With almost 200 WHP - thats gonna be tough - lots of power - but not too much where it gets away from you.

* B18C Block – Civic type R .25mm over-size pistons
* B16A Head – Jun valve springs, Jun stage 4 camshaft, Jun cam sprockets
* AEBS intake manifold
* Spoon throttle body
* BLITZ 534cc injectors
* BLITZ NUR spec R muffler w/ custom 80mm piping
* Toda light-weight flywheel
* ACT clutch
* ATS 4.928 final drive circuit spec
* KAAZ 1.5 way LSD
* ZEAL super function coil-over
* RACING HART CP-035 – 15”x7.5” +40 front, 15”x 6.5” +45 rear
* 198whp @ 8500 rpm
* 9800 rpm redline
* Apex Power FC engine management

For all N/A - note the differing head - LS-VTEC swap is my guess.
Zeal suspension is from Endless - serious suspension solution - 2.5K +
LSD to boot - geez this GT4 or something?
10K redline and he's running 15"s with alot of bite - so he's gonna be quick off the line and be nibble too. this is a well spec'd car for it's class.

He's gonna be tough to beat...
So this Zeal suspension--is it built for competition? If so, how rigid is a cage-less Integra? Considering that the MCS is such a rigid car compared to others in its class, and I still detect a little bit of flex in mine from relatively mild spring rates of 330 front, 350 rear, I can't imagine running competition suspension on a car without a cage.

Gutting is a penalty in AT2 when it comes down to two closely matched cars.

The Endless suspension is well built - you can read about it here - http://www.endlessusa.com/products/p...01&cid=11&pg=1
I've looked at Zeal in the past for the Mini Cooper for suspension - they do have the B6 suspension available for the Cooper - just cost is way high.
As for a cage-less integra - just judging by the added components - though it maybe unlisted - there is most likely quite a bit of footwork components are in the mix.

Don't get me wrong - I'm rooting on Spike to make the cut for the video and seein it being push to it's limits by such world class drivers. Just that event is hosting some awesome cars that might provide some surprises.

Hey Guy's.....

Ivan I appologize for not being able to talk today when you called. I was swamped under a mountain of products to ship, and way behind.......

We can certainly add some interesting parts to help the cause

And remember a MINI with a AGS sounds better then the Honda.

I would like to add that this is a great pic. See there is no way if i was sitting there like that that I would look bad ass like him. If yhey took a pic of me im sure id be making some goofy face or something.

Right. I was referring more to the spring rates than the quality of the dampers. Putting 500 lbs/in+ rate springs on a car without a cage or other means of improving structural rigidity is madness!
