May 25, 2005 update to the Honda Civic Si project car

Project cars

Magazine project cars are fun to do, and people seem to enjoy reading them. However, sometimes they can be frustrating. The Civic falls into that category at the moment.

I haven’t “officially” said anything about it on the project car page, because I first wanted to make sure I had all my ducks in a row. I think they’re now in a row, and the verdict says our springs aren’t correct for our application. (I got to do some cool spring rate calculations using something called “math.”)

That’s why I like working with guys like Jay (Ground Control) and Lee (Koni). As I told Lee, if he said I should replace my springs with cupcakes, I would do so. His reply e-mail only said, “mmmm….cupcakes.”
