First Start: Innovative Garage Civic

by Michael Chandler

A few weeks ago Jason Smith, of Innovative Garage, texted me and asked if we wanted to film him starting his long awaited Civic race car.  I said yes, and so began the rolling ball.

The car is a pretty basic thing: K series motor, cage, big brakes, fancy suspension and slicks.  All of that stuffed into an EK hatchback with nothing in it to begin with makes for something that looks to be very quick.

This thing is really all about Trent’s video, because a car starting up translates better on video than it does in stills.

 

This thing, along with the Black Pearl, will be out on track on Saturday.  Come check it out if you can, but if you can’t then you gotta wait til I post the photos from Lap Battle
