Guess the Civic isn’t slow

The work on our Civic is more or less done—hopefully you have seen the recent installments in the magazine—but we still needed to gauge our performance. So, was the car a real STS contender?

To find out, we held a little face-off today. The benchmark was Scott Strickland’s ‘89 Civic Si, the car that recently took the STS and STX class wins at the SCCA’s Dixie National Tour. Its driver, Mike King, was our official pilot. (Mike drove this car to a third place at last year’s Tire Rack SCCA National Championships, by the way.)

To keep things fair, the same set of tires were used on both cars. We just kept swapping them back and forth.

How did our car do? Well, let’s say we were very pleasantly surprised. Look for all of the numbers in GRM very soon.
