Exiged!

15 Sep

Ok, so it’s only in a video game, but here are the photos of the Exige we built in Forza2…

After a couple hours of playing with the suspension and gear ratios, this thing pulls and handles like a LeMans car. Now to bash on the online racers of the Forza community 🙂 Lotus has long been known for making the most of a powertrain with lightweight platforms.

The Exige also inspired this K20A powered, turbocharged CRX. K-swaps are hugely popular for older Honda’s as companies like Hasport make the job a breeze with their motor mounts/adapters. The K-series motors themselves (namely from the RSX-S) are plentiful, have unlimited aftermarket support and boast impressive stock power and a stout block. Plus, they aren’t very expensive!

Right now, this 600hp CRX pulls VERY hard in all 5 forward gears all the way to 180mph but I’m having some trouble finding the right settings for suspension/LSD. All in good time… Some may think it’s a bit lame, but I think tinkering with this stuff in Forza2 is a BLAST!

Eibach Springs for R35 GTR

15 Sep

Just got word about the release of the Eibach Pro Kit for the 2008 + GTR.  These springs lower the car .8 inches up front, .5 inches out back, and were specifically tuned around the stock Bilstein Dampers.   The result is a clean, even stance, and lower center of gravity.  Springs are progressively wound, allowing them to retain a near OEM ride quality during day to day driving, but as the suspension compresses, they firm up to improve handling.
