    doesn't matter...more parts were ordered for the CRX today...


    Got some brand new Tokico Illumina's on the way...now I just got to get the adjustable panhard bar, and some rear coil-over's for it...with 450 lb springs....and possibly some camber plates...and then the full suspention on the CRX will be done. I ordered an engine stand and a sand blaster the other night, along with some more stuff to rebuild the car.....and the suspension on the CRX will just migrate over to the civic...and it might be in a race or two this year....hehe

    They love me over there...the last time I went..they threw me a B-day party that I will never forge...3 huge plates of sushi, all the beer and saki I could drink, and I even got some wickedly rare items that day....Japan loves me, her family adores me..and...well...lets just say...I'll come back fully re-charged to do anything...




    as for that wish list and money...swing down here and we'll talk. I can't buy anything with out money...but we have a 2 new laptops, and if we can get DSL hooked up there again when were there..then I can take pics and show you the price I pay...and then you can decide if you want your money to go for that item or not...or if I should look around more to find just what you want...

    People who know me..also knows I'm not out there to dick anyone over...and I try to help as much as possible...and my fee could be a few simple beer's or a hand turning wrenches...or help around the house.

    10 grippy ass tires came today.....all 13"....all with more tread than I thought....and did I mention grippy..... :ph34r:


    Pics will be up tommorrow :)

    the new waterpump, timing belt set, and other parts for the engines rebuild should be here this week also....now to get and adaapter plate made for the turbo for the DX mani I got a while ago, and to get 2 exhausts systems....

    one stock exhaust, new hopefully, so I can get the CRX while it's non turbo thru emmisions, and then after it passes...it will go on the civic...and a 3 inch mandrel bent exhaust fabbed up for the turbo....


    After thats bought...then its on to the interior peices to buy....the sparco seat will go in the CRX, and it will be stripped out for the autocross season...and then after that...I don't know what else to do...but the Civic may inherent the good parts....like the filled bolstered crx seat I fabbed up, the Mugen steering wheel, and other swappable parts...


    now I got to hurry and finis the garage floor, so I can bring the cars in to do.... :(

    13" mugen CF-48 = 11 pounds
    13" Advan A005=10 pounds

    21 pounds per corner=fun
    grip=fun


    the last setup that I had, the 15" konig Heliums @ 10.8 pounds + 15" Azenis @ 21 pounds= fun...but not fun enough...


    the crx is going on a diet this year....as much weight that I can shave off, while adding the best suspention available, and building a reliable engine, sightly bigger turbo, and some cheap shaved slicks....well...it's going to be interesting... B)
