Car Feature>>the Evasive S2000

When we talk about time attack cars, we usually find ourselves focusing on the monster that run in the higher classes of competition. But as impressive as cars like Rado’s Scion or the HKS CT230R are, they bear little resemblance to the cars that everyday dudes can afford to build.

That’s just one of the makes things this Evasive Motorsports-built Honda S2000 worth a look. What you are looking at is car that’s just as happy navigating rush hour traffic on the 101 as it is setting class records at Buttonwillow Raceway.

Whether in Japan, the USA, or elsewhere, the S2000 has proved itself as a car that can do astonishing things with mild tuning, There are lots of S2K’s out there running ridiculous lap times with just suspension, aero, and very light engine tuning – and this Laguna Blue ’06 AP2 might be the best example of this so far.

Typically I start off these features talking about the engine or chassis setup, but in this case the aero kit is a huge part of this car so that’s where I’ll start.

As you might know, Evasive has close relationship with Voltex Racing in Japan, and this car served as the test-bed for the all-new Voltex S2000 aero kit.

At the time I shot the car, this was the only example of the Voltex
S2000 kit in the world. Not only does the kit and it’s unique three-peice front bumper look awesome, but you can bet it’s damn functional. This is Voltex after all.

The kit also includes a pair of all new side skirts, which can be seen here.

While in the rear a carbon diffuser has been attached to the OEM bumper.

Of course the package wouldn’t be complete without a matching Voltex carbon GT wing. You can never underestimate the importance of a good aero package, even on relatively low-powered car such as this one.

Other body modifications include a set of Craftsquare carbon mirrors, which have been painted body color…

…along with a set of ASM fender flares in the rear. I was actually surprised at how well these work with the new Voltex kit.

The front fenders meanwhile, are the original factory pieces that have been modified to fit the aggressive wheel and tire setup.

The wheels are 17×9.5 +40 Volk RE30’s all around, with 255/40/17 Advan Neovas.

An AP Racing brake kit up front helps to slow the car, while the stock brakes have proven themselves in the rear. Rotors are Stop Tech all around, with Project Mu pads.

Under the hood the 2.2 liter F22C is relatively untouched. Modifications include a Toda header and a giant J’s Racing intake to help her breathe a bit better.

While on the street a standard HKS exhaust system is used, but for track days it’s replaced with this high tech “race pipe”.

Chassis and suspension work includes a set of Tein Super Racing coilovers, Swift sway bars, Mugen bushings, and a Spoon X-brace. The rear diff has been upgraded to J’s Racing two-way unit with a 4.4 final.

The S2000 still has its interior intact, as a street car should. The seats, however, have been replaced with a set of Recaro SPG’s with Schroth harnesses. A Hard Dog roll bar also helps to keep things safe and stiff.

Finally, the OEM steering wheel has been replaced with this handsome one from Personal.

Instead of an exotic carbon fiber top like a lot race cars out there, the hard top here is an OEM Honda peice.

Last November this car set a Street FR class record at the Buttonwillow Super Lap, and unlike some of the other so-called “street cars” out there, this S2000 sees regular commutes from Simi Valley into Los Angeles.

So, we have a car that looks great, breaks records at the track, and is totally docile on the street. A perfect testament to both the potential of the decade-old S2000 chassis, and even more so to Evasive’s philosphy as a car builder.

nice front bumper


Meh. When's the daily driver FD2 Civic with the Type-R conversion going to be featured?


fuck so nice!


I <3 Evasive!




The Voltex body kit is pretty bad ass man, and the fact that it's 100% functional just adds to the awesomeness. This car REALLY shows how there much more to a track setup than just gobs of power...Big ups to Evasive and thanks fo rthe feature.

note: I think there's a typo on the tire size. 215 sounds kinda small?


If i could ever afford one...


whats with the 9.5 inch wide rims when you are only gonna run 215 tires? Why not save weight and get less wide rims or use the width to its full potential?


Those are some seriously wide 215's, is that a typo? Really nice car, I love the streetable track car concept, its how i'm building my e36 sedan.


my favorite car of all time..because of this car i bought an s2000 already saving for the AP BBK and the evasive spec coilovers,for now am on lowing spring and the rest is 100% stock... Evasive s2000 prove how fast the 2000 is...great job guys


The tire size is actually 255/40/17


Sorry about the typo on the tiresize. Looks like they are 255's.


AWESOME!! I've been waiting for this since you guys first featured Evasive last month


If this is, in fact, a street-class scoot, i sure hope that that "race pipe" has a functioning cat wrapped up under that fiberglass!!!!


I always loved the handling of the S2000, it's a very balanced car and great for circuit. However, i am curious as to know how can the car be improved to work better in big circuits like Fuji Speedway or Wangan/highway runs where power is important. It seems that not many favor turbocharging the S2000 or Supercharging. Wonder if there are any good time attack S2000s once they are turbocharged or supercharged? Have heard that it upsets the handling characteristic of the car. Would be interesting to see any examples here on Speedhunters.


That's a beautiful machine. Just WOW! The blue, black and white theme is really workin'.


one of my favorite cars period! love this car.. esp. since it's street and track driven. plus.. S2000s hold a special place in my heart. To Mike G --- considering the author stated that the street spec HKS exhaust (which.. in 99.9% of cases is a "cat-back" system) is replaced by the "race pipe" one can logically come to the conclusion that the cat stays bolted to the car. lol


the kit looks proper.. love the intake via the headlight.. front bumper is nice too.. any lap times??


Wow. I just stole sooo many ideas :D


Cooooooolnesssss!! Desktop please. :)


Great car, great company, great people, great drivers.


i thought the same thing about the headlight at first but if you look at the pictures from under the hood, the intake is actually routed to the front airdam


Mike G, AFAIK Super Lap Battle street class rules do not require the use of a catalytic converter... unlike Redline.


Incredible post! Evasive knows what there doing, I love there s2K and the s2000 in general


Looks like the headlight duct blows cool air over the intake manifold.


@ Jeff -

Yeah, looks like the headlight intake goes to...A/C?


check out the video of this car setting the record at buttonwillow


Looks like the headlight intake blows air to the brake master cylinder. to cool it down?


@ProperOne, yeah, they said "While on the street a standard HKS exhaust system is used, but for track days it's replaced with this high tech "race pipe." Just looking at the length of the pipe in the 2nd to last pic & you'll see that pipe butts up to the header! BUT LOLWUT made a good point in that it runs in SuperLap-not Redline. Would suck if they put their business out there and it cost them wins cause the car/execution is BADASS! I really like this ride.


Finally! Seems like there's no love for the S any more...
