Hello -

[EDIT: This is not the tire that was used. See post #14 for correct tire]

Here's what I think the Hakka(peliitta) 5 looks like :

Nokian Hakkapeliitta 5

If he publishes his mods, then maybe we'll buy some if his tires. I'll bet he could design a mean belly pan for a CRX or an HX (or an IRX or a CRXi, heh heh heh).

That's the one! And just for statistics sake...he was running the 155/65/14. Maybe Neil Blanchard in Maynard, MA can catch up with him and talk him into joining the site...would be a great resource to have here.

Maybe the angled tread design is based on Apu's sideburns.
