VSM Type R

Finally I'm back in a Honda. After having a Mazda3 mps for 6 months I was getting bored with the point and shoot turbo power and the poor body roll the car had. I had a look round for a replacement and this is what I got, it ticked all the boxes.

Awesome! Silver is one of those forgotten about FN2 colours. I loved my silver FN2

I have already fitted some pro race 1.2's with Yoko AD08's and updated the headlight bulbs.



Other bits I've got ordered are:-



Tegiwa air box carbon


15mm springs


Service pack using the panel filter for now in the standard box

My best buy and can't wait to recive

I have bought them in silver though wanted to be different

Car will be booked into TDI North in the new year to have the bits fitted plus mapped on a flashpro and FRSU

How do find the airbox is it loud plus have you got the bumper intake triangles?

Mate, I'm thinking of putting these AD08's on my EK, what can you tell from your experience with them?
I know they are quite nice on dry tarmac, but what can you say about the wet perfomance?

out of the box i found them to be very twitchy, but after a few miles ( especially hot ones ) I think they are epic in all but vvvv cold conditions. The confidence they inspire is brilliant and when you do push them too far its very linear and progressive.

they seem to be very dependant on pressures though, a few psi either way makes all the difference.

Would i buy them again.......in a heartbeat

Like said above once the Tyres are scrubbed in there really good especially in the dry once warm. Even in the wet as there directional they grip just not so good at standing water.



These tyres were my second chose as I had fedral RSR's on my ek9 and found them really good allround but hard to get hold of in 18" pic below (custom colour TE37's light as a feather)

Thanks guys! I was afraid that they would have no grip at all in the wet , but now I'm relieved!
