Default Building a All Motor drag car.. anybody know where to get a honda shell?

Well it looks like we are finally building a drag car. It will be a all motor class car powered by a K series block )Skunk 2's RSX put out 295 HP and around 180 lb. ft. of torque).

We need a body now. It has to be honda\acura. We have kicked the idea around of using my 86 si, but since we have proper funding, we may use a newer platform. Anyone know of a where a stripped or wrecked honda or acura shell might be. We would be interested in RSX, 3rd gen integra, or 92-03 civic hatch.

Just yards. They usually have stripped theft recovery shells.

BTW, this guy knows his stuff, check it out. http://www.ericksracing.com/

To date, he has the world's record for an all motor car:
World Record 6-22-2003
Best ET: 9.99
Best MPH: 133.95 mph

EDIT: All Motor FWD Honda.

W3rd. He is pretty cool. I have talked to him through the 1gen crx boards. We are considering using my old hatch because it would make the perfect drag car. I already set up w\ a straight axle rear suspension, and the suspension setup I have designed should eliminate the need for a wheelie bar. The car is also very light to begin with, and can be stripped to minimum weight very easily.

You still have it? Cool, you can swap out the front for a tube frame.

Yea that is the one I was talking about. Im suprised no one used these cars sooner. Its a pretty logical choice for a fast setup, just not very marketable. Yea its still here its a parts car now.

My buddy has an 85 CRX SI with a fully built engine out of an 1990 Civic SI. He was one of the first to get into the 11's back in 1994. Full interior and everthing... pretty good for back then, common now adays.

That is still pretty good! But the AM cars now are purpose built race cars. Those #'s are respectable for any car you can drive around on the street in.

Honda-tech has some shells for sale right now. I know also there are probably 5 or 6 full drag shells for sale too. But check out a junkyard or two....they should have shells laying around.

EricksRacing crx is looking good right now (bright green w/ flames ) But I don't think Erick is the fastest right now, Leslie Durst ran 9.93 @ NHRA Pomona Finals. But the AM scene is huge now, K-Series are gonna be making a huge statement soon.

I would not use your honda as the wheel base is too short. It will be harder to transfer the weight to the rear with a longer wheel base.

He's making a RWD car?

or, use a wheelie bar so weight does not transfer? I think you made a typo

I have a experimental rear suspension in mind. We shouldn't need a wheelie bar if it works correctly.


The car will be FWD, unless we somehow find a s2000

make a tube frame front end and push the engine as far forward as possible

Yea we will do that, and use a fiberglass or carbon front end. I'll have to get the 04 rule book and see what all we can do. if its anything like the 03 rules then we should be fine. the NHRA rules were pretty ambiguous last season about certain things.
The rear suspension will move the pivot point of the car to behind the rear wheels. so a wheelie bar would be usless.

Nick is right, but this won't be a conventional setup... unless we get lazy. Then wheelie bars it is.

If I could I would. I would buy a god damn 72 nova and drop a alumnium big block in it and kick the crap out ot of everyone. but its not a sport compact - its a domestic tugboat.


Actually my dream AM car would be a s2000 with a four link and a built 3.0 liter v6. It would own everybody.
