i JUST stumbled on this vid of a forte sx racing a civic si

maybe the sx has something special in it?:D:D:rolleyes:
That's an old Si, which only had 160hp. Missing 3rd didn't help, but that didn't lose him the race.
It is a canadian Si, which is the equivalent of a US civic EX. It has only 127hp, and on top of that, the driver missed 3rd gear.

The video shows how slow the Forte SX is... a 127hp/107lb-ft/5sp car can almost keep up with a 173hp/168lb-ft/6sp car. Korean horses suck!

LOL. Yes, but keep in mind that the Forte is at least 600 lbs heavier than that Civic, and the Civic is geared better. You are right though. The Forte does look slow even though he is easily pulling away. Plus, I had to laugh when the Civic guy swore in French at missing third gear. That was funny.
Of course the weight is a big factor, but I still think the 2.4L engine doesn't pull like it should.

Agreed. I could see the Mustang lift on the throttle and get back into it more than a couple of times. He was clearly just playing with the Koup.
Yep, I saw it too... He probably wanted his friend with the Forte to feel good about his new ride, haha.
