Rywire’s E-AT Civic..#mindblown

This past weekend at the Spocom Show, I had a chance to take a look at the Rywire E-AT Civic. This was one car that really intrigued me. I’ve seen some pretty crazy stuff done with cars and this was one car that had me mind blown! At the end of the show, I got to talk to Ryan Basseri and even though the conversation was cut short for the awards ceremony, what he told me about the car made me want more! He did mention that the car was not done but this Motor is an ITR with individual throttle bodies. Now we’ve all seen that before but what’s interesting about this is that it’s running on a drive-by-wire throttle system. No throttle cable! Also, Ryan had told me that there are no fuses on the car. There was a unit (completely for got what’s it’s called) that sends voltage out to the appropriate sensors.

I probably regurgitated something wrong (there was so much going on that day) but I’d love to stop by his shop in the near future. It’s really amazing when you think about the engineering that went into thsi car. Well, I guess that’s why he won the Best Engineering Award at the the show!
