I am going this weekend to pick up a 84-87 CRX (Non SI). It has everything except the motor, tranny and driveshafts (from what the owner says)! I am not sure what kind of shape it is in, I guess it needs some BONDO here and there. Why am I saying all of this? Well because I am getting it for FREE! Sorry, I am not going to disclose the owners name, until I have permission. But that's besides the point.
Anyway, to get back on track...Can any help me with Tech Stuff for this car. I see that OPM has some nice eye candy, but what about set-up and so on... I would appreciate any info that anyone can give me.

Good for you Dan! What does your wife think of the new "monster" in the garage? Let me know if you need a hand with anything.

I've got the interior out of the Civic and we are eBaying to try and raise funds for the suspension.

Keep me (us) posted!

I raced an 85 CRXsi with Mike Fine of OPM Motorsports this year and we did very well with the car. Won Roebling ECR in April and should have won a couple of more. Mike knows these cars very well having raced one for about 5 or so years. If you are interested in contacting Mike at OPM for info, you can reach him at 770.886.8199 or [email protected]

Don't forget about me! I've got a pair of Suburbans and at least one of them is always available! Let me know if you need any help transporting it in the future. (I still have the open trailer also...)

Get Pics posted soon.

See ya!

Thanks Matt... The only problem is you are in Columbus and I am in the Akron Area! But I am sure the call will come.

Before you do any work to it check out the frame in the area where the panhard rod mounts. Depending on how much salt the car has seen you may have some rust there. Also, please send me your email and I can shoot you some ITC header pictures.

Once again, plans to pick the car up last night, fell apart. But, I did go look at it. Diffently needs some BONDO, around the quarter panels and back fendors, did not look under the car to check frame in the area where the panhard rod mounts are! The cool thing is that it is an Si! So, that moves me from wanting to go ITC to ITA! Because I thought it was a DX! Going to try again tonight to get it! wish me luck...
