First time ordering from ICB motorsports and it wasn't a good one.

I ordered 4 a-flat o ring caps in time attack white instead i received 2 a-flat o ring in regular white & 2 a-flat small o ring in regular white. Totally different color and size :thumbsdown:

Just an update on dealing with ICB motorsports.
I can't believe a shop in business for so long, sell tons of Rays products insists 2 different sizes caps would fit. Apparently they don't know the difference between A-Flat O-RIng from A-Flat Small O-ring. Should've read yelp reviews before ordering from them

Finally installed new wheels and tires. 18x9.5 +45 Mita Y wheels with Continental DWS06 + 265/35/18. Yeah lower would look better but I don’t ever want to rub. Stock wheel and tire is 52 lbs. This set up is 42 lbs each.

Just got back from the initial drive and can say I like the improved acceleration feeling with a much lighter wheel and tire setup. Medium throttle input and I feel more pushed back in my seat than with the oem setup. I do feel the “more floaty” less on rails that people mention when changing to a softer sidewall tire. The roundabouts I am used to don’t feel like I’m on rails anymore. I knew that would happen and the trade off is improved comfort for daily use and road trips. Last thought from the first drive is it’s super easy to spin the wheels/chirp the tires while accelerating in first and second with these tires. Again, expected. I’m satisfied with having a second set up for “regular” driving around town.

The dws 06+ are a great compromise tire. I have them myself and am incredibly happy with them but it is a noticeable change in “sportiness” from the oem contis or a more focused summer tire for sure.

Was able to clean the car after getting the new carbon fiber hood PPF'd. Washed it on my way to the track for another weekend with regional Nasa group.

No I've got the AWE track edition on now. Will be recording some better audio of it in the near future. In the video the audio used is from my GoPro session that is mounted on the windshield... it's not ideal for good engine/exhaust noises. But I just got a mic to get better audio.

Finally got the new badges from Carbon sixth element. They look great. Only issue i have been having when it comes to aftermarket badges for the type R is they never fit right. Or only the front Honda emblem fits correctly. These were a bit small but because it's black on black you can barley tell. I don't know if that's on purpose or i just lucked out but still satisfied either way.

Yikes! I just ordered some from them. If mine coming looking like that I am going to be super annoyed.

For the past 11 days I gently modified the fender liners by rubbing a heavy FK8 body up against the new Mich PS4S tires. No damage visible on tires but plastic liners have been heated some naturally to accommodate tires. These are same size as A/S (255/35-19) but I didn’t think about how much diff the near zero rear camber arms adjusted (was -2.7 now -.17) created rub. Will have a degree or so neg added to rear next week. Even empty though, the fronts made contact just a little on Tail of the Dragon. Son & I are about done or TN (Gatlinburg/P’Forge) & NC adventure visiting many parks/waterfalls, car museums, & Charlotte NASCAR Track…. all at 34 MPG.

I learned that NC Elk don’t read (or maybe just heed) Deer Crossing signs.

I picked up another set of wheels but was curious on the reverse staggered look. 18x10 up front, 18x9.5 in the back.

Bob L runs reverse staggered, surely he’ll have insight.
