The Civic fits right in with the NGMT BTTC cars, quite possibly the NGMT cars are based on the Civic.

One inconsistency is that the Civic's SOFT tires have blue lettering, the Civic's MEDIUM tires have magenta lettering while the NGMT SOFTS are magenta.

Unless I can get info from Studio 397 or NGMT or access the tires files, the best we can do is test to try to figure out the correlation, if any. Lap times were comparable when on SOFTS, getting a feel for tire life would next.

In Workshop, NGMT mentions using the S397 tires...

Worst case, we leave the Civic out but that would be a shame for a nameplate that set the standard for front drive from the since the '92 Civic EG and the cars that shared its basic chassis.

Sorry, VW GTI's lost the honor as they grew bigger and heavier and Civic EG aero, double wishbones at all corners and 8000 rpm VTEC took over.
