One thing about Skunk2 is that we strive to be unique. The same goes for our Street Team Elite. Morgan Jade is a unique member of Skunk2's Street Team Elite simply because she's its only female member. She's also the only member with a real-deal, RHD Civic Type R. Morgan's performance parts cocktail makes for a vehicle that is well suited for track purposes, yet still drivable for lunch meetings and coffee runs. Morgan stopped by Skunk2 headquarters for a visit a while back; we took advantage of the situation by capturing some video of her and the CTR. Check it out below and hear what the lady of Skunk2's Street Team Elite has to say.

The Haycemobile - Build up - Part 1
This is a vid I put together for a mate.
It shows the awesome progression of his car over a clutch job that turned into a full on 4-year build. No holds barred. GT3076R, JE forgies, Eagle rods.
This is going to be a monster.
Stay tuned for part 2, the engine build, the interior and the initial tune.

JRSC ITR Build Up - Chapter 1
This clip shows the progression of my JRSC supercharged B18c-R DC2 Honda from it's humble beginnings as a turquoise Vti-R to how it look today.
This movie has a bit of a sad ending. Bye bye B18c-R.
Thats ok though, chapter 2 shows the re-power with a JE/Eagle forged B18c and a bit more Boost + methanol :)
Credit to Adam Plews for the initial build, my part comes later

Project GS-R PART I
The begining of my 98 Integra GS-R build.... I've dropped over $6500 in parts alone on the motor and suspension. I've done all of the hard work and labor in my garage and where the car now sits in storage. It's being built for street/strip/auto-x. I'm hoping to get 300WHP when it's all said and done. No H8RS Welcome!!!! I've done this build with my hard earned money and 100s of hours of labor. If u got sh*t to talk, take it somewhere else. THIS IS FOR ALL THE TEGGY OWNERS OUT THERE TO ENJOY AND GET IDEAS FROM.
