When Honda drag racing was all the rage in the '90s, California was the epicenter. Almost all of the significant Civics, CRXs and Integras owed their routes to shops based in Cali. The exception was Jotech.
This Texas-based operation held claim to the quickest Civic in the world in 1999, running a 9.78-second quarter-mile. Jotech also built a Scion tC that would win back-to-back class championships in drag racing. As import drag racing waned, Jotech continued building customer cars to reflect changing tastes, offering various stage packages for Acura, Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Scion makes.
