This is my current project I’m working on, a 2009 Honda Civic based on PRO FWD cars.
PRO FWD is a drag racing class of IDRC (International Drag Racing Circuit), a north american organization leader in the import and high-tech performance event arena.
This class has some particularities, such as:
- Only import or domestic turbocharged front wheel drive unibody racecars are allowed;
- No weight restriction;
- Inline-4 or V6 engines transverse-mounted allowed;
- Stock chassis;
- Carbon- or kevlar-fiber body panel replacements are allowed;
- Air-to-air or air-to-liquid intercooler system may be used;
- Wheelie bars prohibited;
- 72.0mm Max turbo size in all inline-4-cylinder engines.
Knowing that, these are some references I’m using.
Therefore, for this project I bought a Paudi Models Civic.
Although some assembly mistakes, it is a well done model.
Unfortunately, the cost charged here in Brazil makes it not worth buying.
To make the correct scale I choosed to use the GMP 1320 Kings wheels set.
I really liked the tires but wheels should have some detail work on them.
The first step was the complete disassembly to study what modifications I would have to do.
In the middle of the procces I broke the right headlight. This piece is glued and a little hard to take off.
To make a full detailed model, some changes/improvements are necessary.
So, the basic plan is:
- Complete engine bay modification;
- Additional hose joints and metallic braid/twisted lines;
- Scratch build K20 engine and manual transmission;
- New ”JOJO style” front end;
- Remove mirrors;
- Remove parking sensors;
- Add roll cage;
- Scratch build aluminium “Kirkey style” seat;
- Add realistic harness belt;
- Add other many small details.
Some of these modifications are already in progress, but to not make this post so long I’ll put the continuation soon.
Thank you all!
