S2000 Track Debut

We all know it wouldn't take long for the S2000 to hit the track and see what is capable of. I have been a long proponent and supporter of how great stock cars are from the factory. A lot of times the best way to enjoy whatever car it is that you own is in its oem configuration. Reliability, ease of use and overall enjoyability are words that come to mind when you can take a car as the manufacturer designed and produced it and use it as it was meant to be used. The 2004 Honda S2000 is the example of this. When I purchased the car the only aftermarket modification on it was a Karcepts Front Sway Bar because "S2000 death oversteer." I don't know the car any other way and have never had a complaint about its performance driving compliance. It got fresh Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires on it in the OEM sizes when I took ownership and of course for the track we are at least going to do brake pads and fluid as we have always stated in the past being the bare bones prep for any track car. That along with a fresh oil change, transmission fluid and differential fluid was all that was done for the first trip to the track.

The FIRM in Starke, FL is our local shakedown track and let's be honest, just a great place to go and flog a car for a day as it is easily accessible and always open. After some warm up laps to get acquainted with the car a rabbit (errr, in this case a frog) is a great thing to chase to get up to speed quickly. 2 of the quicker laps from running at the FIRM (1:25.1 and 1:24.8) 2004 Honda S2000 Stock Springs / Shocks Stock Engine Karcepts Front Sway Bar Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Tires (OEM 215 Front, 245 Rear Sizes) Hawk DTC-60 Front Pads HP+ Rear Pads Castrol SRF Brake Fluid
