Has anyone in the forum raced with a Civic SI yet?
If you did... How the koup held against the SI?

Keep the 2$. You already won your own bet!:)
Look i wanted to ask the same question for as long as i had my SX, but, i knew tht if i post it here, everyone is gonna kill it. I didn't mean to bash it. but i can think of at least one name to bash it. Just look at the whole "speeding, where do u draw the line" thread.

I am very interested to know who would win.

I think is a legit question, cause we (including me) are always talking crap about Honda's (specially the SI). Aidensgrand lost to an SI by a length of one car, and this was done with an EX! Imagine with an SX that has a CAI and a CAT back exhaust, and I don't think we customize our cars to race with aveo's and smartcars. I hope not!:D

With a little research you can find the answer your looking for in road-tests of both cars in auto magazines. 1/4 mile times favor the SI over the Forte. You have to take into consideration that the Forte is a mass produced-one-size-fits-all economy car while the SI is specifically built from the Civic line for performance (High compression engine and GEARING for acceleration). MPG suffers over the base Civics too. IF Kia were to provide the 200HP GDI 2.4L engine AND gearing to allow for better acceleration than the Forte would become the "shining" example of peppy economy cars.

Well I beat my friend's 2010 Scion tC multiple times. It is completely stock, no TRD parts. I was ahead by a car length and a half.

It's funny, me and my friends all have the competing cars in our "class".

2010 Honda Civic SI [won't race me], 2010 Scion tC and my 2010 Kia Forte Koup.

ive raced an SI... 2 traffic lights, his was an auto apperently cause i took him off the line, after some wheel hop the tires finally grabbed some pavement. it was close, i think i had about a half of cars length ahead of him. also raced a wannabe fast and furious eclipse. that was hysterical! hahaha sitting at the light, dingleberry pulls up, revs the engine, light goes green and boom! about 5 car lengths behind. made sure i gave him the "you suck dont bother racing anymore" 4 way flashers! lol

(i do not condone racing, it is dangerous and illegal) <~~~pysche!

SI should beat stock forte, but SI has a CAI stock, VTEC, and all those compression thingies everyone else talked about. Forte is a beast with the CAI, and exhaust makes it still cheaper than SI, and faster.

ya all SI's are stick.
in my case, i think the kid wasnt too good at shifting and only reason he did beat me was because of his car having more HP and gearing than mine. i was ahead by about 3 car lenghts at one point and about half way thru our little drag, he started to catch me, and then finally beat me. it was fun though

my eventual goal is to run about 400hp then race a vette and win! then give him the 4 way flasher dance! lmao FYI: if youre gonna give someone the 4 way flashers after you beat them, be prepared to fight! it pisses people off to no extent but its funny as hell!
