why does everyone hate on the r18 when someone asks a question about beating this or that car. "its and economy car" so? i have an EX manual and i'm having fun running it. i'm hanging with those old sports cars like the 99 si and gsr and some new ones. stop hatin on a r18

I agree, be proud what you have. An R18 is better than alot of cars out there. But thats just nature of things when someone asks on how to improve the R18 civic si just comes out

because some SI drivers thinks their cars are a ferrari and start to feel that everyone is out there to race them because SI are faster than lightning. When in reality most people can even defferentiate between the models because to them its just a civic

Lol this thread wreaks of SI-bitterness already..

Yes, the R18 is a fine engine. Yes, I drove and LX before my SI.

It just gets old when people ask "can the R18 beat this" and this and this.. all the time. Sadly, if the car you're asking about isn't slow as crap, then the answer is no, you cannot beat it.

Dont' get me wrong.. it's annoying seeing "Can an SI beat this" threads all the time as well. But what's really annoying is when some of you guys post up blatant lies about kills when the R18 could never even hope to touch that.

And to be honest.. I would be skeptical of an R18 beating a 99 Si or a GSR unless it was modded quite a bit.
