Both Coasts

Super Street - - HOLE SHOT -

For 2018, both sides of the map saw more at­ten­dees, more so­cial me­dia at­ten­tion, and a new ad­di­tion to the itin­er­ary with track in­te­gra­tion. In Cal­i­for­nia, the num­ber of reg­is­tered cars eclipsed the 1,100 mark, with more than 40 ven­dors, new and old, sup­port­ing the event, and that in­cludes ti­tle spon­sor and tire giant Falken. In an ef­fort to open the event to an of­ten-ne­glected group, the en­tire show was moved to Fon­tana’s fa­mous drag­way, and ac­cess to the track was granted to any­one want­ing to take a rip down the quar­ter-mile. Sim­i­larly, the South­east stop saw a track day in­cluded, which stretched the event into a two-day af­fair. ››This S2000, spot­ted in Florida, sports a su­per­charger and an ar­ray of cov­ers to hide the fac­tory bat­tery and fuse box, ABS, and brake booster.

››Honda’s flag­ship al­ways makes an ap­pear­ance at the an­nual Eibach Meet, and this year was no dif­fer­ent—on both coasts. From the South­east, this Emo­tion NSX was fit­ted with a Spoon bumper, Vol­tex wing, and re­worked Mu­gen MF10S.

››Parked next to the King Mo­tor­sports booth, this AP1 duo wore var­i­ous Mu­gen bits but didn’t stray far from the classic lines of Honda’s cel­e­brated road­ster.››Like any re­gion in the U.S., tucked and shaved bays have be­come the norm. How­ever, not all of them have the at­ten­tion to de­tail and over­all ex­e­cu­tion this K-swapped EJ Civic hatch does.

››Honda Tun­ing alum­nus Ja­son Hast­ings gave his GS-R’S en­gine bay a sub­stan­tial makeover. Stay­ing with the trusted B-se­ries, he switched to an ITB setup sur­rounded by filled and smoothed sheet­metal.

››S2000 builds came out in droves to both coasts’ events. This ex­am­ple, from the Socal stop, rep­re­sented Greddy Per­for­mance and fea­tured their newly re­vamped bolt-on turbo kit.

››An ad­di­tional day was added to the Florida Eibach Meet itin­er­ary for those in­ter­ested in tak­ing part and con­sisted of a full track day at The Florida In­ter­na­tional Rally and Mo­tor­sports Park.

››While in Fon­tana, a mild lip kit and split­ter setup along with a Back­yard Spe­cial wing and vented hood on this NSX made for a sleek buildup.
