Default Is it feasable to build a RWD honda CRX? Lol!?

Yes i know if i want a RWD why not just buy a RWD!!But being a Scot stuck in Canada with only American cars and Americans - in there (cough) infinate wisdom decided to only build RWD cars that go from one stop light to the next in a flash but when it comes to gripin the twisty stuff.... well...lets just say you need yer sea legs to drive one of them BOATS round a bend!!.... wing mirrors will scrape tarmac! Lol!And i've always been a sucker for VTEC man!

I think anything is feasible, but may not be worth the cost.

I have actually seen a rear wheel drive crx dragster. It was a mean mother. Dont think it would be worth the time and money spent on it though.

It would cost a fortune in new hardware from the engine on back, including custom transmission and rear end/axle. It would require major body work, and complete new front end and suspension. All that would be left is the body, and a modified interior, so, look at the cost of the car plus at least $30,000 in custom work, and you would have a car that would not be a Honda any longer, and that no service shop would know how to fix.

I've seen pics in Import Tuner Magazine of a guy that, somehow, stuck the engine from an NSX in a CRX. There weren't any details, but he did it for sure. And, yes it can be done, or, you could go AWD and get the tranny and components from an older AWD Civic and put 'em in there. I've wanted to do that or see it done for a while now, plus the handling would be sick with an AWD CRX!!!
