Travis Gottwig: 1992 Honda Civic Si

Travis Gottwig admires and appreciates Honda's take on engine technology, so he knew where to start when looking for an all out racecar platform. Gottwig explains his choice: "The 1992 Honda Civic Si was a cheap everyday car that had independent suspension and it handles quite well from the factory." The perfect recipe for a racecar project!
