The cars passenger side footwell contains the Motec M130 engine control unit, the air pump, control unit and tank for a Geartronics paddle shifting system and an Antigravity super lightweight lithium battery.
One of the key areas of the car’s performance is the Quaife 5-speed transmission. With the Honda, the weak link is the stock transmission which quickly dies even with hp in the under 500 range even with stronger gearsets.
With it being a 5-speed, the Quaife has room for larger, thicker gears and dog engagement which greatly speeds shifting. With no synchros, the dogs also give more room for the gears to be even wider to better handle power.
The Quaife is also set up for sequential shifting as well as paddle shifting. Inside the transmission, an OS Gikken Superlock LSD handles torque distribution. Power is transferred to the tranny via a Competition Clutch twin disc, low inertia clutch and flywheel. Motul Gear Competition Gear oil keeps everything well lubricated.
Here are the Geartronics Paddle shifters mounted behind a Sparco carbon steering wheel.
A Motec C125 color dash display handles driver information and logs data.
The Sparco steering wheel has controls for traction control level, target boost, dash mode switching and warning reset.
The Motec actuated traction control looks at wheel slip rate with lateral G compensation. Tuning the control levels of the system is currently being developed by PZ Tuning.
The center console box contains the brake bias adjustment, the activation controls for the OMP fire system and the switches for the starter, ignition, water pump and fuel pump.
