The CRB welcomes member comments, particularly from those directly involved in Formula Ford, on the following topic.
The CRB has received a proposal from Honda Performance Development (HPD) to include the Honda Fit 1.5 liter engine in the Formula
Ford class. The proposal includes a general presentation of the concept, which is summarized below, and the specific FF rules changes
that would be necessary. HPD has also submitted engine dynamometer graphs comparing a restricted Fit 1.5 liter engine and a current
“National level” Kent FF engine. The restricted Fit engine produces slightly less horsepower than the Kent engine with a nearly
identically shaped power curve. (The testing was done on the same dynamometer on the same day by a well known FF engine builder.)
The Fit engine has been installed in a DB-1 chassis and has undergone over 200 miles of testing. HPD will present the car at Road
America during the 40th Anniversary Formula Ford races, July 24-26. If member comment is favorable, the complete rules changes
will be presented in a future FasTrack.
Yes we can get stock FIT engines. At this time im calling HPD for more info.
