Strange of the history owner...
Date: LEAP OF YEAR DAY!!!

So, I have done spoils about the new car that I bought…

Yep, it’s really sad to time sell Z and Chillie after their maintenance is completed.
For Z, 466 V$ for parts and sold it for 6,000 V$, and for Chillie I can’t remember exactly the price that I spent for parts, I would say rough about 1,5230 V$, and sold for fairly price 11,000 V$.

Here what car, I have bought…? You knew this car before as on old forum thread...

Image
(Photo ~ Last seen on forum before Jimmy went disappeared.)

I found a couple of forums and the seller explains, and let me explain. Tango's number plate was matched...
About a year ago, Some people may have known that vehicle before. It was the original owner called Jimmy aka “Buzzsaw” proudly owned S2K that he named her “Tango” due to the paintwork colour. He vanished after mixing up the vehicle at scrap-yard, yes Tango did NOT crush into metal cube.

Let me explain before how it ended in the scrap yard but didn't get crushed.
Jimmy was having fun with his friend named Big Smoke and Franklin at Tsukuba Circuit for track day. Jimmy looked very excited, after fews of lapping Jimmy decided to quicker speed at T1 corner to bring quicker time but he had basically stock suspension but with Honda Integra DC5 wheel plus brake, clearly it doesn’t helped and Jimmy realised he was going too fast and diving the ditch ending of he was extremely panic and losing to recovering from driver mistaken, ending of Tango went spun out, damaged rear suspension and possible some of bumper due bumped into barrier wall.

Jimmy seen be, he didn't bother to fix the problem himself, so he sent the goods of his friend to repair Tango damage, however his worker did muddle up and take wrong S2K to scrap, which is Tango, end of going to scrap. Jimmy was alerted due he doesn’t got vehicle running, so friend forced himself to go scrapyard to tell him, it was wrong S2K.

He saw orange S2K dropped into a crusher. He was confused and told Jimmy as mis-information, but that he was last spoken to Jimmy. He discovered Tango was parked, and he tried to call Jimmy muti-time but he didn't answer. He did tell the scrapyard owner, it was the wrong S2K and it was swapped over, so Tango didn’t crush it. He decided to repair Tango to perfect condition but he tried to call Jimmy many times but the contact was lost, the police were alerted and they found out Jimmy went to a different country. Up till he finally owned Tango for a good nearly year (after Tango was repaired) without any problem and recently timing and full serviced used by Honda genuine parts then he started to sell Tango.

So, I saw an advert for a good price with a recorded salvage title S2K Imola Orange that listed price 8,500 V$...
Test driven, and inspect it, can’t complain about what's wrong with Tango..

So I bought it…?

Image

Yep, paid full price, can’t complain with that S2K, I kept her old name that Jimmy named her? Yep, I still named her Tango. It's quite a shame Jimmy muddled himself and went to another county, but it doesn’t matter because I’m now owned Tango. She doesn’t change anything, the modified, still untouchable. I'll be able to list the modified Tango that was installed.

I remember that S2000, it suffered a crash on a Tsukuba track day but looks like it was repaired properly. I still suggest to check for any damage that might not be seen from the outside. Anyway have fun with it!

The extreme of starter track vehicle.
Date: Monday 9th March 2020

Tango went seriously balls, I mean she went like wild.
Yes, Tango took balls, had a look at the side view shot to see what was different from what I bought?

Image

Since the wheel and brake from Integra DC5 Type R and that should be plenty brake power for nearly stock power figures for while, I will explain later.
The biggest change to Tango as currently upgraded is handling.

I was thinking of taking Tango to track with stock suspension, but I decided to change it before taking her to track day.
I bought;
1 ~ HKS Hipermax Max IV SP coilover from Nengun, that - 1,544 V$.
2 ~ Hardrace adjustable drop link (or Stabilizer link) as a pair - 97 V$ each.
3 ~ Eibach Sway bars / Anti-Roll Bars inc; front (32mm) and rear (29mm) adjustable sway bar and Sway Bar bushes, from Tarmac Sport - 618 V$.
4 ~ Extended (15mm taller than stock) Rear Roll Centre / Ball Joint from K-Tuned - 180 V$
5 ~ Adjustable Front Roll Centre / Ball Joint, 10mm taller than stock from K-Tuned - 300 V$
Total of suspension spent: 2,836 V$.

Image
Shiny Eibach sway bar...

Image
Loving with HKS coilover, just like KW coilover but more JDM bite.

