Is it just me, or does anyone else think the EVO guys did not try very hard when driving the Boss 302? Incompetence? or bias? I have driven Hondas modified for Street Prepared class SCCA competition and they were quick, but no way could they match any of the new Mustangs on any road course with a decent driver in both cars. Other opinions?

As a car guy I want so much to agree with you but this little R is a surprise to many.

60 to 0 in 107 feet
That's the SAME as the Porsche 918 Spyder !

1.02g in the corner
That's the SAME as the McLaren MC4-12C

Top speed 170mph
Same as a Corvette's

All this from a $35k Honda Civic hatch back
It may or may not kick everybody's ass on the track but it's dangerous to discount any car that can generate those kinds of numbers.
And not wrong to match it up with the Mustang on the track.
