READ THE WARNING BEFORE COMMENTING JESUS CHRIST

Sorry to the owner Bill Vander Velde for my horrific treatment of his EG6, but holy cow was it a riot to drive... I am absolutely not used to FWD at all, and I think it's pretty clear ha. Definitely should get a EG or EK to hone my skills some more, I'll see what I can do to make it happen...

HUGE Thanks to all my sponsors for helping go faster!

      Thank you again for driving my car man! I had a blast! Hopefully I’ll get her more dialed in soon!

      You might have to get a little more comfortable with letting go of the steering wheel. And finding the right amount of counter steer I notice you grip the wheel fully in every possible sliding scenario. Where as most times than not, it's better to let the car self steer a little (in a slide, when it snaps the other way), as long as you put focus on throttle input. Because with cars that have proper Castor dialed on, they will auto correct the wheel straight (after it snaps back forward) as long as you let go of the wheel to an extent. When you put your hands back on the wheel, it won't be perfectly straight but you'll be able to feel how much closer it is to straight that way.
      Hope this makes sense. You just have to find that balance with each individual car because every car can have different degree of castor. It relates to castor mostly.

      I understand this wasn't your fault as it's not even your car, but i've noticed with your car which is a RWD, i notice you barely ever let your grip off of the steering wheel during a snap back moment in sliding, I think if you practice that some, it may be helpful overall in the longrun! Awesome driving man, love the channel too

      I also think you might be doing it the right way anyway because after all this is 70+110+mph speeds we're talking about, and all in all, it's important to just re-gain control. However I still think practicing that on a drift track will help your skill of regaining control! But you already do an amazing job. IDK CHEERS MAN

      Very nice videoo i really enjoyed it because I always was fwd car guy. I own ek9 typer and I am like in the opposite position hahaha, I know only how to drive well fwd and not vary good at rwd but my ek9 doesn't have that much oversteer.I don't know if it's because of the bars that type-r has from factory but I thing are other things that matter also as an original type-r, it handles really good. Anyway I am going to sell my car that I really love (and I am lucky to have in my country jdm) but it's time to move on and planing to get an s2000. really love them and your videos really enspire me and learning driving from them :) and I will also need practise when moving to rwd ;)

      Nice, reminds me of my first time tracking a FWD car. Didn’t yet grok that one can just point the wheel and floor it during an oversteer event. Shout out to @bluestreakcorollaxrs!

      People always seem to tune FF this way. There are more ways to get FF to put power down than stiffening the hell out of the rear and ending up with this mess.

      Super soft front and big rear arb increases the vertical force available on front tyres so there is more grip available there - at the detriment of rear grip as you can see here! It’s a balancing act

      I don't believe they are setup like this to put power down, my understanding has always been so that you can get them to rotate instead of understeering.

      Not gonna argue with laptimes, some of the fastest FWDs in Midwest apparently also don’t have front sway bar, but you’d have to have a lot more experience with FF than me to know how to drive it fast and smooth ha.

      Joshua Hebert In reply to NippyMoto

      Jackie Ding a lot of rotation is why it's good to left foot brake because your right foot is ready to give throttle when oversteer acures allowing to pull the front back in line.

      Jackie Ding In reply to NippyMoto

      I actually did try that as well, but this specific car didn’t have any problem getting rotation on entry, it was simply getting too much rotation.

      I have had my EG for 18 years now, love the car will never get rid of it. You should definitely get one, if you can find one with a K20 Type R swap you will have a ton of fun. I would run a front sway bar though.

      If I was sticking with these coil overs I would probably throw in the smallest bar I can find but I’m not sticking with these I won’t but if I feel like it needs one after I change it then I will put one on. These cars need to be driven differently than he was driving, the amount of rotation the car has is a huge strength of the car, the car also has an open diff still so there is that battle to fight. The car is a handful and is still a working progress, I just got it together not even a week before this was filmed.

      Billiam the STIG  My track ready EG had sway bars front and rear from MC2(VTI aerodeck) and tein suspension with 10kg front and 6kg rear springs. Running on R888, it had lift off oversteer on entry, but nowhere as bad as this. Generally, thicker rear sway bar in the back would increase oversteer and thicker in the front would increase understeer. I have been driving on a tight track, so I was either on the gas or the brakes, there were no long high speed turns, so I cant be 100% my setup would work on this track. Jackie is driving it as a RWD, so probably thats the reason he oversteers so much. Love the EG, its the best looking Civic after the FD.

      most people racing these don’t have one, the suspension is too soft for what I’m doing with the car hence the higher speed issues with it.
