Ryan, I had gone before you deduced that your bushes were seized etc sorry to hear that, but that would explain the crabbing and the worn rear tyre, however it's good that the seller has agreed to sort you out with some financial assistance, the car will be transformed once Ray does his magic, in the mean time be very careful driving it about

Will be good to have the car in good shape especially for the Chomondley Pageant of Power day in the early summer that should be a cracking day out, we should aim to get a lot of NW folk down there make it a big deal.
Lee and I scoped out the best vantage points last year so we know where to go

I'll bring a genny and my rig so we can get people blasting round tracks in virtual S2000s

We have talked about this a few times at meets etc, Honda don't specify weighting the car, but placing drivers weight in the car does make quite a bit of difference on the settings, but so does 1/4 of a tank of fuel to full so if you mainly drive on your own then it's worth a try to see how you get on, but then remember when you have a passenger you have unbalanced your settings again, there is a Member who runs this way, which ever way you choose will be compromised at some point, but it's mainly done for track and sprinting, the caster isn't max'ed out

Good stuff.

Ron's looking a bit leaner than normal there, needs a few more pounds for leverage

Who did your bolts last time?
Hahaha!! Yes mark I have been on a radical weight loss program for the start of the new season.
I'm not surprised you've lost weight Ron - licking toe arms isn't exactly very fattening is it?

Daytona-Dave will look into it, i do drive on my own mostly as i did with my motobikes,

Speaking of Cpop https://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/107...#entry22996010

I had an email back from the S800 owners club, we may well get a few of them to team up with us
How cool will that be, old & new on the club stand!
