  1. Are the fuel tank straps in good condition? I can't tell from the photos.
  2. I hope you're not thinking of scrapping a perfectly good Civic shell... rust? damage?
  3. I can confirm that the fuel tank straps were replaced a few years ago. I also have an extra front bumper cover I found on kijiji that I never got around to installing on this car when I owned it. Brand new oem style unpainted. Would sell for cheap. PM me if interested. /end hijack
  4. You should also be able to use the words "Honda" and "torque" in the same sentence now without triggering mockery from nearby Corvette owners.
  5. Beau - I have a bunch of off-cuts. Let me know if you need them.
  6. Re folding shelf: I think this is what you're looking for: https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.16-inch-x16-inch--white-folding-shelf-bracket.1000773670.html ...+ whatever you want to use as a shelf. I have a bunch of 1/2" smooth plywood left over from a reno you could use. I will happily cut off a piece for this If you let me know what size.
  7. So that's 330lbs @ 100mph with a wing vs. 302lbs @ 70mph with an underbody kit. My take away from that thread is that a full underbody aero kit is the way to go, as it will make a significant difference even at slower auto-cross speeds. A wing should be used to fine tune that kit, it won't be enough to make a difference on its own at slower speeds. As a rough approximation, aero forces typically go up with the square of speed, therefore at 50 mph, that wing would still be generating (50/100)^2 x 330 = 82.5 lbs. I would not call that insignificant at all. Also consider that it is not optimized for autocross because he is also concerned about drag at high speed...
  8. Coach, if you want to do wind tunnel testing on this I will gladly donate $20 if you share results with me. Otherwise I guess all we can do is look at what the other successful cars have: http://www.gotcone.com/photos/2015-scca-tirerack-solo-national-championships/smf/
  9. Yeah I will be relying on codrivers to teach me how to drive this thing LOL. It's not really like what I'm used to.
  10. 13k. MPI estimate says the damage would cost 18.5k to fix. Or I can ignore it for free.
  11. That's the car, but I actually bought it from the guy who got it from MPI so I ended up paying a bit more. Still fairly satisfied with the value though. At least I won't have to worry about cone marks.
  12. I know classing is pretty irrelevant unless I actually manage to make it to events, but I picked this up a couple days ago... I don't usually name my cars, but I think "Haley" would be a good name for this one:
