Very ready to see this come together. Absolutely delighted to see you come back to S2000's.

I'm sure you'll do it justice & hopefully we'll get to see some very sexy products we can purchase.

Are you considering the Karcepts anti-roll bars and Penske, JRi, or Ohlins TTX shocks?

We hadn’t been considering them but after doing a bit of research they’re definitely on the cards now.
With regards to suspension we’ve got a few ideas.

ill try to do a proper update later in the week to let everyone know what it is we’re planning on doing with this build. If anyone has any recommendations on any parts that you’d like to see or have used please feel free to post them in the thread

thanks

Team HEL

I'd like to see:
- Syvecs ECU
- Quaife Sequential, properly mapped
- TTS's new Rotrex s'charger that'll do 650-700bhp.
- V-Mount rad setup
- Urge Header (apparently making extremely strong power)
- Puddy diff
- Accusump
- Science of Speed Fuel surge container
- CF Propshaft
- AP Racing 5000 series brakes up front + twin piston rear whilst retaining a rear handbrake
- DSS half shalfts/Axles
- MilSpec loom (whole car, not just the bay)
- Benson sleeved block or Kings Performance Billet F20

I've yet to see anyone manage the above and actually run a car for more than about 15 minutes before they broke something or ran out of energy. But arguably, that's got to be pretty close to the ultimate S2000 without ths usual 'dry carbon everything' comments.

Since you folks have significant fabrication capability, note that double eye shocks are significantly less expensive then shocks with a shaft or fork mount. You may be able to fabricate a top mount and modify the lower mount to take advantage of that. For example, Penske 7500DA for US$2800(Lefthander Racing) or 4-way adjustable Ohlins ILX(same as TTX) for US$5000 (RESuspensions)

Either way, with the Wisefab, as you likely aware, the shocks will be in their normal travel range with a 40mm drop. This should allow a normal rear shock. Otherwise, Penske, apparently Ohlins (based on what PSI sells), the OE rear shocks have external reservoirs.

You can probably also build adapters for US oval track late model brakes. They are the same as other calipers and have piston sizes appropriate for an S2k (late model stock cars are similar in weight, weight distribution, and CG). The latest PFC Z94 calipers (which have internal crossover tubes) are $500. PFC's current floating rotor mount is phenomenal, using a snap ring similar to the Spirolock on a piston pin the hold the rotor to the top hat. You would need custom top hats though. Lefthander is an easy site to browse prices, but their are numerous sources.

It looks like you a planning air jacks. Do you have similar designs on racing pedals? If so, are you using an ABS? The only racing ABS I'm aware of is the rather expensive Bosch unit.

Presumably, you are doing a paddle shifted sequential. There was an interesting thread on an Australian site discussing the gear technology. Interesting result, no discernable power loss in helical vs. straight-cut and helical is stronger; the choice of straight cut is a manufacturing decision.
