Honda Civic Dragster (Need some more ideas)
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 1:21 PM
Just built this new civic dragster. Did a lot of kit bashing, chopped top, shaved door moldings and handles, rear license plates, lowering suspension, chopped front end with removable hood with flared wheel wells, custom hood scoop, motor mounts, front suspension, motor modification. I took the stock motor and turbo shcarged it with a turbo fom a Toyota Supra by Tamiya. The interior is also from The Toyota Supra kit. Fabricated roll bars from alluminum tubes. Fabricatd wheeley bars from alluminum tubing. Fabricated front sub frame from alluminum tubing. Home made sanded front slicks from a dale ernhardt NASCAR kit. Rear custome skinnies. Fully detailed motor, and a Tamiya Acrylic paint mixed to a Candy Orange.
If anyone has any tips for further improvement please let me know. I would appreciate it.

I want to be a race car passenger: just a guy who bugs the driver. "Say man, can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why do we gotta keep going in circles? Can I put my feet out the window? Man, you really like Tide..." http://public.fotki.com/BigPoppa/darins_stuff-1/

One thing I thought about for an R/C FWD dragster, and then later saw on TV, was hydrolically loaded wheelie bars (My idea was to use a servo), pressing them firmly against the ground to prevent the rear suspension or tires from compressing at all and keeping all the weight up front.

On a side note, you'll need to find a place to host your photos on the Internet. Check this out:
