With all the suspension development done, you could take the ZX2 and drop in an ITB breathing Zetec, slap on some 275s and jump to FSP :D
Yeah--we are closer. About as close as any non-Spec Civic that I am aware of save for maybe David Rock's Celica. We are putting a new suspension on in the next few weeks...hopefully that gets us a bit closer too. The car has not felt 'right' at all yet--moderate to very underdamped. We ordered some custom KSport "RR" series coilovers (not the basic Ebay 'Kontrols')...that are dynoed and sprung to our specs.

And, yes--FSP would be the natural evolution. I think it would be an excellent car in that class...but until we get a handle on the handling now...
