Did that back in the day, GSR with a B16 tranny and an LS 5th gear. Was a fun car. Hondas got me into tuning and tinkering with cars.

Okay. I love the stance and drop in that car. How flush are the wheels? You said no rubbing, is that still the case nearly a year later? With track days and such?

May I ask exactly which coilovers you used? Its gorgeous.

Using BC Racing coilovers with no rubbing issues. Great ride, sporty and not too rough. Highly recommended
