Interesting how Fortunes are catching on here. Might have to join in the movement in the spring; new rims look great. :-)b

Anyone interested in fender braces made by Ultra Racing(made in Malaysia). Their cheap and quite robust. Haven't installed them for fitment but prolly will next week.
Here's what they look like. Image

Installed the Ultra Racing Fender Braces last weekend.
I didn't use their included bolts due to accessibility. Instead I opted to use two blind rivet nuts to ease the install and just bolt down.

Install is simple. But I would weld it down instead when i take off the fender again. I highly recommend this reinforcement. Chassis flex is noticeably reduced and is a good investment especially if you have uprated spring rates & intend to track the car.

Excellent choice in rims!! :D

That's why I like the braces I got; don't have that issue with the bolts being inaccessable.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Tommy, I will eventually weld down those braces or switch back to the A-Sport 3 point braces which I never got around to replicating. :?

I see photo bucket lost a bunch of my pictures. Has this happened to anyone? Lots of stuff gone forever. :cry:

Hey guys, just bought a set of tires for track this Sunday and fitted them on the new 8jj Enkeis.
I just need to find a set of 15-20mm wheel spacers for the rear to increase the rear track as I'm still using the 7jj Enkeis and I'll be all set. My tire of choice is the affordable Achilles 123. They go for less than $100 a piece and are semi slicks and perform great for their cost.
Unfortunately, Achilles only makes 15" in 195/50 so although my tires are too narrow for an 8" wide wheel, the added offset and width of the new Enkeis will come in handy as I get more seat time and upgrade the tires in the near future. Additionally, I could fit in a big brake kit too if it calls for it.
I'm just happy I can get more track time with a spare set on hand for the front tires this Sunday. :bounce:

Rear camber -4° / 7jj -41offset RPF1
Front camber -4.5° / 8jj -28 offset RPF1
here's how she looks.

That looks great. I was just wondering about running reverse staggered wheels on a crx.

Hello folks. It's been half a year since my last update. Hope 2016 is treating everyone well.

Not much has been done to the car since a change of wheels other than some solar tint, car was mostly in storage those past few months with just a few weeks of daily use. I also manage to take some time out with friends from the shop for a couple track days at the local circuit. Was awesome.

Car is running like a champ except for few occasional electrical issues mainly related to fuses, some wire corrosion and those irritating bushing wear causing clunking sounds. Track days was exhilarating despite a few beginner spin outs and an outrageous number of stone chips. The engine however ran with utmost confidence. I really whacked it hard.

Here are some none-action shots on the grid.ImageImage

After the second track day, I put the car at a friend's shop for 4 months. During this time, I explored the idea of adding an airfoil and began browsing the web for CRXes with nice looking airfoil. Honestly, I wasn't targeting an airfoil for any performance gain as it isn't a track car, it was just for looks. I kinda grew tired of how my CRX looks and my mind was filed with all sorts of radical ideas.
First up was the J's 3D wing I saw on a EG hatch. I though it had a nice shape that I could carry off on the CRX. It was however quite common to see J's 3D wing in my area though. So I opted for something a little wilder and bigger. After some searching, I came across M&M Honda Racing. Their airfoil designed for the FD Civic caught my attention. And with a moderate budget and some luck, I stumbled upon a replica carbon fiber M&M gt wing locally. The quality was pretty good and the shape and angle were all consistently accurate. The carbon fiber is nice and the finish is good. Feels very solid yet comparable with J's 3D wing weight.
It's not a popular choice here, so there's no local demand here which suits me because I wanted something that was slightly different.
Anyways, I did a mock up for the placement of the wing and angle, prepared some aluminum angle bar and plates. Did some sketches and cut the aluminum with simple tools.
It's finally mounted earlier this week. I know it's a love or hate thing. But I love it because I made the risers & mounting brackets to actually blend with the car better than those it originally came with. The height is 1 inch lower than the roof line. For now I'm waiting for some low profile washer and bolts to come in and haven't decided f I should paint the aluminum riser/mounts black or leave it raw. What do you think? Please leave a comment or two.

did you have to cover those 4 holes from the old edm wing? or did this new wing covered it from it's bottom.

This hatch has been fully shaved. Only drilled new holes for the new wing mounts. My EDM wing was previously mounted using window weld only at multiple points and some spacers to give it a little extra tilt. I will be installing a replica carbon fiber EDM wing soon. So I'll have two carbon fiber wings to give my rear a better finished look.

Hi guys.
I recently acquired a used jenvey itb under $500 and out of interest had it installed a couple weeks back in place of the skunk2 pro intake mani with a 70mm tb. Other mod was having the muffler removed and exit through the right ride with a blox mini race muffler to try and reduce the restriction a little by eliminating extra bends. Prior to these changes, I was roughly in the 180+ whp / 145+ lb/f range. Had my car retuned and I am very pleased with the results. I gained massive usable torque over a wider rev range and the response is indeed as good as they say. Test driving it was very nice yesterday. :bounce: Woot.

Image

Engine
B20a 84.5mm
Wiseco 11.3:1 pistons
Jun3 cams
Supertech flat face valves
Jenvey 45mm twin body ITB
PLM Toda style header
2.5" exhaust
Straight through resonator to a fart can Blox Mini Race Muffler exiting on the right side to reduce bends.
S300
EF8 tranny with LSD

In the near future I will have to find a better exhaust solution to get rid of the noise but for the time being I will rock this exhaust setup until I get tired of it as I don't drive this car daily anymore.

Next year, planned upgrades are:
Better header for more top end hp
Custom exhaust 2.5" to 2.75"(from the bends) to exit with a civilised high flow muffler to reduce noise levels.
Hydraulic tranny with clutch plate lsd
Some track days in 2018 hopefully.

Stay tuned. I wanna upload some videos. :mrgreen:

New page, new pictures in order to end 2016.

Nothing much. Just a new knock off hood and showing off my itb's. :oops:
Image
This hood might get painted next year. Way too many imperfections.
Now my bay temps is significantly reduced. I know it's significant because my thermostat is broken and stuck at open. Water temps are 5-10°C lower compared to standard hood when on the highway.
Image
Image
First thing I needed to do is make a rain shield to prevent water dropping straight into the intake trumpets as the vent is directly above it. I just bent a stainless steel sheet 90° and and mounted it to the firewall. Simple and effective.
Image
Image
And a picture of the whole car as it sits now.
Image
That's all for now.
Happy New Year community. Have a blast of a weekend!
