I can get you in touch with them. They have added to the team recently, and have some new people that will be driving for the team while Eric is in Japan for a few months. We just set them up with some new DMS bits, so we should see the cars out there rallying soon.

Come on now guys! I know how to build the darn car I just have one question for them. I am wondering how much a new SI might weigh when its ready to rally. A 1992 Civic Si weighed about 2300# and the 2006 Si weighs about 2900#. You can see my concern.
I used to shoot photos with Bryan's mom, Moni, at alot of events as she used to be a regular photographer from about 1997 up until a few years ago. The last time I contacted her was about a year and a half ago at rhourt (at) bbc (dot) net . Sometimes she's hard to get a hold of. I'd put in the header "Looking for Bryan Hourt". Best of luck and glad to see you'll be back rallying in the U.S. again.
We're thinking starting a Fit project as well. The R is getting a DPR Racing Stage VI head (www.dprracing.com) along with a header from SMS Products and all sorts of other goodies. The second a Fit turns up used or salvaged, I'm there. Spoon Sports and J's Racing overseas have already turned out some pretty dang impressive figures with those toys. As for fitting a K-series in there, look at Ford's Econoline diesel vans. If they can stuff a 6 liter diesel in there, you can certainly count on fitting a K-series in a Fit. By the time you get the car and cage it, I'm sure Hasport will have already come out with a hybrid mount kit and AEM/DC Sports will have hybrid Intakes and Headers. It seems like those guys are producing the products before the cars come off the assembly line.
As for Team Honda Research they are still around, but the glory days of Hourt, Robinson and Robinson are over. James Robinson may make a reappearance, but the other two are "retired". I co-drove for Bryan for 2 years in 2001-2002. Eric Heitkamp is flying the THR flag as of lately. If you have any Honda questions I might be able to help you out as I helped build 4 of the cars.
Hey my question would be,
Do you or they have any parts, cars, or stuff for a 91 SI to get rid of? Always looking for more junk to fill my garage with. Just hope they or Matt don't get a G2 car running for STPR. That would make me finish 2 spots lower on course. Might push me to run better though.
