Stick that in a crx, it would be better
Fuck the CRX I bet that thing is just as light but with RWD it handles much better. Sure you can get the Rex to be a great handler but there is nothing like a RWD car with power. It sounds and looks awesome! Who needs VTEC when you have something that sounds like that with a sequential gearbox to boot! Nice little ride!

damn that bitch was sick. at first i was like, why would you stick a bike engine in a car, losing all the pwr to weight ratio advantage a bike has, cuz the 900 engine makes about 150 or so hp, so the escort would have about as much hp as a stock civic or teg, but then i realized it was turboed so its ok. sick car tho

No reverse........Damn thats a nice car I would love to have/drive it. Looks really fun and to be able to turn 11000-14000 RPM. Correct me if I am wrong but the motorcycle tranny can be shifted without letting off the gas right?

Yes but we are talking motorcycle transmissions they have different internals than a car transmission like no syncros. So let me rephrase my question.....Can you shift without letting off the gas WITHOUT harming the transmission.

All I have to say is thats pretty cool. Seems he did a good job, and it sounds great. Personally I dont think anyone should "hate" on it because that guy did a respectable job on that car. So what if its an escort, or a CRX or a shoping cart, still takes work and is cool because its unique not many people do that. Domestic meets Import is what that is.

Just my .02

Under WOT, no you physically wont be able to get it out of gear because of too much load on the trans. What you do is "preload" the shifter so when you blip the throttle it pops into the next gear smooth as can be. When done properly, your not really going to harm anything. On a sidenote, I wonder if they used an old 893cc motor or the newer 918cc??
