And in style eh!!
"smoking the competition" has a new meaning in the ITC 2012

2nd position in the 1st race athough the Tiger finished 17 seconds clear of the second placed car. A 1 second false start meant a penalty of 20 seconds.

1st position in the 2nd race saw the Tiger pull away ceanly to stay well clear of the cars behind - couldnt get much better than this!!

And every race lap was consistently in the 1:58s. Woohoo!!

Can you guys tell me what suspension you use for the car?
I cannot find any proper performance suspension except "gab" for the sx8 chassis.

Try HotBits. Not at a liberty to discuss the suspension on this particular car as I am not involved with them this year.

Nothing available OTS (shocks/dampers) apart from Hotbits, GAB, Pedders and a couple of Taiwan/Asian makes. If DMS still sells them for this car, they're your best bet; but new ones will probably cost as much (if not more) as the rest of the car. The mount points are one thing that Honda changed for the City, instead of using something from the Civic (EG, EK) parts bin. Therefore, nothing available for the Civic will bolt on as they use DW suspension, as opposed to the City's struts.
