So you're saying that if you built a car to 600+ hp you wouldn't be proud? Because I know I sure as hell would. I like it because it's different. Not everyday you see a FWD car with staggered rims lol.

Oh, and btw I like the music.

I wouldn't be stupid enough to spend time / money on a 600hp FWD car
If I had the resources available to me, I'd DEFINATLEY work that kind of power into a RWD or at least AWD car.. It's just stupid and pointless to put it in a FWD if you ask me

forkee
too loud. even tho it has 600hp it sounds like just every other 90hp civic with loud muffler. i wouldnt be proud of that. loser almost hit a dog too? wtf?? u dont just jump on the street and start racing down it.

How can you call someone stupid when you don't know him, and have never met him? While it true that if he had put the same money into a rwd/awd platform, it woulda been one quick car but why be like everyone else? I think it's cool that he's trying to break new ground in the FWD world. You look like an ass when you bash someone for trying idea's that everyone says can't be done. So many great things have come from those who refused to listen to the people that

So many great things have come from those who refused to listen to the people that say "it can't be done" or "that's stupid and pointless". Cars have come such a long way because of folks with that guy's attitude. Saying that you would have spent your money otherwise is fine, but don't attack the guy for doing what others said couldnt, and shouldnt be done.

*gets off

there are many things that we have come to know and accept. Most rational people will tell you that putting that much hp in a FWD car is pointless, period. It's called physics. Sure innovation is great, but it has to be smart, it has to be useful. Why do you think that you never see a mid-engined fwd car? Because companies aren't stupid enough to waste money on such a fruitless endeavor. I agree that new things are good, but some things are just plain stupid. 600hp + FWD is pointless. Why not put 2000hp in a FWD car? It's all useless once you get above a specific hp rating anyway. Don't try and defend this guy by saying he's innovative, he just has a lot of money and dosen't know where to invest it. Innovation is a wonderful thing, when it's useful. Henry Ford and the assembly line, useful. Audi and AWD rally cars, useful. Antilock brakes, useful, too much HP for the wheels that do the steering braking and acceleration to handle, moronic. Sorry man, it's nothing against you, I just really think that the guy with the del sol is mis-informed
creamed_corn
You know the thing that would bother me the most about driving a car like that? The turning circle. You pretty much **** over your handling in order to get big enough meat on there for traction.
celiracer
I think its ugly. I'd never drive a delsol in my life. They are weird looking. And he almost hit a dog. Thats another thing. And plus how do you know he spent all his own money on that car. He prob had his parents pay for everything. And Forkee is right don't just jump onto a street and go racing around. Also sounds like he doesn't know how to drive it. Kept burning the clutch on the starts.

Also the gear ratio's suck A$$ really bad.
DJWashington
Well lets see here, typpical honda and honda driver. Zip-tied ecu to car. Sounds like butt. Rides the clutch. Wreckless driving. Danger to dogs. And it makes children cry!!! Personally, I love it! smile.gif I would be proud to have it.
RedSunCelica
the car is a work of art. one thing i dont understand why isthere so much hate. i bet you if it was a 600+hp celica everyone would be giving the guy props. also, any car can be made to go fast FWD RWD or AWD just a matter of how you set it up.

i wouldn't give them props for a 600 hp celica, i would tell them they should have put their money into a better base
celicaGT96
even though you^^^^may be right, there is still some people like me who really love their celicas. Im not saying that you dont its just that I didnt buy my celica because I was settling for it, I was looking for a 6th gen, and I love that none of my friends own a celica, better yet that theres only 3 celicas including mine that Ive seen here in my city, in the past year.
Im a fan of alot of cars but I wouldnt mind working for that kind of money to put into my car. 600whp on a celi is rare, sooooo I would surely give props to that guy for pulling it off.......he oviously wanted it bad enough to put all that in his car.
Bigmeanbulldog55
lol, this Honda hating is getting retarded. Seriously guys, you all are just like the American car guys. Close minded. As far as it being a FWD, it's a class racer. People dump tons of money in all the different classes of racing. If the guy wants to make a 600hp FWD, that's fine. It's not really going to effect 1/4 times that much. Drag racers will tell you that a RWD hooks up better than a FWD or an AWD at the track, and can get better times. But really, it's not too far off. This guy probably tears it up at the local track in the FWD class, probably locally the RWD and V8 classes too. And when it comes down to it, that's all that matters.

oh I'm not saying I wouldn't give him props, it takes a lot of work to get to that point. And I LOVE my Celica, looked for over 3 years before I found mine lol. I guess I was just tryin to say that in my opinion that kind of time and effort could have been better applied elsewhere. I guess I'm biased because I hate drag racing to all ends and think it's the only kind of racing that is more boring than NASCAR. 600whp on any FWD is pretty pointless, but to me a good car should be one that is good on the road course and on the legal road.

But when I start a project car, sad to say the Celi will probably go to make garage space
