    A couple of weeks ago I ran my circle track car into the wall pretty good and tweaked the frame to the point that the front of the frame horn is touching the front tire :eek:.... so now I am in the market for something new. I have been kicking around the idea of looking for a CRX to use as my next car because they are so light.

    I was just wondering, since I would like to do this on the cheap, how much more power would I see by shaving the head and running race gas at the track?

    Also how much of a difference would I see between a d15 and the d16?

    Lastly... would anyone happen to have a very junky/parts car crx that runs that they would be interested in letting go off? I'm looking for somthing in the $500 range.

    Thanks

    D16 will have a tiny bit more torque. Shaving the head all depends on final compression. You'll gain a few hp.. Not much.

    If you do this with a CRX, please do it with a beater.

    If there are no rules in the circle track.. Get a short ram with a giant filter and a side exit header. Should net you some good power on the cheap.

    Oh, trust me, I'm not looking to take a good CRX off the road. What I'm looking for is one that has been wrecked or rusted and degraded beyond repair. I thought that my CRX was too nice for this, and it was worth about $1000 when I sold it, lol.

    I just wondered about the shaved head, because a couple of the other cars on the track just rip and I was pretty sure that's what they were doing. The only think that we can change on the engine is to run 2" exhaust.

    Would a port/polish wake these things up at all?

    That's pretty much the car that I'm looking for, but unfortunately I don't have a motor :(.
