What do you mean by the direction the community is heading? Dying? Lol.
Thanks Connor!

Dying, yet resurrecting at the same time? As the chassis gets older/cheaper, more of the "typical Honda head" people are buying them and I was getting tired of being asked the same questions over and over again because people don't want to put in their own research. The FRS/BRZ/86 community isn't much different, besides it being a bigger swimming pool, but there was also a strikingly less of a sense of community between when I first started going to Fit meets to how it currently stands. And again, community didn't factor in much as far as me deciding to get rid of the Fit, but it is definitely much different.

The percentage of younger folks even getting a drivers license by end of high school has been dropping hard. I see a complete lack of car enthusiasts in the current generation.

Less "young" people (under 18) are getting their licenses? Either are home bodies, or parents drive them around, or if they are 18+ they Uber/Lyft everywhere. I feel this may be true for highly/densely populated areas.

your fit was very clean! loved seeing your updates on this thread.

but i have to agree with the scene for the fit, its nothing like japan/thailand here, i find there is too much mainstream people owning fits and modding (if at all) is very weak and all they do is HID's and some rims and they think its the SHIT, i guess the fit is what it is a commuter, anyone that is hardcore into honda's would do up a K20 EK/EG, built ITR, or NSX

your 86 is looking good, hope to see more updates on it too!

I'd agree with that. Even between my freshman year of college and now (my senior year of college), there have been less younger people coming out to the car meets. I'd say that the interest in modifying cars extensively has been dropping as technology has been on the rise. I feel like today's market seeks out the "out of the box" packages rather than modifying it yourself.

Then again, when I do meet someone younger than me that is into cars, its usually "YEAH STANCE BRO LOOK AT MY ESR'S ON RACELAND COILOVERS"

Thanks man, I'm a big fan of your Fit build and your S chassis as well!

Very true, theres not as much interest stateside in the Fit chassis as everywhere else in the world. Again, not that it mattered too much, but it's nice meeting other enthusiasts that are into the same chassis. Gives a larger sense of community, and the competitiveness is a nice balance for encouragement to keep going with the build. I unfortunately lost sight of that in the Fit but I do miss the shocking look on people's faces when they realized how much work I put into the car.

The 86 is currently at a plateau for mods besides the Vertex wheel I just picked up, but I need to acquire the hub for it also. Aside from that, still waiting things out to see how money goes since all the partout funds are gone from the Fit.
