Jei's Kraftwerks Powered S2000 @ S2K Challenge, Buttonwillow CW13

The inspiration behind building this S2000 was from Sport Compact Car Magazine's Ultimate Street Car Challenge. We participated in the challenge in 2007 with Aki's LS1 powered 300ZX. The goal was to build a full interior street car that could do a respectable lap time at any local track. Besides the wing and splitter, the car drives on the street as you see it here.

This was our very first race event in the S2000. The car was having oversteering issues all day. The wind and dust didn't help the track either. We spent all day changing rear tire pressures, shock settings, aero and toe but were still limited on traction. Best official lap time was 2:00.8sec taking 1st in Unlimited and 3rd best lap time overall for the day. Check out the in-car footage.