Image
Perfect ride height and fitment...

All of them of the listed on Tango, damn she looks SO GOOD! Perfect height and completed 4 wheel alignment, now she is all adjusted and perfectly for track set up. I’m very sure the suspension changed made her handle like a rail and it could be much more stabilized round the corner as it gains more speed than stock could do. I replaced all roll centres because I discovered the rear right side has small free play so I replaced all them to K-Tuned one, that should have helped my handling since she was lowered.

Move on, something different changed Tango, and second biggest change was coolant. They are very important for track day vehicles, you could likely be high-revving and bangin the red line and raising the OEM coolant temperature much more, it may not be good for track. My old radiator was about 1 year old but still I would replace it with a performance one. I decided to hope on the website call Nengun and bought Spoon coolant parts;

1 ~ Thermostat (allowed open 68 degree than 78 degree) - 69 V$
2 ~ Thermo Switch (allowing turn on fan at 80 degree than 90 degree) - 46 V$
3 ~ Radiator Hose set ~ 225 V$
3 ~ Aluminium Radiator ~ 1,174 V$
Total of Spoon coolants spent ~ 1,174 V$

Image

As we know suspension and coolant has changed as they are important for track, however you may notice randomly carbon and grey bumper, I was bored…
I found them from Facebook marketplace, it has a proper real carbon front splitter, and proper good quality plastic canards on prime coated AP2 front bumper, and it’s inc; AP2 splash guard, grill and H badge and it was barely used, I pay 650 V$, no brainer deal! It does look so good and more track vehicle looking, now I need an address with a side skirt and rear bumper, plus a spoiler before it will be repainted to Imola Orange. I have to cut the bit bumper frame to fit AP2 bumper on AP1 chassis.

Image
Image

That all completed progress Tango modified…
That hasn't ended yet! Just explain briefly why...

You was thinking, why I didn’t make Chillie track vehicle then Tango become track vehicle?
The main reason is, Chillie has a really good condition and she is quite a bit rare. I was too scared to wreck her by driver error, so I sold it so I bought Tango. It doesn’t matter if I was mistaken and end of a small damaged Tango, and most parts are pretty easy to buy, plus you can’t forget F20 is much more reliable than SR20 does, I know it loses turbo but it doesn't matter.

Mainly the reason I kept DC5 brembo brake?
I want to save a bit of money so I can change the engine. I want to use the F engine later model, known as F22 engine. I could use that engine for more cylinder capacity but I would lose the famous 9K RPM, but I would try to work out to use F22 without losing 9k RPM. Imagine, you were hearing an F22 engine that has an ITB roar sound of 9K rpm. Once that engine is completed then I’ll move on brake upgrade.

Stay tuned for special guests that came from Italy upcoming, don't worry she is cleared coronavirus so I won't not to died.

The new family member...
Date: Sunday 15th March 2020

Lately I have been kept very secret since I owned Chillie, a guest vehicle. Cannot tell “who”, sorry, till end of topic.
She is paying for everything for her car to be legal in Japan.
Her car was…

*drum roll*

It’s 2014 Fiat 500 Lounge (don’t ask me why! Fiat chose it as the trim version!), only twice owner. It was her nan car since it was new however the health problem forced her to sell her beloved 500, so it was passed to her grand-daughter as a gift for passed university application.

Under the hood of the heart 500, you would likely see 1.2 8V petrol engine production 69 horsepower, flat out of top speed 99 mph. Engine was kept very well maintained, and kept used genuine Fiat parts plus service since it was new. I swore to the lord, I can’t freaking understand italian language in the car manual book!

Interior and exterior condition wise, her nan love retro style exterior looking, chrome mirror, chrome handle and other chrome details, perfect retro look! I was fairly impressed, body work was in great condition, barely ding and dent. The interior was super cleaned and it was seen very seriously looking after, even though it's never been smoke.
I quite liking the key cover, giving Italy style looking...

Image
Image
Image
Image

Well, did I make the Fiat 500 to become Japanese road legal?
Yes, I was inspection before sent off to inspection for register on the road
I have been checking bottom to top, I replaced the clutch, both side front lower arm, new discs and pads, serviced, all fluid flush and refill, and new front wheel bearings, all parts and fluids was using Fiat genuine. Funny is, my girlfriend told me, mostly her garage quoted her for a new tracking rod end, because the steering wheel was wobbly, turn out tracking rod was fine, nothing wrong. It’s wheel bearing, worned out case making weird noise and wobbling the steering wheel. The clutch and lower arm were replaced because they’re common faults so I replaced it for peace of mind.

