The day has arrived! Biggest exterior changes yet for the TYPAAHH! Spoon front and rear cf lip versions & Voltex Type 2v wing. Also picked up the jdm Honda Access fogs and new replacement emblems for the front. Next on the list is to finally install all the motor mods I have laying around in boxes and get it tuned.

Quick post on everything done from 2017 till now....

Threw on 18x9.5 +45 Enkei Nt03RR wrapped in 255/40/18 Falken Azenis RT615k+. Also did Eibach pro kit lowering springs.

In January I went to my first track event in almost 10 years...haha...I was extremely impressed at how well the car handled at Chuckwalla. After that 2 day event with Team Topak Racing I was hooked and back on that go fast life.

A mod I knew I had to get after the track event was an exhaust as I couldn't hear the car at all with my helmet on. I ended up contacting Rampage Fabrications in Washington and ordering their full titanium 3" system w/ custom tips. Gabe was super helpful in making sure everything went smooth with the install as it was the first system he built after the prototype. Car was pretty loud but I've grown to live with it for the streets. On the track it's perfect and makes all the right noises so I can pay more attention to the road instead of my tach.

Next Topak event was at Streets of Willow and I was super excited as I had watch so many videos and dvds showing this track in use. It was a dream come true for me and I also soon learned just how much tire melting action this track will induce.


Decided I wanted to have a street setup for wheels so I ordered some gun blue SSR Gtx01 in 19x9.5 +38 w/ 255/35/18 Federal RSRR. While I waited for the wheels to arrive I also ordered Fortune Auto 500 coilovers. Everything came together at the same time and I did the install as planned. I knew I would have to cut, bang and roll fenders to get this setup to sit right so I busted out the safety equipment and did the work necessary to make space for this setup and future wheel/tire setups.

I didn't use the sawzal in that first photo as it wasn't going to be good enough to make proper curves while cutting so I ened up using my dremel with a metal blade. The other thing I didn't document was that I used a 4lb hammer to push out the fender as much as possible without showing through once the plastic flare piece was trimmed and put back on. Everything is pretty straight forward once you take a detailed look at what you need to do if you want to make the actual flare Honda put on the car functional. Everything bolts/sticks right back up and you can't tell anything was modified unless you get on the floor to get a different view.

After installing the wheels and dialing in the suspension I kept looking at the car day to day and soon realized....I don't like the ctr on 19s either...20s are goofy and 19s still make it look a bit odd to me...no offense to anyone that feels differently but I just needed to go back to 18s. Plus once I modified the fenders I knew the SSRs weren't close to pushing wheel fitment on the ctr. I've always been super ocd with my fitment on wheels and suspension so the ctr has been butchered to be the next victim to my obsession with that sweet sweet stance baby life.

Enter the 18x10.5 +35 Advan RG D2....

It was only a week with the SSRs and I hated myself for switching it up so fast because I wasn't satisfied...thankfully they sold very quick and I was able to bite the bullet on the Advans and tires at the same time. I also needed rear camber adjustment so I purchased a set of Hardrace rear camber arms from Nemo's Garage here in SoCal.

These have the bracket to mount the sensor back onto them.

Onto the current street setup for the car:

These photos were taken before alignment was done....I just set everything to make it clear around most things. I still have more work to do on the fenders as it'll rub slightly on large dips...rubs on plastic under the front and rear that I just need to trim away.

Current alignment is set at F: -3.5 camber, 0 toe. R: -4 camber, 0.4 toe total

Oh, tires are 275/40/18 Falken Fk510. Going to go back to the RK615k+ once I use these up a bit...maybe try 295/30/18.
Did you get rid of the Mugen stuff?

So many great little details you've addressed with the mods. Not too subtle, but it's all tied together nicely. Good job!

It's never too late to change it up. :) And thank you!

I like to think of my taste in mods is "simple yet bold" haha. Thank you!

Grats! You're going to love it. In a perfect world I'd have love to reuse the Varis rear diffuser with the Spoon rear but the shape is really different.
