I havent taken the G to the track but when I had my 98 stang GT with a few minor mods my best time was a 14.5 @96mph. Kind of slow but hey what can I say...Im not that good of a driver! [:D] Im wondering if the my G can break into the high 14's???

Hhmm so if the coupe gets 14.4 and thats probably with a 6MT...then Im think 14.6-14.9 for the sedan. I think it was Road&Track where they tested it and wrote a 14.6 I think for it...somewhere I believe I read a 14.6 tested by someone...

magazine times are always off. give some G owners some time, and we'll start seeing low 14 second 1/4 times. VQ35 powered maxima automatics are already running low 14s..some are in the high 13s with mods.

Yeah well I raced my roommate last summer and he has a 99GT with a fastest track time of 14.0 with a few minor mods. It is definately capable of high 13's. Anyway we raced from about a 30roll to 100 and I was still right at his back bumper with my front bumper. So I agree with you buzz...give them some time and we will start seeing G's in the low 14's for sure...

Sorry CIVIC...not sure I believe you. Why dont you post a pic of your timeslip. I have NEVER seen in all my times of going to the track a civic run below a 15.0 that wasn't heavily modded...

BUT on another note...it's a civic...hahaha...enough said man! Please tell me your not trying to compare cars here...even if my G ran a 16 second quarter I would STILL take it over a CIVIC...lol [lol]

And if you're going to compare using C&D's data, you should use their updated speeds. 0-60 in 5.5 and a quarter in 14.2 if memory serves.

hey its cool that you dont believe me. i wouldnt believe it either if i hadnt actually done it myself. ill post the timeslip when im at home and have some time to mess with the scanner. only mods i have are intake, header and exhaust. but this isnt any run-of-the-mill civic that you see all primered, sportin a F&F wing, and bouncin like its on a damn trampoline.[:D]

i have one of the (marginally) low-volume production civics named the Si. and for anyone whos not aquainted with it, its a kind of a factory "hot rod" so to speak. it has a slightly larger engine than most civics, and it has a cam system that has yet to be outdone by an engine of the same type and size.

its called DOHC VTEC (dual overhead cam, variable valve timing and electronic lift control) and how it works is that there is a computer that monitors engine speed, and when the engine speed gets to a certain rpm, usually around 5600, it activates a larger cam profile on the intake and exhaust cam, drawing in and expelling more air, and during this the computer continues to control spark, timing, and everything else, all the way up to its 8200 rpm redline.[:D]

this enables it to make some serious power on a relatively small engine. stock, its a 1.6 liter engine that makes 160 HP, 100hp per liter. the downside is, it has absolutely CRAP torque: 111 lb-ft[V] so its all top end.....loud as hell too, even with the stock exhaust[rockon]. not at all ricey sounding either(with the stock exhaust).

hey tim, do you think that you could post a link to a clip we put in the video? ill show you which one.

I've never understood this. What, pre tel, is the purpose of a large wing on a front wheel driven car? The purpose of a wing on a performance car is to increase down force on the rear, thereby improving traction of the driving wheels. If anything, you're REMOVING traction on your driving wheels.

The only remaining possibility must be aesthetics. However, the appearance to those that are aware of basic physics is merely one of a poseur.

I've always found that odd.

i dont know why he even mentioned it (i wouldnt have) -- it's just a standard spoiler except the material it is made out of. i think its a lighter material than most but im not sure about it. it's not like some riced out 3 foot alum. wing that youd see on some Fast and the Furious wanna-be. Just a typcial, run of the mill, spoiler. At typical speeds it only adds weight.
