      Exactly. Roll bars are only for 1/4 mile times. Everyone knows that.....bro.

      Mid 14's? My car runs mid 14's. I don't see how that's possible with yours, being stock and all.

      And I know the TRUE story behind that roll bar

      yeah, but that was just with a couple of bolt ons, right? so you just put the car right on back to stock. except for the fake bar. you took out everything invisible that made the car perform better, and you left the bar. all that nostalgia and all. thanks for clearing that up.

      Thats a cool little car? What is it???
      Driving a car on the track doesn't really "beat it up". Those cars are a blast on the track.

      Well I guess it depends what you consider "beating up" I suppose. Just have no desire at this point to track the car. Going through tires. Potentially breaking things. Etc etc etc.

      I will agree it's a fun car on the track though with limited time I had. Needs an LSD bad though.

      Not bad, both fenders will need light PDR, and a new bumper and lip is in order.

      Well that's not THAT bad then. Sorry to hear though. At least you didn't wreck it bad and ball it up into a heap of Championship White paint.

      EDIT - my memory IS that bad. It's been ages since I last bothered with a civic. Totally forgot about that.

      Even when you stick a TL engine in the bay of a civic, the battery is still back in there.

      Not the 5th gen Preludes.

      Also the 2nf Gen Integras I think had the battery up front.
