New track toy

Postby Jay » Thu Jun 22, 2017 5:19 pm

So as some of you know i spent a few years of my life messing about with jdm cars. Parked up and has been for 3 years is my old pride and joy rusting away. Its a crx del sol so not so good for track use but has a stonking power plant we shoe horned into it, lsd, huge brakes and so so much more.

So new plan was to purchase a new civic ek/ej9. Managed to get a 1998 1.4 3door which is the correct chassis for a track of them all.

So started the fun bit yesterday, spending money. 1st purchase was a customcaged fia/msa weld in roll cage

He wanted to put the little van engine in it, but then it would be unfair to other honda's on track :D

Blimey you said you fancied ripping something out. Good vent mate! Haha.

Come on then, stop talking, there's a dash to remove.
