Thought it would be fun to start compiling random 626 racing videos, be sure to check non-youtube sites as well!

Shaky Cam video; 

 

 

Supposedly, Supra, MX6, and 626 all turboed (but I doubt it).

Apparently this guy (named Mark) thought he was racing a 626, which actually looks to be a 626 (I don't remember any 2 door versions lol!)

This one is a little different than the others, but enjoy!

 

(can we verify this is a 626?)

Here's a couple vids from my 24 Hours of LeMons '93 626 racer.  Both I have previously posted in my build thread.

Here's view of our 626, now yellow, passing one of our competitors in the last hour of our latest race.

Man that 626 looks like it was flying.  That was an awesome pass and drive away.   Thanks for sharing I really enjoyed that.

Looks like a 2 door to me :) You guys would call it MX6, but it was named 626 in europe. And that sounds (and look) pretty eastern europe to me :D

Here's another of our Yellow 626 LeMon's racer.  You can see it in the first 3 minutes of this vid.  This is from the same car in the video above.  BTW, it's a Civic Type R, yes our 2.0L I4 626 is running lap times with a Civic Type R.  But in that team's defense, they have one or two drivers we can't hang with.  This driver is running my speed and after he catches me dealing with a slower car I wave him by (he has a lot more acceleration than we do.  Well, he gets too excited and puts it off track in the very next turn :-)

That track looks rough.

The particularly rough short straight is not a normal portion of the track.  It's historically just been a connector used by support vehicles.  For this race, they choose to use it to shorten the track and keep the low number of cars (<45) in contact.  It was a bit rough, but I thought it was a fun challenge.  There was actually a pretty smooth line through there and I was catching much faster cars all day.

Driving the 626 looks a hell of a lot easier than the Civic.  For an endurance race the Civic looks punishing.

ECR is a pretty rough track.  Even the 626 will beat you up.  However, the ride in our 626 is a little nicer than the Civic.  The difference is the springs.  They are running cut springs and we are running the cheapy Megan lowering springs.

 

Here's a lap and a half view from our 626 with one of my teammates.

 

 

You do bring up a good point though.  The 626's longer wheel base makes it so much more predictable.  The rear end does not rotate nearly as fast as the Civic or my girlfriend's Mini.  In fact, I trail brake it a lot to get it to turn in a little quicker.
