I'm Selling My S2000 - One Last Ride


I join ChrisFix, EricTheCarGuy, Humble Mechanic, and Matt Maran Motoring for one final road trip in my Honda S2000. This is all thanks to Shell for sponsoring the video and getting all of our cars together!
I bought my Honda S2000 in 2016 and I've loved it ever since. The car has been used for over forty videos, whether it's a DIY on how to change the oil or transmission fluid, to tests on various tires and brake packages, to modifications like a torsen limited slip differential with higher gear ratio, centrifugal supercharger, or titanium exhaust. The car's in a perfect spot, and partially, that's why I'm selling it. Any further might be past the point of no return, and where it sits is a very good package. The car has run its course on this channel, and though I love it dearly, I'm ready for the next project.
A huge thank you to Shell for sponsoring this video, coinciding with the release of the latest formula of their premium fuel, Shell V-Power NiTRO+. This latest formula is designed to protect against gunk, wear, corrosion, and friction. I've quite enjoyed using the fuel in my S2000, and it was a blast going for one last road trip with all of my favorite NOlocal friends.

    Since you were learning to modify your S2000 you should pick up a Saturn Ion Redline. It's already supercharged, and there are a lot of different things you can do to make the vehicle your own. Also it's a rare and unique looking vehicle.

    I like this whole video, however @ 6:10 got my attention for a good reason. Even though I'm mostly on the "Electrical" side of technology, I was a factory trained electrical/electronics technician for almost 11 years along with earning an AS ET degree. The whole experience was VERY "hands-on" and I became very proficient at diagnosing and/or modifying many electrical/electronics systems for a long time so much that... when I went back to school for a BS EET, the less "hands-on" the education became. I then earned a full BS EE degree, which was almost entirely "math calculations" with a small amount of lab experience. My MS EE and PhD studies were only "hands-on" at times because I had to seek out the means to practically test what I was designing. With that mentioned, most universities have sophisticated "workshop/test/protoyping" areas when needed, but my experiences lended mostly to completing the "theoretical" requirements, which again limited my "hands-on" and diagnostic skills previously practised. In summary, my experience as a "technican" was primarily "hands-on" due to the diagnostic and practical nature of the work requirement, yet the "engineering" experience is primarily "design oriented." Of course there's overlapping knowledge and practice between the areas, but there's quite a bit of distinction between the two areas of practice. Just my few cents that I thought to put out here.

    I've had my S2000 for 14 years. I've tracked it and taken it to Streets of Willow... Then I got a Tesla Model 3 AWD performance. You really have to own one to know the difference it makes. I'm still on the fence about selling the S2000 myself, but I understand your decision. The S2000 was a marvel of engineering and then Tesla changed the game. For now, I think I'll be keeping the roadster for a little while. Can't let it go.

    Well to be honest you did kinda ruin it by adding a supercharger like some 12 year old coming down from a NFS game. All other modifications I agreed with and liked. But modifying one thing that made this car the best and Honda proud, the engine. That was a bad move.
