Haha, on the highway's a given!... I'd struggle to take a minivan :P

FWIW I'm glad its a honda, cuz I put the car through hell anyways.. no time for trailer queens. And yeah, road course will be a different story.

Well... Quaffe LSD, 90duro motor and tranny mounts, custom fitted engine damper and intelligent tuning of the a/f mixture, boost curve and throttle position sensor via my Microtec and Profec allow me to actually have pretty strong take off with minimal axle hop. I'd say in first gear I probably only put out 200 the wheels so the slip, slide and hop effect is minimized but once I hit second gear and the tuning gets more radical I start really smoking.

oh and in terms of road course handling, I'm pretty confident I got you there too. Can we say Tein full coil over suspension?

The car is actually just about sold now as my gf basically has induced me to become more mature with my expenditures and she wants to get married soon so a 50K sport compact doesn't do any good in that area!

I've removed almost all of the performance parts from the car except for the forged internals, upgraded turbo and exhaust work so the car is still fast but not like it used to be. I'm gonna miss her when she's gone but it'll only force me to either get another "project" or turn to 2wheels for my high powered adrenaline rush required once snowboarding weather goes away.

I say gad damn lise, quite a beast u got there... I never got that heavy into modding only cuz I leased my car while going through university, so its all bolt-ons fer meh :P Now I'm at a point where I can really begin to mod if I wanted to, but I'm at the stage where I have other things I like to spend my money on now... plus Prelude's aren't good cars to build for speed, but its a great all-around car. And if I could afford it, I'd rather buy a dedicated track/Sunday car; ariel atom?! muahahahha

One thing I regret doing is not putting an LSD this year in when I had the tranny apart, but live and learn I suppose.

The bike will definately get you your kicks... I've done tons of research on them, cuz I plan to start riding next year...

Yea the sway bar should last forever as long as you don't hit something the bushings around them can rot out and tie rod ends have ball joint type things in them that can go bad so that I can understand.
