Yeah! I just played the video to listen to it while commuting, and found it really interesting that had to watch it at lunch break.

I found it incredible, because what I believe is good engineering isnt actually going for the most complex/over the top solution, Id rather have clever AND simple ways to achieve the end Read more

You should check Savagegeese’s Video where he reviews the chassis in detail, and Mazda Engineers have really well thought and valid reasons for switching to a torsion beam.

I for one, loved the way the did it, the end result is a car that is as good at handling, simpler, lower maintenance and believe it or not, quieter Read more

BWAAAHAHAHAHAHA first comment I see, typical Jalopnik commenter talking about how New vehicle is such a letdown, doesnt respect the tradition, wanted to like it, about how ugly it is...etc

Will save it for future laughs when this thing becomes loved, a future classic and how everybody will reminisce of the times you Read more

Curious how much people be hating this example, it might not be to their taste (because yeah, it has to be 100% stock museum quality unmodded, yet be 5k cheaper than the cheapest one in the country, duh!).

But this Bodykit, is a good one, ITS FUNCTIONAL and its valuable, to some people, especially in the Honda Read more

I honestly read your comment as someone writing this:

“I always find it fascinating that some people appreciate immediate speed. I guess growing up or learning to use a PC in urban areas instills that sort of response. I’ve always disliked Computers with immediate internet speed. It dis-incentivizes you from making Read more

You are leaving out the Mirage hatchback, which was honestly a Civic Type R competitor, the Pajero/Montero was a great body on frame SUV, and the legnum VR4.

Mitsubishi, at least back in the 90s and early 00s made cheap, simple, reliable vehicles.

In Latin American countries they were a hit, because they were reliable, Read more

Well, its not the same by any means, but at least Fuji has taken all their know how regarding color science and have applied it to their Pro/Prosumer DSLRs where you can set up the color mode to mimic as faithful as possible their eterna, etc processes.

Results are good imo, dont have the softness, the natural rollof Read more

Also.. that Formula atlantic 4age would last you about 4000 miles before needing a rebuild.

Ive seen K24s at 300 whp n/a doing daily duties.

Are you crazy? the ‘06-’11 civic IS incredible, stout high revving engine, shares a lot with the JDM only Type R FD2, great suspension and handling and is lightweight.

The 12-15 Si, albeit more heavier, has great handling capabilities and the engine can easily reach 280-300whp n/a with a few mods.

And the new Type R + Read more

I dream of owning a Evo 4-5-6... last year a friend sold a Tommy Makinen 6.5 with lots of goodies for 13k, and the thing had 600whp and it was all complete interior, exterior, in great condition.

I told him, this thing will sell for 30k+ in a couple of years.

lol the EP3 + the 7th gen Civic is such an awful combo haha.

Like in older AND newer generations you could get a base civic with a slow as molasses engine but with the same handling capabilities OR a specced up version with a high rpm vtec fun n/a engine.

In those days you could get the 7th gen civic, which was more Read more

the thing with EP3's in the US is that they came with the crappy ass K20A3 from the base RSX.

Not “real Vtec” as some say, long ass gearbox and none of the euro Type R goodies.

perfectly said. they always have to complain about something to excuse the fact that they wont ever own one. wont commit to it being low, consuming more gas, getting attention, etc.

They want it to be used from the factory with a 10year bumper to bumper warranty, want it to be analogue, under 2500 pounds, with 12 Read more
