Feb 19, 2004 update to the Honda S2000 project car

Behind enemy lines

Call it a sneak peak behind enemy lines, but we didn’t run the S2000 last weekend, instead bringing a Subaru Impreza WRX STi to Central Florida Region SCCA’s event at the DeLand Airport. The Subaru may be totally different than the S2000 in practically every way possible, but the cars are both in the same class, along with the Porsche Boxster S, Ford Mustang Cobra, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and fourth-generation Chevy Corvette.

What’s the STi like? Pulls like a freight train, very little turbo lag and good brakes. Feels a little tall in the saddle and could use some suspension work—more negative camber up front would be nice—but there’s definitely no lack of power. Now we want to drive one set up for Street Prepared competition.

Look for the S2000 at Palm Bay, Fla., on Feb. 29, as the Central Florida Region will be hosting another one of their events. Check their Web page for details: http://www.cfrsolo2.com.
