WATCH: Project DC2 Integra Baseline Track Test 


We did some baseline track testing of Project DC2 Integra in almost 100% stock form with our friends at Global Time Attack. This test will allow us to find out just how much faster our future upgrades will make the car go around Buttonwillow Raceway’s 13CW configuration. With over 150,000 miles on the chassis, all original suspension components and bushings, no LSD, and OEM replacement tires of an unknown age, our GSR Integra was put to work on a harsher track that requires compliance and balance. We were, however, granted with upgraded street composition brake pads, rotors, and stainless steel lines for the test.

How did the Integra hold up to the tall task? Which upgrades do we predict to make the largest improvement in lap time? Watch the video to find out!

Surprised there was no mention of the ridiculous corner exit wheelspin there must have been! You should consider a 5 lug ITR swap with the associated brakes. I ran regular DC2 brakes with Carbotech XP10s on my D16 EJ Civic (111 whp, 2550 race weight, Toyo RR) result was rapid onset brake fade and extremely rapid pad wear, totally inadequate. I changed to a mix and match set up that lets me run a 4x100 Mini Cooper rotor with an ITR caliper (which is about twice as big with twice the pad area) and the brakes have been rock solid with barely any wear after 5 days. If you don't already have lots of 4x100 wheels, just go for the whole 5 lug set up!

Never knew ITR was 5 lug that's pretty cool. FWD cars with an LSD defy physics, make that one of the first mods! I've been seeing Youtube vids lately that are making me miss FWD more and more.

I had considered the ITR brake swap on my EG and found that there is a limited selection of 5-lug 15" wheels. I did do the poor-man's ITR swap which uses the ITR caliper but with Mini brake rotors. I've been running this setup for the past three years with excellent results. I settled on the Carbotech XP-10's and have been loving them.
