--2016--

I picked up this champ back in January of 2016, from the dealership I used to work at:

2009 Fit DX-A with 22000km on the ODO.

I could barely see the road so i opted in for the accessory fog light kit from Honda.



My interior only came with the centre dome light, so I cut out a hole, did some research and put in my own map light (using OEM only parts, of course).


Then came wheels and tires. a buddy of mine had a pair of 16" rims laying around so he gave those to me. Paired it up with RPF1's (With different offsets) to make up for one complete set.




I had 1 Recaro SPG full bucket laying around, so i tossed those in as well.




Then a friend of mine invited me to come join them for a session on the track in late October.
My fit wasn't semi track ready yet, so I got to work


Goodridge SS brake lines, Hawk HP+ pads, OEM rotors

didn't like the look without side skirts or a rear spoiler, so i came across another GE8 that was involved in a front end accident, ripped the spoilter and side skirts off and fitted them on mine.



fabbed some brackets and mounted a LED light bar (WHY NOT?!)


(more to come)

I also had installed a Cusco front upper strut bar (no picture, sorry!) Earlier in 2017.

Earlier this year, I wanted to compete in time attack racing and see where my skill level was at.

first things first, suspension. I was always called out on because my car was always 4x4 stance.



Next up, brakes again!



Stoptech slotted rotors with hawk HP+ pads

Wanted to improve my cooling efficiency, so I did this
