Just chilling on a twisty road on what was my daily driver (sold). I'm not on a racetrack, not maxing the car, just toying around a bit while staying safe and coming back in one piece.
This is Highway 53 in Oregon. The road was halfway wet.
97-01 Prelude SH
Cheap $40 adjustable springs, stock struts
Stock Rims with great Bridgstone Potenza Tires, Speed Rated "W" (168 MPH), no reason to drive that fast, but higher speed rating seriously helps with grip at any speeds.
Cheap BOMZ racing cold air intake with old filter
Old clogged catyletic converter
ATTS unit is not functioning.
There might be cars out there that can take a corner faster, but few are so predictable, especially for the price. The Prelude provides almost a perfect link between the road and the driver. Steering is responsive, changes direction immediately, especially with with higher speed rated tires and slightly lower / stiffer suspension. Exhaust noise is beautiful, and the H22A4 2.2 Liter engine provides decent tourqe for its size.
A confident driver is good, and the Prelude gives you just that. An overconfident driver is as bad as a nervous driver and that can happen in any car.
Whatever the car, you still need common sense in the end. Stay safe. On downhill turns, make sure you brake early and drive slower through them. Uphill gives you much better grip in any car, and shorter stopping distance.
Prelude vs Prelude SH
READ DESCRIPTION FIRST!!!
I don't own this junk box anymore. Stop posting comments telling me to
charge the oil. Look at the date of the video, I took this almost a year
before I posted it. This thing is long gone.
