Honda Fit Child Seat Review: http://youtu.be/lANyqN0R3aM
Join me as I take a deep dive into the 2015 Honda Fit. Honda's subcompact
has been completely redesigned for the 2015 model year bringing a new
engine, transmission, interior and infotainment to one of the best values
in the segment.
Up front the Fit's new nose is better integrated with the rest of the Honda
family and out back the LED tail lamps and broad "hips" are reminiscent of
the Volvo C30.
The new 1.5L EarthDreams four cylinder engine and a Continuously Variable
Transmission team up to deliver fuel economy that rivals most hybrids and
acceleration times near the top of the pack.
Overall the Fit is one of the best cars I have driven this year and one of
the best values as well. If the Versa Note, Sonic, Fiesta or Rio5 are on
your shopping list, you'd do well to check out the Fit before making any

Club Racer Show - HPD 1.5-liter Honda Fit engine / Interview with Indycar Driver Simona De Silvestro
HPD now offers the 1.5-liter Honda Fit engine to racers planning to run in
the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Formula F competition. The L15A7
engine in FF form is intended to provide open-wheel racers with a modern,
fuel-injected design offering superior service life, increased availability
and lower operating costs.
As one of the initial offerings in its new grassroots motorsports
initiative, Honda Performance Development, Inc. (HPD), the authorized Honda
and Acura auto racing company in North America, enters into an SCCA Club
Racing program with an eye toward lowering operating costs, while
strengthening FF's position as the first step in American open-wheel
"FF has a tremendous history, here in North America and around the world.
Through the '70s and '80s, it was THE place for open-wheel racers to 'cut
their racing teeth'," said Erik Berkman, President of Honda Performance
Development. "So many champion drivers, such as our own Jimmy Vasser, Gil
de Ferran and Bryan Herta, got their start in FF. Our goal is not to force
competitors to make a change, but to make FF more affordable and more
The Honda FF engine has been developed by Honda Performance Development in
cooperation with Sandy Shamlian of Quicksilver RacEngines. The engine is
being developed to equal the performance of the Kent powerplant through
utilization of an HPD-developed intake restrictor plate and appropriately
mapped Engine Control Unit (ECU). If testing reveals the need for
additional performance adjustments, changes can be made to the restrictor
plate and/or the ECU maps to achieve this goal. During initial testing, the
Honda engine provided performance equal to the long out-of-production
"Kent" engine, but featuring a modern fuel-injected design with superior
service life, improved availability and lower operating costs.
Interview with Indycar Driver Simona De Silvestro
In 2007, as a rookie in the Atlantic Championship, De Silvestro earned two
top-10 results and scored championship points in nine of 12 races en route
to 19th in the point standings with Walker Racing and followed that up in
2008 when she earned eight top-10 finishes, including her very first win at
Long Beach for the Late Paul Newman's outfit, Newman-Wachs Racing. In 2009
De Silvestro picked up her game and stunned the North American open-wheel
world. She would go on to win 4 races in dominant fashion with Team
Stargate Worlds. In addition to her wins she also earned 4 pole positions
and an extraordinary 9 podium finishes in the 2009 Atlantic Championship
Season. Her success was not only impressive but it was also record
breaking. De Silvestro, who is often referred as "the Swiss Miss" because
of her Swiss upbringing, was the first woman in series history to have
earned the most wins, pole positions, and led the most laps all in a single
season. At the end of the season De Silvestro also had an extraordinary 9
podium finishes. The results of her effort led to her finishing the season
in 3rd place, proving to observers that she is on par to becoming open
wheel racing's next shining star.
