Altona Drag Races August 18th, 2012 Honda Civic Vs AMC Javelin
My 1992 Honda Civic Vs an AMC Javelin at the Altona Drag Races on Agust 18th, 2012. My civic is daily driven, GSR swap with bolt ons. Javelin is fully built drag car. Ran 9.752 in the 1/8 mile. Had a best of 9.571
2hp: Mazda 3 VS Honda Civic. 2014
Today we will make a comparative test drive between the two eternal rivals:
Honda Civic and Mazda 3. It is obvious that Honda Civic looks restrained,
conservative, but at the same time quite boring. What can not be said about
Mazda 3. It is emotional, sporty and aggressive.

How To Solve Honda Idle Problems - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Before posting questions about Honda idle problems please read this:
The viewers have chosen and this weeks video will be about solving Honda
idle problems. I'm really not surprised as I get a lot of questions and
requests about this very subject. Here are the links I promised in the
video that will help you address specific issues mentioned in the video.
How To Bleed a Cooling System
How to Check for Vacuum Leaks
Reading Check Engine Light Codes
Diagnosing an Overheat
Hopefully when your done checking all that stuff out you will have solved
your Honda's idle problem, if not leave a comment or send me a message and
I'll see what I can do just make sure you have tried all the stuff in the
videos first as that saves me from typing so much.
I also want to add my "Idle Speech" into the mix here:
There are a lot of things that can contribute to an idle issue, in fact in
the end it may still be there to some degree because of the nature of that
engine however here are some things to start with.
First start with a good tune up, use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs, don't
change the wires if they are OE, if they aren't OE you might consider NGK
wires as they are very good and less expensive then OE. A quality cap and
rotor should be good. A new air filter also helps.
Don't change the PCV valve, if you see an aftermarket PCV valve in there
put a Honda in, believe it or not I've seen idle issues caused by
aftermarket PCV valves, the OE's last just about forever so you can easily
justify the expense.
Next a good valve adjustment, this goes a long way to smooth out the idle
if done correctly, mess it up and things can get a lot worse though.
While you have the valve cover off check the timing belt tension, if you
feel a lot of slack this can cause the cam to 'chunk' as it spins causing a
rough idle. If you think the belt has been on there for some time then
you might consider changing it and resetting the tension properly, if it's
not ready for replacement you can reset the tension to take up the slack.
DO NOT adjust the idle screw under any circumstances, it is set at the
factory and that is the reason it was sealed in the first place. If you
find that the seal has been broken and you have a low idle and you have
done all of the above then you might turn the screw out a little to see if
that helps the idle but only enough to try and bring it back to where it
was before it was adjusted in the first place.
Last clean the screen in the Idle Air Control valve, this can get clogged
up with carbon over time and cause the flow through it to be restricted
which can cause idle issues.
If you still have a 'rough' idle after all of this THEN look to the engine
mounts as you want to be sure the engine is running correctly before you go
for those as the one in the back is a real pain to replace.

AMC Rambler American, Javelin Drag Race
After both building new engines for our cars in the last 12 months, and
much smack talk (mainly from me), it was time for the BS to stop and the
racing to start. The venue was the Kwinana Motorplex in Perth, Western
Australia at the once-a-year Retro Drag Day. Great event where we managed
to get four qualifying passes in before eliminations. This was both our
second run for the day but the first time we had lined up against each

Honda Mean Mower vs BTCC Honda Civic

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.

People assume that car companies know their competition's every move, as if
there was some sort of "Mission Impossible" crew sent in on weekends to
monitor R&D progress. While some less-than-ethical information exchange
goes on, usually a car manufacturer like Honda finds out what the
competition's latest widget looks when we do. Need proof? Look at the 2011,
2012, 2013 and now the 2014 Honda Civic. The 9th generation Civic was
intended to début as a 2011, but the financial implosion caused Honda to
go back and re-work their compact car as a 2012 to keep prices low. In the
perpetual game of auto-leapfrog, Honda miscalculated the direction Ford,
Hyundai, Kia (and perhaps even Nissan) were headed. The result was bashed
by Consumer Reports and raked across the coals by most of the press. Did
buyers care? Apparently not. The 2012 Civic was purchased in impressive
quantities by real-people. Honda could have found solace in their sales,
but instead they did something unusual: they re-re-redesigned the Civic for
2013 followed by a light refresh yet again for 2014.
The 2013 Civic isn't just a second-year options package shake-up, and it
isn't even a mid-cycle color and trim shuffle. The changes after only a
year on the market land somewhere between a refresh and and a
redesign-on-the-same-platform. How can I call it a redesign? Well, if Lexus
can call the "new" LS a new car... But I digress.
The 2013 re-tune focused on a visual re-tweak of the car's front and rear
end and a slew of interior refinement changes and upgrades. Because of the
time constraints many of these changes didn't make it to the Civic Coupé
in time for the 2013 model year so for 2014 the Coupe gets the same
interior and a slightly re-worked exterior. The big news for 2014 however
is Honda's all-new 7-inch touchscreen HondaLink infotainment system. The
new smartphone integrated system runs a version of Honda's familiar
software adapted to a single screen interface with touch and slide gesture
commands. While you can opt for standard navigation in the EX-L with
Navigation model, the EX and EX-L trims integrate Honda's new iPhone
integrated nav option which costs just $65 (plus a cable) and reminds me of
GM's Bringo integrated navigation system. (In a good way.) I have long
thought that this type of solution is the way to go and Honda has found a
way to make it work even without Apple's CarPlay software interface being
finalized. Sadly Android owners will have to wait a while before a similar
solution is available for them.
