RIDING SHOTGUN WITH THE EDITORS

'11 HONDA CR-Z

For our 2010 SEMA/Super Lap Battle effort, we've collaborated with Wraptivo, Tein (again), Mackin (double again), and HKS to build a supercharged Honda CR-Z. Like any good build, the first thing we set out to do was lower the hybrid, which is why it spent the first week of its life at Tein. Outfitted with a set of Tein Super Street coilovers, the CR-Z is starting to live up to its sporty hype.

'95 HONDA CIVIC DX

In a fitting tribute to my column, I spent this weekend swapping out my intake manifold and throttle body back to stock for an upcoming "test only" smog check. Hey, I never said I was a saint!

'93 MAZDA MIATA

It seems like every bolt I turn on the Project Miata reveals a new problem. I put it on jackstands a few months ago to change the oil and discovered a damaged subframe and mis-aligned steering rack, and a leaking rear main seal. After I pulled the trans, I found a severely worn clutch. After that, replacing some leaking exhaust gaskets led my eyes to a cracked CV boot on one of the rear axles, which was plugged into a hub with a worn wheel bearing, surrounded by worn brakes. EBC Yellow Stuff at all four corners to the rescue this month; the rest to come next. Unless I find more problems . . .
