Nothing is going to get changed get over it already, The fastest stock time tested we use from a credible dource And its just that d8kple, simply because you failed to get a time thats as good as thd time shown here, that doesnt change anything, Doesnt matter how good or bad a driver you are, Get over it Nobody who would be honest would write THAT MUCH about a stick time to be removed without some dishonest motive.

Vr4 and fk8 owner TRUTH  2m ago

Excuse me? I did not tell you to remove or change anything! I was speaking on this ridiculous Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 vs Type R race that was brought up, as I own both.

And for your information, I am a good driver, 13.73 @ 104.6mph is a VERY quick time for a stock FK8, most people run 14s! Did you miss the part where I said the FK8 is a better car all around besides acceleration???

I don't have a motive, and I was truing to explain WHY the 1994 to 1999 VR-4 is faster, which it is, by quite a bit. I don't care about what's posted here, I don't live online! I'm just stating facts.

I came here to check out stats on my 2017 Type R, and just noticed that there was a debate about the VR4 and FK8, and own both so chimed in.

Have a nice day.

Vr4 and fk8 owner TRUTH  2m ago

Ok, i came here to look at lap times for my type r, but i actually own both a 2017 Civic Type R and a 1998 3000GT VR4, both are stock.

You'd have to be insane to think the Type R could beat ANY VR4 in a straight line race or drag race, im dying here! The 94 to 99 3000GT VR4 makes an underrated 320hp @6000rpm and 315tq @ 2500rpm from a twin turbo 3.0L V6. It beat the 300ZX TT and RX7 TT by car lengths.

So, more power, more displacement and the AWD advantage. It also has a much better geared 6 speed manual than the shortly geared type r.
My VR4 dynod 293@whp. Stock. Mitsu underrated the numbers, in the UK its rated at 280bhp@whp.

My VR4 ran a best of 13.08@104.2mph and usually runs a 13.1@103. My FK8 ran a best of 13.73@104.6mph and averages 13.8@104mph.

From a dig the VR4 jumps ahead of my FK8, by the 1/4m mark its about 4 or 5 car lengths ahead, and by 160mph the type r is about 1.5 to 2 cars behind depending on the VR4s launch. The VR4 pulls like 3 or 4 cars off the jump on the FK8. Ive done this race like 10 times, different launches, the VR4 always wins.

The best recorded time for an FK8 was the pre production car that ran 0 to 60 in 4.9 and the quarter mile in 13.5@108. The stock ones after were all high 13s @102 to 104.
Motorweek ran a stock 1994 VR4 to 60 in 4.9s and the quarter mile in 13.5@103mph. Motortrend got 0 to 60 in 4.8s and the quarter in 13.5@102. Motortrends FK8 ran a best of 14.0s @ 103. Thats a .5s difference in et.
If you average out published times, the VR4 comes out as faster by quite a bit. The et is huge. The FK8 cant close that gap!

Having said all this, the FK8 is the better by far, despite being slower in a straight line.
Sorry Honda guys, the 20 year old VR4 is faster than the fk8 Type R by quite a bit. BUT the FK8 rapes it around a track.

Jesus, what a stupidly obvious comparison though. A TT V6 with more power displacement and AWD vs a FWD 4cyl single turbo with FWD...only an idiot would think the FK8 would win that!!!!!

08 z owner   2m ago

@fastest laps - the vr4 dynos at 285 to 290 whp, thats a well known fact.

Ive seen this race, the VR4 has 2 cars on the fk8 by 150mph from a dig, consistently and the VR4 is still pulling.

. How can you not beleive that? The VR4 has AWD, and a 3.0L v6 twin turbo with 285 to to 290whp so about 345 to 350hp at the crank, my friend has both, a 2017 FK8 and a 1998 VR4, both stock. The VR4 runs 13.1s@103 to 104mph, the FK8 runs 13.8s to 13.9s@101 to 104mph. Thats a .8s to .7s difference, the VR4 is about 5 car lengths ahead of the type r at the 420 mark, it cant close the gap. Sorry, its a fact, the VR4 is faster any way you play it as far as acceleration. I own a stock 2008 hr z, and his VR4 beats me by the same amount to 150mph.

All these commenters are correct, im the 3rd person to verify this!!!

