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 small battery - https://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:https://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...

I talked to bense and if you feel like not doing the working he'd be game to do whatev with your tranny. He can custom build them or blah blah rebuild or whatev, that's all he does, :p

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? :o

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