    i have a problem with wheel hop and wheel spin in my 00 civic hatch. i was thinking of a solution when i stumbled upon this site that sells a traction bar that would fit my car. check it out, and tell me if you think it would be effective.
    www.z10eng.com/products.cfm

    also, are any of you currently using a traction bar of some sort?
    thanks B)

    well ummmm... my hondata guy had a thing or two to say about them. the original designer of the radius bars doesnt work for z10 anymore and has a revised BETTER version of them. according to him, contrary to the claims of z10 they DO bind up, his new design doesnt. ill have to ask dale what the guys screen name is, he is on honda-tech or something.

    his name is Geoff Racier. he now runs full-race.com

    he started work with z10 a few years back, left there due to z10 being a bunch of pricks, and went to work with maxrev.com, which was a supra shop. He adding a honda turbo product line. you can find max rev stuff- good parts - from ks-motorsports.com.
    he left there to go on his own with a team of mecahnical engineers and machinists, and opened full-race.com

    jimfab OWNS z1- bars by far.

    considering i have never done auto-x before you are definitely a superior driver under these conditions.

    brian doesn't autocross either.
    he's just saying that our del sol's are far superior to a prelude in every possible way.
