    Today, I received the message from them that they have shipped the looms out.

    I think it will take a while due to the bad weather we had recently but I hope Iíll receive them at the beginning of January.

    So, for those who ordered it, itís on its way now from JapanÖ

    Once again, it's time to say good bye to another NSX for the time being after spending some time at my place for lots of services.

    While the main roads are fine, once you are on to the local road, there are still lots of snow like this. This is from this afternoon.

    Although I recommended the owner to use a specific route on approaching my place, his sat nav took him the other way that had lots of long steep slope covered in snow so I'm ...

    Finally, some of the parts started to arrive at my place after long delay caused by the recent snow.

    Iím still waiting for two more packages as well as the parts from local Honda but for now, the most significant bits are already here.

  4. Test Driving session

    by , 25-12-2010 at 03:00 PM (Today at Atelier Kaz - Private NSX Enthusiast, ex-Honda R&D engineer with F1, Indy/CART background)
    After driving my NSX on the snow yesterday, the road condition was better today so took it out on the road.
    This NSX was using Hankook evo V12 tyre with 15/16 combo and with original ABS.

    Compared to the AD08, it was bit scary to drive under freezing cold condition on these tyres and also once again it confirmed the advanatage of having the latest ABS.
    The latest one kicked in very quickly and also the response time was much quicker that it controlled the car very well compared ...

  5. My NSX on snow

    by , 24-12-2010 at 05:00 PM (Today at Atelier Kaz - Private NSX Enthusiast, ex-Honda R&D engineer with F1, Indy/CART background)
    For the first time after recent snow, driven my NSX on the snow.
    The main road was still bit icey but not too bad. The area around my village was still covered in thick snow but Yoko AD08 and OEM LSD did quite good job for climbing the slope.

    Once again, it confirmed the superiority of the latest ABS.

    Before heading out, I tested the car in front of my house where the road is no-through one. There was so much snow that it was so easy to lock the wheels and also felt ...
