New to Honda and this forum!

Well, I shouldn't say that I am new to Honda, I used to have a EG when I was in H.S. I am a bimmer guy who track my car regularly (1 to 2 x per month) and that Europe piece of s**t break down all the time. So, I am planning to track a Honda instead and I want to know which Civic is the best for road course . Any suggestion will be greatly appreciate!

nice, pick something light and work on the suspension. lots of good parts out there to improve handling.

The old 88-89 Civic si's, 2nd gen CRX si's ect ect ect... Basically any thing Pre Airbag and Pre 5mph bumpers.

Neither of which need engine swaps, but they are definitely candidates. I'd be looking to find one as stock as possible.



Or you could go the integra GSR rout.


Any plans on club racing?

Re: New to Honda and this forum!

After owning the Bimmer, I really hate to work on car. I mean spending hours after hours just for repair, not upgrade, which make me feel very tried of it. So, the GSR route might be better for me! Found some 99 GSR on local Craiglist, any ideas which year is better!

I am a group 3 student with NASA, I want to race the Honda Challenge in the future or at least the time trial!

That's true, my old EG was very easy to work on! Well, don't get it wrong, bimmer is also very to work on, but they contiuously break down. Just like putting a 90 years old man to join the Olympic!
