Hey guys & girlies, SRinc. here with a open-ended question and im really lookin forward to the feedback and replies. GT has always had a healthy variety of Civics and Teggies, remember the EG 4 door from GT 2 or the Integra GS-R from GT1, i decided to take one Integra and one Civic and put em on a few tracks and see wat the end result would be. The race was set for a 98 EK9 (370hp) vs 99 DC2 (388hp). Now your probably thinking the Teggy has the upper hand with 18 more HP, true but the Civic weighs considerably less and also has a later VTEC engagement that kicks in at 6200 RPM on the B16B and around 5200-5300 RPM on the B18C*. What that should mean is a screamin' kick at mid-to-top gears in the EK, while the Tegra uses its a lower RPM the response isnt as "umpf" like in turn it pulls from a lower RPM and keeps goin till the gear tops out. The pros and cons could go either way here. With the cars prep'd, oil changed, and car washed (dn't ask why i wash'd em LoL), and final tweaks done with race tires equipped i randomly selected two of the three tracks, Laguna Seca and Mid-Field Race Way. Now the third took a while to come up with but i landed on and ended up going to Tokyo R246 for the first race. Each session 3 laps with the best time recorded, the ITR was up first... First Session DC2 (388hp) @ Tokyo R246 L1: 1'54.244 L2: 1'53.852* L3: 1'54.234 First Session EK9 (370hp) @ Tokyo R246 L1: 1'53.698 L2: 1'52.384*(**) L3: 1'52.812 Second Session EK9 (370hp) @ Laguna Seca L1: 1'40.995 L2: 1'38.463* L3: 1'38.791 Second Session DC2 (388hp) @ Laguna Seca L1: 1'38.289*(**) L2: 1'38.298 L3: 1'39.653 Third Session DC2 (388hp) @ Mid-Field Raceway L1: 1'22.040 L2: 1'20.438 L3: 1'20.327*(**) Third Session EK9 (370hp) @ Mid-Field Raceway L1: 1'21.866 L2: 1'23.359 L3: 1'21.600* Conclusion, the ITR takes fastest lap on 2/3 IDK what happened on Tokyo R246 the Civic handle alot better there. On Laguna Seca, i thought it would've went either way, but the Integra put up a faster time and handled better in California then it did back home on Rte. 246. Mid-Field Raceway was next and on the first lap with the ITR i knew it was taking the cake here but the Civic Type-R didnt show up with out a fight, minus a mis-shift on lap 2 it was shaping up to be good battle. Also i should mention the two Hondas do have a feel of their own. The Teg feels more torquey and snug out of corners while the CTR is more revvy and bouncy in and out of turns, drove like a Honda on cut springs if you kno that feeling. So it made for a balanced race in the end. No real winners here just a test, pin your CTR vs your ITR and see which comes out on top, will it be your B18C Integra Type R or your Civic Type R's B16B... * VTEC engagement based solely on STOCK JDM B16B and B18C engines.
