plus I've got an open rear diff, so it would just be a 1 tire fire instead of a drift

2-low will do a hell of a burnout! Or 4-low with no front shaft... Burning out on 35" M/Ts makes a hell of a howling noise!

Re: Cool video about Auto X

auto-x is fing awesome, used to run a 92 lx notchback fox body that basically had an SVO motor(single turbo 2.3) backed by a t-5 and quite a few other goodies

and to the guy sayin civics are mostly chosen due to cost, your somewhat right, but look at the cars you will be racing in the class.. with just a couple parts(strut braces, lsd, some select gsr pieces) they can be a XXXXing rocket in their class for not more than a couple thou

sure the OP isnt gonna have the fastest thing on the track, but a-x isnt going to be the vehicles main priority, its gonna be his DD, so i dont think he was looking for something that was gonna stand out in the orange forest

well after referencing back to flexedxjs other threads i guess being a DD isnt really this vehicles priority, i guess im reading stuff that doesnt exist LOL

But nontheless a 900 dollar civic is a good baseline, especially the EF chassis, one of the best cars in the class he will be placed into

No its gonna share duty with the Jeep. That thing is staying street legal. My ulitimate goal is to drive it to Moab but I also wouldn't be against hopping a ride on a trailer there either. I use my jeep for more than just wheeling. The civic is just for when the Jeep is low on gas or for running to town to grab parts or something of that nature. PLus I am now getting it for closer to $800. I don't understand him though. I have $500 cash waiting to give to him, you'd think he would have already slapped the head back on and fixed the exhaust.
