I didn't really trade the DM7 for it, but as a resuly of buying it I sold the DM7. Its a 1998 Acura Integra Type R. Only 1023 were made that year, and that was the last year for Championship White. I bought it for pretty cheap considering ITR prices, but its got some problems. Most of them will be fixed within the next few weeks, and then the only thing left will be body work. This has been my dream car for while, and now I've gotten the chance to rebuild one that wasn't taken such great care of. Motor runs very strong though, and the frame is straight.

I need a gun now though, so I'll be looking at picking up something very cheap. I sold the DM7 to pay for Lo-Jack for the ITR, which will run me ~$600.

NOOO keep it stock (body wise) and make it all GO GO GO! i hate showy cars. sleeper cars are more fun. and a fast integra is more fun (even though i hate Frontwheel drive cars)

Because of this being a family forum, I can't express how I feel about show cars. With that being said, all I'm gonna do is work on the suspension for auto-x/road course. There's nothing sleeper about a ITR considering it was the fastest production 4-cyl in its time. They run super slow 1320s(mid-high 14s), but they were made for turning. All it needs is a few more bars, and some better shocks and it'll be good.

well it's a sleeper considering all white car, with no crazy body kit and stupid show crap on it that makes a car "fast" i don't know too much about honda's, except i hate vtechs. they're all rev and no umf. even my friend hates honda engines, and he builds/races them haha.

fine fine, in the USA the Integra is badged under Acura, when in reality it's a Honda. Acura is honda's american badge. Much like how Infinity is Nissan's american badge, and Lexus is Toyota's american badge. It's still a honda

I miss my 'teg. They need a little more than what you listed to really be able to turn, but once you do it, wow! The two main routes people go with the ITRs is either a high-compression all-motor setup, or turbo. I wouldn't nitrous that car, the compression is already too high, besides, nitrous (by itself) is for people who can't go fast on their own. :D

My car doesn't actually need a thing. Its handles pretty damn good from the factory, but there's always room for improvement.

David, they have auto-x's at Little Creek on base and out at Pungo every other Sunday. I'll be headed to VIR for road course stuff, but thats way out in the future.

Yep, Dan said it. It was stolen 04/10/06. :( I miss that car and actually wish I had that one instead of this one. If I still had it, it'd be paid off right now, and fully built/boosted. I love this car a lot though, I took it out for a drive and was hanging with a 911 through turns. :)

Negate the both... haha.

They can be fine tuned for straightaways... but they succeed in acceleration out of sharp turns. Great drift car.

05-13-2007, 07:08 PM
... then why do they do it with WRX's? You can drift a FWD. It takes talent but you can. They do it with Skylines too.

It's about the weight distributation and timing...

WRX's are AWD. Skylines come in RWD and AWD. In a FWD car, the front wheels pull the car. If you get the ass end out, all you are doing is power sliding. In a RWD car, you can push the ass end out, and still direct it with the front wheels. Its completely different things. Theres a pro drifter who "drifts" a Civic in Japan, but its not drifting, its powersliding.

Ace24
05-13-2007, 07:18 PM
Oh wow... I'm slow tonight. Sorry hahaha. I was forgetting that FWD stood for front wheel drive not four wheel drive. I've been out of car disgussions (and I cant spell..) for a long time now that I got out of the automotive field in HS. (going back in college) :( I've developed an ignorance when it comes to cars now.

My bad hahaha.

I know that... they are also rotary engines... er the RX7 is. (I almost... um... can't say it here... when I hear the sound of a nicely kept and tuned RX7's rotary engine...)

There is another one... aside from the RX8 thats rear wheel... it's older too I think. Or maybe it's Nissan... ...Honda? No... not the Prelude... (Although I'm pretty sure Honda bought out Acura... didn't they?)

Acura is Honda's luxury division. Always has been. Preludes are FWD also. The only RWD Honda/Acura is the S2000. They aren't popular drift platforms, but there are a few drifting professionally.

Nenkitsune
05-13-2007, 07:32 PM
haha, WRX's and Skylines are BOTH AWD, and skylines are a ***** to drift because of the ALTESSA system. it's a 100% RWD untill the back wheels spin, then it starts shifting power to the front wheels. it's possible, but hard. and WRX's are rally cars. they're built to slide in the dirt. you can't drift a FWD simply because, to drift, you need to be understeering and oversteering, all wheels over the limit, but still under control. you can't do that to a fwd.

