    I find the grill looks kinda funny, like a big gaping hole or something. I would probably also get some rims with thicker spokes. I really like the drop tho.

    Like the LS1 Camaros/Firebirds that are just as fast with the 4 speed Automatic as they are with the 6 speed manual? That kind of racing with Autos, or something different?

    So... you're going from "any kind of racin'" to 4 cylinder powerplants that run 9 second quarter mile times (if that is what you are talking about, you weren't specific)? I think I mentioned the LS1 powered cars, and one could also state that turbocharged vehicles with automatics hold boost between shifts due to the lockup torque converters. One could ALSO mention that some top fuel dragsters use automatics as well (albiet highly specialized ones) and they run "4 second runs" in the 1/4 mile, specifically.

    So... are you saying "racing with 4 cylinder cars that run 9 seconds in the 1/4 mile" is stupid or are you saying that ALL racing with autos is stupid? Do you include sequential paddle-shifters in with that as well? Can you be more specific?

    Can you also type your replies in some sort of English that I can understand without dissecting, I don't like to assume. I don't "drive" my name from anything, the word is "derive." For assistance please see http://www.m-w.com otherwise just take this one on the chin and move on.

    leave it stock perhaps?

    ricing up 30+k luxury car is just a waste

    soon as you put on a 400 dollar fart can you've ruined your 30k investment

    Fuel dragsters and funny cars do not use transmissions at all, they use computer programmed clutches that have 3 stages. When it finally locks its 1:1.
    But Autos are VERY common in drag racing, more than common, dominant actually.

    Just to let you know chris, I can get you a Euro-Accord grill for a TSX if you were interested, for about $200 CAD shipped.
