An evening at Evasive…

This is actually from a couple weeks back but because of the SEMA coverage, I haven’t been able to go through them until now. Rodrez had hit me up to help him out and give him a ride down to the auto transporter. The CR-Z had just returned from Las Vegas and he needed the car back to install the C-West aero. He wanted to get the kit on in time for Super Lap Battle where it would make it’s first official run in their new hybrid class. The Honda Tuning CR-Z ended up doing very well that day in fact, and actually placed first in the hybrid class. I’m pretty sure it didn’t have anything to do with whether or not the kit was on but it definitely made the car look a lot more aggressive. Evasive Motorsports had the time and space for us to install the kit since they were prepping for the event as well so we picked up the CR-Z from the transporter and got to work. The following pics are just kinda random. They’re just shots I took whenever I had free time on  my hands because the majority of the night was spent on fitting and installing the kit. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and was relatively simple, the only issue we had was the fitment of the rear lip. Anyways, on with the pics…

A shot of what was all going on at Evasive before we pulled the CR-Z in…

The DC Sports S2000 was there getting some minor things done to it as well…

Voltex aero on their shop Evo. I’m sure you guys are familiar with this car by now…

Our all-Japanese language instructions that proved to be no help at all…

I have actual step-by-step pictures of the install but I had to save them since they are being used for a write-up in HT that covers the CR-Z’s build progress…

Here’s one of the shots of Rodrez working on the car. He’s removing the OEM rear lip to make room for the C-West piece…

The rear lip ended-up needing some modification as the U.S. rear bumper turned out to be different from the JDM rear. Everything else had fit close to perfect up until that point…

The front makes a world of difference. We were wondering how it would look with the JDP front grille piece but it ended-up working out great…

Volk RE-30s that were getting balanced for their personal Civic 4-door Street Class race car….

Rodrez working on the kit and Mike from Evasive applying decals to his Civic…

…he didn’t do too bad of a job considering how quickly he threw them on there…

Their Evo getting prepped for battle…

Volk TE37SL wheels that would eventually go on the Evo…

The front bumper was removed so that more modifications to the front aero pieces could be performed…

The RE-30s getting balanced…

Rodrez and I were both a little lost as to why this dude showed up to the shop with a bird on his arm…the most random fucking thing ever….

Random shot of the Evo…

The final product after we installed the kit….

Oh and here are some pics of it at Super Lap Battle courtesy of Evasive Motorsports…

Tarzan Yamada checking out the CR-Z…

…and for anyone that was wondering, the CR-Z posted a time of 2:18 CW13 at Button Willow on Falken Azenis 615K tires.

That’s all for today, got a special treat for you guys tomorrow so stayed tuned…
