I was tempted to do a Mirage once as a Civic alternative. I watched a fair few Mirage Cup races so I knew you could make one of these cars handle.

Looking at your mods list in details there's a whole lottla non-JDM stuff listed. Cheap stuff/custom stuff. Is that because they don't make JDM stuff for the Mirage? Just wondering. Like do Tein make a set of high end coilovers for this car? Do Cusco make braces and sussy components for the Mirage? Do HKS/Fujitsubo etc. make exhaust systems for the Mirage? Ralliart? Never looked into it much, just curious.

Justin, not everyone is loaded like you mate.....

Iced dood, very neat street car mate... I like the whole KISS concept

Justin, not everyone is loaded like you mate.....

Kelvin I don't think I deserve a narky response like that from you. I wasn't having a go at the guy. I was merely posing a question of genuine interest. That question was: "Is there much JDM aftermarket performance parts available for this model of car?". By no means was I suggesting that iced was poor, thus not able to buy expensive JDM parts for the car. I mean, this is a JDM focussed forum and surely it's understandable that I am biased towards Japanese performance parts and brands for Japanese cars?

Just been doing some research, looks like Cusco make everything you need for this car suspension wise. Good to know. Speaking of Battle Spec: I like this!

PS: Holy shit I just realised the interior of the Mirage is exactly the same as the interior on my EVO

On semis you should be set for a 1.20! I think the Mirage Cup cars do 1.10 around Wakies?

26-10-06, 11:15 PM
ive added a pic of the engine bay.
i hope the mirage is enough jdm style for y'll 8)

as Justin mentioned, i know not everything is 'jdm' persay, but its my attempt to make it go fast and still have the jdm style. :wink:

at the momemt though it has RS+M's and APX lugnuts (not shown in pictures). It should look more agressive once i fit Cyborg skirts. this should fill the gap since the car is only lowered 1.5inch (for drivibility and performance sake rather than just looks). :twisted:

im glad no one is dissing the only Mirage on the forums. :D

01-11-06, 04:36 PM
i prefer whiteline suspension stuff over most jdm stuff as its suited and tuned specifically for aussie roads

i mean, yes i do believe that JDM (cusco) components would probably be a better alternative on the track over whiteline gear, due to the much larger R&D budgets they have available, but srsly, for day to day driving and some "moderate" fun in the twisties, i gotta say driving with jdm suspension isn't optimal

even tho this is a JDM forum, don't be so discriminatory against anything not made from japan. Yes japan makes great auto parts, but theyre not the only ones

01-11-06, 04:46 PM
That's an awsome mirage!!!! Best example I have seen.

01-11-06, 06:18 PM
New sideskirts will go along way I rekon mate. Should look heaps better.

Keep us updated!

01-11-06, 06:39 PM
im glad no one is dissing the only Mirage on the forums. :D

Since when is yours the only mirage on the forum. I have one too.......that's before my silvia. Here's a poster pic of her. Not as mod as yours, but i still love it. Only had Peddler's front strut bar, Peddler's lowered springs, Lancer MR rims, Cat back exhaust, Autometer Tachometer and a geniune "evolution" badge :D

Go the Mirage :D

01-11-06, 06:41 PM
Hehhee.. Peddler's.

03-11-06, 02:13 AM

29-11-06, 02:57 AM
Jesus man! that looks awsome!!! Very nice Mirage you got there.

29-11-06, 12:36 PM

29-11-06, 02:45 PM
PAINT THE Door WINDOW surround, or even cover it all in black vinyl ... will look 10x stealthier with your tint :)

01-12-06, 11:22 PM

07-01-07, 11:23 AM
thanks guys.

shit happens and now bigger brakes are on the way to replace slotted rotors with semi metallic pads.
going in soon are lancer GSR front brakes which are same as Mirage Cyborg ZR/RS.

07-01-07, 12:18 PM
If you need a set of GSR front brakes i have some i took off yesterday you could have for pretty cheap :)

09-01-07, 11:19 AM
things change
you said you were gonna get a liner too

15-01-07, 12:39 PM
I had a run with iced last night, this thing handles like its on rails.

Now it just needs an engine upgrade :)

16-02-07, 06:24 PM
I said I was going to get a liner, but I got 1/2 of one hahaha

whats a liner..

havent been for a drive with u Henry for a while.. catch up soon

16-02-07, 06:35 PM
liner = Skyline ... meaning he got the RB20 from a skyline in his 180 :)

10-03-07, 02:11 AM

Worst quote ever! JDM parts are the only one! :)

10-03-07, 03:57 AM
since having the cyborg/gti brakes with slotted rotors on my car ive got myself a present.
-> a set of ebc greenstuff.

i cant wait to give them a whirl on wakefield park or some random roads hmm

15-03-07, 01:48 AM
