well, the problem is that the cars rear end as well as some body components have to be modified so it can handle that kind of power. the pic of that M3 and civic was made before it had that kind of power. the owner of this beast never gives it full throttle because his affraid that something bad may happen, but this winter he`ll start working on the modifications so it`ll be faster then the civic and many others.

Exactly what I thought. I suppose it could have holed another piston though................

Roops.

Wait a minute, the car supposedly has 700HP, but the hatchback Civic beats it running an 11.9? The power to weight ratio would put it into the 10s. It sounds kind of fishy to me.
