Trying to launch these cars on anything other than at least summer tires is pointless, imo.

I was able to run 13.9 with a CAI, adj shocks, and 18" drag radials.

While I dont doubt the Accord will be reliable, it is simply boring looking in comparison to the 2014 6.

The mpg of the Accord V6 is really nice though, but the lack of a manual trans is a bummer.
