transmission, the
performance demeanor of the Accord has increased to a new

integrate useful modifications that give it even more horsepower,
lower curb weight, increase handling performance, and improve
acceleration and braking to practically race-ready levels.

motorcycle racing heritage. Parts of the body that channel air for
