Yeah, its somethin I wasn't plannin on doin and it just kinda happened. Finally got used to drivin it and figurin out the shift spots and all. Actually gonna be teachin my cousin how to drive a stick with it. Its the easiest stick shift thats around. All the others are either race clutches or older ones in a muscle car.

Well got some stuff to figure out. Drove it the other day with the AC on and it stalled 3 times rolling up when I was slowing down to stop. It was nothing I did cause it caught me off guard each time it happened so looking into that tomorrow.

And I can't get over how quick it is. I know its not a good thing to race, and I normally don't but man messing with hondas and stuff are fun. They don't realize that mines the S/R so they think they can walk on me. Walked an Integra bad on the way to work just cause I could. But got to get that out of my system, seeing as I'm the only bright yellow ZX2 in my county let alone around where I live.

I'll agree driving dumb isn't good in a bright yellow car. Blue is a much better choince 8-)

Not hard to miss it.

But on another note hopefully my sound system goes in the week, and maybe tint the windows.

Ok, so I'm def new at this next little bit. Alright since I have the '00 ZX2 S/R, my valve cover doesn't have the spark plug cover. So I'm wondering if anyone knows if the other valve cover that came on some ZX2's that can fit the spark plug cover will work on mine? The blue on mine is nice and all but its time to change it up a bit. Thinking yellow like the car and a carbon fiber cover.

wow polishing must've taken all day. I've stripped a few of mine and powdercoated them(I have like 5 at all times) and the casting is too rough for candy powders, they must be sanded a good bit first.

I had to laugh at a guy today. Pulled up to a place to get some lunch and he was lookin at my car when I got out and was talkin about the color. Got talkin about it so while we were waiting on our lunches, we walked outside and he wanted to look at my car more. He drove a '00 model Accord V6 which looked good. And I really had to laugh when I popped the hood on my car and the dude went nuts when he looked at it. Didn't believe me when I said I had a 4 Cylinder, he swore up and down it was a V6. Even though I told him it was the S/R and came with everything stock! Asked me what all I did to it and flipped when I said nothing and that it was all factory mods. We talked a little bit more then and he asked his buddy if he thought his car could take mine or not. Oddly his buddy was puttin money towards my car, no we did race. His mouth hit the floor though when I told him I've out ran a Cadi, and some other Hondas without even trying. So I think he might try to run me one day on the interstate but who knows. Just thought it was funny to see someone flip out over a stock ZX2.

Just thought I'd share that, thats a new one for me lol :mrgreen:

Sounds like a good time. With this you will shock people with the zx2 sadly. Some people will hate it and others will be amazed by it. Yet this is with any kind of car. Glad your enjoying it more and more each day.

Random question.... whats the easiest way to change the bulbs for the headlights? Last I looked, seemed like it was going to take a little bit of work to do it. Got some HIDs for my brother awhile back and he never used them, and they just so happen to fit my car so now I'm going to use them. And then get some HIDs for the fogs too. If I can find any
