RX7 vs civic/integra/rsx

Hey all, i am new here, please go easy on me!
IU am in need of a car that will beat all of my frineds stupid civics and integra's. most believe that the big H or A decal they put on their back window adds 5000HP, most of them only have a fart connon, some might have a cold air intake and a chip and a few other things that add extreamly little HP.
so what do you guys think?? is the RX7 up to it?

the integra is faster. Mazda really dropped the ball on the rotary engine. Even my turbo model runs a best of 19.5 in the 1/4 mile.

I am about to start crying that was so funny. Yeah, totally dropped the ball, how the hell did you pull off a 19.5? I've only gotten 22.3s, the drag strip clock actually reset it took so long, my friend was timing it so thats how we figured it out. I was trapping about 60 or so. I thought it was good.

coming from a Hond bckground I dunno if your friends re just ricers or wht.

but a 200 hp all motor, short-geared-tranny'd, hybrid Bseries motor'd, 2000 pound Civic hatchback will smoke most RX7's unless you have thrown some money into the RX7. Heh, not even mentioning a properly tuned turbo Bseries motor'd civic with what, 350+hp...?

the lightweight civic hybrids (integra or prelude motor in a civic) can be quick as hell, but only 1 in 100 modified civics are of the caliber to put up a good fight with an RX7 turbo... but they are out there.

there is no use talking about posers, there are posers in every type of car... ford probes, chevy camaro v6's, eagle talon fwd's, honda accords, mazda 323's and even miatas and RX7's...

its so SAD too!

If you read and actually understood the first post, it ends with the question, "is the RX7 up to it?". Now how the hell does your post answer that question? And what do you know about RX-7s? You don't even own one!
