|The roll cage does not extend through the firewall in typical JDM fashion. Many JDM tuners believe that a chassis has to flex to get grip. The car does have a beefy strut tower brace. This area of the chassis on an S2K is pretty stiff as well.|
The driver is retained by a Recaro SP-A seat with Takata MPH-341WR harnesses. The steering wheel is a Momo with a J’s Racing/Racetech quick release. A Max Racing digital dash feeds the driver critical information.
|Dash and switch detail.|
A very unique chassis feature are front and rear J’s Racing subframes. These subframes are lighter and stiffer than stock and correct the suspension geometry. This goes beyond the simple rear toe rod relocation of the AP2 by correcting more of the wonky geometry issues of the AP1. To combat the CV joint problems that S2K’s with low ride height experience, the chassis also uses J’s Racing axle spacers to prevent overextending and rapid wear of the CV joints. The car weighs in at a feathery 2500 lbs with driver with a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.
|J’s Racing front six piston caliper and big two piece rotor really up the stopping power. The S2K has weak brakes from the factory and this is a good upgrade.|
Brakes are also critical for a track car and this S2K is no exception. J’s Racing 6-piston calipers grip big front and rear J’s Racing lightweight 2-piece rotors. Temperature resisting Seidoya N1-500 front and GT600 rear brake pads are used. Braided steel J’s Racing brake lines ensure a firm brake pedal.
|J’s Racing provides the two piece rear rotors. This saves unspring and rotating weight.|
