Attached is the Blackstone analysis of oil from my MY00 with 88k miles after 5 track days and 4k miles. At least for my motor, I can't see any reason to change the oil more often. I am running an oil...

Before you go away from OEM for the clutch, spend some time here reading about others who have "upgraded" to aftermarket pressure plates and discs. Not everyone is happy with it - especially on the...

No, I went with the SBG Wilwood front kit + URGE rear rotors which was reasonably affordable and yet also able to handle the track. Hence I stopped looking at new kits. There was so much...

I believe that combination is on the third tab on line 14. It would shift bias to the front around 7%.

I can't help you with the GoPro in particular, but I looked at this in 2017 and chose the Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 over the GoPro for two main reasons:

I'll add two thoughts:

Regardless of Honda's recommendation, I've seen many on this board check valves far before 100k and found some were too tight. When I bought my MY00 with 58k miles, most...

I too swap pads between track and street. At the track I usually just go easy for the first part of the first session and it takes care of bedding. For me, I'm really not giving anything up as I'd go...

So if we take 11k as the point at which valve damage becomes possible, the additional safety margin the upgraded retainers provides is around 2k RPM. If I've done the math right, 9k rpm in third gear...

I'll add that in general, a staggered setup with stiffer front springs is going to understeer more/oversteer less if all else is equal. Some people prefer a loose (oversteer) car and are faster that...

It's hard to tell from just the camera, but it seemed like you were sliding the rear tires more on the opening two laps which might have overheated the rears. Once you adjusted how you added power on...

Good question. If I only drove on the street I probably would have left the suspension stock except for a set of Eibach Pro springs. They are about 20% stiffer, lower the car around an inch, and...
