May 21, 2006 update to the Honda Civic Si project car

Two Davids, one Civic

It was an offer we couldn’t refuse. Our friend and usual competition, Super Dave, asked if he could co-drive our Civic at this weekend’s event. His car was having a few issues, so he asked if we wouldn’t mind sharing. And in return, well, in return Dave’s company is well worth it.

Thanks to the small run groups, the two-driver teams were kept plenty busy as there was barely enough time to swap numbers and get drivers in and out of the car before being called to staging again. Check the tire pressures? No way, as there was zero time to do anything about it.

We started the day with 36 psi up front and 34 psi out back and ran the car like that. It felt great through the slaloms. The car developed a push as the session went on, but that’s probably thanks to the mid-90-degree temps and the fact the tires were given no time to rest. Plus Dave’s sprayer died on us.

In the end, the crew bagged first and second place. Not a bad way to spend a sunny Sunday.
