CIVIC4G.COM: Why a 4th generation Honda Civic?
Brandon: Why not a 4g  But seriously... I always loved the box shaped cars from the 70's, 80's and early 90's, even the boxy Chevrolets from the early sixties. Something about the more rounded newer Civics just doesn't do anything for me. That, and because my first car was a 4g and i guess i simply just fell in love

CIVIC4G.COM: What's your favorite mod you have on your car?
Brandon: My favorite mod would have to be the car, I mean it's just so sexy to look at
LOL but seriously, i'd have to say the combination of the Gearspeed transmission, the Quaife LSD, the ETD traction bars, and the motor mounts, combined with a super stiff chassis and suspension make the car feel so solid and responsive.

CIVIC4G.COM: Any future mod plans?
Brandon: Future plans include a fully built motor (Bisimoto Specs), Kinsler individual throttle bodies, AEM EMS, 13"x10" race wheels, Avon A11 tyres, and some custom one-off carbon fiber pieces courtesy of Ten By Ten Custom Carbon.

CIVIC4G.COM: 4th generation Honda Civic for now... or forever?
Brandon: FOR-EH-VER!!! This car will never be sold, so don't bother with an offer. It will one day be handed down to my daughter and hopefully she'll continue to race it. I'm getting her started in Karting next year when she turns 5.
