What Adu said (x2)
Sounds like that wasn't it. I don't see any signs of this particular car being at the event on Sunday... It's also definitely not the most powerful Civic that shows up at Spokes.Is that the Civic with yellow lights?
If so, it made a GLORIOUS FREAKING NOISE on Sunday.
Wouldn't have the stickers on the road, but I'm assuming that's taken at some event or somesuch, so they're fine. It's pretty tastefully done, IMHO. Even the yellow headlamps (if it is what I think it is) sort of seemed to work--probably because the rest was just black and white, and with those bars on the inside, I have to doubt it gets too much road use. I find funny-colored headlamps SO annoying on the road--blue much more so than yellow, though. Otherwise it's a pretty plain little white hatchback.
Goes like stink = instant win, IMHO. The more something goes like stink, the less I tend to care about looks.
I'm not sure if its engine is a Honda engine still. If it is, the car would probably be in EP. If it's not, it'll be in XP. Either way, this particular car will be beat by an SM2 (er, sorry, now SSM) RX-7 that lives in our area.what class is it running in? I assume things have changed a lot but back in 2001-2002 the EF chassis used kill in street touring
I'm willing to bet that it has a Honda engine. B18 or K20, if I had to guess. Its a hell of a lot of work to put a non-Honda unit into a Honda and its not really worth it - Honda motors have a lot of potential.I'm not sure if its engine is a Honda engine still.

that's because it doens't have any :lol:
Presumably you are aware that the Rover K-series is a terrible engine that eats its way through head gaskets quicker than you can say 'head bolts'. My dad's Rover 400 1.4 is on it's fourth I think. Beautiful car though, no doubt about that.
So not only it does race, it is also mostly privately funded, the driver has to drive all the way to the track and it's fast. That car could have all the stickers of the world (as long as they serve the sponsoring purpose) and it will always remain as brilliant as it is!As yall are mostly on to me at this point I'll give in.
This isn't an autocross car, but it is a car built for a specific purpose. This Civic was built for One Lap of America. [...]
:lol:Holy mother of Fluffy Bunny
Most of those are contingencies, which means he gets money/goodies if he does well (which he does quite often). A couple of those are series-mandated stickers, and it isn't uncommon to give some space to whatever companies make the safety equipment you use, too.
If the person who owns that car is who I think it is, I don't think he's much worried about that specific car's competitiveness in autocross. :lol:It's not competitive in its class at autocross. It fact, it'll be beat by cars in a "lesser" class.
