    Is it normal (healthy) for my honda engine to make an audible ticking(not knocking) noise that rises with revs? It's not that audible from inside the car, but you can definently hear it from outside. I tried taking a video/audio recording of it with my phone, but the sounds are completely inaccurate and exaggerated in the video.

    I, personally, have not over revved it. It's made the sound since i got it. It kinda sounds like diesel, I'm just assuming it's the valves. Should i be concerned?
    Very normal, they are bad about going out of adjustment on the valvetrain. It's nothing to worry about too much, just a lot of racket. A valve adjustment will fix it and is very easy to do. I've done a valve adjustment on every Civic/CRX I've owned because the ticking was driving me nuts. When I first got my Civic hatch running the ticking was so loud you'd think it was a rod knock starting to happen, one lifter was WAY out of adjustment. A constant THUNK THUNK THUNK could be heard from the head.

    I've got the last of the parts i need to fix my Team Associated RC10GT coming in the mail. It lost signal to my remote and hit a curb at full speed. It broke the fuel tank, and front wheel. The engine was also leaking badly at the time of the crash, so i ordered new gaskets for it all around. The diff was also bone dry, so i got some lube coming for that.






    I've got new tires coming in the mail, among other things. In that second picture it only actually has one wheel on to show what it will look like. The shocks still need new seals and there is a bunch of small things that need replaced, but it will be driveable.

    Alright that's good to know. Will it cause damage or wear if i don't have it done any time soon? I don't have a job or money at the moment, but i am hoping to change that soon.

    Ugh i need shock seals too, these bastards leak more than a 13 yr old girl at a beiber concert.

    Also, now that my Jato is running, i'll fix up my even older NTC3 which hasn't seen pavement since the summer, then after that, my old-ass tamiya hornet.

    Guy had the nerve to text me and tell me to "be honest, it's got 235k and you turbocharged it. The rusted header tells the story"

    Now, I have pics of me putting this car together, and I'm

    pretty sure


    I put


    this motor


    together


    and shit


    and yeah, then I turbocharged it, with all new parts


    even fabbed some stuff up for it and shit


    And it was a lot of fucking work getting all of this done RIGHT



    And from that to what it is now I'd say I've put a lot of fucking work into it. New head gasket, timing belt, head was redone, all new o-rings for the injectors, new oil pan gasket, new dizzy o-ring, new plug wires and valve cover gasket (Japfeiffer bought those), all of the turbo kit was BRAND SPANKING NEW, the piping and intercooler had been used but not even under boost (someone used it for an interfooler).

    I meand, fuck, I dunno. I'm probably getting way too mad about this.

    But when you put a lot of time into a car and then someone asks to buy it knowing what the fucking ad says and then specifically calls me out, saying I pulled a fucking shortcut and just slapped a turbo on a worn ass Honda, I get pretty fucking mad.

    This car has been my blood sweat and tears for several months now and if you don't fucking appreciate that you can piss off and buy another god damn car. Go find someone to fuck you because that's obviously what you are looking for.

    People are assholes man, sometimes you just gotta take it with a grain you know? People talk shit about my rex all the time when they don't even fucking know what kind of car it is, just because the paint looks like shit. Doesn't help when they don't fucking know anything either, like that guy sounds like

    I love the CRX, i hate to see it go. Hopefully you can find a way to make ends meet, and keep it, before someone buys it from you.

    I've been looking around used car dealerships and stuff with my brother the last few days, and yesterday i saw this



    This totally bad ass MURDERED OUT 350z. I can't believe someone ruined this car so badly.

    You want a closer look at that fresh paint? Well here is a close up i took of the headlights, and it was this fantastic all the way around.

    The Cobra comes out of the garage tomorrow, and the Cobra also goes in the garage tomorrow. I hope to have my exhaust, radiator/supports, and most of the wiring out of the way by the weekend after this. I want to have the engine out soon.

    The order I've made is shipped to a non-existing address because the guy running the compagny is too stupid to read the address I type in CORRECTLY.
    Now I gotta email him and ask him to correct it or do something about it OR fill a paypal complaint because the order will never make it to my home.

    How can you be THAT moron, I TYPED IT IN THE SHIPPING SECTION. Geez

    at least the door number and postal code are correct.
    street,town are both wrong and non existant.
    I hope the postal service in canada will be able to understand where I live with the postal code and door number, disregard of the street/city.

    So yeah most of the section will probably get mad but today after work me and my boss had a go, 98 accord aganist i believe a 2008 ford escape. About 19-20 mile drive (race). What we didn't know what it'd turn into.

    Basically a sum up it starts on the throughway then onto a bridge then back onto the throughway onto a parkway called the saw mill. The saw mill is a two lane parkway with a fuckton of curves and twists and smallness and ofcourse blind spots.

    Pink is the course taken before parting
    Red is honda accord
    Orange is ford escape

    Both averaging our speeds most of the time lowest being 80 and highest being 120 when he passed on the bridge going 100



    Yeah we were a danger to the fucking 3 cars out at night 10pm, I believe the only reason i had most of the sawmil cause of how light and agile it was compared to the escape and the fact i had more balls to take the curves and twists and 80-90mph
