  1. Sometimes I Hate This Car

    Oh great - thanks - I just spit coffee out my nose. I'd say you captured me perfectly. I actually often use Grandpa Simpsons voice. When I was young...
  2. Sometimes I Hate This Car

    Yeah - actually I do! Or a better balance between power, suspension and simplicity. I looked for a real race car prior to the R but never did find anything worth a damn. Miata's are great but (old) Miatas are slow and with a race suspension beat the living snot out of you. You know 15 years...
  3. Sometimes I Hate This Car

    But - the seat wiring is UNPLUGGED there is nothing "wrong" with anything. There is no "fault" no "problem" no "error" it just simply isn't there. Seems like they could build that into the fault recognition program? And let's see: you can't rev it to set a shift light because it has a limiter...
  4. Sometimes I Hate This Car

    Yeah of course you are right --- Cut my teeth on VWs and Miatas and just find the overwhelming intrusion of electronic "protection" a bit annoying sometimes. Just wanted to vent. ;-)
  5. Sometimes I Hate This Car

    Heading to the track and with social distancing rules in place you can't have an instructor in the car with you. On top of that I need to bring all my gear: pop-up, chair, coolers, etc.* So I pop the passenger seat out - don't need it and it saves 30 some pounds... So now I have info lights and...
  6. Easiest Way To Drain Radiator

    There is a drain petcock bottom center of radiator. Just a thumb twist to open. Even a drain hole under it! Prepared for a mess and didn't have one. Specs shows 1.25 gallons of coolant and I got out very, very close to that. Oh and it is 6.4 ounces of Motul MoCool to the 1+ gallon of distilled...
  7. Easiest Way To Drain Radiator

    Heading to track. Want to switch to pure distilled water and Motul MoCool. What is the easiest, e-a-s-i-e-s-t way to drain as much of the coolant system as possible? Does the radiator have a good old fashioned drain petcock? If it does can you actually reach it and turn it? Can you loosen a...
  8. Mods optimised for drag racing and straight-line acceleration?

    I fall asleep each night safe in the thought that somewhere in Japan a young Honda engineer is thinking along the same lines. What a car that would be! Imagine that little tiny tweak of smooth power delivery rationed out to each rear wheel independently as you exit a corner at the track! Imagine...
  9. Mods optimised for drag racing and straight-line acceleration?

    Just half-kidding here... For the costs of all those mods for better off the line speeds someone should create a small electric and KERS system that sits in the spare wheel-well. Hear me out --- let's face it - off the line a 1998 Saturn will kick the R's ass. Imagine if you could retrofit the...
  10. Hood Vents

    LOL THANKS! I was hoping someone would explain that... Car moves forward at 80 MPH air passes through grill in which direction?
  11. Hood Vents

    OK Here Goes: I could go on for hours but I'll do my best to keep it short. Here is what I came up with --- 1) Swapped out the restrictive front grill for the EBay special. Clearly a huge difference in open grill. Now whether the air passing through it has anywhere to go? I'm not so sure. 2)...
  12. Hood Vents

    Oh goodness yeah - if you don't track it or often get stuck in Atlanta traffic in August I wouldn't mess with a thing. I just pulled my own scoop and cut out all I could under it but still replace it without any evidence. Bought a used Type R scoop from a junk yard and got some aluminum...
  13. Hood Vents

    They? Which ones? Are we adding yet another "will be" to the already rather long list of "we are planning..." Anyone have a set you can actually buy, I'm getting pretty sick of pictures of cool shit that isn't actually available.
  14. Shift Light Install

    Finally getting around to doing this install. Why the OBDII splitter cord? Are you running the shift light and a dash or TrackMate or something else along with it? Why not plug-and-play? Thanks
  15. HELP! iPod Skip

    Oh hey - sorry just to be clear I wasn't being a smart-ass. Basically the only fix was to not use an iPod. Sad, really sad but technology moves on...
  16. HELP! iPod Skip

    Android Auto. Downloaded the app, sorted out how to get my playlist on my phone, plug it in and it really does work! Full control through the Honda interfaces.
  17. What Front Splitter is everyone running?

    LOL - $275 I wish! Tack on another $100... I genuinely feel a bit like I got ripped off!
  18. What Front Splitter is everyone running?

    I ordered the AeroFlowDynamics and after messing around with it for a few hours it went back in the box and will go up for sale if things ever return to normal. Zero written instructions, zero pictures/video of how-to, zero tech. support, turns out you need to do the usual full front bumper...
  19. Ebay Grill Swap

    Car just got back from a drive so pardon the bugs/dirt. Had a track day scheduled for May the 4th in Alabama so I wanted to work on getting things just a little cooler under the hood but doing it on-the-cheap. This is one of those off e-bay aftermarket grills. Definitely opened things up and...
  20. What did you do to your Type R today?

    What did I do to my Type R today? I went out and drove the piss out of it. That's what I did. What a car!
