I use to race autocross quite extensively. I had many FTDs in 1990 civic with a CRV/GSR hybrid motor with ITBs, a short geared tranny with a LSD, custom spring rated coilovers with custom valving, weigh reduction down to 1900 lb which is about 850 kilo grams (the 1100 KG mini is not light), I ran 225/45R13 for AX and time trail, and 225/45R15s for track days and some time trails.
car was fast an capable I had dozens of fastest time of the day and class win in it.
since I had access to some really cool stuff at Beaverun track day and the current owner has since got a GPS I have preformance number on it.
lateral skidpad is 1.57 g this much higher than any production car sold to this day
0-60 is 5.8 second which for FWD car is pretty respectable
1/14 is 13.5 at 105 mph
60-0 happen in about 70-75 feet no abs so up to drivers self anti lock features to keep it from skidding
power to weight is 9.5 lb per HP
car was a blast to drive. I miss it but I was barely using it as I got into skiing.
