I've been looking around and i had a body kit for my 90-93 accord but it was just lower lips and side skirts and was made out of polyurethane. Now i currently own a 98 civic ex coupe and I want to buy a body kit and most of the body kits that are nice looking are made from extreme dimensions...I don't know anything about this product called duraflex and I was wondering if it's as strong as they say...or is it as fragile as regular fiberglass? I'm planning to build that car as a daily driver/weekend warrior. I don't want to spend $$ on a body kit that will crack in a matter of months...I would rather go with a body kit but if all else fails then, i'm just gonna stick with a oem bumper with a carbon fiber lip...please help thank you:confused

if you dont want a body kit that will crack then dont buy one. body kits are stupid and for show. Unless you buy some really expensive shit your not going to get any "downforce"from it that will actually stabilize your car at speeds. This can go for wings too. just dont freaking do it. adding additional downforce to the rear of a vehicle ANY vehicle without assisting the front will throw off the balance of the car.

Think about it. oh i added 400 lbs of downforce to the rear at speeds over 80 mph! i have better control!!.. WRONG what happens to a truck when you add 1/2 ton to the bead? it sinks right? well what about the front? it lifts up slightly right? wouldn't the same thing happen to your car? whats 80mph wind do to a car thats 1 inch taller in the front? add more pressure under the front of the car? a 4000 lb car can weigh as little as 1000 lbs at highway speeds because of the air that's pushing it up off the ground Do I seriously need to continue?

it also makes you look like an ignorant kid who just rice''d up his car and wants attention from law enforcement. fast and furious cars suck ballz.

Do something like suspension first FFS.

Charizard owns greymon in all ways. War greymon isn't even fucking real. You ever consider that? He's in a fucking computer program or some shit, wheras - Charizard = real life.

Why? whats the point? clean and flawless paint with a matching engine compartment is SOO much more respectable. When you pop the hood on your car do people look at an engine? or do they look at a dirty oily mess? Spend time cleaning and getting to know your car, not ruining it with CF parts that arent worth a damn. If your going to mention weight savings dont even bother. I spent 550 on rims and 280 on a new set of tires. dropped 40 LBS of rotating weight. would you drop that much weight with a trunk and hood combined? i seriously doubt it.

If you do get a hood, at least get a nicely designed VENTED hood that will help the air pressure escape from the engine compartment. If you want a car that looks good get something to work on to make a slow show car out of. show cars aren't DD's anyways. unless you want to just throw your money away.

All I have to do is use my motherfucking blastoise to destroy any fucking ipod or macbook or ATM his dipshit ass will jump out of and problem = solved. Then I feed the fucking Ipod and macbook to Charizard and that's all there is to it. Plus, Pokemon = better, because you don't need electricity. How do you get fucking war greymon out into real life if the battery on your shit is dead in the middle of the desert? Exactly, you fucking can't. Pokeballs = magic, so no need for electricity, while you're fiddling around with your stupid dead machine trying to get your war greymon out, my Charizard is raping the shit out of everything around you.

A clean (not clean like "oh shit that's clean") engine bay isn't only an asston of work, but something not everyone will notice like a CF hood... However the first time you need to replace parts under the hood/want to do a wire tuck/want any kind of respect at a car show be it a small one or a big one this makes all the difference. This first, It'll run you about 150 bucks to do right but it's worth every penny. Yes it will cost money to do it right. You will need small wire brushes, engine cleaner, brake clean, small brass brushes, small plastic bristle brushes... the list goes on and on. Once you start there will be more and more that needs to be cleaned but it doesn't have to be all in one day.



If your going to mention weight savings dont even bother. I spent 550 on rims and 280 on a new set of tires. dropped 40 LBS of rotating weight. would you drop that much weight with a trunk and hood combined? i seriously doubt it.
Screw the weight he dropped. Seriously kid... that 40 pounds isn't worth shit. 40 pounds you will never feel after it's gone.... Oh wait, 40 pounds of weight VS. 40 pounds of ROTATING WEIGHT is a HUGE difference! Weight is just plain weight, 40 pounds is 40 pounds, but rotating mass is totally different. Can you lift 40 pounds? Yes. Can you spin a big heavy ass 80 pound wheel and tire to 1000 RPM? No. Can you spin a 40 pound wheel 1000 RPM? Hell no, but you'll be a lot closer. Rotating mass is WAY more important than regular weight. Not only did he drop 40 pounds, but his off the line pulls will be much faster and be less work on his motor and even more importantly his tranny, his MPG will lower mildly, and the new tires are safer... Win win all around ;)

Oh, and Serj22fag and gayness... STFU, here this guy is looking for help and you just want to argue over stupid ass bull shit anime... Yugi Mutou is by far the most superior of the bunch. He uses no lame ass "pokemyballs" to catch faggot ass squirtles (sounds like gay poo porn, 2 guys 1 cupish" to as you put it "raping the shit out of everything".

And digimon... 2 words sum it up


gay surprise butt sex, obviously he's into it
