This is a seriously built, grassroots road race machine. I have owned this car since 1997, and have been roadracing it since 1999 with both EMRA and NASA.
The car is a 1995 Honda Civic DX hatchback; It has been stripped down and all glass except for the windshield is lexan. The drivetrain has been replaced with a 2002 RSX-S drivetrain (K20A2 with 6 speed). The engine has been upgraded with Type R cams and intake manifold, and a Kpro ecu. The engine is turbocharged, with a Greddy twinscroll system. A ReidSpeed custom built water injection system is used to control detonation and keep the incoming pressurized air cool. I run a custom 3" straight thru side exit exhaust. Cold air is drawn through a filter situated where the drivers side headlight used to be. A Fluidyne racing radiator was installed to keep the engine cool during the hottest races. The final drive has been replaced with a 5.06 and Type R lsd. The suspension on the car is by DMS (fully adjustable coilovers). It has an adjustable SRR rear swaybar with control arms. The front brakes are Legend GS calipers with Prelude VTEC rotors. I use 15"x7" Konig wheels, with 225-45-15 Toyo RA-1 tires. The car is equipped with a full cage, window nets, 6 point harnesses, and a kill switch. it is a serious racecar. Its current weight is about 2100 lbs, with driver, ready to race. It currently dynos at over 300 whp, depending on the program/boost setting.
below, please find a link to an incar video of me racing at Summit Point last year; car is at 2200 lbs, and has the NA engine installed (206 whp). I finished first in class, and well up in the big bore group!:
I truly believe, that at VIR North course, i can be one of the fastest cars, period (FWD, AWD, RWD). my car is powerful, very light, and very well set up. I hope to get the chance show what a really fast FWD car can do!
