As much as I love the way that car looks just the way it is, I have to say what everyone else is already thinking. Needs massive tires and box flares!

In reply to Junkyard_Dog: A few conversations with Nascho and I am convinced he could make that car a competent cone carver.

Sweet! Then tint the windows just enough to hide whats inside and black out the admittedly awesome fab work you can see from the back for the super-stealth look.

In reply to JoeyM:

Yeah, Joey--that Monster Civic is probably the most tossable car I've ever driven. Unfortunately, they were having power issues--especially on the last run.. They told me it was effectively running on 3 cylinders, before I started my runs w/ it.

It ran a 45.0 raw (I just nicked a cone) during the heat of the day after the track had slowed. I truly believe it would have been in the hunt for FTD, IMO.

I think it if they can get the power delivery fully sorted, our Northern friends may secure the AutoX crown in the future. My .02...

Not sure of the brand or style, so I'll just call those wheels the awesome kind.

Racing Hart D/Spec Superlative Dish. They look pretty good from 10 feet away, but pretty rough up close. I wish I had the center caps.

Not bad though, considering the development time consisted of running a bunch of concentric clockwise circles.

They should spend the next year developing the car. Next year it will contend for sure.

OZ Racing used to sell some wheels that look close to those.

Now that's gotta suck.

I was really looking forward to see how it did overall. That's a swap that makes sense

Do you mean the bent rim? It came off the car with enough speed to get bent like that when it hit the trailer.

Do you mean the pretty subie-powered 914? Spun bearing...

We had 0 psi on1 cylinder and still managed a 45.7 sec autocross time and a 10th place overall finish - couldnt be happier as top 10 was my goal!!

^^ That was from the red firebird with checkerboard sides. That's the only one I photographed, but they also replaced every plaque under the hood with equally witty stuff.
