Real Drivers: Honda Civic Hatchback (B20-powered)
See more at http://hittingredline.com/ .
Most modified vehicles undergo numerous changes over their lives, and the
longer a vehicle is owned, the more pronounced those alterations become.
Ian Wright's 1995 Honda Civic CX, for example, has been powered by four
different engines over its life so far, each for a different reason, from
the stock, 90-horsepower engine to a built
GSR motor running aviation fuel, and now back to a JDM B20B powerplant.
Likewise, the body has accumulated a number of genuine carbon fiber pieces,
either custom-made like the fuel door or bespoke like the Viper ACR dive
Among the purists on certain automotive forums, my announcement of this
film caused controversy over the worthiness of a Civic to be the subject of
a film. But I maintain, as I have before, that a real car guy (or girl)
should not brush aside the joy that can be achieved with a more mundane
vehicle. The way a car drives, sounds, looks, and feels varies enormously,
and while others brush aside the humble Civic, many are fun, reliable, and
grin-inducing vehicles that prove you don't need RWD and big power to have
a good time.

Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and
desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with
the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9
months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a
new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR
IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header.
The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual
numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get
her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no
problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more
vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with
the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent
roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K
as much money at all.
McLaren MP4-12C vs Honda Civic BTCC racer vs Honda Fireblade British Superbike
We know the McLaren 12C is other-worldly fast. But how does it compare
against a Honda Civic British Touring Car Championship racer and a British
Superbike Championship-winning Honda Fireblade?

We took a McLaren 12C to Rockingham Motor Speedway to face its toughest
challenge yet. Could it outpace a Honda Civic BTCC racer driven by former
champion Gordon Shedden and the pairing of 2013 British Superbike champion
Alex Lowes and his Samsung Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade? Which would set the
fastest lap? Would the Civic's superior grip make up for the power deficit?
Would the McLaren be too much to match on the straight? Or would the 'Blade
offer a blend of light weight and high performance impossible to match?
