Hello EK9 users! My name is Chris and here is my ride! I would like to share my build to all Honda enthusiasts
60989029_107140540536758_6778768585746546688_n.jpg

Day 1 when I got my RSX-S. Canadian model. I used to live Vancouver (Canada) over 10 years and this was my last day to move to different area and country. I decided to move to United States and Arizona was quite cheapest state compared to others. But I found out that summer time over here in Arizona.... it's crazy..lol Oh well so this picture explains friend of mine did Brand new K20A ITR engine & transmission we swapped. After few tested, we decided to give "GREEN LIGHT" and I started driving down to Canada to U.S

Then, I arrived to Arizona and took me 3 days to get down here because of snow over at Oregon state and I made a rookie mistake that I didn't check my tires lol it wrapped with Yokohama S drive tires in December lol Oh well I survived lol. (Truth is that I got stuck at somewhere between Oregon and California area for 1 day because of snow lol Shhhhh). Anyways, I stopped at local Honda dealership and do oil changes (brake, clutch, engine, transmission with OEM fluids)

So, here and there, I found my own apartment and applied aviation program at Arizona State University. At the same time, I finally can start collecting parts that I wanted for so long time. I always had ITR DC2s and wanted to move to different chassis since I sold my last ITR 96 spec with 98 conversions. I purchased most of major parts through Nemo's Garage (AKA Art of Attack) and GarageFive performance in Canada. Purchased C west front bumper, canards, J's Racing 1600mm GT wing, Voltex 290mm S2000 wing stands and so on.

I swapped out Advan RG 17x8.5 +31 white wheels and ready to go do paint (NH0) Championship white.
61136101_107140780536734_633684383999459328_n.jpg

Last day for Satin Silver metallic color.. Don't get me wrong! I still love this color but it's just so hard to do paint match and I wasn't very happy with most of painter here and their prices were ridiculous.
61063807_107140973870048_7542352911288762368_o.jpg

I finally got my car back from the bodyshop and also gave them a J's Racing front wide fender. Tbh, fender fitments were very shxx because I had to use 5 washers to flush out on right bottom panels but oh well it is what it is and I don't want to wait for this again. I also sold my red Recaro and picked another black recaro seats with Feel's super low down rails.

Here is just a rolling shot with drone. Oh! I forgot to mention that I put Sparco seat at that time too!

The only lake, river, ocean whatever you wanna call it, I would just say water spot was 1 mile away from my house so I decided to stop by and check out urban area.
61093226_107141253870020_1718862700886360064_n.jpg

Oh my god... I promised myself that no more DC2 for now... but smh.. I picked this up again and did K20Z3 swapped.
60966287_107143763869769_326563620693475328_n.jpg

I got bored and did some livery racing theme and went to the local circuit event. It handled really well and noticed that DC5 is way too much heavier than DC2 so I decided to do some weight reductions. That was my main goal at that point and started on Fall season because.. again... it's Arizona... summer time is crazy here.
61114569_107141543869991_6675757115161706496_n.jpg

Another fun time. After this circuit event, my Tein coilover shocks were done so I contacted many people in Japan and got some helped.

61172124_107143893869756_3652065401082216448_n.jpg

I had blast time with this car and so much fun!
61205621_107143953869750_4185791937460043776_n.jpg

Year later, I talked to my good old friend from M&M Honda and decided to do their widebody kit. I was the one of person actually saw the prototype when I visited them very long time ago and I didn't know they were actually made this happen. Oh well so I sold some parts and put OEM fenders but same day.. I got an accident. Some shithead cut me off immediately and hit brake so hard middle of the freeway and I cannot stop... I was super pissed but gotta move on

So several months later, I decided to put M&M Hyperbody kit on my DC5. I had to change couple things here and there such as tires, wheels, suspension setting, and others.
61409534_107144050536407_4781852974882226176_n.jpg

After cut and buff from the paint shop, I went to Eibach California Honda meet! Met many Honda enthusiasts and talked so many people. It was a great day! Got this picture from Superstreet!
61077027_107144093869736_3953903122685886464_n.jpg

Then, I got little attention from Joey from Stickydiljoe!
61442484_107144183869727_2175949226654040064_n.jpg

After event, my friends and I drove back to Arizona.. took me 8 hours due to my back problem.. (stiff springs...)
61172581_107144233869722_1984780103460061184_n.jpg

TGIF everyone! went to the local car meet.
61047481_107144450536367_7281968470269362176_n.jpg

Then I stopped to my paint shop and got this wing endplate from Anointed aero custom made!
61083045_107144257203053_8265968485922766848_n.jpg


After year and half later, my Voltex GT wing showed up through DHL over night shipping. Nakajima told me that he was very busy building Tilton's aero package at that time and couldn't take or make any orders so I'm pretty sure that people who ordered their voltex parts at that time, probably took more than 6 months.. I got type 7.5 model and proud of world 1st official DC5 swan neck application!

My 96spec ITR with K20Z3 engine.. unfortunately this car got stolen from some fxxxxxx thief. I chased this guy's axx and found him and put him in prison for 4 years lol (true story...) Took me 4 months to find. I got recovered most parts from local police but except spoon seat and shell. Oh well... move on.
61085430_107151433869002_2012124248973246464_n.jpg

Long story short, my buddyclub seat rail failed on me while I was at circuit. I almost crashed my car into the wall. While I was turning steep corner, seat rail just accidentally goes all the way back and can't adjust rail mechanism..... This never happened to me and oh well so I decided to purchase PCI seat rail. this rail is super heavy but it works damn good!
72763277_150083342909144_107738829418397696_o.jpg

Then several months later, me and my friend decided to design new front splitter on DC5 and this works amazing compared to other one. Of course you cannot see the tunnel on my splitter but tunnels are there lol

That's had some serious coin spent on it. Fair play, looks sick!

I did that TL;DR thing and just looked at the photos, but this is awesome.

I assume where you say circuit racing you are doing Time Attack of some sort with all that aero?
