My summer CRX Si has gone back into hibernation again this week.

Last Monday, we broke the record high (82F). Today, 10 days later, we break the record low (15F) with a wind chill barely above 0F and salt on the roads deep enough to rust your ankles :twisted: .

Oh the joys of owning a rex in Minnesota!

I hadn't gotten around to looking at my radiator issues yet so mine is also still hibernating. I got as far as popping the hood release one nice warm day a couple weeks ago but something else came up before I could even go open the hood. :cry:

Don't worry, summer does always come eventually.

And one of the joys of a crx in MN is that sometimes we get a cold snap without the snow or other precipitation and you get to enjoy a bunch of extra hp due to air density. -15F, dry concrete with good traction = :D

Of course that's more often in the fall than spring ...

I took the top and doors off the Jeep and installed the summer half top. Unfortunately, the tops are a total PITA to take on and off over and over. So it'll stay in the garage for this round of junk weather.

Hooray for the beater rex!

You may get a snowstorm of responses to this note - I'll be an early one since I started this thread in the first place. I think I represent the majority on this board when I say we disapprove of people who use the streets to race - and especially in dangerous conditions. We're all into enjoying our CRXs, protecting lives and living smart. There are lots of forums where street racing gets praise. This isn't one of them.

Hope you take this friendly advice which you may not have heard yet since you're a new member.

Thanks!
