    Love the look of these, so much better than what the likes of Ford/British Leyland etc were putting out at the time.

    Wonder if you could shoe-horn a K20 in there :Wink:

    its been done the work involved is emense ! so much power they understeer off the track on corners unless you totally redesign the whole suspension and greatly widen the wheel track
    once youve done all this you will find it hard to fnd a competitive class for it to race in !!! so realistically you might as well save a lot of time and money and buy an EP3 !!!! the set up on our Civic,s are in period modified and allow us to race in historic classes and occasionally we manage to win a pot or two :Grin:

    CRYSTAL PALACE HILLCLIMB/SPRINT 26TH/27TH MAY
    OUR RACE CLASS LIST IS OUT
    our little honda Civic is up for some tough opposition this year with some of the big guns coming out out to play.
    the last couple of races at crystal palace we have managed to win a couple of trophies for 2nd in class !
    i fear a podium is out of out reach this year were giving away way to much BHP !! but our main goal is to better our all time best 1st Generation Civic time at this event so a sub 44.57 will do nicely !
