86 Stage 1: Test Run

So a bit of an update

Adam from C’s Garage kindly let me work on the 86 in his garage seeing as my driveway was shithouse gravel.

With a few things to do before the 86 Trackday next weekend we got onto it after work for the passed 2 days to get to the point we are at now!

3Puck Silk Road Clutch and Toda Flywheel were installed, along with the help of Mark from Team Blink, Nagisa Auto Tension Rods and adjustable Panhard was installed

Adam welded up a new 02 Sensor flange on my new extractors and got the exhaust sitting higher than before which was awesome.

My friend Matt came to help out tonight with the rust side of things patching up a hole above the boot latch.

My Bride Vios III was put in as well as a quick release boss kit which sorted out my driving position.

So once this all came together tonight Matt took some photos: Check his other Photos out here – Matt’s Blog

Seeing as Im going to be running around the same wheel setup as Adam runs on his wagon we decided to test fit the Starsharks on the 86

The Rears definitely need to flared out but I had already planned on doing them but this will come after the trackday.

With that confirmed, we dropped it back down onto the ground with the skidder watanabes and off for a test run.

Even with really old tyres all round (Cracked Sidewalls Grid II’s and Dunlop Lemans haha) the car really stuck to the road and handles nice. Kept Matts DC2R on its toes. The Toda Flywheel definitely made a lot of difference keeping the standard bigport in the torque range which im very happy about. More work to do tomorrow including half cage install and small bits and pieces. Definitely needs an alignment!

After that test run, I went for a ride in Matts DC2R and he definitely made me remember why I love hondas again! Especially when they are as well setup as his!

Such a mint example of a DC2R and being a 98 Spec its got very nice factory bits and pieces to make this a unique Type R Integra, He also took me for a touge lap which had the RE-11 Tyres screeching through the corners which made me laugh a lot! So much fun! Makes me want a honda Track car!

More updates to come!
