The 3G… ultimate lightweight. Here is a car that weighed around 1800lbs with full interior, race rubber and a heavy autopower roll cage. Dream on 86. This is the car that Ryan and I bought in the fall of 02 after selling our tin can FSP AE86 coupe. Coming from the VCMC, this was a car that had won CSP two years prior, as well as had success on the SCCA National Tour.
It was the first time that Ryan and I spend any serious time in an FF car. It was at first very challenging, but later became quite commonplace and uninspiring despite the fact that it was a consistent local FTD car. For this reason, the car was sold at the seasons end. Still… it remains a car that I love and miss. Never did a 3G Civic look so good. And despite the fact that we only put a few parts on it, we likely spent more hours tuning and tweaking than we did on the previous Corolla.
