Spotlight – Honda FWD Sequential Gearkits

Published November 1, 2017 3:26 pm by Categorised in: , , , , ,

The humble Honda Civic is a popular choice for those looking for a reliable family holdall, but it’s the performance orientated versions that have been such a hit with petrolheads the world over. Whether it’s the Civic EJ1, a group of which weaved under a juggernaut in the 2001 crime caper The Fast and the Furious, to the latest Type-R hot hatchbacks, the Japanese star is sought after by many a performance enthusiast.

Quaife manufactures a range of front-wheel drive sequential gearkits for the most popular iterations of Honda’s acclaimed Civic. All are precision engineered and built to the highest quality standards, achieving IS09001-2008 accreditation in the process. Along with the UK, many have been sold to customers in America, where they’ve been fitted to high performance road cars and track orientated racers.

These gearkits have helped drivers set records and win championships, not just in Civics, but also Integra and CR-X coupes. Although too many triumphs to list here, QKE8J has been fitted to 101 Motorsport’s ‘Mighty Mouse’ Honda CR-X, which has just won the World Time Attack Challenge, a victory which comes after many other achievements.