User avatar

No bs  2m ago

This is the most overrated car in existence as far as acceleration times, did anyone read FK8 ownes post??? Car and Driver got a 13.9 @ 104, Motortrend got a 14.2@102.

He brought up the 3000GT VR4/GTO TT, no idea why, but he has a point - i checked the page for that car. Published figures show 0 to 60 in 4.8s and the 1/4m in 13.4s @ 103mph. The page doesnt show thay.

The VR4 would absolutely destroy a 2017 / 2018 FK8 in a straight line from from a dead stop to top speed, and from a rolling start - ive seen that exact race. He even posted a 13.2@102 run in a stock VR4, no FK8 can pull that off.

Ive driven both the VR4 and the FK8, i own a Nissan 300ZX TT, another car thats got bs numbers on its page. The VR4 is much faster than my z stock to stock, but my z is much faster than an FK8 stock to stock.

Driving skill? I see FK8s running 13.9s to 14.2s @ 100 to 103mph all day long. I have also seen bone stock VR4s run 12.9s @ 105mph...
The bottom line is that the FK8 is slow as far as acceleration, and if the moderator wants to post bullshit times from a pre production car so be it. What a joke, fanboying at its finest here.
The lap times are accurate. The acceleration is not. And im in the UK, we have the 320bhp version. Its slow.

While I would be the first to agree that FK8 is overrated in certain aspects of its advertised performance (remember that sketchy Nurburgring time?), I would find it suuuper hard to believe that a 20+ year old Mitsubishi 3000GT would beat it in a drag race. No way.


User avatar

Vr4 and fk8 owner TRUTH  2m ago @FastestLaps

I own both, no contest, the VR4 is faster, see my post above. 0 to 150mph, the FK8 is 2 cars behind my stock 98 VR4.
How the hell would you think a tt v6 with awd could beat a fwd 4cyl single turbo with less power????


User avatar

FastestLaps  2m ago @Vr4 and fk8 owner TRUTH

Pre-facelift VR4 has less power (20 hp less) and non-VR4 3000GT has 40 hp less. At high speeds (150 mph) 4 wheel drive is disadvantage, not advantage plus there is high likelihood that engine is not producing 100% of its claimed power after 25 years.


User avatar

Vr4 and fk8 owner TRUTH  2m ago @FastestLaps

First off, I was not speaking about the pre 1994 models, they have a 5 speed and less power (300hp / 307tq), and stock to stock would probably beat an FK8 from a dig until 100 to 120mph when the FK8 would pass it, I had a 1992 VR-4, it was much slower than my 1998 VR-4, ran a best of 13.69 @ 101.1mph. It dynod at 248@whp. Also, the base model 3000GT is shit, FWD with 222hp, of course that car would lose to an FK8.

My 1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 has 124,000 miles on it, and when I last dynod it it made 292@whp, and that was at 119,856 miles...so these cars don't lose power when taken care of, the guy I go to specializes in the 3000GT platform, he has confirmed that even high mileage (150k plus) 1994 and up VR-4s don't 'lose power' if you maintain them correctly.
Also, he hasn't seen a '94 and up VR-4 make less than 280@whp, the 2g VR-4s were underrated, the 320HP is BS, do the math - he worked in Japan at Mitsubishi in the 90s and knows these cars inside and out. Mitsubishi knew these cars were producing about 345 to 355hp at the crank, some stock ones dyno 310 to 320@whp, and no, that's not a typo. They were going after the R33 Skyline GTR, and Nissan lied about the numbers on the Skyline as well, they also made about 350hp at the crank.

You don't need to believe anything, but I OWN BOTH CARS. I also am familiar with the 3000GT platform AND high powered FWD cars, I owned an 11s EG hatch years ago.

I'll say it again - a 1994 to 1999 3000GT VR-4 is in a different league than an FK8 as far as straight line speed, think more like C5 Corvette level acceleration, or R33/R34 Skyline GTR acceleration.
PLAY BY PLAY, from a dig, the VR4 jumps about 3 car lengths ahead due to AWD, and due to way more displacement, power and more aggressive gearing, is about 4 to 5 car lengths ahead of the FK8 at the 1/4m. The FK8 has GREAT top end, so it makes up about 2 to 3 of those car lengths, but it does NOT have enough top end to close the gap. And at 150mph, the VR-4 is already 2 car lengths or so ahead, so the AWD disadvantage doesn't come into play, plus the FK8 is actually pulling less hard than the VR-4 at that speed. AGAIN, I own BOTH, and have had plenty of seat time in both.

