"A few specifics about the car:
Engine: completely stock internals with a Jackson Racing SC (RSX kit adapted to the Si), RC Injectors, DC Cat-back, and AEM cold-air intake. All of the ECU tuning was done in-house. We are running the factory drive-by-wire system with all control systems and emissions equipment still in place. On a Mustang chassis dyno we gained 54HP at the wheels over the stock car.
Drivetrain: Exedy HF02 lightweight flywheel and Stage 2 clutch (great holding power and driveability).
Suspension: Koni double-adjustable front struts and rear dampers. Front struts have Koni adjustable spring perches, rear adjustable perches designed and built by HART using Koni components. 2.5" ID front and 2.25" ID rear racing springs tuned by HART, Progress Suspension 22mm rear bar.
Brakes: Hawk Performance front and rear pads, racing brake fluid.
Body: Seibon carbon hood and trunk, custom carbon sunroof replacement panel, HFP body kit. All airbags and interior panels still in place, rear seat removed.
Total weight loss = 200lb.
BBS wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires, 245/40R17.
The car handled great throughout all of the events, and the JRSC gave us very usable power in all conditions. The rain over the last two days definitely helped our overall position, but we were a legitimate top 10 contender throughout.
The 3 cars that beat us, and many of the cars we beat, had upwards of 500 whp and much bigger tires and brakes.
Mark Davia, The Corcoran's, Jon Krolewicz, Luke Russell, and the rest of the top ten deserve a lot of credit. It's a tough event that rewards consistency as much as all out performance, and those guys knew how to get it done. "
