Re: Official PDX Lounge

The front is mac strut, not horrible but not as good as the old honda goodness.

When I was matrix shopping I was cross-shopping ep3 but I ended up deciding I needed 4 doors.

Apparently the guys that were road racing them when they were new were putting 1500#+ (I've read as high as 2500#) springs in back to just not let the suspension move at all.

That said, I still always shop Ep3s lol
Yea I've always been a fan of hatchbacks and the car I linked already has a 6psd LSD Trans installed so that's great. I've also been aware of the less than desirable suspension but let's face it, I don't have enough driving experience/ skill for that to really matter .

That looks like a really fun car. However, one of the last places I'd drive a twitchy car like that is on 205.
Pulled all the baffles. Powder coat is just so much more durable.

She's not an aggressive driver. I'm not worried. She isn't one to go fast enough to step the rear end out.
