Hybrid Racing Track Build Part 1.

September 27, 2017 3 min read

My name is Tim Schultz. Some of you may know me but if not here is your chance to meet me! (You can also follow me on Facebook HERE) I started working at Hybrid Racing in March of this year, and wow has it been awesome! I have been into Honda’s for about 7 years and I have had pretty much every possible model of Honda from 1989 to 2000. I currently have two 1997 Civic hatchbacks, one being my daily driver and the other one is my baby that took me 2.5 years to complete. If you look HERE you can see my car in a million pieces, but I am happy to say that with the help of the guys here at Hybrid Racing the car debuted at Import Alliance 2010 and is finally complete, for now (more blogging on it shortly) They always say a car is “never” done, and I am probably the most indecisive person in the world so that statement definitely describes me!

I will be posting every Tuesday the inside scoop and crazy shenanigans that we have going on at Hybrid Racing. When I update this every week, it will include everything from car events and builds to new industry product releases and shaved monkeys. With everything and everyone being super busy I am in charge of this now so if you want to see more of something let me know! But, enough about me, let’s talk about the newest build we have at Hybrid Racing!

We are currently building an EG hatchback for a customer that is mainly for the track. The idea behind this car was a clean and simple car (no jdm glory parts) that would be capable of a fun trip to McDonalds or some laps at the local track. With some seat time under his belt, I have no doubt he will have a blast in this car. From Zeal suspension and Wilwood brakes to a fully built K20/24 Frank motor, this car is going to be sick! On top of making it a race car we also took the time to do a full restore on it. Almost every part will be replaced with new Honda pieces and if they were not replaced, they were cleaned and powder-coated. No cutting corners on this build.

So far, the plans are to add a roll cage, full restoration (color change), Wilwood big brake kit, Enkei RPF1’s, Zeal coil overs, Hard Race bushings, Race Pack data logger, full line of Hybrid Racing swap parts, and much much more. I will add details and pics with each update!

These pictures are to show you how the car arrived from California. It is a 95 EH SI hatch original owner, bone stock!

The interior was mint. It just needed a little TLC, but it doesn’t matter because its coming out!

The owner of this car never cleaned the engine bay, nice new radiator though!

Then we began to tear her down! You never know what you are going to find in a 15 year old car when you pull the interior out!

Pens, crumbs, crap oh my!

A photography brochure!

Cassettes anyone??

Finally all cleaned out!

Time for the dash to come out.

Still pretty dusty though.


Next was to get the motor out:

This car was surprisingly clean for a 95! NO Rust!

Here is the color that the SI is going to be in the near future! Milano Beige Metallic
