(fuck off) #circuitsoul

odd--look.

My EF started as a plan to have a pretty basic B16 swapped Honda. I wanted to get out of a newer car that basically drives itself and into something raw to push myself in, learn in and evolve with.

Alex always wanted to make it something really special for me. He's always told me balance is the most important part of a build and life. The struggle was it would be built in Vancouver and brought home to Cali. Unlike local guys around CS, I couldn't easily come back for mods or changes as my skills improve. So he wanted it to be balanced and modular but also wild and stylish in one shot. Proper CS car.

The more we got into it the more Alex really wanted to make it something truly special, built one-off exactly for me. Wanting to offer something beyond the normal tuned car like any other swapped Honda even though my budget didn't allow for it. I was actually short on what we even originally planned but he pulled a lot of strings and still made it happen for me.
I got a solid job, saved what I was originally short on and now we're planning the end of the project and when I'm picking it up. I loved visiting Vancouver and the whole experience of it. So Alex said we should make a real trip out of it again. This time with me driving my newly finished car too!! From day 1 Alex has said he wishes I lived locally so we could put some basic suspension parts into a stock EF on sticky tires and start from there. He wanted me to experience a stock chassis and why/how modifications affect it. Wanting me to actually learn and actually improve instead of having an underused car that was too much for me that I'd be too inexperienced or scared to push. "It's better to drive a slow car fast, rather than a fast car slow"

Yesterday I found an ad for a local 3G civic and sent it to him since I know he loves them and how rare they are in Canada now. Seller needed it gone. We talked about how cool it was and what a good deal it was.
Well.. Alex told me to use the difference and buy the 3G. I picked it up last night!! As we finish up the last bits of my EF, I'm now also able to experience what an old Honda feels like in its most basic form.

Another rotten egg in the scramble. 🍳

Starlet hit the track for the first time. Threw the MIM wheels on with some used Toyo Proxes and got tons of grip. Took a couple laps before I trusted the car at its limits but it was tons of fun. Stoked to keep building the car to reflect its shortcomings and to build on its strengths. #circuitsoul #thewheelclinic #rivercitymotors

#TT goes to my old beloved EG, and EJ. ✌

The EG helped kickstart the gears that still run through my veins today. When you build, bleed, and suffer with your project car for almost a decade, you appreciate it that little more. I'm sure alot of you know what that feels like. Late nights, broke pockets, and busted knuckles was all worth the trouble. For the good times, and knowledge that I got in return is priceless.

The EJ was one of cleanest cars I've ever owned. It was my dream to own a K-swapped car (k20a2). Sacrifices had to be made to get it but I have no regrets nonetheless. You don't need big money or a Ferrari to have fun, but the smile factor that your own car gives to you.. While its running πŸ™‚. .

Took the Z out for a quick play. Still needs Low's, exhaust, paint, lip, skirts, blah, blah, blah...on the back burner until I get my bike shit sorted though!
