that one isnt much for round the pits or neighborhood. Strictly race, ironically I have a pitbike that I take to the pitbike races lol. Its an SDG frame with zokes out front, Ishock on the rear and a 124se Kitaco engine, put down 20.2 hp at the rear wheel to haul my 250 lb ass around the track.

Basically, all it is, is there is a class for the type of car. Then there's a few classes for each class of car, such as single pump, double pump or just straight radical. Radical is the modified of R/C, anything goes, then single pump is just using one pump for the front, and then double is using 2 pumps to the front. The object is to see whos car gets the highest without breaking. Some people hit back bumper and come back down. Then there are what I like to call circus cars that lock up sooo high in the back that when it actually does hit back bumper it stays there standing up, then you have to lower the rear end to make it come back down. That isn't the way you do it in my opinion, those cars are stuffed with weight in the trunk and it is just a discrace to lowriding. They take cars out there without a motor no paint jobs or nothing, just to hop it. I just like to see the look on peoples' faces when they see a big ass clean ass car like mine getting as high as it does.

I think we already had a thread like this? But I'll be the outcast here post up my tuner and the super long list of modifications:

2000 Acura Integra LS

T3/T4 Hybrid Turbocharger
FMIC
HKS Intercooler Piping
HKS SSQV BOV
TurboSmart UltraGate 35
TurboSmart Manual Boost Controller
RC 440cc Injectors
Walbro 255lph fuel pump
Moates Honda ECU Chip Kit
Moates Ostrich 2.0 Emulator
Xenocron Datalogger
Crome ECU tuning software
NGK Wideband O2
Mishimoto Aluminum 1/2 Radiator
Mishimoto 14" Slimline fan
P72 ECU from phearable.net
Skunk2 Conversion Harness
BloxRacing Intake Manifold
BloxRacing T3 Manifold
EZR Downpipe 2.5" with some fab
Braided Oil feed Line
Custom Oil Drain
MeganRacing Drift-Spec 2.5" Catback Exhaust
Fidanza Short Throw Shifter
GlowShift Oil Pressure Gauge
GlowShift Boost Gauge
ADR 17"s
Toyo Proxes4 tires
Monroe Fully Adjustable Coil-Overs
Type-R Wing
Tsunami Front Lip
Sparco Hoodpins
Halo Projector Light Conversion
Black Floormats with sweet Type R emblems
Mugen Billet Oil Cap

Did all the turbo stuff myself and will be tuning it very shortly once it's put back together....Looking to make 275hp once tuned, might make more once it's on the dyno.




During the on-going build, it's taken almost 2 years to round everything up and get it all installed. Drove around for 6 months with the Intercooler mounted and no turbo lol.

Thank you, if I were to put it back to stock I would have to do way too much to the suspension. It has the 400 in it, Cartier Edition. I also took the vinyl top off and cut the front bumper. That is the stock color, and since I removed the vinyl it's been re painted.
This is what it looked like when I bought it as a sophomore in high school.

Here's the cut bumper. I made it out of 2 bumpers, I chopped the rounded ends off the scrap bumper and welded each end to the cut part on the inside near the grill. It gave it the look like it came from the factory like that.
