Hillary Frank is selling her nationally competitive Honda CRX Si. Here’s what she sent us:

Current Location: Racine, WI

In 2015 the car made 400 runs and only had one failure on course. The battery cracked.

Won 28 national trophies with numerous drivers, 7 tour wins, 4 ProSolo wins and the 2015 National Champion since I bought it in 2011.
If you take care of the car, it will take care of you. It’s done me really well over the years.

The head has gone through and has one service left on it. This head was brand-new–never been on a car before in 2012.
The bottom end was rebuilt to the first factory over bore. The top of the block untouched (aka still has its numbers).
Bisimoto header wrapped with DEI wrap.
Unorthodox crank pulley.
Unorthodox alternator pulley.
Injen intake wrapped with DEI high-temp, heat-reflective tape.
K&N filter.
Custom exhaust.
Dyno tuned with custom tune in 2015.
Ballistics battery only used for national events. Otherwise we use a different battery that holds a charge better.
Motor mount bushings (all 4).
Fresh Bone transmission (has 2 events on it).
Fresh OEM Exedy clutch kit (has 2 events on it).
Short-throw shifter.

Koni 3011 shocks.

There's a lot to like there, except for the fact you'd have to trailer it everywhere. But damn I bet that thing is a hoot to drive.

Darrin's turns me on just as much... maybe more. If I'm going to have to tow it, it may as well have slicks, right?

Ha, was just looking at that ad a few minutes ago. Yeah, no wrong answers there.

If it was a BenseBuilt trans I would buy it.

STS = stock rebuilt transmission. Nothing fancy you can do to it. So it would be the same if Andrew built it instead of me.
