    Hello i'm David from Spain and i want to buy an eg.

    I haven't very much money and i want to know the diferences between eg4 and eg6 in structural fields.

    I know in other vehicles, the higher type have a better suspension and brake system than the less sportive vehicle. And i dont know if in Honda is the same



    Sorry for the english :rolleyes:

    the numbers don't mean squat, its simply a chassis designation. perhaps you mean vehicles like a bmw where the 7 series would be more expensive/sporty/luxurious than a 5, and a 5 more than a 3. those are the cars actual name however, 750il or 530i for example. with honda the model designations are ex,dx, and si for example. eg6, ej1, ef9, etc are all just chassis codes, with no meaning of hierarchy intended by the aforementioned numbers.

    tnx but that's not my question.

    I try to explain it.
    A Ford Focus RS is the better Focus in the market with 300hp, the next version is Ford Focus ST with 220hp. I want to know if in this two version are structural differences, in the chasis, like the flexibility, the resistence to diferent forces. I know that the brakes and suspensions are diferents, but i want to know if the structure is diferent.


    I know that EG are the name of a generation of Honda Civic.

    nothing major structurally is changed i don't believe.. aside from maybe the addition or lack of a front and rear sway bar on some models.

    well if you were to buy a type r integra, its chassis is more reinforced for structural ridgity than a normal integra, even a gsr. same goes for a type r civic. both models also weigh less than a normal model.

    however there are so many aftermarket braces available, that you dont need to buy a true type r to get the most ridgid structure from the factory. there are plenty of upper braces for front and rear, as well as lower braces and frame ties for the front and rear. And a roll cage will cage will always fully stiffen a chassis, at the cost of weight though.

    The Type-R (Integra/Civic/NSX) is a "hand crafted" vehicle. They are the only ones that are stiffer structurally. Just like mentioned here. The best thing to look for if you are going to race it is the lightest model.. meaning what trim level/year offered the lightest chassis (ussually meaning less saftey features aswell). Also if used for track racing you want to get one with no sunroof. I'm not sure what the trim levels are in Europe, but if it was me I would buy a CX.
