Adrs2k’s lightly modded 2008 S2000 CR and the quest for the perfect driver’s car

One of my favorite cars is the Honda S2000. Unfortunately, I’ve never driven one, which is basically the story with all my favorite cars. One of the perks of being a starving artist I suppose. Anyways, depending on how long I end up doing this blog, I intend to cover plenty of nice S2000 builds. While cruising s2ki.com looking for an S2000 build to cover I came across adrs2k’s build thread. It’s a light build, more a series of mods meant to enhance the car’s natural characteristics. I find this sort of light mod path interesting because I’m pretty much the exact opposite. I’m all or nothing. I want to take a car as far as it can possibly go. I’m a numbers guy. I have no problems giving up civility in order to change the numbers. But what makes this case even more interesting is adrs2k’s S2000 is a CR edition. The CR stands for Club Racer. This is a trim level geared towards track use. This is basically Honda doing their take on a light mod path for enhancing the cars track abilities. So what happens when an owner then adds their layer of slight tweaks on top of Honda’s?

*note in the build thread adrs2k owned a silver S2000 before he picked up the blue CR.
