  1. FS: BMSPEC FK7 "Circuit Heart" Demo Car

    Hey guys and gals, I'm not even sure where to put a listing like this, but with BMSPEC leaving aerodynamics R&D, it's time to sell our company's demo car. We've learned and shared a lot about this car in the past 1.5 years - it has even been featured in online publications during its brief...

  3. Streets of Willow Vlog! 1/25/2020

    Generally, trackday organizations are pretty lenient about helmets as long as they're Snell approved and not totally beat up. If you're not *racing* racing, I've seen HPDE participants use SA2005, SA2010, even motorcycle helmets (Snell SM) with no issue. I'm not a frequent instructor but I...

    Hey sorry, I was not planning on keeping the "BMSPEC" branding for our next project so I totally neglected the website lol. Looks like some Chinese guys have swooped in and taken the domain :lol: As for leaving aero, I'm thankful that not too many people have tried to start rumors - basically...
  5. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    Cons: MAPerformance didn't have the space to fit an extra thermostat/bypass into the kit, so there's no temperature regulation and you need to drive the car HARD to get the oil above 212F. Pros: Otherwise, the MAP lines and Setrab core do their job well, and I can do 12+ hot laps in a row with...
  6. Race-Proven Splitters, Wings and Diffusers! BMSPEC

    For the most part. The only stuff I have extra of is a few diffusers, due to some early buyers backing out. Let me know.

  8. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    Thanks guys! Gearing up for a proper send-off now. DIY'd a cold air intake for the stock airbox: final numbers are impressive, IAT1 sits 4-6 deg F above ambient, and IAT2 about 8-11 deg, as long as I have no traffic in front of me. Literally made out of scrap plastic and dryer hose lol. The...
  9. Race-Proven Splitters, Wings and Diffusers! BMSPEC

    Sorry, but yes, posting here was our last hurrah for the aero business. I only have enough brackets and components to make the orders that were placed before July 31.
  10. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    Ironically, now that BMSPEC's web shop has closed, it's more important than ever to finish CH2 :crazy: now as a demonstrator vehicle to show how far you can go with only basic mods. The interior will actually be going back in, fancy USR harness bar and Takata harnesses will be coming out...
  11. Race-Proven Splitters, Wings and Diffusers! BMSPEC

    Unfortunately too late now (I've closed the shop, time to pivot and focus on another product lineup), but the lip goes under the CTR lip, which we simply count as part of the bumper. The way we did lips, our "lip" is everyone else's "splitter" and our "splitter" is just another level beyond for...
  12. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    Still furloughed from shipping out some products thanks to supplier, so we took some scrap material lying around the shop and started stepping down the aero. I'm still going to try to maximize MPG's with the bulkier CTR wing, so the shape of the front splitter and treatment of the...
  13. Race-Proven Splitters, Wings and Diffusers! BMSPEC

    Hey everyone! We are new to this forum but not to making CivicX product, so I wanted to put ourselves out there and see if anyone is interested in REAL aerodynamic upgrades for this platform. We make product for the Type R, Si coupe/sedan, hatchbacks and even the non-Si coupe - our stuff shows...

  15. Racing Design for Everyday Driving

    I've just put it on the site, with information including free-stream 3D CFD that we conducted early in development. The wings outperform the CFD in real life which is a great thing. :)
  16. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    For sure! If this car survives into next year, I'm actually planning on toning down the aero package to be more like our production FK8 stuff: Serious aero and 2G lateral grip has been fun, but I think it's more applicable to our 10th gen fans to show how fast you can go with just basic...
  17. Racing Design for Everyday Driving

    Without revealing too much, let's just say it's like Torque app except we provide data streams that OBDII cannot. :) Since we won't be able to really lay into R&D for this until our batches of aero are all finished, I'm trying not to give our competitors too much of a head start haha. Related...
  18. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    The funny thing about building racecars is that you find out what vendors advertise is not always what's delivered lol. After the stock fender is cut, it's barely any heavier vs. the "carbon" Seibon piece (actually fiberglass with a layer of carbon at the very top). I can 100% assure you as well...
  19. Racing Design for Everyday Driving

    Hello! I know that we haven't really kept much forum presence since we joined as a forum sponsor, so let me fix that now and introduce ourselves: Our little baby company is dedicated to trickling down racing technology and knowledge for the benefit of all enthusiasts - you may have seen some...
  20. "Circuit Heart" Time Attack FK7

    Before anything else, let me mention that we had hacked up the car already to quite a state and our Goudy Honda dealer tags and temp registration were still valid. :D Anyways, onto the next track test! Immediately you can tell that the spring rates are too soft now lmao. Coupled with the...
