Thank you all for your supportive post's.
Particularly keeweelogger.
I'm both flattered and humbled by what you've posted.
To the point I'm lost for words...   :lipsseal:

Extra large and in charge thanks to our glorious leader TeamVTEC.
Who's always looking out for me.
With friendly reminder's that I haven't returned to CV.org to update this thread.
He knows me very well, and that I haven't stopped restoring my SiR II.  :angel:

So just to update you all.
Finally I have relinked all but a few of my images in this thread.
Will fix the others.
Plus update you all on what my SiR II and I have been up to.
As we've been up to heaps together!!!!  :up:

2008 Update - My has time flown by...
« Reply #31 on: May 31, 2008, 12:57:10 PM »
Greetings all,

Its thanks to the impressive efforts of Joe Racer with his splendid online diary of his EF9-100 SiR II race car.
And the feeling of guilt on my part of how long its been since I've updated this thread.
Combined with the arrival, and soon to be fitted, Complete Distributor, that have motivated me to finally update this thread. 

Rather than jump straight to the present day.
I now present a series of post's and images to bring you all up to date on what I've been up to since.
And eventually where I am now with my restoration in progress...

PRF from New Zealand

June 2007
Here I am, pictured competing in my first competition circuit event with my SiR II.
The circuit is Pukekohe Park Raceway.
I am pictured on the section between the left hand turn after the hairpin.
And the notorious right hand turn following, which leads to the Start/Finish Line straight.
This would be one of the last few events that I would be using my Michelin Pilot Preceda tyres.
As they were nearing their 1.5mm Tread Wear Indicators.

This event started in heavy, wet conditions.  :coolsm:
I knew I had to be careful, stay on the circuit, and bide my time hoping the weather would improve.
Allowing the circuit to dry, before I could push harder.
And get to grips with the balance and handling traits of my SiR II on this very high speed layout.

It was at this event I discovered not only has my SiR II still got the JDM 180km/h speed cut still fitted, and working.
But braking from 180km/h to 50km/h within 200m each lap generates enough heat into the front wheels.
That both front Centre Caps become dislodged due to expansion from heat in the MR-5 Final Version wheels.
I would eventually learn this is not a good idea, as I would lose the front two Centre Caps by the end of the day at each circuit event.
Knowing too that MR-5 Final Version Centre Caps differ from MR-5 Centre Caps.
And both are No Longer Available from Mugen also sent shockwaves through me.  :cry:
You'll notice later in this thread, more current photos show my SiR II racing without Centre Caps fitted front and rear for this very reason.
And you'll understand why I have always removed the Bolt Hole Covers, after losing too many of those for the same reasons previously.  :banghead:

My SiR II at this stage has 225,000km on its odometer.
I race it in the same specification I drive it daily.
That being with full interior, OE suspension, and high performance street tyres.
Since fitting the Mugen Engine Mount Set, and Change Lever Bush Set detailed previously.
I had fitted intime for this event:

Bride
Right Hand Seat Rail
HO29RO

Genuine Honda
Front Stabiliser Bush Set
(part number coming) 

Mugen
Rear Trailing Arm Bush Set
52385-XE9-S0N0
Rear Stabiliser Linkage Set
52314-XE5-S0N0
Steering Gear Box Cushion Set
53434-XE5-S0N0

Recaro
Black SR3 Right Hand Reclining Bucket Seat from DC2/DB8 Integra Type R
(part number coming)

Spoon Sports
Front Brake Pads
(part number coming)
Rear Brake Pads
(part number coming)

Vision Technica Sport
Rear Strut Brace
(part number coming)
Circuit Converter
H-1

The Recaro Seat and Bride Seat Rail I would only fit during race day.
As I prefer the standard appearance of the original equipment seats fitted for daily driving.
To avoid attracting unwanted attention.
All the while I must admit it does not provide anywhere near the support, and feel of the Recaro and Bride combination.  :up:

Now I know we all love images here, and as I'm short of them as I write this I shall stop here for now.
I will upload more images tomorrow, update this post with missing part numbers.
And post mode details of what I have been up to.
To bring this thread up to date.

How's life on the other side of the globe Pasene?, since your last reply dates from 13-09-07 :azn:
I'm glad to read you're still 100% dedicated to your civic, and it's nice to see the circuit action pictures you posted.

Wasn't there an option to ask someone to get on the track when the races were finished and search for those center caps?

Keep us posted with more recent footage, great to hear from you again :up:
