Some new shots and some new updates- Since I plan on keeping the car NA, new mods are somewhat limited for this car. I have been thinking of going with a more aggressive look, so the J’s Racing 3D GT Wing (Type 2) came up at the right time. I found this used on nsxprime in fairly decent condition. Larry from Project X Customs referred me to Edgar who did a great job refinishing and re-clearing the wing. Thanks also to PX who powdercoated the bases for me in a satin black finish. In case you guys are wondering, this wing was originally intended for an S2000, but the previous owner made custom bases to fit the NSX.
Wheels: Advan RG III in 17×8 +38 and 18×10 +35. I have a 3mm spacer up front, so that makes my fronts +35 The finish is “hyper black.” It’s in between a silver and black chrome type look. Very similar to the finish I have on my Model 5′s.
Tires: Falken Azenis RT-615K 215/40 and 265/35
Thanks to Touge Factory on the wheels and my sponsor Falken for another hookup on the tires! Below are some pics I found online, so thanks to the photogs who took these shots. I have been way too busy to snap pics myself, but perhaps a new shoot is in order.
Wow, it’s been almost a year since I last updated the blog but only added a few more things for this year. I ended up selling my 17/18 Advan Model 5′s and went for the larger 18/19 setup which I felt looks a bit better. The finish is a custom powdercoat which is in between gunmetal/chrome/silver.
With regards to wheel/tire sizing- I am at 18×8 +38 in front and I have a 3mm spacer. So with that said, front is +35 (Falken 253′s 215/35/18). In the rear, I am 19×10 +45, and using an additional 5mm spacer to bring me to +40. I can PROBABLY get a few more mm’s before rubbing. I might try to align my rears a bit and reduce camber. The problem is, I’m running 275/30/19 in rear which is the reason why I can’t go too aggressive in rear offsets.
Finally, you’ll notice some Downforce side splitters I added in Carbon Fiber. These were the last set they made for the 2002 side skirts, so I was pretty lucky to snag these. I’m not sure if they plan on making these again. Thanks to the Keith and Casper for these pics.
Thanks to Larry for taking some sweet pics of my NSX @ Autobahn Track in Joliet, IL. Click on each photo to get to my Flickr page, and a higher res image.
Haven’t updated the blog in awhile, but here are some 2012 updates.
Carbon 6 Super GT Mirrors in Carbon Fiber. 1 of only 13 sets ever made, with functional mirrors (retains
I decided to go with the JP Aero front lip to retain a factory-like look, with a touch of aggressiveness.
Another look of the mirrors and new lip.
Thanks Greg for this shot! These are Discontinued Advan Model 5′s. FRONT 17×8 +30 (with 15mm spacer).
This was taken at the JDMC Season Opener meet on May 5th.
Another Shot by Greg @ Automass on April 29th. Rear fitment is 18×10 +25 (with 20mm spacer).
Tires are Falken 452′s in 215/40/17 and 265/35/18.
Thanks to the folks @ Canibeat for featuring my NSX. More pics and the feature located here.
