    This vehicle is basically a FULL TYPE R, with an EG shell. And this is not any normal EG shell. This shell has been prepared by ProMotion Motorsports to race not only Pikes Peak, but also
    World Challenge, and Pro Rally racing.

    to rally the major requirement is you MUST hate your car because you can not baby it, you pound that ass all day long. It would be fun but hard on the wallet.

    i hope it goes to a good home!

    it didn't beat the Escudo... i have an issue somewhere talking about that championship race it won... i believe it was in a largely different class, but i know it beat out a 700hp turbo mitsubishi FTO. the Escudo has the track record tho.

    Just like in autoX and road racing, a (relitivly) stock civic does not go up against dodge vipers and ferraris, i am sure it is the exact same way. Major thing is he is NA vs going FI, those are probally 2 diffrent classes

    obviously in a different division then the escudo but he was able to win his division because it was supercharged at the time, im a good friend of his and he lives just a few miles away.......hopefully it goes to a good home

    what is a mild spring rate? I am running neuspeed race springs. I know a few potential fake rally roads where I could "practice" my car on so I could actually rip up some dsm's on.

    well the realtime racing type r is running 800lb/in up front and 1200 in the rear. a stock type r has 225/180. so 450 would be streetable.
