Eibach ’13: Part Two

Words by Matt Willis

Continuing from Part One, where we left off with a very iconic NSX build…

_MG_1302

_MG_1309

Awesome lineup. Left to right: Mike Mao’s NSX, the Limitless Society S2000, Fast Autoworks NSX, and the Bulletproof S2000.

_MG_6354

As the day progressed, the line to get into the lot grew along with it. Insane how many people showed up to see the cars…

_MG_6251

Although it’s nothing too extravagant, I still liked this UKDM-themed DC.

_MG_6236

Beautiful EG on custom-colored 949 6UL wheels.

_MG_6246

Never took interest in the BYS rear spoilers for these, but I think it fits the car.

_MG_6244

Pair of Bride Low Max’s, Takata Harnesses…

_MG_6237

…Not to mention a nice B-series setup.

_MG_6262

Clean Spoon-themed EK…

_MG_6260

_MG_6271

One of my favorite cars to see at Eibach nearly every year is this Electron Blue EM1.

_MG_6265

The engine bay is pretty much what you would see if you opened a Spoon catalog up. If Spoon made it for this chassis, it’s probably in this bay…

_MG_6269

The interior is also very well done. Loving the seats…

_MG_6277

I’ve seen this EK at EAF and a couple other events, it’s coming along nicely but there are still a few things that need to be refined. The wheel/tire fitment seems a bit out of place and I can’t tell if I’m looking at it wrong or if the paint looks a bit uneven. I love the motor setup though and hope to see this car continue to build up…

_MG_6278

_MG_1314

I wouldn’t call it an EM2 anymore, but that’s what this car from Drag Cartel seems to look like…

_MG_1331

Haven’t seen this EM1 in a while. Love the color, I think it’s very unique. The wheel sizing is not my taste, but I think it works with the car.

_MG_1329

_MG_1337

Desmond Wheel on the iconic Phase2 TSX…

_MG_6284

I remember seeing this hatch at Eibach last year, and I simply love it.

_MG_6280

The engine bay could use a little tidying up, but other than that it’s pristine…

_MG_1366

_MG_6288

Nice DC2-R…

_MG_1388

_MG_6296

There’s always a couple insane bays at Eibach…this was one of them…

_MG_6309

Here’s another bay from one of Jerry Built’s drag cars…

_MG_6311

…and another Jerry-build; this one a K-series with crazy ITBs…

_MG_6315

I liked this 8th gen coupe. Looks like a mild road race build (not sure how much track time it’s seen, if at all). Normally you don’t see these done up too often…

_MG_6322

Bride Low Max and extended shifter on-board…

_MG_6333

Nice turbo B with an interesting coating on the valve cover…

_MG_6336

Toriano Thomas’s GSR that we saw at Eibach last year. Love the cleanliness and simplicity of his DC2 build…

_MG_1341

Not too often you see an RL build…especially like this…

_MG_1349

Pair of 6th-generation Civic track builds from Final Speed…

_MG_1355

Lowered first-generation CR-V….

_MG_1361

Aggressive S2000…

_MG_1370

PGK S2000…

_MG_1371

DPK EJ1…

_MG_1372

Mugen-themed S2000…

_MG_1376

I’ve seen this S2000 on the show circuit for a while now and, though I think it’s very nice, something about it just doesn’t flow for me…

_MG_1382

Eddy Tran’s turbo four-door that we’ve featured on the site a few times now

_MG_1387

_MG_1393

Nice red DC with a JDM front end.

_MG_6409

Tim and I always love seeing the Loi-Spec builds, whether they are sitting in a parking lot or tearing it up at the track.

_MG_1398

I’ve never been a fan of the DB8s, but this one just has a totally different flavor.

_MG_1399

_MG_6410

Awesome DC2 with MF-10s and a gen-2 Mugen wing…

_MG_6346

Mike G’s “EG6 Tank” build that we haven’t seen in a while.

_MG_6199

Still looking amazing under the hood.

_MG_1401

Nicely done VIP TSX…

_MG_1404

Unique color on this DC.

_MG_1410

Points for the color and body; otherwise…not feeling it at all.

_MG_6384

_MG_1412

Joey Lee from the Chronicles… brought his new-old Odyssey out. Be sure to check out his extensive Eibach coverage…

_MG_6361

Old Mugen-inspired CRX…

_MG_6359

_MG_6373

Really extravagant Element…

_MG_6370

_MG_6376

Nice and simple EK on bronze SE37Ks…

_MG_6381

_MG_6382

_MG_6383

Couple of clean late-model Accords…

_MG_6420

At the Norm Reeves Honda booth, there was a crew busy preparing a K-series for this DC2…

_MG_6411

They had the tranny apart and everything…

_MG_6414

_MG_6439

Perhaps one of the most popular builds at Eibach this year was the Rywire Civic EA-T. Simply amazing…

_MG_6434

Love the wing…

_MG_6433

_MG_6427

_MG_6429

_MG_6441

_MG_6449

We wrapped things up in the early afternoon as we had to get back down to San Diego.

_MG_6454

This DC was moved front-and-center later on and was getting all kinds of attention.

_MG_1413

Drag CRX from Whitfield Mfg getting pulled off its trailer…

_MG_6459

As we headed out, this was what the GA lot looked like after just a few hours from opening. Crazy!

Overall, it was a great turnout and I think the venue/organization was improved from last year. It’s awesome to see the scene still alive and well, and to get out and see the faces and builds we don’t normally run into during the rest of the year. As I mentioned, Tim and I are still Honda owners and I think regardless of whether that changes, this community will always be a part of us.

Looking forward to attending again next year. Eibach — thanks for having us!

– Matt
