    Will be following this, got 2 4th Gen Prelude's myself

    Sell the rear subframe, it's worth some money, people like to do the conversion to remove 4 wheel steering

    Awesome project. I love the idea of 1uzing it as I want to 1uz something myself but I do quite like the idea of an electric skider. And see how well it performs. It's an interesting project

    Not alot been happening with the project as I have been getting my new mobile shotblasting business set up.
    Some changes to my plans. Will be starting on a complete spaceframe that will sit inside the outer shell of the prelude using the rx8 drivetrain as before.

    Also decided to get these grids which I think will fit in better than the other wheels I have.
