RR of the Day: 2001 Honda S2000

Of his yellow 2001 Honda S2000, Flickr user solo2photo sums things up pretty succintly when he writes, "it comes from the factory already able to be pretty competitive." Since Honda was thoughtful enough to deliver such a capable vehicle to the masses, solo2photo hasn't had to go too crazy with the mods. He runs the car in the A Stock (AS) class and is limited in terms of the changes he's allowed to make, anyway.

The modifications to the Honda include some basic things you expect to see, such as an Invidia exhaust upgrade, a K&N filter, Koni adjustable shocks, and an adjustable front sway bar by Saner. He also has no fewer than 5 sets of wheels, each sporting different rubber. (Talk about being prepared...)

Other niceties include a quick-release wiring system that lets him easily remove his 80+ lbs of stereo equipment in a few minutes (there's that whole being prepared thing again), a Modifry coolant temp driver, Modifry redline shift beeper, and an in-car video system (which produced the two clips we've got posted after the jump). The external appearance is tastefully dressed up with an OEM lip spoiler, side strakes, and decklid spoiler. Since the car's a daily driver, solo2photo has added several convenience and stereo mods, all of which are listed after the jump.

Solo2Photo says that he's done well with the car in local events, and is looking to broaden his horizons by running it at the divisional and possibly the national level. We wish him good luck and admire his nicely-sorted machine, which is today's Reader Ride of the Day.

Make sure you check out the additional photos, a pair of videos of the car in action, and full modification list after the jump!

NEXT WEEK'S THEME: Cars of the '80s!
Break out the leg warmers and your old Atari 2600, because we're going back to the '80s for our next RR of the Day theme. All next week we want to feature glorious cars from the decade that brought us the rise of Kevin Bacon as an actor and synthesized music as an art form. If you have a vehicle that originates from the 1980s, submit it to our Autoblog Flickr Pool to be considered for a RR of the Day feature. Man, it's gonna be a rad week.

How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!
