and its quite honestly not going to get you anywhere. You can talk it up like something fantastic, but it isnt. Millions of people have Konis and springs with a new swaybar.
Anyone who lowered an RSX on springs and put new shocks has effectively the same setup.

around here noone does much work on their civics, its all body kits and chrome 18s or 20's so comparing my vehicle to that, id say im a cut above. thats my .02 and noone can change my mind on it. IF youve never ridden in the car, you cant comment, but who denies that their vics can out corner alot of other stuff?

im not arguing that its something super special. Im not working with a crazy budget or it would be. The car does what it was built for and thats all i ask for.

Sure I can comment. They're commercially available parts. You can buy them anywhere and put them in anyones car. Which I have installed a set of Konis w/ prokits and an RSX bar on my good friend's civic 7 months ago. So I think I know what I'm looking at here.

He's not being hard on you because of what you did to your car, but because what you are claiming and braggin about. If you listed your mods and said you liked your setup in a different way (i.e., w/o claiming it's the best or you know from personal experience it can keep up w/ your dad's corvette) he probably just would've said "good job" and moved on...

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have all the stuff you did to your car on mine, but still... I doubt it's as great handling as you make it sound
