May 21, 2005 update to the Honda Civic Si project car

Degrees of change

The Civic got its alignment today, and things went okay. Looks like we have -1.2 degrees of camber on the left-front and -1.4 on the right-front. Left-rear is -0.1 and right-rear is -0.7. What’s weird with the rear is that in theory we shimmed both sides the same amount. We’ll check it out. Toe is zero all the way around.

The car also got an oil change, receving a few fresh quarts of Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic and a Honda filter. We also fixed the broken windshield squirter with a piece of vacuum hose.

Tomorrow the car heads to the Lake County Technical Center for a Martin Sports Car Club autocross. As usual, we’ll be running in the Street Touring S class. We’re going to start our baseline tire pressures at 35psi all the way around. (That’s where they ended after our last event.)
