    These are from a little informal car show (most Saturdays) in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. Yes there is a lot of money here so no one should be surprised to see TWO 300sSLís plus lots of other amazing cars, including a Hispana Suiza (Mex. Food?). It is also a lot of fun driving to the event on the curvy roads in that region. Of course my favorite was the little BMW Lego carÖ

    The last piece of this front underbody job - the side access plates for the front aero shroud. This gives me easier access to confirm the jam nuts on the lower front A-arm.

    My car is powered by an Acura RSX S-type engine/trans which is six speed plus reverse. Totally stock, just dropped in to the RCR chassis...

    Following, I'm also reading up on how you managed to get this to work. I'm working on trying to adapt the transmission from a car to fit in a gocart. I'm interested on on how people used the started motor from a car as the reverse gear.

    If you are using a car transmission there should be a reverse gear in the transmission. If you are using a motorcycle transmission then it is common to have to provide a reverse with a separate motor as very few bike transmissions have reverse.

    I used an Acura drive package (6 speeds plus reverse). This is basically a Honda K20 engine (2.0) and is good but you have to get drive shafts, etc. to make it work. I would look at the Gremlin (https://dfkitcar.com) which takes the engine subframe from a Chevy Cobalt, complete with the suspension. That would be an easier route although not quite up to the Honda's performance. You can always turbocharge if you want more power.
