The Eibach Meet: A Non-Honda-Lover’s Guide


Today, Jackson Racing kits are based off of Rotrex traction-driven superchargers that, when compared to other types of superchargers, are more compact, have much higher adiabatic efficiencies, and yield far less noise. Inside they feature a traction-drive system that makes power through frictional forces developed through a series of rolling elements. In short, all of this means that torque's on tap all the time.
Among the handful of kits that Jackson Racing currently offers is its Honda CR-Z system that fully integrates with the car's hybrid powertrain. Although Jackson Racing currently only offers kits for the CR-Z and 2006-2011 non-Si Civic, other systems are in development. Right about now you might be wondering about Jackson's older Civic, Integra, and Mazda Miata systems. Prior to re-founding Jackson Racing in 2012, Jackson licensed all of the company's older, Eaton-based kits to parts distributor Moss Motors.
