    I believe that's a repost. I remember seeing that here when we were discussing gymkhanas.

    shits horrible right?

    i think its the prelude drivers i hate more than the cars.
    like my buddy with his 160hp vs my hatch with 108hp and i beat him in a drag race from a dig. then he said there was no way id beat him in turns. no problems i outran him. took us 3 trys to even get a good run cause he lost it twice trying to keep up.

    1 - Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's wrong.

    2 - At least the guy is participating in a motorsport event of some kind. Ricers don't do events, they refuse to do anything but rev on stock cars at stop lights and "race" in traffic.

    Oh noes! A different driver in a different car performed better on a similar course!

    Again, just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it's wrong.

    Aside from the fact that I've never owned a prelude?

    I don't even know why I bother posting anymore, shit's turning into hater-tech.

    I agree with Pope and Injen. You can say that this event will probably help him "see the light", as there's quite a few people who came from "show" to racing.

    Do I think it's dumb? Yea. But it's not my car. To each his own.

    That S14 was sexy though.

    I agree. We just need to start banning the fuck out of people who pull that kind of crap.

    gymkhana in a FWD car is almost always an epci failure. it's just too tight and rwd sliding is a huge advantage.

    someone post the mini endo vid... i know its coming.














    oh, and that prelude drive sucks. beyond the fact that its fwd, he's just dragging the ebrake half the time. no idea what hes doing.

    That said, i've seen a few guys in my day come out to autoX, embarrass themselves, and show up a few weeks later with their 20s removed and actually try again and do better. So, maybe this is this kids enlightening.

    I saw a kid in an SVT Focus autocross using the e-brake. It was actually kinda sad. He was significantly slower than the Fit, and we all know how much the fit sucks.

    I think it should be required to do some kind of autosport to buy a car that's sporty. Much like how Ferrari makes you go to their school to buy their cars, then we'd have a much larger community of enthusiasts, and more support. Hell, Honda finally got into grassroots racing just a few months ago. Imagine if they'd been supporting grassroots racing 12-15 years ago...

    And anyone who is going to ask, yes, if you can provide the results to satisfy the requirements, HRL is worth it.
