Well I finally got the car on the 17th of January. Haven't really taken any pics. Today I had to finalize the inspection and pay all the taxes due and get my plates. Anyways on to some pics, though I haven't really even taken any.

Just home from the dealership, that is a temp plate.

Decided to go for a little drive and ended up over in Kawasaki, so found the Super Autobacs and bought a couple more goodies.

J's quick release and WorksBell short hub. Actually it is a WorksBell QR with J's logo on it. I already had a WorksBell QR in red with the silver sleeve, but when I saw the J's one in their catalog I knew I would pick it up if I saw it and there it was sitting all by itself at SA asking for a good home.

That's it for now, when I have time I'll try to get better pics up.

Took a little drive today, well about 310km worth to put some mileage on the engine and clutch so I can start ripping around in it. Ended up over at one of Japan's most famous landmarks...富士山 (Mt. Fuji). It was somewhat cloudy around the mountain, so couldn't really take any decent pictures.

Driving up... It's a little long and maybe a bit boring, speed limit was only 50km/h and that is all I was doing...or was I x 2?!?! Doesn't really look it at all though.

Unrelated to the Fit, but couple videos of my old 5R Teggy and Snisen. The 5R video, you might want to turn DOWN your volume.

5R in a parking garage cleaning out any carbon...
YouTube - MyoldDC5RTeggy.mkv

Snisen out on an auto-x course. My fastest time of the day and fastest overall as well.
YouTube - MyoldSnisenAutoXinGuam.mkv

The quality is not so great unfortunately.

Thanks guys. The suspension for the meantime will be the Honda Access sussy. It lowers 25mm front and rear. Later on I'll go with something more.

I guess you would be referring to the interior bits from Js. I'm not into show, but I do like some eyecandy for myself. Call me Uncle Ben for all I care.

Suspension will be on the car with the Honda Access setup for now which lowers the car 25mm and I will have the Js lower arms with the roll center adjusters installed already. Later down the road I will probably go with the Crux setup.

I bought a Honda for the 7th time all of which were non turbo. I guess I should specify when I say go I mean DRIVING and not straight line. Going straight doesn't do anything for me.

well technically the seats could be listed as performance mods, for 1 they keep you in place completely which is quite desirable when running through turns full tilt and not to mention will shave about 50lbs +/- some. Weight savings is always a good thing.

I won't boost it, but one day down the road I want to go K with it. I miss my old K in the 5R Integra, actually much preferred it over the F22 in the Snisen that followed. Now a hybrid of the F and K is really a motor that shines. F lower internals with a K head and easy 11000rpms on all stock pieces. Yummmy!!!

very nice start, but i agree, you need to plan some power mods. i hate drag racing hondas, but the fit is a slug and it needs a little extra power moreso than other hondas.
