[FEATURE] Picture Me Rollin’: Jason Wu’s Track To Street S2000

It’s been a long while since I’ve done any action or roller shots of any car, so when my buddy Jason requested some rollers of his daily driver, I didn’t hesitate to jump on the opportunity. What’s interesting about his daily driver is it’s actually a dual purpose S2000, both for street and track duties that’s equipped with a big Voltex Type II spoiler. His other car; an E90 M3 that’s also equipped with a Voltex wing and is very similar to the S2000 as far as tasteful and functional modifications are concerned. So, without further adieu, some shots of the Rio S2000 after the break. Enjoy.

First off, an old shot of the weekend warrior.

A little rusty with rollers but I think they came out okay. The sun was beating down on us, so conditions were not that favorable.

Views from the Great Highway in San Francisco.

The newly added Voltex Type II is a must for any track car.

A couple of static shots to round out this short set. Wheels are 17×10 +45 S2000 spec Volk Racing CE28n.

Finishing the post off with my favorite shot from the set.

Thanks for looking! Until next time…

MoMo Goes To TYPE ONE [Part I: The Spoon AP2]

It’s been a little over a week since I’ve updated the site, but I still have some Japan trip photos to post up, so let’s get the ball rolling again with the next set of photos. This next set consist of the first part of my visit to Type One which is pretty much the workshop for the Honda powerhouse, Spoon Sports. For this first part of my Type One visit, I decided to give a little in depth look at the Spoon demo car that was sitting outside the shop (It’s for sale for about $33,000 USD if anyone is interested).

The car was hiding around the corner of the shop, but you can see a peek of the new Super Taikyu front end as you walk by.

Just chillin’ on the sidewalk waiting for someone to pick it up.

The Spoon rear end is definitely a very hard piece to pull off, but I think it looks pretty nice on this demo.

The Spoon side mirror is a great replacement piece for a sleeker look compared to OEM.

The infamous blue Spoon calipers mated to a set of Potenza RW006 wheels.

And one more shot of the gorgeous Gran Prix White AP2.

Stay tuned for the next part as I head inside the Type One shop. Until then, enjoy!

MoMo Visits ASM Autobacs Yokohama [Part II]

Here we are, a continuation from my last post, this time around let’s check out the inside of the famous ASM HQ.

First step inside, another fitting slogan to live by.

Then, a quick turn to your right and you’re greeted by one of the most beautiful sights in the world. The Great Wall of Recaros.

There were literally Recaros everywhere…

A few of my favorites including the $7K+ Recaro SP-X Avant.

Authentic goodness were littered everywhere.

But the main attraction in the whole shop was non other than the ASM time attacker.

ASM Rep, Yuki Kurinobu was very accommodating and was kind enough to give me a small rundown of the ASM time attack S2000. The dry carbon were super light!

The Toda ITBs makes this F22C extra special.

Of course efficient cooling is essential to any time attack machine, and the ASM S2000 has all the right cooling capabilities.

Every ounce saved is seconds off the clock.

With great engine power comes great stopping power, thanks to AP Racing BBKs, this S2000 can stop on a dime.

Yuki told me that the ASM Sabelt harness were newly fitted to the Recaros.

And finally, a small glimpse to the work area.

I gotta say, ASM Autobacs was probably the tidiest shop that was on my itinerary but not quite my favorite. I’ll explain on my next post. Stay tuned~