Or think of it this way -
1998 3000GT VR-4 - 13.1s @ 103mph (non generous average)
2017 Civic Type R - 13.7s @ 105mph (generous average)

Thats .6 seconds, or about 5.5 car lengths, that the VR-4 has on the Type R. The Type R is traveling 2mph faster, so it easily makes up about 2 or 3 car lengths of the VR-4s lead - but it's not traveling fast enough to make up that much of a gap. And this is being generous on the FK8s part, as my VR-4 has run 13.0s @ 104 many times.

It's simple science. The VR-4 has AWD that allows it to win immediately, the Type R has FWD that ****s it up immediately. VR-4 has more power, more torque, and twin turbos vs a smaller displacement single turbo engine. Yes, the Type R weighs about 600lbs less and has a better power to weight ratio, so you'd think it may win, but the VR-4s AWD, gearing, power / torque / displacement gives it too many advantages.

The 1994 to 1999 VR-4 is known to pull flat 13s @ 103 to 105mph with a good driver, and the 1994 to 1996 lighter Stealth TT is capable of 12.9s @ 104 to 106mph.
I just don't understand how you can't see this. Even the motoring press has gotten better numbers overall for the VR-4 than the FK8. Again - best run in my 2017 Type R (so far) is a 13.73 @ 104.6mph, my best run in my 1998 3000GT VR-4 (so far) is a 13.08@104.2mph...thats basically the same trap with a .65s difference in ET, so about 5.3 car lengths at the 1/4m mark.

Make sense?

Fastedee  3w ago @FastestLaps

The 7:43 car was nearly as fast at Dottinger (at 257 kph) as an Evora 400(265 kph). The Lotus dynoed at 407 bhp and weighs similarly to the Honda with a 4.6 0-100 and 15.5 0-200. My guess is the fwd record Honda would crush any 3000gt with a 5.0 0-100 and 16.5-16.7 0-200 with a 31-32 0-250.Quarter mile would probably be 13-13.2 at 110-112 mph for suspect R. They probably changed the engine mapping to get 365-375 bhp in that Civic. 12.9 is not possible for 320 bhp 3000gt. 12.9 car probably was making 340-350 bhp.R32 was somehow a bit quicker with only 276....sure. Demuro on his show dynoed a bone stock R32 at 280 bhp at the wheels.

The 1/4m time is way off, PLEASE CHANGE IT!!! . Car and Driver tested a hopped up preproduction model, and when retested in a production car got a much slower time.

Car and Driver- 13.9@ 104mpm
Motortrend- 14.2@102mph

https://www.caranddriver.com/comparisons/2017-ford-focus-rs-vs-2017-honda-civic-type-r-comparison-test-final-scoring-performance-data-and-complete-specs-page-4

http://www.motortrend.com/news/honda-civic-type-r-2018-car-of-the-year-finalist/amp/

See above. I own a stock 2018 FK8, ran a best of 13.81@103.3mph. Own a stock 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, ran a 13.21@104.1mph.

https://youtu.be/vFEYkgOZdC4 - stock vr4, 13.2@ 102.7mph.

The FK8 is slower than all its AWD competiton and 90s JDM cars including the 300ZX TT, Supra TT, etc.
The FK8 is blistering fast around a track but supbar in a straight line acceleration.
Please correct this info, a stock FK8 would need modifications to run a 13.5@108mph, that trap speed is insanely WRONG. Highest trap I've seen is 104mph.
Thanks.

I have, And I wouldnt change it, See there something called skill, Everyone hss it, but some are higher then others, enabling them to get faster times, Why do you think some people get slower times then others? And faster ones.

Plus it may have been a hopped up press version, Its not like companys havent done that before, But unless you can prove it, then its all hearsay.

On this site we post the fastest tested times from credible sources regardless if randoms dont believe it, always been that way. So as long as those numbers are accurate to the source, There staying up there, ps, Thats also not yhe fastes time its done..
