    I feel safer in my Integra than a Corvette.

    Why's that? the frame is more rigid than the C5 Corvette's and it does still have crumple zones and airbags. The fiberglass may not crumple/absorb as well as sheet metal but you're not necessarily going to die from a collision just because of what the body is made out of.

    MUCH PROPS TO THE ELISE!... 1.8 l in a car that weighs a little over 1400 lbs... :D take 400 lbs out.. and make it reach about 240 hp at wheels... AND IT WINS!!

    its specs are similar to the evo 8 RS... handeling, 0-60, 1/4 is a little faster in the vette, similar braking...

    and the evo is 10k cheaper, and being a turbo car, is way eaisier to get an extra 100 hp out of with just a couple minor boost upgrades.


    and the dsm will probably last you 100k before the entire intrior decides to fall apart like every other chevy on the road....
