    This Hatchback went 13.5@105. GSR/Type R, GSR Transmission, NO LSD, Street Tires (Notice the VX Wheels)

    Both are built by Neal Sutton, owner of the Red CRX. He is a good friend of mine and local engine builder here in tampa.

    If you are serious about getting a motor built...he is someone you should talk with...

    you better believe it, this red crx has beaten both a viper and a lamborghini on the street.

    very, very fast...and if the driver doesn't have his shit together he'll lose to this little red beast.

    ok now they work. i like the eg, but i dont like the way the CRX looks, it just doesnt look right to me. the rims mostly, but also the way the hood pops out instead of in. mostlikely to accomodate the height of the GSR engine. i wonder where he got that hood from though. the only pop up CF hoods ive seen are for the CRX SiR which has different headlights, but hes got the usdm headlights. o well, its fast and its a sleeper, i would never think that that car could beat mine, but since it can, its all good. :)

    fiberimages carbon fiber hood.

    and he's using hasport mounts, i don't believe he has any clearance issues, or has ever had any clearance issues.

    the wheels are hx wheels, in my opinion hx's or vx's are the best for crx's.

    i believe even with hasport mounts it still touches otherwise it would hang too low, which is potentially worse than touching the hood. i fixed mine by just getting a different hood. but the hood he has is poped up. a stock CRX hood is slightly indented. it just makes it look a little weird thats all.

    Very nice times all motor! Hopefully my CRX can crack into the 13s all motor with a D block. We'll see. The HX rims are on the way too...

    ZC Hood's are popped up as well as teh SiR's

    and when you are on slicks, you shouldnt have to patty wagon the car out of thebox, drop that bitch and launch at 8, you'll never get a good 60' launching at 2800!

    :)

    i'm not exactly sure what he has, only because nobody is sure about his setup because he built it. however i do know that its all OEM honda parts and its naturally aspirated.

    i know this for sure...B16A head, Type R intake manifold, Type R throttle Body, GSR bottom end, CTR Cam/ITR E Cam, Type R valvetrain.

    I'm guessing...Head is milled 20 thousandth's, has type R rods, p73 pistons, compression is around 12.2:1 and he's putting down like 204whp, 135-140 Torque.

    The crx has full interior up front, in the back its gutted. He has drag springs in the rear, and thats about it. And i have personally seen him go CONSISTENT 12.1's in 95+ Degree weather on slicks. This isn't like a one time deal, as he will go to the track and run no better than 12.4's all day long.

    i love fast all motor cars... i'd take all motor over forced ind./nitrous any day. and the fact that is from a 1.8 liter inline four cylinder makes it that much better.
