The LNF in the Solstice GXP has far more potential then the LLT.

Stock with an HP tune they can do 300 whp and run 12 second passes consistently, with E85/DP/Intake/Slicks 350 whp+ and high 11's is easily doable and has been done(on the stock K04).

Saying it's a Honda is a compliment. If you have ever worked on one you will understand, and see where they have thought things through(mechanically) where other car makers have skimped(Ford/Chevy/Chrysler).

That's less effective then saying "who cares about your Camaro..... it is still a chevy....."

No one who drives a car for any other purpose than practicality holds Honda in high regard.


I dont care if they have the shortest shelf life in the world. They might not be the all out quickest, or most reliable but:

"Built FORD Tough"
and
"Chevy Runs Deep"

Mean something.

At least a Honda Accord is made/assembled in the heartland of America, same can't be said for many GM/Ford products.

It's funny because these are the same people that say that we shouldn't buy made in china products because it kills jobs in the USA. But when other companies outsource to here and create jobs, we still shouldn't buy their products because the name isn't "American". Pot. Kettle.

I wholeheartedly disagree with the first sentence. one thing Honda has almost always succeded at is providing mundane appliances that are actually fun to drive and sets them appart from just being about practicality, though they seem to do that best too. Do they have the HP or acceleration of the pony cars? Of course not! But fun to drive and a good car is about more than straightline acceleration (I know BLASPHEMY!)

Which one would you rather drive on a twisty mountain road? The Camry has gearing and redline to help commuters that have to dominate rush hour. Front wheel drive automatic car can't really use more than 200 hp in a practical sense. You just burn up the tires as you plow through the turns.

A Camry will not get you as much attention as a camaro. Lets face it, there is a reason we bought camaros they are quick and sexy. Plus look at the women that think a camaro is hot vs the Camry. check please!

Given the wgt/hp ratio, I would say all Camaro.

Given the actual power it puts down, I would say all Camry. The Camry doesn't have fluffed up hp figures... There was an LFX on the dyno at local shop today and it put down 257 whp. Yet it's rated 323 hp, yes it was a manual and broken in.

50-70 is horrible spot for an auto v6 lfx(I should know, I drove a rental one for a month straight) because 1st goes to 50 and 2nd to 80 or so mph.

Honda's/ Toyotas have no style and look like Pieces of shit, they are built light weight so yeah, they are faster than a v6 Camaro,, but they don't have the same feel as the Camaro,, for example this week I had a impala rental and it was annoying because the sunlight would come into the front of the car and it was hot & uncomfortable, but the Camaro sits back farther so your sitting in the shade and it's much more comfortable, also I like the wide doors of the Camaro, it makes it easier to get in & out of, plus you cant compare a camry/ accord interior to the Camaro, Camaro is so much more styled, although I believe they made the accord better this year,, then you have RWD vs FWD,,,

if you need a 4 door car then great, but anyone who doesn't need 4 doors shouldn't buy a 4 door car.

It's the little things like this why we choose the Camaro, if you want the fastest car then get the SS.

okay, you can say a go cart is fun to drive too, but there is no comparison between a performance orientated car and a Economic orientated car.

RWD being better then FWD is invalid argument if both have less then 260 hp to the wheels and run 14's. FWD is actually better and more efficient in lower hp(less then 300) applications

Research. Hondas have very sophisticated suspensions for the most part and are fun to drive with the utility baked in, which is what I said so I am missing your point if there is anything valid other than blind fanboism in this or your last post.....

Lol, you realize the per 14 Impala is easily one of the worst sedans on the market right now and even the Camry, let alone the Accord, runs circles around it. And really sedans are bad because they have big enough windows to see out of and the sun hits you? Well that is a creative, if totally silly, excuse.

I guess you like torque steer. hey, it couldn't be everyone uses FWD because it's cheaper to produce?
