  1. ?! Continental SportContact 6 > Michelin Pilot Sport 4S?

    Not surprised about the wet grip though. Conti had been really good with their Max Performance in the wet. Extreme Contact Sport was fantastic in the wet.

    I'm at a few hundred miles shy of 35k at this point...no real problems but lots of annoyances...
  3. Modifying stock exhaust

    As noted by @Rich19Si the drone is actually A LOT worse in the back seat than the front.... I did what I did to drop weight on the exhaust system(stock one is actually decently light, but we were able to get 20lb out of it). In hindsight though I'd plan better to be able to put a resonator in...
  4. Modifying stock exhaust

    I did the front pipe first and honestly I can't remember if it did anything to the sound. I am currently running without the resonator and it is louder and also more drony so if you are sensitive to that I would not recommend it. Though its not just resonator delete since we made a custom...

    I didn't know you have options to not lock the door for runs. Thought they luck automatically above some speed anyway? FWIW I've never had this happen and I never turn the rev-match function off, not that I've used it all that much during autocrossing. Because of the talk of the car being quite...

  7. Swapping Out Wheels Using One Jack - Possible or Risky?

    Agree with the above, I think its not unusual that we neglect to use the jackstands pretty often. For sure most of the time I probably don't really bother to use it when I swap tires on my own cars. But any time I am planning to do any more extended amount of work with the corner in the air I'd...
  8. Swapping Out Wheels Using One Jack - Possible or Risky?

    I mean you can do that with a normal Civic also, and pretty much any cars these days....
  9. PSA: New high offset forged wheel available

    Having options are nice. Considering there weren't a lot to choose from in terms of DS legal wheels. I think NSX wheels are still the best "default" higher priced option from a weight/quality standpoint. The ease of purchasing is an issue as is the lug nut socket thing(I have a turned down...
  10. Center cap question

    I just ordered an extra set of stock Type R center caps for them on eBay. They fit the NSX wheels as well as the Motegi 19s...
  11. Official Aegean Blue Type R Picture Thread

    I think aside from the fact that Aegean Blue is a regular Honda color, I also like it better than Boost Blue....just seems to have more depth to it..
  12. Electronic E-Brake issue after brake job

    Yeah I ended up not disconnecting the connector since I hate plastic automotive connectors and I am always afraid of breaking them....They do sell the O-ring and bolts as a replacement kit. The part I had the most annoyance on is tightening one of the slider pins. As the access to it is really...

    Well maybe people from Detroit won't be welcomed in other states for a while....lol
  14. D-Street Type R AutoX info sharing

    I currently have no plan of autocrossing at all. Maybe silly, maybe overreaction, but I'm not terribly optimistic about things being normal for much of this year. Good excuse to save money also considering the deferred salary situation at GM as well. Subject to change of course if things do...

    Good info, now to decide if I wanna buy yet another bar for the car...lol

    the brake yanks you around pretty hard with the yaw control thingy...
  17. D-Street Type R AutoX info sharing

    When I ran the BFG I ran the full stiff setting before. Once we switched to RE71R I never needed more than the middle setting and probably could stick with second to softest. So the range is probably pretty usable. The softest setting is actually softer than stock which might be useful in the...

    Curious if anyone got the RV6 rear bar. Softer rate than Karcepts but looks like it might be stock endlinks compatible. And its the bar they put on the turnkey Type R Touring car that Honda announced recently...
