Default Thinking about buying a CRX, what do you think?

So I have an LS Integra but its an auto and I really want a car I can put some parts on and do some rally cross but also have a daily driver. So my friend offered to sell me his crx for a grand, but just recently ive been thrashing my integra with my driving style, i killed a rotor and a brake pad last week making some sharp turns (just for fun and in a safe environment) so Im wondering maybe a honda wouldnt be best for me, maybe other cars are built to take more of a thrashing like say a subaru or an older bmw 325i. Am i being stupid? should i just get the crx and shut up?

go with an old legacy like a 93 from subura most wrx parts from 95 will work on it and it was one of suburus original rally cars. the crx isnt much of a rally car.

the crx was a pretty descent rally car actually im sure the rotar and pads were stock. well what would you expect. get aftermarket suspension and brake kits and everything before you drive it hard. duh...and if u get a crx with a b18c1 or b18b like your ls and make it ls vtec it will be very quick i have a video of a turbo b18 stomping on a lamborghini. you just have to be smart and not expect stock friggen parts to hold up to punishment when they were designed for daily driving. unless its an Si or Type R or GSR which were more race oriented. the only prob is its front wheel so dont expect to do fantastic on any dirt roads the ass end will slip every which way...
