    Out of curiosity, after my first couple runs, I wondered if there was another VSA disable setting, and tried holding the button down and after about 10 seconds it was confirmed with another loud beep. I must have missed this in the manual. I'm not sure it ever got in the way anyway, but probably in extremely awkward autocross maneuvers it would. So pre-run is putting the car in +R mode then holding the VSA button down until what I assume is fully disabled. Am I good now? In my ES Miata, all I have to do is start the car...

    Try this:



    Granted i've tried the method above and also holding the button down for 10 seconds and I dont notice a difference. The only thing with the method above is that it defaults you to sport mode and not R+.

    I got a chance to drive a Type R at a local event on Saturday .damn the car is violent on acceleration and turn in.

    It's very fun and quite capable, but I wasn't faster in it than in my Si .I was about 2.6s slower actually. Part of it I'm sure is due to familiarity, but another was tires and weight.

    Solid cars both the Type R and the Si are

    Just figured i'd throw this out there since i've been canvassing the GS thread already. Is anyone going to Lincoln for Solo Nationals? Due to the newborn I wont be able to take the time required to drive to Lincoln but I think I can swing a couple days to fly in and co-drive a car if there was someone looking for a driver to help split costs in return for a drive. Currently my familiarity this season is mainly around the CTR so a drive in one would be ideal.This would be my first nationals so as a Rookie I dont have high expectations but I mainly want to run just for the experience. Anyhow... give me a PM if anyone's potentially interested.

    two weeks until our test n tune event. all my parts are here and ready (nsx ys with 255/35 re71rs and karcepts .095" wall rsb installed today). will get the tires scrubbed in this event.

    install was very straight forward. big ups to my homie james (from kauai, here for our banquet on sunday) for the help.

    Took the R out for it's first National Tour event and just fell short of the win in the class by 0.098. Im sure the 100 deg heat didnt help things but the car and the event was a blast!

    Nice!

    Btw I had the car on the scales with around 6-7 gals of fuel and she weighed in at 3060 at the tour... just in case anyone was curious!

    thx for the info. i may throw the car on the scales tomorrow at test n tune to confirm.

    acuity upgrades installed. i just wanted the shifter to feel like my03 AP1... and now it does. shifter bushings were done last night so no pics.
    heel toe is so much easier with the pedal relocation. position b ftw!
