It's been a year since the last update on project CRX, what has it been up to?

How do you like the Progress coilovers, and which spring rate kit did you pick?

And what do you think about the Quaife quick ratio steering rack for the EFs?

Do they actually advertise that part for Drifting on a FWD car?

yeah, CRXs have basically a square footprint - I cant imagine they steer very slow. A quick rack would make it too snappy I would imagine....

Honestly, I'm super-happy with the stock HF rack. The car still rides fine--honestly, really nice. It's a bit buzzy on the streets, though. That's a function of the short gearing. The car recently received a roll bar, and there's an update in the next issue.

David was actually thinking of replacing it with something else...

While I do not see the need for a quick rack on my CRX I race with a fellow who swears by his.

Then again he's running 340hp and 10" slicks on his CRX, so I would be searching for quick ways of taming that beast too.

Good to see the update. I was wondering if you could measure the distance between the closest points of the roll bar in the hatch area? I have to carry around stuff for work that is 28" x 28" x 12", and as much as I would like some additional protection, the work cargo could be the deal-breaker on a roll bar.

Looks like the listing is for the Quick-Ratio rack that they sell for multiple cars, I don't think the listing is model-dependant. Quaife is smarter than that.
