I'm thinking back into my past driving experience and not once can I recall ever having super tight turns that I need to race through. On the other hand, I can give countless races at stoplights that go fairly straight.
I would agree that the Civic would take the Tahoe in a course that's all corners and turns, AutoX. But really, that's not something most people will ever do.

^^^ DJ i stating in tight turns a civic or such would be in a tree while his huge truck would be taking it gracefully. Please lets see this. I can't wait to see his "drift".

Body roll can be graceful. Rather comfortable too (ride in a Lincoln Town Car, you'll fall asleep at the wheel)

Since I bought it and blew the motor and transmission...

The engine has been replaced and bored .30 over, throttle body spacer, timing advanced, and computer re tuned (actually it was swapped with a tuned one to accommodate my engine changes. As well as Bosch platinum-4 plugs, MSD race wires (for the LT1, but they worked on mine) Accel coil, rotor, and distributor.

The transmission has received...

A trans-go shift kit (chirps all 3 gears). .500 boost valve, corvette servo (for the punchy 1,2.. it's actually a little larger than the vette servo- it's a TCI), and a few other tricks.

Front and rear posi gear's @ 4:10.

2000 Limited suspension, a little more tight, less prone to body-roll.

You can have 1000 HP, if you're an idiot, you will lose the race.

Anyone is welcome to come to Worcester, MA and race me on a straight track, or a windy one.

You can even have a head start.

A few years back I had a nice modded 97' 4 door Tahoe and to be honest,I seriously think if I was able to some how race against it,I would be able to take it in my current vehicle which is an fairly stock damn Honda Element. icon_lol.gif I do know I can easily pull away from slightly modded Tahoes and such in some twistys with my Element,as I've done it quite a few times.icon_lol.gif

^^ I honestly believe that a Hoe has nothing on any low 4 cylinder on a Auto X. Track. So if you think you can out corner it take to an Auto X event. And run it.

I wish we all lived near the same track so we could settle this on the track.

It's all in the driver. I know for sure I will smoke you in a light-to-light or 1/4 mile.

And on any kind of twistie/turn track you will surely either apply the brakes, or pull your parking brake to attempt a turn @ high speed.

And let me just tell you, body roll is very helpful for shifting the weight of the vehicle.

(jolt left, cut it right, 3/4 throttle= magic).

^^ Or i will down shift and then brake like they do in Auto X. Not everyone drifts there are other methods to driving out there. And of course you will eat me in a 1/4 miles. I have a 4cyl. I wasn't made for quarter miles. Not all twistie/turn driving is ebraking contrary to popular belief.
