WHAT IS THIS CAR?
Using an Acura Integra LS Model and all Honda parts, Braille transformed the Front-Wheel Drive chassis to be either a Front-Wheel Drive (just like stock), Rear Wheel Drive or All-Wheel Drive vehicle.
While the original intention for Braille was to produce a kit for other Integra owners to enjoy, the cost of the conversion and the time spent to complete the conversion would place the cost way outside the price range of the majority of their customers. This means that if you want your own Rear Wheel Drive / All Wheel Drive Integra, you have one chance – this car!
There will no doubt be many questions about this vehicle. Please check the following answers to frequently asked questions and please review the entire web links and pictures before writing, you should find the answers within our information provided.
Q: Is the car street legal?
A: The car has a clear title in the State of Florida and was never under a “rebuilt” title. Due to the vehicles engine and exhaust modification you will need to check your local laws to see what is allowed.
Q: How long did the car take to complete?
A: The vehicle took a little over 2 years to complete. About 800 hours.
Q: Is the car easy to drive?
A: Yes. In front wheel drive configuration it drives exactly like your Integra. In Rear Wheel Drive Configuration with the welded diff it feels just a little different in casual driving but has a whole new level of abilities when driven aggressively. Using the Realtime AWD Differential the car drives just like a front wheel drive until the front wheels loose grip then power is sent to the rear wheels.
Q: How would I change the car from FWD to AWD or RWD?
A: We are including with the car all the items need to use whatever drive type you wish. Since the drive system on this car does not use an electronic switching device but relies on mechanical systems to change where the power is sent, some wrenching is involved to switch “modes”. To change the car into any of the available settings requires up to 2 hours with 2 people. We have been able to change the configuration from Rear Drive to Front Wheel Drive in as little as 15 minutes. Easy to change for a weekend event or climate change, but not something you can simply do at the stoplight.
Q: Are there any special parts on this car that cannot be replaced?
A: The majority of the fabrication is “one-off”, but all the parts are based on over-the-counter items from either aftermarket manufacturers or Honda and Acura dealerships. The drive system uses all Honda/Acura parts that are directly bolted to the car (with our modified mounts and chassis) or modified then installed. The design of this car took into account the need to get parts while racing, meaning if it can be broken, it can be replaced (unless you totally wreck the car).
Q: Has the car been raced?
A: The car has seen some light competition at the Falken Drift Showoff series and local Florida Drift events. The car has finished on the Podium at many events. We also used the car for one track day to shake down the braking and suspension. The car has not been involved in any racing accidents or damage.
Q: Could I use this car to race?
A: Definitely! The car was designed originally for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb or Drifting. While it will require a bit more maintenance than other cars, the unique nature and pure coolness of the vehicle will get much attention. You could also use the car for track days.
Q: Could the car be a show car?
A: Yes you could transform this car into a show winner. After all, who can “one-up” a RWD conversion?
Q: Can this car be a street car?
A: Yes. While it does not have an A/C system in the car, we did install the conversion around the factory A/C originally. So, simply reinstall the Integra interior (not included) and an A/C system and you’re good to go.
