well it's waiting for an EK9 half cut to get a rhd and b16 swap. just waiting till I get the 5grand to get the half cut
edit: the FC I was going to buy sold so I figured this would be funner as people just expect it to be rice. Building a NA 4banger should be fun as well.

I've located a type r half cut, only thing I'd need to do is find the type R wing. Then it would be a full type R clone. I don't want something every ricer has, I want something different. My cousin already has a GSR so I want a type R civic. It would be much easier if US regulations weren't bullshit and I could just buy a type r to begin with. I think sticking with the little b16 will be more of a challenge to make it fast, I'm not going for 1/4 mile it's for corners
looking for something like this with bronze Watanabe wheels

I thought it was dirt or reflection. I emailed Watanabe USA to see if they even make 17's in magnesium, waiting on email back telling my they cost 1500 each or some bullshit.

CTR?

I've wanted a black ek hatch since I was like 14 and my cousins buddy bought one. I've been looking for some non v8 powered car for a while now. I'm sick of v8's I've had 3-4 fast ones now I want a 4cyl or rotary
edit: my dream car is a s15 silvia but I'm not exactly sure what needs to be changed on it to register it in the states

That's what I figured, answer is the same. I should be able to get a lot more races in a civic then I did in my ws6. Ricers pretty much destroyed the civic's reputation in the states. Still doesn't make it less fast when done right.
