While looking through CRXs on the web I started to wonder exactly what makes an 88HF the lightest of 2nd gens. I know it has something to do with the doors, but is there anything else?

http://www.crxsi.com/specs.htm <~~ Link to specs and weights

You remove 20lbs from an 88HF weighs less than 1800lbs!

errr wait, also minus the rear wiper.... :oops:

The '88 CRX service manual says this about curb weight:

Code:
HF:           1819
Std M/T:   1922
Std A/T:    1969
Si:            2017
This manual always refers to DX as "Std". Also that is apparently without A/C as it lists A/C as "+49 lbs"

Max weight (curb weight + passengers + cargo) is listed as 2290 for the HF and 2515 for Std and Si. I have to laugh at that because I have hauled waay more than mine many times.

As far as why the HF is light, don't forget it doesn't have pass side outside mirror either. But that might be more about air drag. Also I think I've seen mentioned on this board that the HF has smaller brakes too.

Related to "wierd things honda does for max mileage" did you know the Insight (the ugly grandnephew of the CRX) motor has indexed spark plugs stock? (They're also iridium) There are 4 different part numbers for the spark plugs, and they differ only in angle between the ground electrode and the threads. There's a stamp on the head casting that tells you which plug type to use for each of the 3 cylinders.
