Wow. Nice job.My first AutoXish driving event in the Integra. Made it out to one of Caffeine & Octane's "downforce battles". Short summary: car did great. Actually mind blowingly good for stock everything.
The full story: Normally would take my Camaro to this kind of thing, but the course looked pretty tight and it was snowing on the day I had planned to awaken the Camaro from it's winter slumber and swap over onto the race tires so I figured I'd see how what the Integra could do. This event is a head-to-head style, so it's just you versus the other car you're on course with - no times. But you can't really pick your opponent as you're in separate lines that you can't see the end of and are both different lengths. Started off winning my first two races against a built Crown Vic and an IS300, then the IS300 came back and got me in the next event(found out later that his first race he had locked up the brakes and had to reverse away from a barrier, definitely would've gone a bit harder if I had known that). Lost to a Cooper JCW on some super 200TWs(duh). Won the rest of my races against a variety of Miatas and BMWs and an S2000, all of which were on summer tires and had various degrees of track prep. Had a particularly entertaining race where I tried to use the "auto brake hold" feature to hold the car on the line while I built up revs for the launch, and then when I did launch it set the parking brake and I came to a stop in a cloud of smoke 20' from the start line... For the record I still beat that track prepped Hyundai Tiburon . Ended up on the line for my next race, 1 win away from making the shootout. What a blast!
-dont use auto brake hold as line lock. It doesn't like it and can set the parking brake on you
-I wouldn't run much below 40psi in an AutoX environment on the stock tires, they will start rolling over
-square tire pressures balance out the handling quite nicely
-1st will blow the stock tires off even with a low RPM launch, so no need for high revs or lots of clutch slipping
-LSD driving characteristics are interesting with VSA off, can get some mad lift-off understeer if you push too hard late in the corners - definitely preferred the "slow in fast out" approach.
-idle stop disabled
Thanks!Wow. Nice job.
It seems the course you went to has everything played out well. I have never been and only seen videos of cones layer out. It seems confusing where one is supposed to be but this course seems to have better markings.
I don’t believe that camber bolts can be used on the front suspension. There is supposed to be an alignment pin on the top of the strut tower that can be removed, after which you have a degree or two of camber adjustment available. My car is still at the dealer having accessories installed, so I haven’t verified this. Look at the 11th gen Civic sites.Answered my own question.
Front camber -0.4 and -1.0.
Rear camber -1.3 and -1.7.
Rear not adjustable.
Does Honda make any crash bolts for this car that are scca stock legal?
