first of all...lemme say YES!!! man that is so awesome! to tell you the truth i never doubted the ability of the new civic even if it isnt the monster killer it used to be. I would have really liked to see a US spec civic Si in this situation considering they are kinda the same car. i wonder if it would have done as well and maybe would have quelled some of the griping about how sissy-mary it is. personally i love the Si and think its the perfect all around vehicle. any opinions?

I think the USDM Civic Si would have done equally as well. It might even help meet the minimum weight requirement seeing that the two HMRT Civics were OVER-weight !! That surely would have given them even more speed !! One thing about the sedan is that the longer wheelbase apparently gives better cornering. Apparently Kunimitsu himself says the Civic's stability over a turn is better than his DC5 class winner of last year. I really wish this win will help the reputation of the Civic, gain more sales which will convince the doubters in Honda that a performance Civic really sells.
