Wow, nice job reppin da R18 :sadwavy:

That doesn't surprise me, the R18 is a slow car. I've never driven a Celica but it certainly looks like it'd be a quicker car
my car doesnt feel slow to say the least. its still a quick car, just not a super car like the Si, but i got an ex for a car and that what im working with.

wut i ment is that its not as good as the si, but alot of SI owners think that their cars are super cars compared to the R18
My Si is my beater, my 350z is my weekend driver (neither are supercars), the Porsche Carrera GT would be a supercar. A Civic is FARRRRRR from ever being a super car. Civic owners thinking they own super cars are ricers. lol

Haha I wish the SI was a supercar!! I guess it's all relative - I had an LX (auto) and it felt very, very underpowered. The SI feels about what a normal car should be. Because it only makes power at high revs I find avg, boring cars routinely being hard to keep up with unless I'm redlining it. The RX-8, speed3 and speed6 I tested about a week ago all felt like 'quick' cars. Anything I beleive over 300 WHP and under 3300 lbs or so would most likely feel like a 'fast' car to me.
