Joe’s Honda EG Civic

Last Sunday it was a ripper of a day in Wellington City, so after getting burnt all day, we decided to go for a bit of a tiki tour and catch the golden hour of light and take some pics of Joe’s recently reassembled Civic.

From the following pictures you will note a few things:
– It’s pretty low. Low enough that the mudflaps scrape along the road like a bit of colby on a cheese grater
– It retains it’s tow bar – not usually a mod bestowed on a weekend track car, but Joe also uses this as a car to tow his jetski around on occasion.
– the paints a little shabby – yep, it’s a track hack….

A casual Honda D-series motor resides under the lid. In Joe’s eyes this makes it the perfect track hack to learn the ropes in. He can push it to the absolute limit on the circuit, without worrying how much it’s going to cost to replace the motor if he happens to run it a little low on oil round a left hander – they may not be as fast as your sweet 400kw SR20 in your Silvia, but they’re just as fun, and a fraction of the cost to replace when you send a rod through the side of the block. There’s as many D-series blocks out there as there is genital warts in Hamilton – FUCKEN HEAPS MATE.

Anyway, enough shit talk about the wonderful metropolis that is Hamilton here’s the pics of a very functional (unless there’s a judderbar or awkward driveway) Honda EG Civic.

Monthly update

Almost a month without an update here,

so here’s a few pictures from that month that’s been.

Spring has arrived and brought some brighter days to us here in the lower NI.

Our friend from Auckland, Shaun, came down for a LARP camp or something, so we put him to good work putting some suspension in the Laurel when he had a day off. Plenty of good times.

Matt’s Prelude:

Trentham Autocross with the Hutt Valley Motorsport Club

Mother’s day was the day to show your mum how much you appreciate her. What better way to show her that you love her by taking her to the Hutt Valley Motorsport Club (HVMC) Autocross day in Trentham, Upper Hutt? I can think of nothing sweeter.

Here’s some pics from the day.

RD R4T

Forgive me for not having any idea what this car is. It looks dangerous and sounds sweet – so it must be fun.

Nissan Skyline R32

It was so damn good to see Jimmy and his Skyline out from hibernation. Still rocking his old school Bwarp sticker on the rear window.

Getting ready

Lining up for a skid

EF Honda Civic on fire!

This little EF civic ended up with an engine bay fire which was promptly dealt to. A huge credit to the HVMC for having safety procedures so locked down. This issue was quickly resolved before it got really out of hand.

V6 Supercharged Toyota SW20 MR2

MR2’s car be a handful with the factory 2L 4pot sitting behind the drivers seat. This one must be extra violent with a supercharged V6 torque monster screaming away behind your head.

S14 Nissan Silvia

Rich Tucker raising the drift game in his wild S14

Mitsubishi mirage RS

More than your average Mitsi Mirage

DC2R Honda Integra Type R

TYPPUUUU ARRRRHUUUUUU. DC2R Honda Integra. Always a strong competitor in these sorts of events.

Subaru Legacy Station wagon

This Subaru Legacy wagon was out giving it a good stab.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

I think this Evo must have been developed heavily by NASA because it was an absolute ROCKET

Triumph TR7

My British car knowledge does not extend far but my feelers tell me this might be a Triumph TR7(??) Hopefully i’m not far off, and full credit to the owner for giving such a mint old car some stick!

Subaru Impreza WRX

I pine for Subaru WRX Coupes.

Toyota Trueno AE86

Toyota AE86 doing some sweet sweet dirfs

Ford EB Falcon

The Ford EB Falcon is not usually a car you see at autocross. this caged example looked like a shit load of fun though.

R32 Nissan Skyline

Nate brought [PHLEX] along and gave it a good kick! chur boi RB hard.

c33 nissan laurel with SR20DET and R33 GTR wheels

Love this car. SR20 Powered C33 Laurel. Awh jeah.

c33 nissan laurel and rps13 nissan 180sx

Jimmy’s skyline. Good from every angle.

That’s all from me. Once again – awesome day put on by HVMC, particularly cool to see the drift cars turn up and go for a slide.

PEACE.

Matt’s 25th Birthday Track Day – Taupo 2014

Matt Carter – in all his kindness – hired out the Taupo race track so him and his mates could come and fang around for free. I was lucky enough to be invited to the shenanigans that not only unfolded at the track on Monday, but also in town on Saturday night. Let’s just say Sean, Dan, Drongo and myself revolutionized Taupo with our sweet wolf shirts, sick (horsey) dance moves and Drongo teaching errrrrrbody how to ‘dougie’.

Luckily there is no photos of us from Saturday night – however there is a few photos from the shenanigans on track as follows.

Our resident race car wizard, Nathan, also coaxed Richard to bring along his Radical SR3 race car. Powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa engine and weighing 4/5ths of fuck all this thing goes seriously hard.

Birthday Boy Matt suits up ready for his passenger seat experience in the Radical. Not sure if he’s nervous here, or just needs to poo.

All strapped in. Hold on tight brother!

You could say the kid looks pretty stoked after that experience.

Shaun’s B18C powered Civic was going haaaaaard for the morning before blowing a clutch to smithereeeeens! Luckily Shaun still managed to nana it the whole way back to Auckland. Top bloke!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s a pity pictures don’t really emulate noise that well because the 1UZ powered FC RX7 below made the most incredible sound. More pics of this to come, so keep a tab on the blog.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Most people made it out on the track to give it a go. Alex took his daily LPG powered Falcon wagon out on the track for some hoons and to test the body roll factor.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was pretty much a Falcon track day, with Dan also throwing his round a few turns and giving it heaps. Was like the Bathurst 1000, but not really.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jarred was pumped to go in the Eunos Roadster.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

He really started pushing the limits of his tyres and found some opposite lock

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jarred got a bit greedy on the oppo and ended up in the paddock.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Craig drove all the way from Upper Hutt on the day of the track day, did 10 laps, over heated, then drove all the way back to Upper Hutt in the same day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It wouldn’t be a track day without something breaking. Alex blew a coolant hose in the Falcon and had to coast the car down to Repco to get some new hose and fit it in the carpark.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All in all – sick weekend. We need to do this more often, lads.

Oh – and if you’re ever out at the pub in Taupo, and someone tries to teach you how to dance like a horse – just go with it.

We had another quiet Burgerfuel meet earlier in the month with a few old friends.

Thanks to everyone for coming along, was awesome to catch up with you all.

Dom’s CTR. Super clean and tidy

Gung’s super sweet CRZ. I see one of these on my own horizon in the distant future.

A new friend, Dave, turned up in this 1UZ Manual converted 5 Series BMW. So so amazing. excellent exhaust note and a super tidy conversion.

A couple of old cars showed up too. KK’s 308 powered Wagon makes all the right noises.
