Thanks to Jalopnik for sharing this clip. Because of it we were able to rekindle memories of our youths, when kustom kreations filled our matchbox collections and Ed "Big Daddy" Roth had Rat Finks driving around in massively overmotored rods with giant rodents behind the wheel. Not sure about the driver of this particular CRX, but this thing can probably steal the cheese in any compact tuner showdown. If anybody has any info about how fast this thing is, let us know.

      Isn't that a front wheel drive car?, cause the tires may be on the wrong ends.

      Might as well trick out a Pacer...at least it would be so surreal it make you pause for a second before you realized how goofy it was....

      WOW! that thing is kiler, hahaha

      The video on Jalopnik has it running the quarter in 7 something, I think. (can't watch it at work right now)

      That thing is awesome. The best civic I have even seen
      • 9 Years Ago
      That's awesome. Anyone know what kind of times that thing runs?

      Very cartoonish.

      {attitude = "RICER"}

      I could totally smoke that thing with my Prelude!!

      {/attitude}

      But seriously, I'm thinking someone should make a kit for that.

      I would think about buying it (emphasis on THINK)

      Hahaha, YES Carlton. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

      I can tell you why it's stupid, the big rat motor is hanging out way in front of the front axles. I doubt it "flips over backwards" when that guy stomps on it, more likely it just lights up those big Hoosiers with anything more than a feather-touch of the throttle.

      At least there's no big goofy wing, I'll give him that.

      More proof that just because you can doesn't mean you should.

      You honestly think someone would go to the extent of throwing a monster V8 into a CRX without converting it to RWD neox? I don't see why it's so stupid either Marq. A muscle car engine in a car that weighs probably less than half of what the original muscle car did seems like a pretty good idea to me.
      • 9 Years Ago
      wow, words cannot describe how stupid that is. What a waste of money and resources.....
      • 9 Years Ago
      Haha, looks like that motor will twist that CRX's frame with one blip of the throttle.
