Saw this and thought of your car, had no idea you were actually getting it ready for a track day. This is not everyones cup of tea, but it is not a street car, unlike yours. I have seen a ton of s2k's lately, must be the next Honda thing. Im in.

Lol, What is Downforce said the S2k?



How do you like those Rs3s?

Car looks good! Any videos?

Nice! What mount are you using? Maybe you can try attaching the camera to the mini window behind the seats. Wonder if it will help?


Haha... I wish the tires weren't out of stock >.< So antsy to get them also!!

Although Saturday, I may be able to do my own video similar to your first video :p

Is this still your daily? It's funny I was just watching Moog and his S2k build and he said the same thing about the suspension. You can get a pair of swift springs for about 170 IIRC. Lmk if you can't find them for that price!

car will be getting a set of swift spec r springs. havent really priced them out.

as for the mount its just harrys lap timer on my phone. my old droid razr had the verizon mount and it was SOLID. i have the note 3 now and verizon doesnt make one so i had to go with some chinese crap, as you can see....it doesnt work so well. plan is to take the new phone clip part and plastic weld it to my old mount. should work and be more solid.

i mounted my go pro back there. i was about to leave and i was like....well lets toss a couple zip ties just in case....yeah good thing i did! i got done with the session and its sitting in my soft top. zip ties saved it from being lost, suction cup let go.

and my daily has been a 2006 ridgeline for a couple years, before that was a gsr 4 door and before that was my 03 pilot, the pilot i still have but its my wifes now. gsr was sold and money used as a down payment on the ridgeline

Fixed.....or


Um i dont fucking think so..... aside from the fact they forgot to blend the blend panels the hood looked liek it was painted outside during a dust storm with a knat infestation....so another coupke weeks go by and i get that lovely call.

I also took this oportunity to order up a lip and have it painted from the same can as the restof the fro t end for a perfect match








All better......uh.....wrong. so the ssue witht he steering and vibration i kept telling them about continually overlooked...i refused to take the car as repaired. 3.5weeks later the steering rack they found to be damaged finally arived....2.5weeks late. They also found an engine mount that had torn

Long story short i finally have my baby back after 2 very long months. Time to get to work for the upcoming season!

Signed up for:

Gridlife hpde
gridlife time attack
top hat racing gingerman event
itrexpo

Awaiting tickets for wmhm to go on sale. Also plan to possibly do the season opener. For sure the season year end track party. mix in a few furrin autox events and maybe a midnight madness or two and i have a busy summer planned

Same here....it was easy with the civic. I was usually rebuilding something at this point. The engine half torn apart....the S is just sitting there in the garage in attack mode saying "drive me, drive me"

Think i might attempt to install the wing today.

I miss driving my S, it's too cold and icy and salty to bring mine out :(
Better then you being to cold and salty to bring it out I suppose.

OP - Sucks they dicked around, seems everyone cuts corners now, glad you held strong and made them make it right. Glad to hear you are back in possession and set up for races. I follow the ITR expo look forward to seeing your car out there, especially with its new carbon bits.

Yup drove through a few miles of that yesterday. I have some good all season tires which makes a big difference.
