Otto Gravens Drifted back onto AutoModified

While keeping close tabs on one of South Africa’s pioneering drifters, we thought it would be great to catch up with Otto Graven again and see what Otto and his team at Monster Mob have been up to.

AM: In our last interview with you the question came about why you had changed from your R33 Skyline to a Nissan 350Z. We notice you have not just mastered the V6, but you decided to get rid of the Nissans V6 motor and replace it with a beefy V8 Corvette C5R motor. …

Honda CRX Build thread

Of late I have taken a liking to Honda’s, more specifically the CRX and Civic VTec. I’ve been following a CRX on the HondaTech forum recently, he’s busy developing a RWD Honda CRX. Grant has taken his 2nd Gen CRX and opted to play with the Honda S2000 VTec motor, but it doesn’t stop there. Grant is planning on hanging a very juicy Turbo off the side of the F20C engine.
