Eibach Honda Meet 2011: Part Three

Final bit of coverage for Eibach 2011. Sorry for the delay – the last part of this week has been crazy, not to mention the on-and-off migraines I’ve been getting have been shutting me down. Anyways, on to the pics…

IMG_0309
Back at the entrance, we saw this retro Mazda RX-2 rolling in…don’t think I’ve ever seen one in person…

IMG_0299
Clean IS-300…

IMG_0330
Love 90s bikes. This guy is having fun on a Yamaha YSR, in it’s factory color scheme…not sure of the year but its the smallest cc, I know that for sure!

IMG_0317
Only got a glimpse of this simple EG, but it had a full SiR-S interior.

IMG_0317
96-spec hatchback “SiR” heading out. Its always nice to 96-98 Civics rather than all 99-00…

IMG_0317
Beautiful red Integra with JDM front end…

IMG_0317
Tim’s EF 35mm L, with an amazing 1.4 f-stop. Several of these pics were taken with it (the ones with incredible amount of depth…haha).

Back up in the Eibach parking lot, cars from this morning began heading out. Likewise, some cars were still rolling in.

IMG_0354
Official J’s Racing Integra, equipped with a B-series, was running the circuits when I was still just a kid. It is on the cover of the latest Honda Tuning issue – apparently this was on display back in Japan and they imported it to the US, “as-is”. Incredible car.

IMG_0356
Fully-fabricated race dash…look at that prehistoric racing meter! Must have been cutting-edge a little over a decade ago…

IMG_0383
NA1 NSX…I don’t know why this person would rather be driving a CRX…

IMG_0397

IMG_0384
I loved this Integra. Next to SW388s, silver Regamaster Evo’s are one of my favorite wheels made by Desmond. Yes, I know they are essentially the same..haha…I just like the design I guess…

IMG_0385
…here’s the interior. Notice the fitted gauge pods where the clock usually goes…

IMG_0388
Had to grab another Mugen MF-10 shot…

IMG_0393
Spotted another 96-spec build. Love it!

IMG_0394

IMG_0395
Great-looking bay. Mild wire tuck with Rywire harness…

IMG_0400

IMG_0402
Another NSX, this one blue…and supercharged…

IMG_0404

IMG_0405

IMG_0409
I saw this car last year as well…fully Spoon’d from top-to-bottom. Pretty much a mirror image of the 99-00 bay from the Spoon catalog:

IMG_0411
This car was also running some beefy rotors and silver Regamasters…

IMG_0413

IMG_0414
Here’s a part that’s becoming a rare sight these days…the ARC panel air cleaner, combined with the even rarer ARC intake elbow and couplers. Definitely a great addition.

IMG_0417
F22…with an interesting strut tower bar I’ve never seen before…

IMG_0432
This build is on its way, but you can tell there were some unfinished spots…the framework for the JDM front end needs to be finished, and, though I could really care less about wire tucks, a bit of organization in the engine bay wouldn’t hurt.

IMG_0439
Simple and refreshing RSX Type S on Enkei RPF01s…

IMG_0442

IMG_0444
Love this Type R. Looks like something straight out of Best Motoring.

IMG_0449
Here’s a closeup of those Denji headlamps that I posted in part one.

As we made our way around the back side for a final time, we laid our eyes upon this work of art. Turbo K-powered drag car with all the custom wiring and fabrication you could imagine. Notice the panel for the oil lines in the lower right, the coolant overflow in the lower left, MSD ignition coils, custom shorty exhaust with per-cylinder monitored O2 sensors, oh yeah…and that huge-ass turbo. Such an awe-inspiring build.

IMG_0460
Big enough for you?

IMG_0467
TSX with the Euro headlamp housings. I love the crystal blue accent where on our US models, it’s normally amber…

IMG_0471
Caught this CRX on my way out…

IMG_0478
…and this J’s Racing TSX Euro R.

IMG_0485
Tim and Tony discussing nuclear physics…or something…

IMG_0489
At this point a lot of cars were leaving, and although we knew more cars would be rolling through that we’d miss, we decided to head out. This Integra caught my eye at the gate.

IMG_0497
…Tim grabbing some last minute shots at the gate.

IMG_0504
Cops directing traffic along Mariah Circle…

IMG_0508
S2000 CR as we were leaving…

And, with that, Eibach 2011 is in the books…another great meet with the best-of-the-best cars. Like always, its cool to see new up-and-coming builds and to be assured that the scene is always changing, and I think Eibach does just that. It shows us, the Honda community, that the people, industry, cars, and visions of perfection are constantly changing. Now that we’ve made it past the alleged rapture of May 21st, I guess we can count on seeing everyone at Eibach 2012 next year, around the same date. Already looking forward to it.

I’ll leave you guys with another pro wheel shot from Tim (with yet another Spoon caliper, haha):

See you around!
