Revolution 8

The Honda movement in Baja California continues to grow

Week after week, car shows and meets pepper the SoCal landscape and range from organized, licensed events, to social media word-of-mouth free-for-alls that often end up being broken up, rather than reaching their final hour. In the midst of all of the Stateside show activity, every year our neighbors just south of the border, in Rosarito, Mexico, get together for the Revolution car show put together by Brothers JDM.

This year's gathering took place at Pabellon Rosarito, a modern, open-air shopping center loaded with restaurants, big box stores, a movie theater, and more. Extremely popular, the mall is known for being rather tough to park at, especially on the weekends. No matter, the organizers carved out a portion of the parking area to host the 8th annual Revolution event, dedicated to Mexico's Honda/Acura community.

As with previous events, the turnout was huge, with hundreds of builds making their way to the event - some strictly street cars/daily drivers, others purpose-built drag cars with 8- and 9-second passes on their resume.

During the awards ceremony, custom-built trophies were handed out to the winners of various categories, and parts, donated by industry heavyweights like AEM Electronics, Seibon and Supertech, were raffled off to attendees. Another successful event and the promise to return for year 9, as Mexico's enthusiast circle further develops and Honda interest continues its rapid growth in the region.

Heavy Hitters splits time between Mexico and the U.S., attending as many test and tune sessions and track events as they can.

Comprised of multiple high-horsepower builds, the group has earned a reputation for impressive passes and relentless progression and they're only getting faster.

Nitrous lines plumbed into a throwback Edelbrock Victor X B-series manifold; on the hot side, a Sheepey Race hood-exit exhaust manifold does the dirty work.

This yellow DC2 is powered by a K-swap that features a host of Hybrid-Racing goods under the hood. On the outside, a JDM front clip with carbon fiber lip and splitter make up the front, while the sides have been fitted with PCI side skirts and mag blue CE28s.
