  1. Spoon Civic Type R FL5 on lowered suspension and wheels

    In my experience tires still matter the most in Autocross, then suspension, followed by brakes. I raw time plenty of people in my bone stock Si with just some sticky tires. In my Miata its fairly uncompetitive in class on my track tires vs the autocross set up I used to run (I'm just cheap and...
  2. Backup plans - what's yours?

    My friend paid his Toyota dealer to check and they found 90% blockage in the pickup. They are replacing the motor under warranty, but it's been on order for 2 months. He had a very early build though. (First GR86 in the area)
  3. Looks like US Civic Type R FL5 versions are on their way to shipping...

    On the flipside 2 of my 3 buddies with FK8s have Aegean Blue, the third had Aegean too, but now has Boost Blue

    I'm the total opposite, I hate washing the car. Especially since I can't garage park it, I have to force myself to wash it at least once a month. However, I keep the inside as clean as possible. Well except for the Great Pyrenees fur that gets everywhere no matter how hard I try. Having a big...

    No way it beats out the Z06 or the Huracan. BMW has long lost the plot with ///M cars

    I’d bet it was stopping at Car & Driver for instrumented testing, then headed to Monticello for the Road and Track PCOTY. They have a CW one in the test today

    *Should be removed during PDI* Gotta hope Honda PDI techs are better than VW's way too many posts about the shipping pucks being left in on the MK7 (2015-21) and the MK8

    Honda did the same with the 11th gen Si launch. It populated on the website after cars had gotten to customers. Seems par for the course unfortunately
  9. Getting a Civic Si(Southeast)

    The dealer I bought mine from shows they have a black one in their inventory. The last time someone checked they were doing a tiny bit of ADM. I had a great experience doing the entire deal for mine virtually with them. Theresa in sales took care of me on the first one they got. Gary Force...
  10. Civic Si for 2023!?

    The Si and Type R are built in different plants, in separate countries. I wouldn't read into that too much for Type R availability.
  11. Backup plans - what's yours?

    My backup plan currently is to keep driving my Si. Potential replacements are Chevy Bolt (Cheap EV and I have free charging at work) GR Corolla Core with Performance Pack FK8 Focus RS (I almost bought one before my Si, but the market on them followed the FK8 and got outrageous.)
  12. Backup plans - what's yours?

    Miatas are the best, I daily drove mine for 5 years, and my parents daily drive their 2015. If you don't need back seats and can fit they're the best driver's car for under $50K
  13. What are you willing to pay for an 11th gen Type R?

    Its not even just chip shortages manufactures are dealing with now. Plants are temporarily halting production because of general parts availability issues. JIT Manufacturing is great for saving money on an accounting spreadsheet but can absolutely destroy productivity if not careful...
  14. 27WON Civic Si Time Attack Build

    I used just under 1 bottle of the Motul RBF600. I would get 2 just to be safe though. Have you swapped pads yet? As far as I'm aware the only option are the Carbotech ones. Hawk wont have pads until December at the earliest.
  15. (Sounds of a) 2023 Civic Type R Ripping Around the Track (Audible Throttle Inputs)

    Its removable like the 10th gen, the 86 and the MK7s. Just a bit of a pain to get at unlike the Soundaktor. I'm also not sure if you can code it away easily like in the VWs. I just coded mine off on my MK7 instead of pulling the unit out.

    Not necessarily, they are most likely pre production models used for verifying the production process. If that's the case, they will probably be used for testing/ press fleet purposes, and then crushed afterwards. However, we are getting close if they are in the buildout phase. (I work on the...
  17. 2023 Civic Type R Parked up in Championship White (California)

    I wanted to get a set of them for my MK7 GTI 😅
  18. FL5 (BS?) Autocross Thread

    At least locally all of the DS guys are hoping its not going to DS 🤣 We have 4 or 5 regulars all with co drivers and one of them is first in line for the FL5
