    you also don't add 70 hp and 60+ lbs ft extra to get the same acceleration...

    If you want to go fast for that type of money, buy a Pontiac G8 and run mid 13's.

    You do increase those figures to stay competitive in a market that keeps increasing HP

    Not everybody is concerned with how fast their car is, but would much rather hear about how reliable, comfortable, and practical they are.

    here's the culprit

    With the standard VSA stability control turned off, the Accord's computer doesn't allow full-throttle acceleration until about 20 mph.

    p.s. the new Camry w/ the same HP and more weight does 14.6 in the 1/4 mile, which is a full second faster...

    p.s. 2.0 honda's fuckin stupid for doing this
