S2000 CR Club Racer Edition CR stands for "club racer," conjuring up the good old days when guys drove their sports cars to the track, raced them, and then, if the racing gods were smiling, drove them home again

I should add, do you REALLY want to drop the car? This is how much compression I get at the track using stock suspension.
Turn 8.8a tends to exact the full extent out of a suspension system.
shhhhh

Additionally, with the amount of force required to get the compression you see in the picture, the swift springs mentioned by Takchi would have you even lower.

Simple math.

Lowers 1.25" font and rear
7.5kg front and 7kg rear spring rate
Hmmm... 1.25" lower, but the spring rate only went up 7%... I think that's asking for trouble.
You'll hit bump stops first before your car slams into the ground... Anyways, the springs will change how your car handles. Buy springs if you want to have a slammed look without changing out your suspension. Don't expect to drastically change how your car feels and your lap times.

I think if you lowered the CR over 1 inch without putting stiffer shocks and stiffer springs your lap times would be slower. The ONLY way to improve on the CR suspension is a good coilover kit. Save your money for a decent coilover kit if you want to modify the CR suspension. Lowering springs are for Civics IMO.

There's a guy in the S2000 Challenge that runs Spec R springs on AP2 shocks (softer than CR shocks). His laptimes are faster than Psychoazn's and mine at the Challenge events mostly due to better driving skill. The top Street class S2000 Challenge guy runs all OEM equipment (no CR parts) and is faster than the guy with the Spec R setup. It's purely based on fine tuning and your driving skill. Coilovers are great but only if you buy one of the best and know how to set it up. Otherwise, you're just going for looks.
