Ride Rating


Originally a Honda / Michelin racecar from way back in the day. Has been racing all it's life. I've used it for road-racing (mostly), one hillclimb a year and the odd autocross. Totally reliable, very predictable. Not the fastest in a straight line (as most Honda drivers will know) but great cornering and braking! Has an SI drivetrain that is bone stock for class, DC Sports header and 1 bottle muffler - I installed a Quaife LSD - has a no-name cold air intake pulling from behind the bumper - Tokico Illumina's, coilovers and Eibach springs (550# front and 450# rear). This is my mid-life crisis car - when I turned 40. It is/was WAY cheaper than another woman, and my wife is my pitcrew at all the events. Could not have done it without her!!
