SpeedFactory Tuning’s BLOX Racing SFWD Honda Civic set a new personal best ET yesterday at Auto Club Famoso Raceway with a 8.29/179.18 during elimination rounds.
The BLOX Racing Civic qualified 3rd overall with 8.50 and 8.60 runs, respectively. Both runs were hampered by 2-step settings and new, bigger slicks. “This is a brand new engine that we put in right before we left Tacoma”, says Matt Hurlbut, team manager. “We knew we’d experience certain issues right off the trailer, but the crew did a great job dialing in all the new (BLOX) parts, suspension settings and 2-step… which obviously showed with the car’s new best ET. (Driver) Joel (Sipes) did a fantastic job behind the wheel.” The car’s previous all time best was an 8.38.
The BLOX Racing SFWD Honda Civic also put down an 8.38/178.64 run during the final round of competition secure the class win and first win of the season. “We’re obviously happy with the win, but we’re more excited about our new partnership (with BLOX Racing) and the potential of the car going even quicker and faster”, stated Matt.
