Shortly after the Evo arrived, there was always this question of why does this car not stop as it should. Last night the calipers were taken apart for a deep clean and service, not so surprised to see one of the rears were seized, luckily it was able to be saved. The lack of braking performance was also caused by three of the four lines being semi to completely clogged, luckily there was already a set of Goodridge stainless brake lines here. The Endless pads that went into the car earlier this year were chucked in place for Ferodo DS2500s, Brembo sport slotted rotors were also installed.

For more than twenty years, Goodridge have been supplying hose and fittings to the world’s leading race teams. Ongoing research and development means that the lessons learned on the track are passed on to you, the serious user.

These race-bred brakelines are constructed from the finest quality hose, consisting of a PTFE inner and stainless steel overbraid.

• Eliminated sponginess under heavy braking.
• Increases braking efficiency.
• Abrasion and corrosion resistant.

Available now for most Honda/Acura applications.


It’s been almost a week now from when the Evo first arrived, since then it has been striped down to address some major wiring issues. Inside the cockpit you immediately see a GReddy controller paired to some Apex’i controller, relayed over to some other JDM controller, wired over to some boost gauge, all of which did not function. Along with all the modern computers, came a load ton of wiring that really didn’t lead to anything, more tapped into places where it should not have been tapped to. Rather than sorting each unit out and tracing hundreds of wires, it was all pulled and placed into the garbage where it belonged, currently still at the restoring point of the main cabin harness.


No, unfortunately this is not Evo’s Evo, although identical in colour it may be, Evo’s elephant powered machine is still somewhere in Hong Kong, supposedly making its way to some container onto some boat! ETA, at this point, completely unknown! For the time being our friend has kindly lent David his Evo, so that we can learn to appreciate what fine Italian engineering is all about.


8th Annual All Italian “Tutto Italiano” Exotic Vehicle Show – As expected Lambo’s and Ferrari’s were abundant. Italian Food, Wine, Music and Gelato were offered throughout the day, “nom, nom, nom…”

As we departed the Italian supercar infested grounds, we were stopped by a yellow Ford. The GT was parked right at the enterance to the lot. Apparently, the rivalry did not end with 4 LeMans wins in a row, he had to come rub it in…

Conversation between the Noble owner and a Ferrari owner.

Italian Car Owner: “What are you doing here?”
Noble Owner: “Huh?”
Italian Car Owner: “This is an Italian car show, that is not Italian.”
Noble Owner: “Well, I have an Italian steering wheel.”
Italian Car Owner: “But that is not an Italian car.”
Noble Owner: “So! This car is faster than anything else here…”
