Why the speed holes ? Wouldn't a diffuser be better ? Or would that be too much weight ?

Don't Civics have a tiny rotor to begin with? I'm guessing ~12# each on the front, 5# for the arms and 10# for the rear, that seems like a lot.

the calipers are heavy as **** stock. the new wilwood alumimum ones weigh nothing just the calipers and rotors save 20 lbs on the dot. replacing the trailing arms is 30 more lbs. rotors are that much lighter than stock. thinner

changed to the FTW red fuel. And it's not 100 and humid now. Did a pull with the old fuel and it made 385 a tad rich.

back from the dead

after a wonderful year off and waiting 6 months for a custom 106 crank i finally got to make a hit with the car. but it wasnt without drama lol.

quick run down of my trip to wcf.

friday -monday before wcf i put a dummy motor in the car and installed everything to set the weight of the car and allign it.

tuesday morning i stripped her down and organized everything into boxes and loaded everything into the hatch.

thursday night we arrived at WCF where i rolled the shell over to Norris' trailer and with the help of his team we got the car ready and had it running in a few hours.

No time to dyno so we put a basemap on it i already had from the old motor and added a bunch of fuel. tried to make an 1/8th mile pass first round and i cant ****ing shift. car will not come out of gear at high rpm. so we a got a little data and now i get to take the trans off again after all the work the night before. norris lent me a carbon carbon prototype clutch he was supposed to test and the car is ready for round 3 saturday morning. well took so long to get to round 3 it ended up being night time. i finally get to make the hit and she cracks off a 1.50 60 foot and midway through 4th gear i see smoke pouring out of the header hole in the hood and i slam on the brakes before the traps. my stomach drops and i think no way. i pull around to the return road pop the hood. i see oil drenched all down the passenger firewall area. then i see my hood and right where my catch can area is it looks like the oil had exploded into a circle right above it. pop the catch can lid and the mofo is full. i guess with this new motor and me most likely over filling the motor (when i first put oil in it the damn cap was loose and i lost a bunch) there is way too much blow by for my catch can.

norris comes and picks me up and we get to the scales so i can qualify. 10.3 @ 124 letting off!! so i think ok things are looking up i guess.


ended up using a spare valvecover and put a 12 an to a 2 liter bottle of the stock valve cover in preparation for round 1 elims.

luckily i get paired with loan (sarcasm) she had just set a new world record 9.70 @ 142 mph.

i think to myself try and cut a good light and set a personal best. worst case scenario you lose to the fastest honda in the class and best case scenario im right there if she has troubles. well she did have some issues up top and i got around her around the 1000 foot and cracked off my personal best 10.1 @ 136 mph. only 1.56 this time it got a little lazy out of the hole and bogged.

i get to the return road and put the car in first gear and its very rough going in. get to the scales and pull off and it does it again. norris comes to pick up loan and i had him pull over and check it out. turns out that clutch wont be making it into production the pressure plate or diaphragm is broken

i got a bye next round from breakage in the ladder and limped it up to the line and got 100 bucks then forteited. that was my weekend.

after looking at the logs it got very rich after 9500 or so and with a better 60 foot there was room for improvement. but i am satisfied with a 10.1 with basically the first clean hit ever on the car at a good track and things are looking up. big thanks to everyone that supported me along the way and super big thanks to Humble Performance and Prayoonto Racing.

heres a video of the 10.1 pass against loan and some pics from the weekend.
