I found this forum by searching for DIY suspension info for my Evo8.

I used to rallyx and daily drive a Honda Del Sol, but sold that a few
years ago and picked up an Evo8 MR for daily/autox duties.

The Evo is great, I daily drive it and take it on all kinds of adventures.
I built a teardrop camper over the summer that my wife and I have
taken out on 4 trips and the Evo pulls it very nicely. I haven't done
any rallyx with my Evo, but I have done a bunch of ice driving events.

I'm a DIY kind of guy, and love to play in the dirt, and I love to tinker.

Here are a bunch of pics of my old Del Sol, and my Evo:

Welcome to the site! I don't think I have ever seen a del sol look that good in the dirt! And of course that is a beautiful Evo!

I love that camper setup! You said you built it? I'd love to hear more about that and see more pics of it. How did you mount the hitch on the Evo?

I really enjoyed that Del Sol, it saw a lot of different engine setups. It was NA, turbo, supercharged with both the stock type of engine, an engine from an integra, a prelude, and also a JDM engine over the 6 years that I had it. I really beat on it hard but I was always able to limp it back home. Never had a catastrophic failure that left me stranded lol. It was also slammed for autox for a while, then lifted with accord suspension.

The hitch on the evo was purchased from a user on evolutionm that used to sell them, I don't know if he still does but his username is rallytrack. The hitch is mostly just for bike racks, as the MR has the aluminum roof and no rack options. I added some steel to the hitch to make it a little more rugged, and added another bracket that bolts to the car to make it more sturdy.

The camper I built, here is a huge imgur album of the progress pics.. it's a ton of pics and I'm sorry but there are no captions lol.. but if you have any questions I can answer them here :) http://imgur.com/a/WzKBL

That camper is one of the coolest things ever! I would love to build something like that some day.

Also that Del Sol looks like a ton of fun! :D And your evo is gorgeous!
