2018 Civic Type R FK8
Country flag
Hey guys, I am new to CivicX and I just wanted to share my build. Ive had my Type R for almost 3 years now and I absolutely love it, and constantly changing things to make it personalized and my own!

I recently teamed up with Humza and Thusee at @Unity Performance to cover the FK8 segment for Unity, and to shred up some tires on the circuit with Humza to decide what parts we want to run. Previously, I was more into Drag Racing, and I ran a 12.68 @113 which I believe is the quickest stock block stock turbo Type R in Canada. However, after feeling the repercussions of drag racing, I switched up and put more focus on the circuit. I am excited for more seat time to truly hone in my driving skills.

I will list my plethora of car parts in alphabetical order:

Acuity Full Short Shifter Kit
Acuity Shifter Cable Bushings

There are a few things not listed, like a sweid shift boot, upgraded speakers and tweaters all around, sub, etc., but it sums it up for the most part.

My favourite experience with my Type R has to be taking my tuned out car from Toronto Ontario to Vancouver Island, this experience truly made me appreciate the car more so then ever. Below you can find some pictures of my rice car.. I mean race, hehe.
