Hit up the Pro Solo event this past weekend. I didn't get a chance to run as the registration was closed. I tried taking some pictures, but I have figured it helps to make sure the battery is fully charged.

My attempt at glory. I really dig the contrast with the rusted hanger bay doors. I wish the lighting was better, and I was not dealing with a exhausted camera battery.

Top down fool!

But seriously, the pics of all the vehicles alone would make attending the event worth it. Too bad about the camera issue.

On a side note: I saw Steve's car featured in Honda Tuning. Had a nice little article about him, Angie, and the old Teg. Tell him congrats from me if you ever could.

I'm really not a fan of the top down. A mugen hardtop is in the future...

I will pass that on to Steve.

My favorite Lotus is the dark green. Some day maybe.

Hey, that's the hangar they're trying to save from demolition because it's an historical landmark. I had no idea the SCCA ran right next to it. Never had a chance to get down to the Wendover events, just the Salt Lake events Looks like some pretty damn cool cars show up the Wendover ones.

Yeah, I just read that on the news last night. I think it is a interesting old place, with some great history whether good or bad.

I have only hit up the Wendover events a few times. With this being a national event, there were cars from all over.

Ah Wendover...one of the first tracks I ever went too. (It wasn't pretty attempting to make it down the track either)

The drive there alone was fun enough for me. Watching Steve's teg and your Civic do some highway runs while I ran against your buddies Hyundai there were pretty fun.

As for the Mugen Hardtop... SEXY! Back when I was looking at S2k's, that's the first addition I was looking to make if I purchased one. Kinda give the back end that M-Coupe clook IMO. But nice overall.

Are you thinking of the Spoon hardtop? I think they look more like the m coupe.

Yeah...it was the Spoon Hardtop I had in mind. I'd take the Spoon hardtop anyday, even a cheap semi-knockoff version of it wouldn't hurt either.

Although, seeing that Mugen type isn't half bad. But it wouldn't sway my decision if I had a choice (or the budget) for the Spoon top.

Any other modifications in mind for the S2k? I know you get the bug each time you have a new vehicle. You want to go faster. Simple bolt-ons don't suit you.

No major plans really. I already have one of the best street/track suspensions matched with the next best wheels other than Volk TE37's. If I can find the same size and offset in the TE's I will get those. The exhaust I am looking for has been narrowed down to two, and the intake will be a Password JDM carbon chamber intake. Might toy with a header if I have money to waste. I will be replacing the final drive with a 4.52, dropping the flywheel out and putting the AP1 in it's place. That should be it, aside from a few minor exterior pieces. I am not really interested in boosting it.

Volk TE37's? Nice choice, I've actually been more of a fan of their LE-37's. Especially in a gold finish. Saw an Evo with them in a magazine a while back. Looked incredibly amazing. Ever since, I've had a wheel crush and wanted a set. Hell, even just to own in my room.

As for the simple bolt-ons, they'll do you some justice. From what I've seen, they'll net you about 16-20 whp. Sounds like you've developed it more for time attack and "canyon driving". Either way, S2k's are pretty hot. If I had my choice of one, I would look into an all white/red leather interior model.

Pity they are discontinueing them. I think 09 is the last year they will be offered. I think the S2000 was offered longer than it was really intended to be by Honda. But still, I've had the pleasure of test driving one. Although, I never had my chance to open it up on the roads, I did get to rev it. It was music to my ears.

Any chance you may sway your opinion on the Mugen top and go out and buy yourself a Spoon version top? :biggrin:

The TE's have been my favorite wheel since I first saw them. LE's are okay I guess. :uhoh:

Yeah, I want to use the car for what it was intended, and that's the corners. I saved for a few years after ditching the Si. I wanted just a fun weekend car. I really wish they would have dropped the model earlier than they did, just to keep the numbers down. I have had plenty of changes to push it hard, and it loves to respond back.

That would be a negative on the Spoon top. I honestly do not think it looks that good on a otherwise stock S2000. Maybe with a wide body kit, or some flares. But that is way beyond what I want.

The 16-20hp gain is actually quite high. Typical with the F22 would be about half that. It is hard to squeeze extra hp out unless you really start to get aggressive.
