So yeah, since I saw a video when I must have been, 16? Of the hybrid Racing K20 EG racing the Evo, I wanted one. But I do not have the knowledge to do it myself, or the patients to get someone else to do it for me, which is why I've ended up buying the DC5.
But Simon's different, he did have the knowledge to do it, Its more talent, Any monkey can build a car, even me. Chuck a few things in here and their, few cable ties, and were done. But Simon has done this properly. The way Honda would have wanted it if they had ever done it instead of going all eco save the planet.He started off originally with a 1.6Vti Ek4, In Silver, i can remember watching the build up on Civiclife, It was a great condition awesome looking car. Then he said he'd sold it for a 1.4 to "save some money" So i Just didn’t really check back again for a while, because, well lets be honest their is an abundance of 1.4's which people put threads up on which are just the normal, Dropped on Rota’s then use the excuse "well they're cheap and its a daily" which is cool, but I've read enough about that in the last 5 years of being a forum whore.
But I Checked back as it had big *UPDATESSS* in the title
And then it was there, the same car, with a k20 in, properly, he'd done it over a weekend, I couldn’t believe it. I got all excited and had to show my friend harv who also a Honda bellend. Well I've been lucky enough to meet Si a few times now at shows and keep in contact with him over the wonders of the internet and now I feel like I can call him a friend, one of the awesome things about the Honda world in the UK is there’s not many people in it, lol so we all become pretty close, no homo.
Si's one of the people, that genuinely enjoys genuine products, I know I bang on about "genuine" etc but that’s just because I do enjoy seeing something that I know that person has searched long and hard for, there isn’t anything wrong with Rota's & other such brands but I just don't find any appeal in them, like I always say its where your heart is, and I guess mine's just with the big brands which for some reason Myself & other like minded people get branded the wrong image, but I know for a fact, Si's the same, he enjoys the finer things in life & the more unique.The car has a lot of hand built little touches, one I noticed (I say noticed, I'd seen on the forums and then he pointed them out to me again at the meet) was the spoiler tilts & little things like this just always make me appreciate the car that little bit more.Also landing a sponsorship from MeisterR Suspension company (which I will be hooked up with soon) the car sits perfect for what it needs, to go fast.
The car's awesome to drive too, I had a little go, I got out of the car flowing with adrenalin & i couldnt stop talking about it. I loved it.
Picture he text me too:
Basically that's how i'm going to end this, i could bang on about it all day as its one of my favourite modified Honda’s about at the minute. But I’m not going to. I need to do some work that will actually get me some money.
