I was hurrying back and forth as a gopher for work yesterday, and on the highway went over some patches of uneven ground. At 70mph i felt like the car might just launch up off the road it is so light, and has such a small wheelbase. I can't imagine how it'd behave in such situations if I put your pogosticks on it.
Just realized I have a cx crank I can use, just need to get it off. Will eliminate a/c but it doesn't work anyway. *shrug* Save me some dough I guess on buying the other engine though. Wish I could just go ahead and rip out the a/c.
I may actually dump the car because it does NOT have a/c. I need it if i get some sort of "respectable" job in nj (as opposed to moving to ny), since i've had to drive shirtless in order not to drench my clothes. I need a/c just in case it's unbearable, since my wimpy allergies won't allow me to open the windows much. It would be a sorry day, but that may be the only way i'll really keep it in the long run. I'll prolly keep it anyway, who am i kidding. I'd like to wait, and be able to keep the car at least til honda diesels or the next gen faux insight replacement come out.
Hmm. I need to do my swap. Wish I was a better accountant, can't even find my wallet.
Ninja edit: On a related note, I'm hoping to have the car running tomorrow so I can drive to work, but we'll see how involved I get. Prolly not, since I want it done well and it doesn't need to be going until thursday. Ah, having time to work on the car is magical.
