B16 Stealth Bomber - Rendering

So now I've had a bit of time to think about how I want to tune the Civic for racing and hill climbing I've come up with this rendering based on what parts I'm going to purchase and how they will effect the overall style of the car.

I guess I'm going for a simple Black look hence why I'm calling it the B16 Stealth Bomber, similar to the B-2 Stealth Bomber plate from the USA.

I'll post up some pictures when the first batch of parts arrive from the USA and Japan, I'm pretty excited now that it's actually happening and moving forward.

New direction for the Civic

So now that it's coming up to Winter again, which is always a cold and depressing experience living in the UK, I've decided to take the Civic back off the road and dismantle most of the unnecessary parts and turn it into a track/spring car like I've always wanted to. This will require a fair amount of money and some good planning in terms of parts selection whilst complying with the MSA regulations in The Blue Book.

I'll keep this brief but I'm hoping to realise a dream with this project and actually take part in a competitive motor sport event.

The first port of call is to get the gearbox up to strength with a nice ORC 309 Clutch Kit

I'll add a more definitive list and update with my plans in the coming weeks and some pictures to go along with it so keep it a bit more interesting than just speculation.
