This past weekend we ran our first autocross on our BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KD tires. What a difference, especially under braking. The car now actually stops when the middle pedal is pushed. Turn-in and power delivery were also much better. We've said it before and it warrants repeating: Tires make the biggest difference in performance. So, how did we do?

Still, once the car is done and a good driver is placed behind the wheel, the Civic should be fast.

We did get some no-so-great news regarding our paint this week, however. We had planned on getting the car painted by our local vo-tech school sometime this spring. Now we hear it may be August before they can do the car. Since the paint is holding up the rest of the project, we may have to turn to Plan B.
