EF Civic/CRX Fuel Filter Replacement
 
07:10
Join me as we change the fuel filter in a 1989 Civic Si and deal with the unique banjo bolt that can make this simple job trickier than what you would expect. This same fuel filter is used in early Accords, Preludes, and CR-Xs. Honda redesigned the bolt starting in 1992, simplifying the task, but if you're stuck with the old bolt, hopefully you find this video useful. Music used in the video: Song: Cartoon - C U Again feat.

Watching suspension in motion
 
06:26
At my wife's suggestion, I put a camera on the rear bumper to watch the tire as we drove the course. She just wanted to watch the tires lift off when we turn, but what I captured contained a whole lot more. Watch as the tires flex, lift off, melt, lock up, and change camber all in a 40 second autocross run.

Testing the Legend of the Lightweight Japanese 1989 Civic Si
 
06:09
I put the rumor that the 1989 Civics made in the Japanese factory are lighter than the Canadian Civics to the test to determine which is the better chassis for autocross by weighing the cars and then weighing the parts on each of them.

Buying a CRX/Civic for Autocross
 
15:36
While the CRX and Civic make for great platforms for the Street Touring class in autocross, these nearly 30 year old cars have a very low chance of making it through with all of their pieces in tact. Given the particular rules in the SCCA rule book, there are a number of things to watch out for with these Hondas that might end up with runs being invalidated.

1st Real Autocross in the CRX
 
08:22
Finally the CRX is up and running with all of its mods in time for an autocross event. Time to find out how it does. Is it faster than the Civic? Will it be all over the place with oversteer?

Finding Oil Leaks with Fluorescent Engine Oil
 
07:46
I've been having a problem with one of my Civics burning oil and leaking all over the place. I stumbled upon an engine oil that has an additive to reduce wear and protect the engine, but it turns out that it's fluorescent too! I had the idea to use the oil to try to find leak. I also wanted to see if my engine burning the oil produced smoke that glowed in the dark.

Bucket seat versus stock seat at autocross

Does a Dented Exhaust Reduce Power?
 
04:23
When I bought my current autocross car, the aftermarket header downpipe had a nasty dent that I think was blocking flow. I set out to test how the car accelerates with the dent, and then after replacing the bad header with a new pipe, I tested the acceleration again.

Getting the CRX Ready for Autocross
 
12:27
After a failed attempt of an autocross event with the CRX on stock suspension, it was time to upgrade the CRX. This time, we are installing the Ground Control coilovers onto the CRX, as well as an ST suspension sway bar. Hopefully these two combined will keep the CRX under control at autocross!

I Saved Money by Diagnosing My No-start No-crank Problem
 
10:58
My car was having a problem where it wouldn't start and refused to crank. Usually the solution would be to buy a new starter or a battery and throw parts at the problem until it worked. Putting in a starter probably would have worked, since I would replace the wires, but would be a huge hassle. By diagnosing the problem and spending time with the car before buying anything, I fixed it for free.

Finally have a chance to be back at autocross after a month long break. I had offset tires with Dunlops on the rear and Bridgestones in the front. Surprisingly, after some initial oversteer on the first run, the car was planted in the rear. I analyze my final run to see what I could have been doing better.
