Green means go

Tomorrow the Civic is heading to Gainesville Raceway for the Martin Sports Car Club’s MiniPrix, their semiannual, high-speed autocross. Since R-compound race tires are allowed in our G Prepared class, we (finally) mounted up a set: some Nitto NT01 tires leftover from our last tire test. We’ll see if we’re able to generate enough heat to get them working, as they’re more designed for track use.

So, why the green wheels? Well, that seems to be the signature color for the new Rota J-Special wheels. Plus we figured we’d give some people something new to complain about.
