If you're a hot hatch-making legend like Honda, how do you work out the
reaction to your new car after years without a performance model?
Well, it's simple: you bring along your comeback kid, the new Honda Civic
Type R Concept, here to the wonderful Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium,
you invite along 200 die-hard Civic Type R owners from all across Europe,
you show them the car, and you ask: do you like it?
The new Honda Civic Type R turbo car's
2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC will develop
between 276 and 300bhp according to Honda, which is delivered to the front
wheels via a limited-slip differential and an old-school manual gearbox.
Honda promises this will be the fastest front-wheel drive road car on the
Nurburgring and look almost as tasty as this very menacing design study.
Watch the video to find out what the fans thought of the concept car , and
to hear out our drive in the incredible Honda Civic Type R Mugen.
If Honda can sprinkle just some of the fairy dust of that car, especially
when it's at about 9000rpm, on to the new turbo Civic Type R, and then if it delivers on
that Nurburgring promise of being the fastest FWD car ever to lap the
Nordschleife then surely that'll make it one of the best hot hatches on the
planet. We can't wait to find out.
Redline Review: 2014 Honda Civic Coupe
After an emergency refresh last year, Honda shocks us yet again with
another thorough round of changes to its popular Civic compact car. This
time, the coupe gets a completely re-done front fascia, updated wheels, and
new tech features inside the cabin. Under the hood, we find a bit more
power and a new automatic transmission bringing the Civic up to par with
its top rivals in this extremely competitive class. Are the changes enough
to make this car feel new?

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

Zach's Turbo Civic Hatch Build Update-B20 Clearance Problems?
On this first episode of Zach's hatch's transformation, I headed over to
where the new motor was being pieced together for the first time.
Unfortunately we ran into a little mishap due to the machine shop not doing
the job properly. At all. Only time will tell what the next step is. Thanks

Honda Mean Mower vs BTCC Honda Civic
To celebrate reaching 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, we've released a
video which is a little different to the rest.

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden will be
aiming to keep off the grass when he heads to Silverstone for the final
round of this year's series on 13 October. But he took time out from his
preparations to have a bit of fun, lining up on the grid with three-time
champ and team-mate Matt Neal on a special mower created by their Team
The Mean Mower is a bit different to Gordon and Matt's Honda Yuasa Racing
Civics. It's based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor, but the regular 20bhp
614cc V-twin engine has made way for a 1,000cc V-Twin from a Honda
Firestorm motorbike. This delivers 110bhp, and gives a power-to-weight
ratio of 520bhp per tonne -- enabling the mower to do 0-60mph in under four
seconds and hit 130mph.
To cope with this huge pace, the regular mower chassis has been replaced
with a chromoly spaceframe. Suspension and wheels from an ATV help Boost the handling, plus there's a
body-hugging racing seat and Alcantara steering wheel with buttons for the
sequential gearbox. This drives the rear wheels via a chain to a rear axle
sourced from a go-kart. Yet this amazing machine can still cut grass.
The steel cutting bed is replaced by a lighter fibreglass version, and
isn't connected to the petrol engine. Instead, two electric motors spin a
3mm wire cable at 4,000rpm -- proper blades could be a bit dangerous at
100mph. The Mean Mower is similar in concept to a Yuasa Racing Civic, which
is taken off the production line in Swindon, Wilts, and heavily modified.
While the chassis and body are retained, the interior is stripped out and a
roll cage fitted. New front and rear sub-frames are installed, as are
racing-spec suspension and brakes. And while the 2.0-litre engine uses the
same block as the old Civic Type R, a turbocharger is added and most of the internals
are changed. Total output is around 330bhp, which allows the Yuasa Civic to
do up to 160mph.
But how would the BTCC racer compare with the Mean Mower on a lap of
Rockingham's National Circuit in Northants? The track is 1.7 miles long,
has a range of corners and plenty of grass that could do with a trim...
"The only way the mower could win round here is to literally cut corners,"
said Matt. "But if it doesn't, it has no chance. In fact, I reckon I could
give it a 40-second head start and still cross the finish line first."
Was Neal right to be so confident? The way the mower stumbled off the
starting line suggested so. Its tall first gear makes for lazy getaways --
be too aggressive and the engine will stall. But once moving, the Mean
Mower soon gets into its stride. In a straight line, it's quite impressive
-- but the narrow track makes it tricky through corners.
Still, after 40 seconds, the mower had completed over a third of a lap --
leaving the car with plenty of catching up to do. In fact, the Civic didn't
have the mower in its sights until it rounded the penultimate corner. This
was going to be close. As the BTCC racer entered the final hairpin, the
Mean Mower was exiting it and heading down the home straight -- just a few
hundred metres from victory.
But the distance to the finish line proved just enough for the Civic to
close the gap. In the end it pipped the mower at the post, by the narrowest
of margins. We checked the stopwatch: the BTCC car had taken one minute
18.2 seconds to do a standing-start lap. The mower completed it in one
minute 59 seconds -- a difference of 40.8 seconds. We know who won the
moral victory, though, as the Civic can't trim your grass! Little wonder
that these Honda stars are keen to be handed the Mean Mower to cut some
blades of glory in their gardens during the close season.
