Track Review 07 FD2 Civic Type R with Tsuchiya
The kind of car which acquires number to the racing car.
I riding in this car, as for feeling first, say that it is the kind of car
which quite acquires number to the racing car. The racing car which is full
in the joy that, not to be the simply fast sufficient racing car, safety
being high, working. Will the word, pliant racing car exactly probably be?
Therefore it is pleasant.
Why when you mention the racing car, as designed everything just in order
to run quite, it means that balance is good.
Body rigidity is high first as a base. Therefore doing circuit travelling,
the body is difficult ヨレ, it meaning that suspension on that will have
been secure, the roll in cornering is little, alignment change is little.
Therefore the tire it can designate to work as secure, the kind of sense of
security which quite is bitten to the road surface is born, it is.
As for the normal car, body rigidity is not high to here, either suspension
is not strong. Therefore, alignment change is easy to occur, immediately
after understeer comes out, to cause the disorder of the behavior that is
easy it changes in oversteer. シビック TYPE R is not such worry first,
don't you think? it is. This is splendid thing.
4 wheels grounding securely in cornering, it is enormous to work. This
already is the level which exceeds common sense of the drive system such as
former FF and 4WD.
It does not mean that the load puts on the front tire 1 wheel outside the
corner even at the time of cornering, like the racing car as distributing
weight well, taken balance, the extent which you are moved. Weight itself
of the car is domesticated well. Therefore, it stops wanting to say, that
it is the car which acquires number to レーシンングカー it is.
This HONDA. Self-confidence and passion of the engineer are felt.
We would like to have buying this car to the many people, how it is not
thought, is, don't you think?, as for HONDA. The user will be, but Imai, as
for HONDA spirits has produced the car that like this is. As for the
engineers, body type probably is what, but this even "This is HONDA" built
up the fact that you say, it is it is not, is? Don't you think? it is the
car which feels that, the will strongly, as for シビック TYPE R.
Also the beginner feeling at rest, as for the instrument which is
stabilized this much enjoy the circuit drive, for the person who disputes 1
second of 1 second and 1000 parts of 100 parts, don't you think? it is the
car of the extent that it is not.

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden will be
aiming to keep off the grass when he heads to Silverstone for the final
round of this year's series on 13 October. But he took time out from his
preparations to have a bit of fun, lining up on the grid with three-time
champ and team-mate Matt Neal on a special mower created by their Team
The Mean Mower is a bit different to Gordon and Matt's Honda Yuasa Racing
Civics. It's based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor, but the regular 20bhp
614cc V-twin engine has made way for a 1,000cc V-Twin from a Honda
Firestorm motorbike. This delivers 110bhp, and gives a power-to-weight
ratio of 520bhp per tonne -- enabling the mower to do 0-60mph in under four
seconds and hit 130mph.
To cope with this huge pace, the regular mower chassis has been replaced
with a chromoly spaceframe. Suspension and wheels from an ATV help Boost the handling, plus there's a
body-hugging racing seat and Alcantara steering wheel with buttons for the
sequential gearbox. This drives the rear wheels via a chain to a rear axle
sourced from a go-kart. Yet this amazing machine can still cut grass.
The steel cutting bed is replaced by a lighter fibreglass version, and
isn't connected to the petrol engine. Instead, two electric motors spin a
3mm wire cable at 4,000rpm -- proper blades could be a bit dangerous at
100mph. The Mean Mower is similar in concept to a Yuasa Racing Civic, which
is taken off the production line in Swindon, Wilts, and heavily modified.
While the chassis and body are retained, the interior is stripped out and a
roll cage fitted. New front and rear sub-frames are installed, as are
racing-spec suspension and brakes. And while the 2.0-litre engine uses the
same block as the old Civic Type R, a turbocharger is added and most of the internals
are changed. Total output is around 330bhp, which allows the Yuasa Civic to
do up to 160mph.
But how would the BTCC racer compare with the Mean Mower on a lap of
Rockingham's National Circuit in Northants? The track is 1.7 miles long,
has a range of corners and plenty of grass that could do with a trim...
"The only way the mower could win round here is to literally cut corners,"
said Matt. "But if it doesn't, it has no chance. In fact, I reckon I could
give it a 40-second head start and still cross the finish line first."
Was Neal right to be so confident? The way the mower stumbled off the
starting line suggested so. Its tall first gear makes for lazy getaways --
be too aggressive and the engine will stall. But once moving, the Mean
Mower soon gets into its stride. In a straight line, it's quite impressive
-- but the narrow track makes it tricky through corners.
Still, after 40 seconds, the mower had completed over a third of a lap --
leaving the car with plenty of catching up to do. In fact, the Civic didn't
have the mower in its sights until it rounded the penultimate corner. This
was going to be close. As the BTCC racer entered the final hairpin, the
Mean Mower was exiting it and heading down the home straight -- just a few
hundred metres from victory.
But the distance to the finish line proved just enough for the Civic to
close the gap. In the end it pipped the mower at the post, by the narrowest
of margins. We checked the stopwatch: the BTCC car had taken one minute
18.2 seconds to do a standing-start lap. The mower completed it in one
minute 59 seconds -- a difference of 40.8 seconds. We know who won the
moral victory, though, as the Civic can't trim your grass! Little wonder
that these Honda stars are keen to be handed the Mean Mower to cut some
blades of glory in their gardens during the close season.

Dog engagement is normally used in racing applications where fast, precise
shifting is needed. Dog gear engagement is facilitated by numerous large
teeth (dogs) that mate into matching openings machined into the opposite
surface of the drive gear. Unlike the synchro engagement, there is no
synchronizing mechanism to assist in equalizing speed. Ideal gear
selection—e.g. minimal clashing and wear of the dog rings—is achieved
by quick shifts; the motto here is "the quicker the better", so bang away.
There is no depressing the clutch in the conventional sense like with the
synchromesh transmission. A momentary break in engine load until the shift
is achieved by a quick throttle blip or clutch depression. The driver will
then experience the dog ring engaging with the next gear and the throttle
can be reapplied. With practice this can be done in milliseconds. In fact,
a driver can preload the stick shift in the direction of the next shift,
and then when he either blips the throttle or clutch the shifter will
quickly click in the desired gear.
With all else equal, dog-engagement gears are much stronger than
synchro-engagement gears because without needing to make space for synchro
rings, the gears themselves can be made thicker. The number of dogs (teeth)
and the size of the openings determine the window of opportunity that the
dogs have to engage during the shift event. Rings with a smaller number of
teeth provide a more efficient, smoother shift quality. The downsides to
this easier engagement are increased noise and abruptness on the shift.
