As much as I hate the Fit, on days like today I'm glad I have it.



Test fitting tomorrow...

I had a first gen Fit and miss it. You can put so much shit in those and still have fun driving and get great mpgs. Not a better car in its class.

Mine is a 2nd gen, it sucks but it's cool and it's helpful as a box on wheels, but I still hate it.

Anywhoooo, test fit the wheels today.



Fronts fit fine, no spacer or roll needed.





Rears fit pretty well but will need a mild roll as I suspected. I can't quite slide my finger all the way along the top, no way this will fly on track. It doesn't look like I will need to use a spacer or change the alignment. Fitment on the shock side is fine. It's close but it doesn't touch anything lol. I might end up raising the whole car up a bit and getting corner balanced again. Heading out for the fender fix on Sunday afternoon.

Finally on, only took me 9 months

Honestly I love them. I brought the car to Fender Defender near Irwindale, we ended up trimming the inner fenders on the rear and not touching the fronts. Looks great, nothing visibly different from the outside and we got an extra 20mm of clearance or so. Very pleased!

I'm glad I can finally move on to the rest of my list of projects. Track day Saturday...

Looks good and should be fun at the track.
Did they add some sort of rust protection after trimming the fenders?
Looked like the tires wouldn't have rubbed on the fenders prior to modding them. I've had minor rubbing on the inner wheel well with similar wheel/tire setups.

Thanks Carlos!

Sammy, yup part of the process is spraying some clear coat over the area that's been cut to seal the exposed metal from the elements. You can just slightly see the cut area, so I ordered some 314 touchup paint to go over that to satisfy my selective OCD-ness.

After a good long drive, I haven't seen (or heard) any signs of rubbing. Excited to turn some laps tomorrow... My wheels are already like gunmetal from the brake dust lol, that's one thing that isn't so great at the moment. I can see a scenario with these pads destroying my new finish with the quickness. Gotta be not diligent about cleaning regularly. I'm hoping to switch out to a street compound for daily use and keep these for just track days.

Well today was awesome. I had a couple of great sessions and ended up with a best time of 2:08.xx at Buttonwillow, clockwise configuration 13. Not "fast" but not too bad. I did 2:13.xx when the car was stock. I didn't mess with the setup at all today, just drove and enjoyed it, and tried to remember the subtleties of the track. I'm kinda rusty lol. I went 2 off a couple times, no 4 offs or spins.

I do think I will set my front bar to full stiff and the rear to full loose. Right now they are both at medium (I think? Rear might only be 2 settings) and I'm not sure that's the right choice as it's slightly twitchy. I also think I will try an increase to front compression and rear rebound as the car dives a bit more under braking than I would prefer. Although this change may increase understeer... Will have to tinker a bit on my next outting. The brakes are awesome, god I love them. Thoughts of a big brake kit are lingering, but not very close to the front of my mind after such a positive day today. The A052 is also awesome, tons of grip for a 200 UTQG tire. I would love to have a 255 square 17-inch setup, but one thing at a time. lol. With the 255 rear and 225 front, it's pretty easy to steer/rotate with the throttle but I do wish I had more meat up front.

PS: to any of you who frequent Buttonwillow, the pupuseria has gone down hill... That place was bomb a few years ago. Still probably better than the BBQ or Indian place though.

Some action shots from Saturday...







Nothing new to report at the moment. I want to get back on track ASAP. I know I have a faster time in me.

I think the next thing I'll address build wise is probably the clutch and some related items. I have a couple of work projects coming up so this all might be on hold for a while. I'll chime back in when I have some actual updates.
