The 2015 Continental Tire Super Street FF Battle 7 looked to be the perfect event to really show what Project 1993 Integra could do on the track. We had the K24 swap, the Jackson Racing supercharger and the lightweight Konig wheels wrapped in sticky Continental Tire rubber. There was nothing stopping the DA Integra from lapping Auto Club Speedway with the best of FF cars in attendance… or was there?

 

At the same time as the Continental Tire Super Street FF Battle was going on, there were also two other magazine shootouts underway. While Project 1993 Integra didn’t perform up to our expectations, it did run around the course quicker than some EXPENSIVE machinery. Go grab the two issues of Super Street magazine if you want to see which GT-R and Supra the lowly front-wheel-drive Integra beat out. Or you can just take our word for it!

 

Nothing but Hondas. That’s exactly what you’ll find at VTEC Academy. Not because some of the other automakers’ cars that inherently drain the life out of the driving experience bore us, but because Soichiro Honda’s passion for motorsports and his company’s ability to express that in the machines they produce make a whole lot of sense.

VTEC Academy is a place for Honda fans who feel the same way and who seek the most accurate technical information and commentary to continue that very legacy and make whatever Honda it is that they drive just a little bit better. And faster.

Multimedia Editor at VTEC Academy
Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
