Your videos always look bonkers quick! Good to see the car being used properly.
Some footage on Instagram
Great power there buddy. Torque is a little on the low side though (?). Might be a dynamic of that rolling road though of course. In saying that (And perhaps a little hard to tell without being able to see the rev-counter).....your's seems to pick up the revs really well indeed. And sounds fabulous doing it
Didnt realise the Honda Civics were so low on torque !
I personally don't feel that driving-wise mine is terrible (158lb-ft after normal breathing mods and remap).....but 133 must take some gearbox stirring !
And as above; Brilliant vids and great to see the car getting 'what for' ;-)
In the quest to reduce weight and still retain an OEM look and feel the ridiculously large 197 washer bottle definitely needed a diet. I looked for a way of reducing the size of the current bottle but it didn't quite go to plan so instead I looked for a smaller OEM alternative. This would also allow me to free up further room for the new brake ducting.
After a long look online looking for something that I could retain the original pipe work and electrical connector I decided to opt for a Twingo bottle since it answered most of my requirements. A little bit of fettling and a 3D printed sleeve and I now have an OEM look washer bottle which is 1.5ltrs smaller than the Clio bottle.
Not too bad!
I got a small box tank for the washer fluid it was about 10cm long and high by about 5cm wide but I'm going back to standard it didn't look the best mounted in the car - I attached it to the plastic slam panel.
This has OEM fittings and position with just minor fettling.
Decided to hold on to the speedlines. 2hour refurb and they are like new
Nice job they do indeed look new.
Thanks guys. I was going to order a set of TD 1.2 which I still may do but am focusing money elsewhere at the moment.
I'm now thinking I may enter Time Attack next year as a couple of friends are already doing it and it seems like a better option than sprinting for a number of seasons. My passion is circuit racing however in order to make the car competitive I would need to reduce the weight considerably for tin tops or a similar series and I still wont get it down anywhere near to competitor car weights and I would have to up the power staying N/A to be within regulations so in reality its not an option. The Clio series is out of the question too since it's big money.
As such I have some pretty big plans for the car...
New cage ordered! and so it begins...

Nice purchase mate, good luck with Time Attack, love the idea of competing but not a cheap hobby at all! (that and my driving skills are poop )
Thanks Ben. No definitely not a cheap hobby but a passion! Why couldn't I be into golf!? This is the first of a few bits coming shortly...
Started to strip the interior out ready for the cage fitting. Still have to remove the carpet and the dashboard to fit the cage.
I will be removing all the unnecessary brackets and respraying the interior in blue following the welding.
Some images from Anglesey yesterday! Unfortunately my video footage hasn't worked so well but as usual it punched way above it's weight. Think the owner of a GTR left a little disappointed!
Blue car with gold wheels!
Love that combo
Don't we all?
Car looks so good from the rear with the sprint spoiler!
