the starter only needs

the starter only needs something like 220 cranking amps. so i went to walmart and picked up the lawn mower with 230 ccas. i then went to the home appliance section and threw it on a scale to see if it was worth it. 13 lbs. yah its worth it. it took off more weight than the hood

so ive been running a $20 lawn mower battery for a year now and it weighs as much as a 'race battery' but is 1/4 the cost.

the difference between the 1.5 and the 1.6 is really marginal, but you are right about losing your sub 2000rpm power. i never ever, 3V4R |V3V4R drive at that low of an rpm, ever.

each battery has the cranking amps, I think even lawn mower battereis, so you just need to find one that has posts that you can use, or get bold on posts.

I would still be temped to get a gell cell, is there reason not to go with a gell cell?

Here's a thread detailing a

Here's a thread detailing a small battery - http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=695215

The one there is a Hawker EP-13. It weighs 10.8 lbs vs. the stock 30 lb battery. Cost is about $40 for that one - if you can still find it. I did a breif search and can't find that one anymore. But I did find a similar battery here:http://www.stealth316.com/2-dynabatt.htm

But it's like $80.


Toecutter:

The gearing mods may not be that hard to do - I still have the OE VX transmission but it's in need of some r&r (input shaft bearing needs replacement). I saw the Keeps on Rollin' CX that had many aero modifications - the mpg blows the mind. I do plan on doing a belly pan at some point and I'm gathering materials now.

Has anyone done experiments on the rear wheel skirts? I know they are benificial, but I wonder how much and if they depend on other areo mods to be effective.

This is a great site!

There's a thread on here (with pictures) somewhere about my complete R&R on a CRX HF transmission.

Sweet thanks - I'll do a search.

That's an L3 trans though - how much different is the S20? I mean, aside from the hydraulic/cable and mounting issues? I've seen Mista Bone do a hybrid trans using mix-n-match components...

Bense! I talked him into coming over to SOHCHonda.com and sharing his research on the HX/GX engines/valvetrains. Great guy - I'll have to keep him in mind if I decide to go custom. I'm sure between Mr. Bense and Mr. Bone, I could get 'er togther.

On the bellypan note:

I've heard that there are some of the performance types that have tried this and ran into heat problems associated with the exhaust. Something about boiling gas in the tank?

I know some of you guys have done the bellypan - have you noticed any problems like the above?
