iM Feature: Jamie’s Honda S2000 v2.0

If you are new or fairly familiar to the car scene, you probably already know that you could break the scene down into two main groups. There is the group that represent the “Performance” side of things, and the group that represents the “Appearance” side. Dig a little deeper into the scene and a few builds will definitely stand out and represent a little bit of both.

When looking for that perfect balance of “Appearance” and “Performance”, there’s no disputing Jamie’s decision to opt for Honda’s rear wheel drive sports car, the S2000, as his platform. The exterior may scream “aggressive” with a quick glance. However, if you were to disect Jamie’s S2000 all the way down to its chassis, you will soon realize that there is a lot more to it than it’s stance, eye catching Volk CE28Ns, J’s rear wing, and J’s front canards.

Jamie, who actively participated at many Race City Motorsports Park Track Days, knew exactly what performance parts were needed to better his skill and technique on the road course. The more Jamie was on the track, the more the suspension, aero, and chassis were upgraded, with help from Japanese manufacturers like J’s Racing, T1-R and Cusco to name a few.

With the true passion of a car enthusiast, nothing was completed simply overnight, but achieved with careful thought and taken step by step, until the car performed precisely to Jamie’s driving style.

With an aggressive exterior and the proper knowledge on how to modify a vehicle according to a driver’s habits on the race track, Jamie’s S2000 is undeniably a true testament to achiveing that perfect balance between “Appearance” and “Performance”.

So if you ever get a chance to see Jamie’s S2000 in action at the track or even just cruising the streets, you now know there’s a lot more to it than it’s striking “Appearance”.
