    i would go the s2000 route myself to keep the weight balance at least close to
    stock v8s are damn heavy

    You know you can drift in a fwd car right? Its a lot harder to maintain the slide and it doesn't look as cool but it can be done.

    Dude your so stuck on the s2000. The amount your gonna spend on making it RWD. You might as well just get an s2000................................see problem solved.

    Mid engine RWD would be the easiest if you want to stay honda. and easiest is no where near easy. There is a MR Integra on Team-Integra.net. It's cool to look at and supposively drive, but for the money spent I would rather a honda with 500-600whp.

    I friend and I were considering the same thing except with the drivetrain out of a 92 turbo rx7. We bailed on it before we got too involved.

    There is a shelled out 1st gen sitting infront of some place around where I live. I'm thinking about offering them like $100 for it and droping a MR2 set up in it. Mostly just to see it done.
