Type-S Taxi
Daily Driver Owned by RJF

  • I fancied something I could hang onto for a few years... I had always wanted an Accord 7th Generation Sedan but had never considered the Tourer. One came up for sale while I was browsing the web and I ended up buying it a few weeks later.

    The idea behind it is that I can transport people, wheels, tools and jacks to the track when we do track days in Project ECK20 (see my "garage"), as well as being able to drive it to and from work on a daily basis.

  2. What are the BC's like? Can you make them a bit more comfortable for the street?

      Perfect, couldn't recommend them highly enough. I've owned HSD coilovers in the past and these are leaps and bounds better. They're 32-way adjustable, on their softest setting they're noticeably softer than stock. I run mine slightly stiffer than stock and slightly stiffer up front (personal preference). The spring rates are 10/8kg which I've found to be perfect, unless you've got the boot fully-loaded, in which case you could probably do with a marginally stiffer spring.

      Generally it's a few bikes hanging off the back, 2-3 people in the car and a small amount of luggage, or three people in the car with three bikes on longer trips. Reckon there'd be any issues with the standard springs? What about compression, can that be increased temporarily instead of replacing the springs?

      Not at all, the only reason I notice the difference when loaded is because I run them fairly low. I regularly carry 3-4 people with a loaded boot and they're perfect. I wouldn't say you'd need to change the springs unless you were constantly loaded up in the back. You can change the dampening (how quickly they settle one compressed) but not the spring rate (I don't think you'd need to from what you've said).

      Just twigged who you are. Does that mean you've got rid of the 350z? Think the last time I was at a his meet it was at the body shop and you were saying if you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.

      Yeah, I sold the 350z at the beginning of last year, just wasn't for me... Rings a bell actually, I had the bumper painted 4 times in as many weeks. Do not miss that thing!
