With Global Time Attack in Road Atlanta Vince will be running in the Limited RWD class on Hankook Ventus TD tires with power put to them via an OS Giken 2 way diff. Suspension is Fortune Auto’s Pro 2 way adjustable coilovers. The 240SX has a full rear multi-link setup made by SPL and the front has SPL tension rods and outer tie rod ends. Rear lower control arms are from Powered by Max while the front has Nismo LCAs.
If you are looking for Vince at Road Atlanta, these pics may not be of much help. He and his teammate, Amanda Carlton, have been giving the 450 WHP/438 ft-lbs torque monster a complete work over in Vince’s home garage – where all of the work takes place. It will have a new livery – that is not ready for the reveal just yet.
It has been two years since Chris Boersma ran Global Time Attack at Buttonwillow where he captured the top trophy in Street FWD and brought it back home to Canada. Chris has been keeping very busy in the meantime, as he fine tunes his red Honda Civic and ensures that it is in top form. With CSCS Chris holds the Super Street FWD track record at Grand Bend and also at Toronto Motorsports Park. He is entering his eighth year in Time Attack and only shows signs of getting faster!
Chris has updated many things during this winter rebuild period and the car has not been on a dyno yet this spring. The old numbers – 409 WHP and 270 ft-lbs of torque – give you an idea of what to expect when the car reaches the track at Road Atlanta.
First on the list of changes is a GTX3076R Turbo By Garrett. That is followed quickly with a Turbo By Garrett Intercooler Core. Then we have a Dynamotorsports exhaust manifold, downpipe, and exhaust. To ensure that the engine is kept cool, the half rad was replaced with a CSF full sized radiator. I think you can see that Chris is aiming higher than 409 WHP for the 1999 Honda Civic SiR’s 2015 debut. The car is also adorned with a very functional Boersma Racing carbon splitter, carbon hood and side skirts. Finishing off the the car’s aero is a Special Projects rear wing and a PCI rear diffuser.
