looks like u got urself a nice track toy there.

One thing tho, i would rattle can the whole thing black, a: it will look better b: it will cost less to make any touchups if you have an encounter on the track.

i think lowered and 15's will help looks and trackability, pics when there on~!!!

well, reverse advan livery!!



Looks good btw, i think try spraying the mesh in the front bumper black, might look cleaner.

wheels suit it though

not updated this for ages either
did a few things to the car last year,
i fitted the akimoto intake i got off duayne (sp)



then last year on the way to getting some tyres swapped over it blew the balance shaft seal and emptied all the oil out in a matter of seconds
worked carried out was:
Timing belt kit
balance shaft belt kit
balance shaft seal kit & retainer
Auto Tensioner
Water Pump
swapped the alternator belt for the non. aircon version
so i can remove the aircon too, which i still aint got round to doing

i've swapped the rotas with the accord for the dc2 wheels aswell
for a couple of reasons the main being that i've been using the accord all through the winter and the ludes been SORN'd and a couple of the tyres on the dc2 wheels were bald so i swapped them over as a cheap alternative to buying new tyres. the other reason being that the dc2's are lighter than the rotas so will be better for track, and i got a set of toyo r888's that i'm put on them too.

and i picked this up the other day, probably the best brace out for the lude and rare as rocking horse poop




and to end some random pic whoreage from shakeys last year Cool
