    that post doesnt really apply to a car that has a suspension built for 168mph stock
    maybe for an SI or regular civic

    WTH? That post has ZERO mention of suspension considerations. Subjecting a car to consistent speeds well over 100mph should require drivetrain prep and maintenance. Checking and replacing fluids before, between, and after would be appropriate.

    At some point I probably will. Here's the path thus far, even though you haven't asked

    1978 Grand Prix - 6cyl/AT dash entirely dead, v6 automatic was a dog but served A-to-B well enough
    1985 Bonneville Brougham - 8cyl/AT everything worked, v8 automatic, a boat that could peel out between gas station visits (overlapped with below)
    1984 Camaro Z28 - 8cyl/AT my first modded car, 5.0 H.O. TH350 trans with high stall shift kit, Holley 650 dbl pmp, I/H/E, 3.73 posi - a fast pain in the ass
    1985 Cherokee Chief - 4cyl/MT my first manual, 2.5l 5 speed, remarkably durable and capable off roader - so much off roading
    1994 Escort LX - 4cyl/AT - cheap, reliable, tossable, slow but handled like it was on rails, parking brake slides were scary predictable
    2002 Protege ES - 4cyl/AT - modded with T3/.60 and grenaded 2 months later racing a friends boxster
    2005 350Z - 6cyl/MT - beautiful and engaging to drive, but also impractical, heavy, and slow. Everyone loved it except me (overlapped with below)
    2002 WRX - 4cyl/MT - reliable as hell, modded extensively 300whp from 40k-110k miles, then 450whp till 195k, stock block - sold to my brother (still get seat time)
    2002 Z06 - 8cyl/MT - light, fast, cheap to insure, astoundingly good mpg, sold for more than I paid for it 2 years later (overlapped with above)
    2011 EvoX GSR - 4 cyl/MT - essentially the best of both worlds from the WRX and Z06, modded to 450whp, sold for more than I owed 3 years later (overlapped with below)
    2012 Cooper S - 4cyl/MT - burger tuned, tossable fun, good on gas, but needed more room when I bought a dog
    2013 Clubman S - 4cyl/MT - burger tuned, slightly larger to fit dog, unreliable (2 ECU's, 2 sets of coils).... but wife/kids happened so the mini had to go
    2005 Civic LX coupe - 4cyl/MT - stock, reliable as hell, 40mpg forever (overlapped with above)
    bringing me to.... the current cars
    17 Civic SI - 4cyl/MT so far so good, peppy, but far from fast
    17 Traverse - 6cyl/AT fits the whole family and our stuff

    More than half of those cars ran open exhausts, big fan of modding intelligently. I've blown 2 engines, 1 transmission, and 3 rear differentials. I'm sure at some point I will wind up owning a hybrid, hell possibly a prius. But it won't be anytime soon.

    I paid msrp no accessories. I am just telling the truth how the car drives , no need to be insulting forum members. One day you might drive one and you will see. Good luck moding your 1.5t it will never compete against a CTR.

    I have driven the CTR, my buddy Brian has one. It is nice but overpriced even at MSRP. I have owned several cars which were faster. I had a c5z06 and 450whp EvoX which I grew tired of and sold. But of all my past cars....one was kept close. I sold the best of them to my younger brother and that old 2002 WRX with EFR7163 turbo on the stock EJ205 puts down 450whp. It will run away from a CTR on the highway and of course from a dig.

    But the public roads you are driving on were not meant for 168mph.....

    Wow way to butcher sentance structure. In any case....
    Your posts seem awful aggressive and overbearingly confident.
    Are you trying to compensate for something?

    19' CW CTR #22487
    A Type R has only 8% more torque and 11% greater power to weight ratio than a stock Si with nothing but a $500 Ktuner and a basemap. The Si enjoys this level of performance while also having heated seats, a sunroof, is 10-15 grand cheaper, and is 228 pounds lighter than the CTR. Even when tuned the Si still gets over 40mpg(CTR gets 22-28).

    In terms of raw track performance at the expense of everything else the CTR is great. But in a competition where performance, comfort, and practicality are all taken into consideration it's simply no contest which car is the better buy.

    My $0.02.
