Round 2 of the VTEC Club – Chuckwalla Valley Raceway

Round 2 of the VTEC Club – Chuckwalla Valley Raceway

Round 2 of the VTEC Club was held at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway back in early April. After making some big body/aero changes, Phil Robles wanted to go and test the car, and make sure everything was in place before moving on to the next stage of crazy updates.


Phil also wanted to go out and try to improve on his personal best-timed lap. Unfortunately, we were not able to go but we were paying close attention to what he was doing out there. At the end of the weekend, he was able to set a time of 1:56.819 which was the fastest time of the day.


During the Redline Time Attack he was able to post a 1:56.494, which is his new personal best; however, his GoPro was not able to capture this flying lap.


I was talking to Phil the weekend after and he was telling me that he was reviewing his video.


“Chief, I am a little upset, after I saw the footage I knew the car had another second in it.”


I love this about Phil, chasing none other than himself and trying to always outdo himself. As it is, this time is ridiculously fast for an almost stock K24A engine. Upgrades to power and drivetrain are coming soon for Phil’s Civic and we can’t wait to see what kind of times he starts setting down.


I am not sure how the conversation started but it ended up with me doing a quick edit on the video and adding some small graphics.
