I did a small update! Also, I realized some of the pictures that are linked from Facebook aren't working so I will have to re-up them on imgur so they work. I'll get around to that eventually...

Wow. That's gonna be some crazy weight distribution right there haha. Maybe the motorcycle engine or a compact rotary would have been a better choice? But what the heck do I know, best of luck!

EDIT: did some searching and while I now realize the rotary would be unreasonably difficult, this guy's build is awesome enough to almost make it seem worth it haha:

Holy crap that looks insane! Definitely bookmarking that one!

And yeah, it's gonna be interesting to see how I am going to have to set it up. I am doing a large fuel cell in the rear to hopefully balance things out, but I might need more ballast in the back than that. Maybe I should just put a huge wing on it?

Put a full size car battery in the back.

Or put the engine in the back, make it mid-engined. That would be fun. You'd have plenty of leg room, too.

Hey Dave, since you're an Integra guru I might be asking you some questions soon (especially about wiring), so be ready!

Yeah, there is going to be a full size battery in the back, I'm not sure if it'll be enough though, so we'll see!

But really, how are you a mod? Not being rude, just a sincere question.

My memory of 45 years ago says the fuel line runs over the top of the rear subframe and you should have fitted it first. But I may be thinking about the Hydrolastic pipes and yours is dry model.

You did well to get out the subframe bolts by the rear suspension arm outer bearing unless of course the shiny bolt head is just glued in

Also, you could do a turbo Hayabusa engine and be pushing 350-400 whp in a very compact package. With an absurd redline. You could tie it to a busa sequential manual, too. Then you could have a genuine paddle shift manual transmission. Make it all mid-engine/RWD, put some huge flares on the back, and run super wide tires to put the power down.

Or you could do a normal busa engine with 197 hp, yada yada, blah blah blah.

Turbo that shit.
