So we’ll be straight up. This aint the prettiest feature car of all time. Far from it. But what we love about this S2000 is that nothing is there that doesn’t need to be. If it doesn’t make the car faster, it’s not worried about. But for all the dirt and grime there is a certain elegance about this Honda S2000. You just need to look underneath the layers to realise that this build is all about the driving. The S2000 is one of the greatest sports car chassis ever produced and with a few basic mods in the right areas can become a formidable time attack weapon. Devin Giles show’s us his rough but track ready time attack build.
Your Name: Devin Stiglitz Giles
Model: S2000 “Sheri”
What made you build a car for time attack?
I like Aero, ever since I saw Timeattack in person back in 2009 or 2010. It was raining that day but I still remember seeing all the cool looking cars at autobahn.
What series do you run the car in?
Gridlife Track Battle and Global Time Attack
Do you drive it yourself, if not, who drives it?
I’m the driver
When was the build started and when did it finish?
The build was started in 2012 and has slowly progressed into what you see today. With new products being introduced everyday, I don’t think Sheri will ever be finished.
What are you currently working on to improve the car?
Well the 2016 season is over for me so I’m currently working on maximizing the small things and changing a couple of big things.
What are some future upgrades?
Future upgrades consist of more tire, another 120hp, and lose some more weight.
