Are those whistlers? Car looks insanely sick.
Yup, it was the first EF on these KR1's. I hope this company fixed their finishes on their wheels cause they were terrible which is why when I bought my Legacy GT wagon shortly after selling this car I got another set of their 18x9.5 KR1's and had them powder coated bright white.

Well its been nearly a month since I ordered my coilovers and theyre still not here yet. But I guess thats just the times we're living in now where everything takes forever to build or worse is on backorder. I was told that they should be shipping this week sometime and I for sure hope so cause my rear shocks have been blown for all of 1.5 months.

Ive also partnered up with APR Performance and will be getting their GTC-200 wing with the 2.5" risers. Ive been doing A LOT of research on how running wings on FWD cars make a difference when on track. It should help with transferring the weight distribution from sitting over the front wheels to a more centered position on the car, obviously helps with rear downforce at speeds past 70 mph, and can aid in braking and improve understeer. Besides, Ive never had a carbon wing before on any car and Im a fan of them. I really loved the J's Racing wings on the 8th gens.

This is the wing but on an RSX and it looks like he's running 2, 2.5" risers. Im going to be doing a lot of testing with this wing utilizing the risers, no risers, more risers, angle, etc.

wish i had a track close by so i could track my car and justify a wing on my car. driving to and from work just isnt a good enough reason.
haha I know some ppl are gonna hate it but I havent seen a lot of sedans with them, especially in the 9th gen community. Most tracks near me are within 1-3 hours, same with the mountains.

From my location
VIR - 2 hours
CMP - 1.5 hours
Road Atl - 2.5 hours
Charlotte Roval - 15 minutes
Atl Motorsports Park - 2.5 hours
Roebling Road - 3 hours

Tail of the Dragon - 3 hours

Also I live 1.5 miles from work, I guess I could walk there but there's a big hill and Im fat

My closest is 3.5 hours. But I'd be scared to break something there and have to pay to tow it home.

Same here. Closest is some hours away and I don't want to drive through the desert both ways in the car that I plan on beating on while at the track.

So I have been talking with APR for the last 2 weeks. Since they dont make a direct kit for the 9th or 8th gen civics, I am gonna run with their universal kit. The dimensions of this wing are 60" long with the pedestal width (center to center) being a standard 29.5". They do offer custom pedestal widths at no extra charge so after a lot of measuring I am going with a 34.5" pedestal span. This will give about 6.5" of space between the edge of the trunk lid to the edge of the pedestal mounts on each side.

I wanted to span it a little wider but I would have issues bolting the wing down from the other side of the trunk (theres just a lot of material in the way to drill through on the backside).
