    It was mentioned on slashdot and I made a post about it on redpepperracing... So very many cool things could be done for the 1st gen crx/3rd gen civic that don't exist... throttle body adapters, turbo manifold adapters, stronger brake caliper brackets, and more. Hasport dosen't make the mounting bracket for our cars for the cable to hydro tranny conversion they sell... now they don't have to. :)

    There software is crap.
    I tried importing an autocad.dxf which it did fine.
    tried doing a job/price and it just bitch about this line interscts with this line.
    things line doesn't have an intersection blah.blah. blah.
    It also doesn't generate drawings liek a normal CAD package.

    So basically you've go to try and learn there system.

    Also, I'm sure a local machineshop can beat there prices.
    I jusy had a complex final test fixture machined at a shop in New Jersey,
    holding tolerance of +/- .005 , and it only cost $330 , abut 6 hrs of labor at $60.hr
