all i know, is this damn thing better be quick. Ive never had a b powered CRX before. My GSR was pretty fast, so I know thisll be quicker.

but will it be faster then my turbo hatch? that is the question

yes it is, back when i first got it. GR2's, Ground contorls, homemade intake, custom no exhaust, and zdyne SECU with a slipping lcutch and the smell of animal inside.

also custom grafix on the hood.

and no its not.

and thats not the lowest CRX i ever had. That was dumped on 6" GCs (just screwing around).

the lowest crx I ever had was dropped on 80's accord front shocks, with 6" eibach SRS springs and lowered forks in the front. in the back I modified the upper strut mount and was running a CRX shock with another 6" Eibach SRS Spring. the car was lowered well over 4".

I had to clearance (ie cut a hole in) the upper strut tower to clear the upper control arm at the height.

yeah, not the smartest thing, but at least I had some fun.
