"I always knew the CTS-V was some kind of monster, but after visiting D3 I think I have a new appreciation for the tuning potential of these American-bred, high powered beasts." -Keith
My sentiments exactly!
A shop that preps cars for road racing is my kind of place.

American Honda will pull the rug from under the U.S. market faster that you can say S2000.

How am I complaining? I merely made a statement. The conversations usually up the same way once an article about "stance" is posted. Those who so adamantly defend it are the ones whose whole foot gets pricked, let alone their toes. Just look at the title....LOL!

@Hanma @ITRbroham You're right and I don't read them.
I guess the proverbial "writing" has been "on the wall" for some time now: Speedhunters has a real soft spot for the "stance" and "hellaflush" fads.
The GPW AP1 is the Bunzou Racing/TS Factory entry. Here's one of the owner/driver Minkara webpages: http://minkara.carview.co.jp/en/smart/userid/1945605/blog
I think he co-drives the Spoon S2000 race car as well.

Any images of "oku maru" Spa Yellow AP1? This n/a S2000 was doing 59 sec laps.

Too bad the Stradale/Amuse "Touge Monster" AP1 had engine trouble and couldn't post a lap time. At a previous outing at Tsukuba it did a low 59 sec.lap.

I always marvel at the methods of routing the exhaust manifold to feed the turbo on K-series powered cars. I admire the craftsmanship and dedication for a platform that even some Honda enthusiasts have turned their back on.

I'm with K.T.
Others will have an opinion but in the end yours in the only one that really matters. I prefer function over form as well. Want to to fit that wider wheel/tire combo under the fenders of your track/ race car? DO IT!

@Simply P @ITRbroham
Any proof that CSD or Roberuta suspensions are anywhere near the performance of KW? I never even considered the LW GTR a "lowrider", but more like a V.I.P car.

CSD height adjustable Platinum VIP "air cup suspension system"
This GTR looks cool but I stopped reading after viewing the above. IMO, some things have no place on a performance oriented automobile.
@tbtstt Can someone please get in car or regular video of this car while on track? It is just too cool not to!

@ Kenny from the Block
LOL.........is that the best reply you are able to post? Once again, your point is moot in every sense of the word! The tone of Grand Sport's post doesn't change that and it seems your just saving face . Yes, the owners of the cars pictured above are no doubt free to mod their cars they way they choose. This still does not overrule the fact that these cars are performance-oriented vehicles that are no longer capable of that due to improper sized tires mounted on low offset wheels with suspensions fully bottomed out.
If anything, it's nothing but a trend with damn near no originality let alone functionality. Just about every car is modded with the same basic formula: no matter what the model/type of car its low offset wheels/rubber band tires tucked into the fender at a ride height that barely reveals daylight.
Same old story, just a different book.:sigh:
Hopefully it remains a concept.

Any more info on or images of the Spa Yellow AP1? it was at the BE event you covered last year.
One of my favorite drivers of all timeI If you look up the word "quick" in the dictionary, there should be a photo of Jacky Ickx there. Everything he drives he make it look easy to drive fast,
