    88 CRX Track Car build

    I know some of you aren't into hondas, but I love them and some you may as well so I thought I'd share. I owned one k swapped car and I ended up selling it and then regretting it since. So this time around I wanted to do the build myself. I also wanted it to be a purpose built track car that would hurt some feelings. So I picked up a retired ITA CRX and dug in. I took it to the track for the first time this past weekend, it had some issues which were expected, but the car is a monster and got quite a bit of attention. Here are the pictures I took along the way over the past 9 months. Hope you guys enjoy!


    This is the day it made it to the shop.

    New wheels on, they didn't fit so of course now it needs flares at some point which I was excited about.

    Suspension install was complete, on the scales to corner balance. This is the weight with a half tank of gas and me in the car. Dry weight is right at 1750 lbs.
