7:43.8 around the Nurburgring Nordschleife is a time only certain race cars can achieve… who would have thought, that this certain race car… was a Honda!?
Track: Willow Springs International Circuit – Streets of Willow
Tires: Racing Softs
Dave Fisher was the man to break 1:11.1’s but with my tune! This just comes to show the promise behind our tunes!
Now I know the track selection is not Nordschleife … but the idea behind our track selection was to see if the Civic can do more than just Nordschleife!
The winding corners of Streets of Willow really shined on the suspension telemetry of the car! As long as your input is not too aggressive, she’ll behave really well! Very stable on directional changes!
At full power, the front wheels will slip so mind your throttle control to ensure max grip on exits!
The trick to tuning FF cars is in the Weight Shift. Having the center dead weight of the car shift more towards the rear end, will influence the rear to want to swing out.
Stiffening the Rear Anti-Roll Bar and adjusting Rear Camber according to the track will help prevent the rear tires from sliding.
Even though the rear has a tendency to want to slide out, the rear tires are there to catch the weight shift!
What a joy it was tuning this! Enjoy the drive everyone!
