Sooooo I went to Honda Day today.........

Let me just start off by saying that I'm a die hard American Muscle guy and I am in no way into tuners (Supra's are a BIG exception however). If you don't know what Honda Day is, it's pretty much what it sounds like (think Camaro5 Fest). I decided to go simply to check out NJ/ E-Town raceway because a track day has been on my mind for some time, plus it's my bday so I wanted to see some racing. I took a nice little video which I will post up soon, and which contains some INTENSE runs. What I learned today is that those damn rice rockets are ****ing quick. Many of them were running 10's and 9's EASILY. So in the end it was a lot of fun and the general theme of this little adventure is "to each his own".


I'll get that video up ASAP.

Danny.

Yeah, a lot of them are quick.
clutches and driveline parts don't last though.
At least with a Camaro/GTO/Mustang/Challenger you can add 75+hp and have reasonable durability as long as you don't beat on it day in and day out.

Exactly, some are almost stock while some have their exhausts coming straight out of the hood and are running huge drag radials.

Weight to power ratio has alot to do with it and a little NOS does not hurt either.

Sound like you had a good time. Glad to hear it. Happy Birthday! Coming from the import crowd, I was never really into drag racing. The other guys I hung with, however, were. That whole, 'no replacement for displacement,' thing, these guys use technology and trick tuning to even the playing field. They take data logging and dyno-tuning to the next level. Much respect for those types of enthusiasts.

Most of the guys I cruise with all drive "tuner" cars. They're all really nice cars and can be surprisingly quick.

I don't like tuners for only one reason. I can't drive a front wheel drive car fast for sh*t! It's like learning to drive all over again. They're great for a DD, yeah. However, I always come within a gnat's *ss of putting FWD cars into a ditch every time I really try and put one down the road like I would a sports car.

I have respect for any engine that makes alot of power. Imports are no exceptions. However, most of the cars that are running 10's are cages on wheels. Stripped interior, lexan windows, no comforts, etc. 10 second Camaros can still have full interiors and all the comforts.

Driving a 10 sec. honda is like coming out of the closet. Sure at first you'll surprise a few people but everyone could see you were gay all along.
