Hopefully you will be in a spot where you are able to continue. Even if intermittently. Obviously RL and health comes first. With any luck, these times will pass sooner than later. Really enjoy the content you share. Always looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us next ;)

Damn Frank, your engine bay is as clean as your car’s interior and exterior. So beautiful and impressive. Am in awe of every picture you post. Such a clean ride, looking forward to seeing what you have planned next!

Sweet build! The wheels are +45 offset right? Any fender work required to get them to fit with the 265/35s on Swifts? And did you need rear camber arms after the Swifts to get the rear toe in a good spot?

Totally forgot to post but I was able to get my hands on a new Hondata Flashpro to play around with while quarantined. So far I was able to unlock my ECU and jailbreak it. Base tune has since been installed and it's made the driving experience that much better.

Hey guys!

So far I haven’t let the Corona Virus and all its issues hold me down. Today I received the Cusco front and rear subframe brace bars. I think these combined with the Spoon Sport Rigid Collars is going to tighten things up nicely. I also have a few things arriving this week that will help me fine tune the suspension and other aspects of the car. Hope everyone is out there staying safe.

Dude. Your build is so sick lol.

Idk if I've asked you before in another thread, but how was the rigid collars install? Did you do it on jackstands? Notice any difference in performance/would you say they're worth it?

Same questions for the Anti-Lift kit lol. Those are two suspension/chassis mods I think are really interesting.

Keep up the good work man, love seeing this thread updated.

Hey bro, thanks for your questions. I actually installed everything at my mechanics shop so I could use his lift. I did the Rigid Collars, and the Anti Lift kit as well as the Cosco subframe braces around the same time so it’s hard to tell which one is doing the most to help. What I can say is this car is agile as heck! I think everything has definitely help out in handling and stiffening this up for the better.

Hey bro thanks for your questions. 1) I do most of my own work but my friend owns a mechanic shop in Belleville called 3J Auto, he lets me use his lift from time to time if he isn't busy. 2) Specs on th Titans are 18x9.5 et45, I got my Titans from Hybrid Racing because they were cheaper their. Im always available to try and help out.
