  1. JTilus 2007 Civic Si Autocross Project

    Autocross & Sanctioned Drag Racing
    Another (late) update. At the end of May, I drove down to Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC, to compete in the SCCA Monster Time Trials event. Managed a strong 1st place finish in T5 class. Fastest lap was a 1:55 which was nearly 5 seconds ahead of the next car in class. Results...

    Autocross & Sanctioned Drag Racing
    Forgot to mention, I've recently installed G-Loc brake pads, Centric Rotors, and filled the brake reservoir with Motul DOT 5.1 fluid. These pads are awesome. I've tried a number of different pads on various applications, and I've never been so impressed. A little dust, but totally worth it for...

    Couple of recent events I attended: A couple weeks ago, I went to SCCA Track Night In America at Road Atlanta. It was a decent amount of seat time for not a lot of money:
  4. FG2 vs EJ9 for autocross use?

    Autocross & Sanctioned Drag Racing
    There are definitely Pros/Cons to both. It really depends on how many mods you currently have, how many you want to have, and how competitive you want to be. Assuming you're competing in SCCA classes... FG2 is competitive in HS, which will require very few mods (shocks, swaybar, tires, and...

    My 3" lightweight catback is taking shape. Spent the weekend cutting/tacking everything in place. Just needs to be finish-welded now. (ignore the ugly flux-core welds.) Muffler is a CoastFab 17" (4.5" OD) that weighs 3.29 lbs. The v-band flanges and clamps were heavier than I was expecting. I...

    Not without getting bumped into a higher class.

    I haven't gotten to the exhaust project yet, but went ahead and registered at the last minute for a local Atlanta Region event. It was fairly wet and cold, so I decided to leave the Conti's on with the stock wheels. Had a pretty solid showing, coming in 4th overall in PAX out of 95 drivers. My...

    Time for some updates! I've been torn about which direction I want to take this car. I think it would be a lot of fun to do full bolt-ons, tune, etc. However, that would put the car in STX. I'm just not ready to go all in with STX. The car should still be pretty competitive in HS, as there...

    I went to the local drag strip the other day. It was busy, so I only got a few passes. It was pretty much what I expected with stock power. This was my best: (Right Lane #619) civicquarter by Justin Tilus, on Flickr

    Just over two months of ownership now, and really enjoying this car. Hoping to pick up a FlashPro soon so I can switch between a "fun" tune for the street/track, and a stock (HS legal) autox tune. Results from a couple of recent local events: Pax'd 6th of 67 AXA9 by Justin Tilus, on Flickr...

    Almost forgot - I weighed the car at Nationals, and it came in at 2,758 lbs in HS trim.

    2017 Nationals About a week before Nationals I started ordering parts, and the last few items arrived Friday night. So I loaded them in the car and hit the road early Saturday morning. After driving 1000 miles straight from Atlanta to Lincoln, I arrived on site Saturday evening (9/2) and my...

    Video from the Gridlife autocross. This was my first time autocrossing the car. Unknown alignment settings and stock (130k mile) suspension. Still pretty fun and put down some very respectable times. https://youtu.be/AlkaUdddUC0 rpf1csi by Justin Tilus, on Flickr

  17. Bad Motor Mounts

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I recently picked up my FG2 and can definitely tell the motor shifts back and forth a little between shifts under hard acceleration. I don't know the history of the car, and it has 130k miles - so I'm guessing it's going to need some (or all) the motor mounts replaced. For those who've had their...

    I was able to get a few autox runs in the car this weekend at Gridlife South (Road Atlanta.) Car had decent tires, but still on stock shocks, struts, and swaybars. I was really happy with it's performance. I have a couple videos I can share, once I'm allowed to post links.
  19. Hawk HPS 5.0 - Opinions?

    Suspension and Brakes
    I'm already familiar with the HPS, but really curious about the newer HPS 5.0 version. Has anyone tried the 5.0's? Thoughts?