Ace24
05-13-2007, 07:33 PM

I used to be able to follow it COMPLETELY... but then got away from cars for over a year and forgot everything... aside from basic matinence, oil change, breaks, filters, lines, starters, windshield whiper motors... easy stuff. I forgot the names of alot of parts and such as well as cars and the manufacture's.

I can still name every car that drives past by the shape of the headlights though. :)

i'm the sort of person that ends up getting into every hobby i have an intrest in. i remember everyting even if i've been away from it for a long time. like, i haven't even touched an Alto Saxaphone since 7th grade, but i can still read sheet music for it, and i remember all the notes on them.

to timmy=yeah, since he was reffering to awd though i didn't mention the rwd skylines. the r-32 came in a Type-M that was also rwd. i've always wanted a 1990 Skyline R-32 GT-R. out of every year, the R-32 gt-r is the fastest, lightest, and smallest. since nissan used the same engine on every gt-r the only reason why the r-32 is faster is because of it's weight. i belive that in stock trim, simply by remapping the ecu you can get close to 400hp out of it. Japan has that gentlemens agreement to not produce a production car with over 276hp, so they limit it's power through the ecu.

I've done it (no not powersliding) in my uncles 1987 Mitsubishi Starion Turbo, and loved it so much that I kept practicing (expecting to receive the car from him... then he sold it to a Japanese street racer with connections over in Japan for parts for the car) and tried to get good at it... but it's an artform.

Much like a professional paintball players play style. (wow thats alot of P's) It takes alot of practice to get good at. When done correctly, it's beautiful. (IMO)

and don't use american drifting as a standard. the US drift circuit is crap compared to the drift circuts in japan. the american is all show it seems, huge angles and crazy amounts of smoke, but from the vids my japanese friend (he moved here a few years ago i think) the japanese circuits focus more on speed than it does show. so you see very very nice drifting, the way it should be, which is, drifting to go faster in a car that doesn't have enough grip for the speed. like how they do it in the wrc. those car's could never go that fast around turns if they tried grip racing

*drools a little* playing GT3 actually got me interested in it, then watching EVERY episode of initial D (1st stage through 4th stage) got me very interested. i love old cars, and i love the old AE86. it has a great engine too. they use the AE111 engine (still the same, but it's a 20 valve i think) in the toyota atlantic forumla circuit or something like that. I wish i had a good car to drift with. i found out that a vw with the right suspension components does wonderful in the dirt haha. my friends have a huge dirt lot by their house, and my bug i sold had a stock 1200 in it, but had a camber compensator (gets rid of the "tuck under" problem that would flip them) it loved drifting around. not enough power to go way sideways, but it would handle great at low angles. I play the initial d game way to much as well.....what i really want to do though, is take a 65 vw Notchback, and put in a complete subaru drivetrain in it to drift.

oh yeah, and lets see that viper that's "dominating" the us drift circuit drive like that on a 2 lane mountain road haha

Ace24
05-13-2007, 10:39 PM
I love Initial D... I have 1 - 8 of the Manga... (there is like 30 in the series...) and honestly I like the Manga better... but after watching the series up to the point where I was in the mangas I just sort of stopped reading and watching... idk. I guess buying paintball stuff got in the way of my $10 a manga thing haha.

Vipers are garbage when it comes to tight turning and handling at high speeds. It would four wheel drift right off a cliff. Much like alot of American muscle cars.

My friends are amazed that I can "drift" in a Buick. Heh. (I want to get a video, but if my dad found it, he would KILL me... and I don't want to do it to the car. Torture on the transmition)

Nenkitsune
05-13-2007, 11:10 PM
yeah, i know what ya mean. there is however, some people building a camaro for the us drift circuit. an old musclecar. i read an article about it. they completly re worked the suspension, since they said it was great goin straight, but once you tried making it go sideways, it wasn't happy. they did a ton of work on the suspension and apparently it loves turning sideways.

I know EXACTLY what you mean about the manga thing. before i got into paintball i would buy a couple each paycheck. i've got a collection of about 100 manga lol

i wasn't even CONCEIVED 20 years ago o_o..... anyways, it's actually been popular in japan since at least the 80s. my mom got into it accidently. accidently meaning litterally an accident lol. she said she was driving her friends car in the mountians, and was going to fast into a turn, and instinctevly drifted around the turn. the guy she was with asked my mom if she wanted to start racing. my mom was freaked out by the ordeal and of course declined haha. well, i know where i get a lot of my reflexes from, thanks mom XP
