Well, neither one of us has the monoply on this idea. There are already quite a few projects of this nature out there. Check one of my previous posts with links to Honda-Tech and kimini.com which contain lots of info on mid-engine RWD conversions going on.

If you were to use the complete drivetrain and rear substructure from an NSX, including the rear suspension, I doub't you'd have to do much reworking. The NSX rear suspension is already "setup" for rear wheel drive. Don't give up on your idea and thanks for your encouraging words.

Harrier Mazda RX83-C

man, this is nice, but one thing that worries me is that, is this safe? because you had to cut off a part of the body which pretty lessens the rigidity of it?

i could be wrong, if i am, then im sorry

well, i must say, you have gone a little above and beyond my idea when you cut into the unibody. my plans were originally to custom fab some control arms onto the front hubs from an integra, and since they are designed for turning you could use that ability as a handy little device to adjust toe-in/toe out. But it will be a long time before i have the funds to start a project like that, and when all goes as planned and my racing career (aiming for F1, yeah yeah, laught it up... but just wait!) hopefully i will still have the ambitions (and time) to set out on a task of this magnitude.

you say you were a part of the Harrier Mazda project? what years was that project racing in? please let me know because my racecar builder had a one-off BMW GTP racecar too and there is a good chance you have raced with him. i can post some pics of it if the admins will allow.

looks amazing and a lot of hard work but fun at the same time.

like br1t1shguy said, make sure it has an LSD, and i noticed you had mentioned phantomgrip, i would stay away from phantom grip as people seem to have a lot of trouble with the phantom grip and go with something more like a quiffe or did any of the prelude trannys come with an oem lsd in japan??

Many questions for you:

How do you plan on addressing the shifter, as I'm assuming this is a manual tranny?

What plans do you have for the wiring harness and vacuum connections?

Where are you going to locate the gas tank?

Are you thinking of doing a roll cage install?

Any plans for all the dead space up front?

What was the main reason going with a front end in the back? Mounting the motor and it just bolts on?

Check out this link:Harrier Mazda RX83-C
It has many details of the car and the racing we did, which occured in the late 90's into 2000 at Road Atlanta, Roebling Road, Watkins Glen, and Daytona. I'm sorry I don't recognize the car in your picture.

Thanks,
Dave
