The Straight Story Pt.7

May 1, 2004

Honda Tuning reveals the blood, sweat and tears that go into creating a competitive all-motor drag car by building our own CRX racer. For part seven the techs at Serenity Sound & Performance bolt up the tranny and squeeze the plant into its new home, an ED9 CRX Si chassis.

Hey, kids, welcome to chapter seven of the project with no end! Serenity technician Vy Le gets things rollin' by installing a pilot bearing into the Advanced Clutch Technologies XACT flywheel we'll be using. The CNC-machined piece is forged out of chrome-moly and comes pre-balanced, making it ideal for racing.Le uses a piece of wood and a non-impact mallet to evenly tap the bearing into place. Admittedly this is sort of the ghetto way to do this (if you have access to a press, use that instead), but it worked for us.

NEXT TIME: We've got axles, extended wheel studs, and Lexan comin'--see you for part eight!

People often complain about not having enough time to finish up the little details before SEMA arrives and we can relate, especially considering all we had to do to get Si ready for the 2019 show.

Electric vehicles usually have a stigma of being A-to-B commuters. That is, until Tesla debuted the Model 3 Performance which is specifically designed to take down BMW's M3.
