We received a pretty awesome email this morning from the guys at BYP from land down under. They have been building this car for some time following a catastrophe last year when the original motor only lasted 2 laps before being over revved and blew up. Now, finally finished, they got it out at the track to see what this thing can do.
They have a K24 bottom end matted up with a K20A head and a Kraftwerks Supercharger kit. The car puts down 370HP to wheels, and considering it only weighs approximately 2200lbs with a driver, you can bet this thing screams. This car also has the HR shifter and race cables.
“We’ve achieved a monumental goal this past Sunday at Round 8 of the State Supersprint Championship. We recorded a new PB with a new time of 1:38.0, beating our previous PB by 3.1 seconds. This resulted in 1st in Class 4D, 1st Outright (radical are not included in the outright position) and the QUICKEST Time Attack Honda around Eastern Creek. We went up against some of the quickest Time Attack cars, R35 GTRs, WRX’s, EVO’s, Clubmans etc, and top the time sheet by 1.4 second to our nearest competitor in second. We believe we can go even quicker! Our next goal is to hit the 1:36 barrier with the current set-up.” (BYP).
I will keep you guys updated with this car! Hopefully we will see it beat their current record.
Here is a look at the Civic.
