We decided to meet up with the prominent S2000 Club of the UAE and it sure was a busy day. Sorry for the long delay in posting up the photos and a very special thanks to everybody who managed to take and upload these shots! We look forward to hang out with the Honda S2000 club again and any other auto community out there.

Car communities are pretty small here and it really helps to join forces and work together on building better meets, events and drives!

Nissan’s IDx Freeflow and Honda’s New Beat Concept!

Nissan-IDx-FreeFlow-Datsun-510-Concept-01-640x426

This year’s Tokyo Motor Show featured some really interesting concept cars from Nissan and Honda. The following concepts seem hint that there is still an appeal and interest in an entry level drivers’ car which is something we dearly miss these days. Nissan’s IDx Freeflow sends a strong message with its resemblance to the once reputable Datsun 510; while Honda’s Beat, seems to have grown a bit bigger than its Kei car origins.

Toyota 86 Sedan Approved for Production!

18208612162015232307

Wait!!

Before you start complaining about why this is a ridiculous idea and why on earth would they approve a sedan variant while dropping the idea of a convertible version? Well, think about the bright side of having an 86 sedan. Remember the Datsun 510 or the BMW E30 sedans? Well you can think of this 4 door 86 as their modern alternative; a cheap, practical and a simple performance sedan. Plus, the wife is less likely to complain about it, the kids will probably like it and the insurance quote could go lower.

The 86, for the least, still remains loyal to the idea of being a ‘budget’ sports car. Though the price being proposed, initially, could probably be a bit too high but were not certain as we got the info from Australian sources:

First of all, apologies for the limited amount of photos for this event as we were busy having too much fun. We head out as a convoy from Dubai Outlet Mall towards Al Ain on a very hot afternoon. As we reach Al Ain we get greeted by dark clouds, cooler weather, rain fall and finally the guy who made it all possible, Theo, the boss of Adapt Performance.

H&R Springs Installation for the Toyota 86

14 copy

Last time, we worked on installing BC adjustable coilovers on Firas’s 86. This time, we are installing H&R lowering springs on Sid’s 86.

The process takes, almost, the same time as installing coilovers but goes to a slightly different route as we had to disassemble each strut, remove the stock springs and replace them with the nice blue H&R ones. The end result was very satisfying, coupled with H&R wheel spacers on the front and the back.

July 26th Trackday

IMG_7286 copyFor the first time, some of our members take the 86 out for a trackday, putting this car to the test for the first time. The weather on that day was warm and humid. The track was pretty dusty and humid as well.

A couple of the 86’es had their transmission and brake fluids swapped for something more genuine. Tire pressures were adjusted and off they went on track.