Passed the test without problem, now it's legal on Japanese!

Well, you’re asking about “Who is “She” or “guest”?''.
It’s my girlfriend!

Her name is Angelina “Angel” Marino, 2 years younger than me. She was a big fan of animes, yep she is very much a weebie. Her lifetime goal was to move to Japan and living there, and she just did it. I taught her Japanese language for 4 years as following where being of relationship. She is great looking, and fairly kind.Her dream job is to be a nurse at Japanese Hospital. She made progressing her dream job nicely, just needed to pass Japanese and nurse course in order to become a nurse. Of course she will take driving school that can get Japanese driving license, because it is illegal to use Italian driving license on japanese roads, if you’re living permanently.

Yep, not kidding mate, she just landed it. I drove the Fiat 500, not my Tango, I promised her I would pick her up with her Fiat 500. She saw me and her beloved Fiat 500. She said “Blondie! I missed you!” I was reaction myself and thinking myself “Who the fuck is Blondie? I’m male dude with black hair?”, and I just remembered, she was named her 500 “Blondie“ because of colour. We arrived at my crib, and we were pretty tired. Next day, I made a special present. I have the spare room at my house that is barely used, I converted to a perfect anime hangout spot and watch anime stuff plus it’s where there are collections of anime figures, posters, etc. She LOVED it, just like her dream room. I’m very good boyfriend. :D

Funny enough, her personally reminded me about the Umaru-chan character because she looks totally human but when she is at home, she becomes a different human, doing anime stuff. :lol:

Before ending this topic.
She does have a planned makeover for her 500. She wants to de-chrome it, body kit, lower it, new wheel and dual exhaust system.

Fancy Shoes.
Date: Wednesday 18th March 2020

Finally, long delayed from the wheel refurbing shop, now it was completed!
The wheel should be completed around the same suspension update on the forum, which is it on 9th March, however it was delayed due equipment at shop was broken, so it was delayed.

The wheel that I bought was fairly cheap, 1,000 V$ for a set of 4 17 inches rim with badly worn mixed brand tyres. The wheel was called Volks Racing TE37 MAG. The rim condition wasn’t great, more like the worst condition. Most rim have heavy kerb damage, thick layer of really bright pink paints with purple with silver glitters splatter, it was awful paint job EVER I seen! The wheels were originally fitted from S2000. Their wheel width set up was 225 at front and 255 at rear. I have the right to refuse a fitted Tango, orange paint with bright ass pink wheels, no thank you.

I sent all 4 wheels without tyre to the shop, all old tyres were recycled due they are fairly old and unevenly worn plus they are kinda cheap. The shop will strip all paint off, repair it, and make it look new again. I choose a colour that goes to dark grey, like gun metal colour.

After a long delay, it is here! 4 wheels fully refurbs, it looks brand new. Money went well spent, is it, I’m only paid 340 V$ for wheel refurbishment.
All wheels now painted gun metal grey, it looks proper rim, quite I like it with that colour, since Tango will be track vehicle so she need proper grippy tyres so I bought;
Yokohama Advan Neova AD08
Front ~ 225/45 R17 - 390 V$
Rear ~ 255/40 R17 - 434 V$
Total - 629 V$

So here it is!

Image
Image
Orange with gun metal wheel, it look suit so well.

Image
Damn, girl you have thicc tyres!

Most people recommend 225/45 at front and 255/40 at rear, as they are both 17 inch wheels, so I follow their advice, not just lighter wheel, also it gives much more gripper performance than OEM wheel does. The OEM DC5 Type R wheel was 215 all around. Rear should be 225 from factory spec but it does loose rear grip, I was stunned myself, no why Jimmy spun out his S2000 so easy because it was incorrectly wheel width at rear, the rookie mistakes are made, but new wheel is fitted so it should be fixed that problem.

And, finally one more mod to show you guys…
The fact story.

I was about 15 years old, it’s my nearly birthday, my mother was gone to work, and I found her bank card, so she left her bank card at home. I was bored myself and stroll across the eBay, I found a really cool steering wheel. It's a MOMO steering wheel with suede deep dish with Honda horn button, so I ordered via my mum bank card. Later that day, my mum discovered most of the money was gone to her bank account, she was extremely furious, and I got grounded for a month plus no birthday present. At 19 years old, about to move to living in my own house (since my girlfriend is in Italy), my mum shown me Momo steering wheel that same that I ordered at I was 15 years old, she said “Do you thinking, you was 15 years old, and you got no present from me? This thing is your, daring. Happy late 15th birthday...” I cried happily and hugged her, and it has been on the wall ever since till now as I’m 24 years old...

