Well I finally got to participate in my first organized race event with my turbo S2000 this past weekend.

WannaGoFast hosted a 1/2 mile race about an hour from our shop and I decided I wanted to see what the little S had.  Saturday I ran on my standard drag radial setup (275/40/17 Mickey Thompson drag radials) and managed to click off a run of 164.9mph on my first run. I had the boost set at 17psi max, and turned it up to my normal 20psi map for the rest of the weekend. Long story short, the car was scary f@#king unstable up top. The wide tires and 9 inch wide wheels did not like the 150mph+ area. 
 
 
I swapped a set of 18x9.5 wide wheels with some 245/40/18 tires on for Sunday's races and the car was way way more stable. I managed to click off both a 171.8mph run and a 170mph run back to back! I think technically I have the S2000 1/2 mile world record lol!

Car has been under the knife for a little while now. I really enjoyed the 1/2 mile race I did and decided I wanted to really start building my car towards setting some impressive speeds there.  I think 175-177 is attainable at the same power level I was at before, but needed to address traction, stability, gearing, and aero mostly.

 

For traction and stability I ended up ditching my old wheel and tire setup for a set of 18-inch Forgeline LS3's. 11's in the back with 295 R888's and 9's in the front with 255 R888's. Needless to say the car did need some body work to make them fit without some stupid camber setup.

The PPG gearbox will have a customer drop gear that will allow 190+ top speed (176 previously at 9k) and will aid substantially in gear splits and not shitting parts out.  Anyways, I'll post up more when its all said and done, but its sitting pretty nice now!

Sick build. Theres a fully built s2000 in my area with a gear set and probably 50k+ into it. Its pretty untouchable at 150+. Hopefully in a few years ill change that. :)

My receipts are piling up to lol. The bright side is there are only a few more big ticket items to take care of and its pretty much "done" at that point.

The list is considerably smaller than it was last year already, so there is that at least!

Never shared the somewhat final project with the new stuff done. Pretty damn satisfied! (sorry pics aren't super sharp, haven't uploaded to my SmugMug yet)
