Just finished my Civic. This body has got the strangest design i've ever seen, it will take some time to get used to :P
Mounted this one a couple of miilimeters to the back than centered in wheel wells.
Creds goes to Aldus for posting/painting this layout in the custom paintjob forum, i just had to try and copy it :P

i just had a quick look at the civic body, and it is infact very similar to the active potenza SP-R.

the rear wing mounts are almost identical, with the civic mounts being slightly further back, and the bootlid on the civic having a lip (like the kawahara is250.

also the civic has the kawahara is250 rear wing, which is very similar to the active potenza spr wing.

these two bodies i am guessing will handle very similar, the noticable difference is the civic has the large and deep front windsheild side pilars which may aid in the front end steering. the active has similar pilars but not as pronounced.

i recon east used the active racing body as a rough template when they designed the civic

will be using these two bodies next week and i'll be able to provide a comparison. Looks wise the active looks nicer

Hi did you mount it as per the hole of the body posts or different? If different, can you tell me the distance between the middle post and the windshield? thanks.

I normally run the same shores at Nationals but 37F - 40R when at club races so it will be interesting to see. Thanks for measuring ... mine has the marks but it seems that some people are saying its not quite right.

Hi, many thanks but unfortunately I did mine already and it ended up at 33mm. I just followed the premarked front and rear posts and that's where the middle one unded up. Hope it handles right because it seems that everyone here too are telling me it should be 31mm.
