Anybody interested in a used set of Tein Super Street coilovers for a RSX? Recently, I got a new coilover set with pillow-ball mounts, so I don't need these anymore. Stock 02-04 upper mounts included. Free shipping!
I park my car in a garage at my apartment with blind-spots on the left and right of the garage door. When I exit the garage I can't see what's coming until my driver's side window passes the doorway. Nowadays, people are looking at their phone more than they're looking at the road. I don't want to take the risk that the other driver has their head down when I pull out of the garage.
I value quality and reliability over all else when I buy a car. After doing tons of research last year, I heard and read that Porsche Caymans were a good buy and that Porsche was one of the most reliable manufacturers in Europe. They're great for commute and the track.
I know every car has its "Achilles Heel".
But a reliable car is one that can get you home despite its flaws. My RSX, for instance,
Listening to the latest Everyday Driver Car Debate podcast and someone asked an interesting question: "Where is the line between track car and daily car?" For my RSX, I would say there were two upgrades that dramatically changed the dynamics of the car. The first was the race header and sport exhaust. 2-liter, 4 cylinder engines don't put out much sound, but when the catalytic converter is removed, the resulting sound definitely changes the personality
Won't go into the details now, but I had a major malfunction at the track this weekend. Shout out to Joseph with Corsa Crew who fixed my car enough to get home. Look these guys up if they are at your local track event. They offer all kinds of track side services.
She probably heard it somewhere, or I missed the bus, but I thought I would share my mom's wisdom with the car community. Alabama had a bad hail storm a few weeks ago which missed me by about 40-50 miles. I wouldn't know what to do if my car was in danger of getting hail damage. My mom suggested finding an empty parking deck and parking there until the storm passes. To those without a
Just had to take a pic of the RSX after getting it detailed, paint touchup, and headlight polish before the pollen removes the luster. Got 2 new Michelin Pilot SS tires mounted to the front today. Having D2 Racing coilovers installed tomorrow. All this to prep for track day in April.
Turns out I may not be able to get the Tein coilovers I wanted because they're on backorder. My shop suggested three brands: D2 Racing, KSport, and Skunk2 racing. Anyone had any experience using coilovers from these brands? Any Honda owners use any of these?
Surfing the Internet and found this article by Jalopnik. Why haven't we all thought of doing this?
What door chime should your car play? Looked up hits in 2004 (year of my RSX)..."Yeah!" by Usher and Little John..."Let's go"...indeed, lol.
Porsche in the shop, so they gave me a 2018 Boxster 718 base with PDK. Very impressive and sophisticated. Exhaust sounds kinda cool, but is quiet, too quiet at WOT. Current base model is as fast as a 2012 Cayman S which is pretty remarkable. Effortless acceleration, no doubt due to the increase of torque the turbo provides. No drama in the corners, which is what you want and expect from a mid-engine car.
Not a lot of Porsche owners here, but I've got a question for the Porsche community. Looking to buy a new OEM dual mass flywheel from the Internet, but Suncoast doesn't sell them for some reason. I found some random dealer sites that sell it for 20% off like an Annapolis Dealer parts site:
but I'm suspect. Is this site legit? Anyone know of a reputable site to buy one new?
Now that we are in the week of sharing the love, what made you become a car enthusiast? I remember seeing a C2/C3 Corvette for the first time when I was a little kid. It looked unlike anything else on the road and one of my first fav toys was a Hot Wheels Corvette. I loved cars for their looks only until I watched Top Gear on Netflix around 2008. It looked so fun
I'm looking for a good, dependable Honda performance shop in the Atlanta area, or east GA would be good too. I need to install a new coilover kit. +++ if they have worked on many RSXs. I guess they don't need to specialize in Honda, but I'd like some peace of mind.
I was looking around on Etsy for some automotive art, but some of it looks sketchy. Does anyone know of a good site I can get some good prints? I'd like something large (like 40 x 16 in), but I'd be interested in some small prints too. It can be drawn or professionally photographed. Bonus points if its Porsche.
Dreaming about aftermarket exhaust for the Cayman. It may be a while before I do this, as I don't want to jeopardize my warranty, but that's what dreaming is for, right? There are 2-3 negative things about the car so far I've discovered, and the exhaust is definitely one of its short comings. It sounds good when the car is past 6K RPMs, but there's very little time the car can be driven at WOT on the street due
Cold Air Intakes are great, except when you've got to get to work and a sudden downpour sends millions of gallons down your streets. Unfortunately, when the water gets too high, the low CAI sucks up water, not air, the intake filter gets water clogged, and you pray none of it gets past the manifold and into the engine. When just a little water gets into the engine block/pistons, its got no where to go and with the extreme
Testing my GoPro on my 2012 Cayman S BE for the first time. You know that saying if a tree falls in the woods, and no one's there to hear it, does it make a sound? This is what I felt driving the Cayman. You can't see the spoiler auto-deploy in the rear-view mirror at speed. Good for sight- lines, but the cool factor is gone. So, I wanted to see if the spoiler was really doing
Meet my new 2012 Porsche Cayman S Black Edition. I've been lusting over this car for years now and my life-long love of Porsche is finally realized. I never dreamed of owning one growing up, but the used car market can sometimes grant us our greatest wishes. BTW...I didn't intend of getting another black car - but everything else on this car was just right, so I had to pull the trigger. At least it matches my RSX
Tropical storm Cindy is giving the south east more rain than we need and flooding in many areas. In related news, transport company dropped off my sports car today - in the rain. Drove it 1/2 mile from local parking lot to my garage. There it will sit for the next few days, cause Cindy said so
There will be some paperwork and finance to complete, but I should be the proud owner of a new (used) sports car this month! I'll wait to reveal until its sitting in my driveway, but all I can say now is the car is very different from the RSX (and its not a Honda)
Well...just normal Ebay sale that just happens to land on Memorial Day. Props to all men and women in the armed forces. You're doing stuff I wouldn't have the guts to do. Anyone interested in random car stuff like heat wrap, winter windshield cover, or used spark plugs for super cheap...Or maybe some good used Honda/Acura stuff like brake lines, intake manifold, radiator, chain tensioner, rear wiper motor, differential, springs/retainers, front/rear brake rotors: http://www.ebay.com/usr/barronpizza
http://r.ebay.com/3Eddv3 This is a 60mm cat-back exhaust and is a great compliment to the Skunk2 Megapower race header I'm also selling. Should get you 25 WHP when paired together and a tune. Got a sound clip of what these two sound like together on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/XYNADZ117ys
