: What the hell it was! A Honda Civic with strange acceleration!

After watching "Resident Evil 3D", which was very impressive, I was driving back to the home. I took an up hill ramp to join to a highway. The ramps here in Valley area are usually 2 lines, but these two lanes merge to be a single lane when ramp joins to the highway. My RPM was at 3000 and the speed about 45MPH and I was accelerating smoothly. In rear review mirror I observed a car about 75 ft behind me but on the other lane, which seemed to be accelerating fast... Because I knew that there is a merge of these two lanes ahead I decided to accelerate more to ensure that I would reach the merge safely before he reaches to me at the merge point, which would be a dangerous situation for both of us. I increased the RPM till 4500 and my speed rapidly reached to 70MPH, but it seems that it was too late and too little.... The next thing that I can remember is observing a blue Honda Civic from my driver window, and he passed me very fast..... I had reached to the merge point before him and I was inside the single lane ramp, but he drove out of the ramp lines and passed me and merged to the highway.... If I knew that the he is an stubborn reckless driver that is driving a very sharp car I would reduce my speed in first place so that he could pass me easily and then we both would safely merge to the highway! But I had underestimated that Civic!

I consider my STS as a very strong and sharp car. Definitely this is not the fastest car on the road. So far I have observed dozen of F-Body cars in roads that were much faster than my STS and could easily pass me, but not a Civic!
That Civic was ultra fast!!! Even if I floored the gas, I would not have a big chance against him.... I am still in shock of that Civic! What the hell it was!!! It was a eight gen Civic.... As far as I know an stock Civic should not be so fast! There should be dozen of aftermarket upgrades done on that Civic... I really have no idea about that Civic. The only thing I know is it was super fast!

doesnt matter how fast that civic was or what he had done on it, that guy was an idiot.

Civics are very light and with a decent turbo can out run a modified CTS-V with over 500bhp

Sure he was, however that Civic left me in shock for a while!

Huh! That is crazy... and what if that light poorly reinforced Civic loses his control because of a mild wind?!

The same thing that happens to everyone else if they exceed their aerodynamics
