Sounds like some think it was just the Horsepower and others think it was all in the tires. Geesh. I guess it would have been more acceptable to them with Fart can mufflers with 6" tips and a wing off a 747 hanging off the back.

"...a display of raw horsepower and not much else." Yeah, braking doesn't count, suspension doesn't matter, and aerodynamically, all cars are the same.

My question is, who cares what some ten year old on Honda has to say?

I would have never known any about a Honda forum if it wasn't posted here. Is there enough people in the world that care enough about that junk to want to waste their lives talking about them.

--of course there will be "hate" --

Let me share something with you......

...it was written by Advertising Executive Theodore McManus early in the 20th Century -- as an ad for Cadillac in the Saturday Evening Post.....

I have a copy of it hanging in my office - because the words have great meaning.........

Enjoy and ignore the haters -- knowing that we just unleashed a BEAST...


The Penalty of Leadership



"In every field of human endeavor, he that is first must perpetually live in the white light of publicity. Whether the leadership be vested in a man or in a manufactured product, emulation and envy are ever at work.

In art, in literature, in music, in industry, the reward and the punishment are always the same. The reward is widespread recognition; the punishment, fierce denial and detraction.

When a manís work becomes a standard for the whole world, it also becomes a target for the shafts of the envious few. If his work be mediocre, he will be left severely alone - if he achieves a masterpiece, it will set a million tongues a-wagging.

Jealousy does not protrude its forked tongue at the artist who produces a commonplace painting. Whatsoever you write, or paint, or play, or sing, or build, no one will strive to surpass or to slander you unless your work be stamped with the seal of genius.

Long, long after a great work or a good work has been done, those who are disappointed or envious, continue to cry out that it cannot be done.

Spiteful little voices in the domain of art were raised against our own Whistler, long after the big world had acclaimed him its greatest artistic genius.

Multitudes flocked to Bayreuth to worship at the musical shrine of Wagner, while the little group of those whom he had dethroned and displaced argued angrily that he was no musician at all.

The little world continued to protest that Fulton could never build a steamboat, while the big world flocked to the river banks to see his boat steam by.

The leader is assailed because he is a leader, and the effort to equal him is merely added proof of that leadership. Failing to equal or to excel, the follower seeks to depreciate and to destroy - but only confirms once more the superiority of that which he strives to supplant.

There is nothing new in this.

It is as old as the world and as old as human passions - envy, fear, greed, ambition, and the desire to surpass.

And it all avails nothing.

If the leader truly leads, he remains - the leader. Master-poet, master-painter, master-workman, each in his turn is assailed, and each holds his laurels through the ages.

That which is good or great makes itself known, no matter how loud the clamor of denial.

That which deserves to live - lives."

Case closed.

I could give a $H17 what others say in other Communities. As long as they keep their thoughts out of our Community, I'm completely happy.

LOL, Honda guys are funny..

But this guy right here is on a mission... Not sure what his problem is but he must have had a pretty sad childhood or something. He is obsessed with the Z/28.
I even think he is or was a camaro5 forum member.

If that's who I think it is, he was a member and liked manipulating. He's not much welcome anymore.

As long as the hate is outside this Community, I don't really care.
