    Dissecting a piece of Honda history smothered in Mugen and Comptech goodness.

    As early as the first half of the 1980s, Honda sought to capture the attention of American performance enthusiasts. Before that, the company's racing efforts remained exclusively overseas as did the availability of high-performance wares from its affiliate, Mugen. The solution, according to Honda's executives, was to test American waters with the company's first-ever North American racing program, based upon its most performance-minded vehicle of its day—the CR-X Si. Success would mean an abundance of interest in the company's grassroots racing efforts and nationwide availability of Mugen goods through authorized Honda dealerships.
