AirRex Honda S2000 - The Unsprung Legend


Building a race auto is about extremes - basically going more remote than you'd ever have the capacity to with a street going vehicle, and turning everything up to 11 keeping in mind the end goal to wring each and every ounce of potential execution.

This straightforward equation has given us some wild, fire burping brutes fabricated exclusively to cut pinnacles, draft past rivals, and pound around consummately smooth black-top lap after lap, after lap.

The great way of race autos (combined with the actuality the world has been hustling vehicles for over a century) implies that the essential tenets overseeing what a race auto ought to and shouldn't have are very much recorded, and no place does this ring more genuine than while talking about suspension.

Throughout the years the essential outline has been extended and refined, yet the fundamental standard continues as before: on the off chance that you need to go hustling, you require a customary, coilover suspension to get it going.

The section above ought to give you some thought with reference to why the S2000 you see before you is such a distinct advantage.

Indeed, it's more than a distinct advantage, it's a third way, an alternate way to deal with hustling and a thistle in the side of the foundation.

What's more, the explanation behind every one of this miracle? It's running AirRex air suspension as opposed to springs or coilovers, and maybe most astonishing: it's ultra-aggressive.

"I'm the proprietor and administrator of AirRex, so obviously I'm quick to showcase the abilities of my items wherever I can," clarifies the auto's proprietor and driver, Bleary eyed Lin.

"That being said, the choice to use our own particular air suspension while building the race auto as was much about demonstrating the benefits of the setup as it was about advancement, and I generally trusted an air-shod auto could be an on-track achievement."

So how would you turn an air-shod S2000 into a race auto fit for bloodying the noses of the colossal and the benefit of the motorsport group?

The answer, obviously, is incalculable hour of work, cleaned knuckles, brushed knees, amplified MIG welder and edge processor sessions - and math.

Parcels and loads of math! The genuine prep work was embraced by the fairly hilariously named "Goodness F**k Execution," a group of race auto developers with a sterling notoriety in China, so the perfect gathering of individuals to attempt such a leftfield venture.

One of the rule issues the group needed to overcome was the way to make the air suspension setup sufficiently solid for motorsport use.

While particularly a known amount while examining the standard, curl spring setups that can be found underneath the wings of race autos the world over, the complete inverse was valid for air packs and compressors.

"I can't give away a lot of data on the specifics of the setup as it's critical to our on track execution and I would prefer not to uncover a hard-battled advantage, yet trust me when I say that others at Gracious F**k Execution spent a long, long time building up a progression of props to put enough unbending nature into the air setup," enthuses Discombobulated.

Despite the fact that the supporting case work, bracings and mounts are all custom, the genuine AirRex pack now found on Discombobulated's S2000 is surprisingly like the one you could go and purchase for your own one of a kind street going auto.

Yes, various fittings have been uprated with the end goal them should have the capacity to withstand the weights and burdens proficient dashing involves, however generally it's the same freely accessible mix of compressors, smashes, and strengthened packs.

All concerned were quick to hold however much of the first pack's center usefulness as could be expected, somewhat as an investigation to perceive how far regular segments could be pushed, and incompletely as a promoting exercise; i.e, demonstrating that AirRex's equipment can take the great strengths connected with motorsport without hardly lifting a finger.

As a reward, driving home the way that "airing out" a games auto doesn't inexorably mean trading in pinpoint taking care of.

"I'll concede that even I was somewhat suspicious about the group's capacity to reproduce the sharpness, feel, and sheer responsiveness that you get with springs and dampers," clarifies Lightheaded, including, "yet unmistakably I truly had no should be concerned; the auto handles consummately!

It's just as engaged as it was when fitted with routine suspension, and maybe somewhat better in certain driving circumstances."

The sacks aren't the main thing confounding's S2000 adhere to the track.

They get assistance from a battery of reseller's exchange skeleton equipment traps, including Quick against move bars, Mate Club back camber arms and a complete arrangement of Mugen bushings.

Alongside the additional supports included amid the creation procedure, these instill the packs and slams with the additional quality and firmness they have to carry out their occupation while pounding cycle a race track.

Different components of the construct are more customary, however no less intriguing or compelling.

The S2000's trump card has dependably been its energy plant - that magnetic, high-revving workhorse willing to shout itself into a free for all, and subsequently more than suited to hustling.

Tipsy's endeavored to expand upon what Honda gave him in this admiration, fitting a TODA race header, Pipercross actuation pack, and a J's Hustling deplete framework, before leaving the entire setup in the proficient hands of a MoTeC administration framework.

Not just has that little part talented the S2000 with a calculable trek in execution, they've made the officially uproarious VTEC hybrid considerably more vocal, to the point where it just adjusts to the controls representing commotion contamination at the different circuits Unsteady contends at. 

"It's noisy, yes," chuckles Discombobulated with a shrug.

"The thing is however, what's the point in having an agreeable, calm race auto? They're intended to be somewhat insane, quick, and considerably louder."

Dazed's made a point to get however much use as could reasonably be expected from his auto since it was finished, and it's since turn into a normal (and most likely welcome) sight at race gatherings crosswise over China, including the TTCC, Super TTCC, OTGP and TSSL, all regarded local arrangement.

There's something else entirely to this auto than minor race wins however, and it's difficult to get around the way that its most momentous viewpoint is the air setup it depends on.

We don't think about you, yet we're happy this auto exists, if nothing else on the grounds that it's viably a mammoth, two-fingered salute to the set up method for going engine hustling.