Tango is a Honda, so why not fit it, plus its bonus for track style?
I have to order a MOMO hub for MOMO steering wheel, which cost me 95 V $. It's nice having suede instead of an OEM leather steering wheel, it won’t slip when my hand is sweating on the leather, also I create loop wire from the airbag plug so it means no airbag warning light on my cluster.

Image

It pretty much ticks everything off my list, but only final to do is; Bucket seat and rear downforce, before it’s time to my first track day! I was originally to do a short shifter but there is a lack of aftermarket available so I have to scrapped off, and people saying S2000 was pretty good shifting as if it was an OEM.

I was test driving with a new wheel and suspension change on the Tango, me and my girlfriend went shopping. She was very curious about how Tango drives. Oh SWEET JESUS! She had a totally different vehicle, very driveable and fairly quite grippy actions, nothing I felt slippy whilst around the corner. Oh man, I’m very excited to go track for full speed action.

The Honda horn button it's a fine touch and I like it!

Layin Low.
Date: Saturday 21th March 2020

Nothing about something new, unfortunately.

It is just the update about the coronavirus outbreak.
Me and my girlfriend having proper talk about coronavirus, plus my work place was locked down after my boss was tested positive, fortunately I was all fine however some of the workers have been spreaded from the boss, some them were testing in progress or postived, therefore the garage company was forced lockdown.

Me and her got all agreed, I would slow down the modified Tango till coronavirus became less spreading, so my girlfriend won’t be worried too much having outside for a while, plus the parts could be risked with the virus infection, and mostly important I have to takes cared my mum, she have life-time lung problem. She just moved to my house so I can take care of her easily, because we worried about her health problem against coronavirus, which could have killed her since she was a fairly vulnerable person, thankfully I have a girlfriend with me for extra hand.

Well, it’s sad to see I've started to slow down the modification of Tango, I won’t be likely to use Tango for a while, till coronavirus stops spreading.

Stay safe, out there people…
I could see you 3 or 4 month later, depends how doing with coronavirus.

Lowlife scumbag stole Tango! Yes, she stolen cleanly, I was left roof down that why there nothing broken glass anywhere.
Fuck sake, my belove and I has good hope to give her new life, but she is nicked. Funny is I have only one key left...

So, I wrote down mostly online media, like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Police was contacted and they now investigating progress.

Here what I wrote during all social media as I could...
!! STOLEN MOTOR FROM OSAKA, JAPAN AREA !!

2001 Honda S2000 AP1 Imola Orange, stolen from my house during overnight.
Police was contacted and they are currently progressing of the investigating.
Witness statement seen 3 masked mens exited blacken out Merc SUV without number plate, but later on she heared loud exhaust nosie and she was look out again then she noticed two vehicle (One is Merc and other is S2000) was left the scene.
It was modified, lowered suspension, some exterior aero changed, VOLKS Racing wheel gunmetal wheel and deep dish steering wheel.

Image
Currently modified looks.
Image
Sorry that photo was before I modifieded it.

Currently interior.

If you seen that vehicle, please contact to police ASPS.
I'm gutted seeing my beloved motor nicked, I hoped she is found and safe.
I'm pray to god, and my GF car is all good, don't worry about her car.

Hey dude, the car was found in Osaka. Marcus found it.
It was pretty fucked, the front end is pretty much gone
They stole the papers, and the police checked the vin number, shaken and insurance were expired (expired about two weeks iirc, maybe u didn't get them up to date because of quarantine)
So, idk what you will do, you will not get a check because the insurance and shaken were expired, and the papers were stolen.
Probably the car will be or sold for parts, or just scrapped.

So yeah, next time you should get all of the stuff up to date.
Poor s2k.

I still see the photos and it's real sad, damn
Also they stole the papers of the car, so now is only for a parts car.
And some insurance doesn't make auto payments, or that's what i can think, maybe u forgot to pay it via internet
And even if the insurance was up to date, if the shaken is expired is the same shit, so yeah, the shaken was the main problem
So i suggest u that u part it out, or maybe sell it as a parts car, or try to get the papers so u can sell it as a fixeable car.

At least with that u can get idk, 5k? At least is something.
