So given all of the track time I have been abusing my S2000 with, I figured it was time to give the old girl a spa day, and invest in the long-term longevity of the car since I intend to ask much more of it in the future.
To outline what I intended to do:
- Change engine oil to Amsoil SAE 10W-30 Signature Series 100% Synthetic Motor Oil
- Change transmission gear oil to Amsoil Synthetic Synchromesh Transmission Fluid
- Change differential gear oil to Amsoil SEVERE GEAR 75W-90 Synthetic EP Lubricant
- Collect a sample of the liqui-moly oil in the pan for analysis after several track days of abuse
Ok so at this point we have crossed the rubicon. We have gone from mildly ameteur-ish wanna-be racers to fully amateur-ish wanna-be racers. We now have a tow vehicle.That means the same people who have built the rolling collection of bad ideas we call shitbox will soon be trundling down your local highway sporting a GVWR of over 10,000lbs (yep thats 5 zeroes, get outta my way bitches). Of course we COULD have just gone and bought any ol pickup truck, I hear good things about Fords eco-boost motor, but again what fun would THAT be, so here’s what we did……
Through proper alighment of the stars I had an opportunity to buy a lightly used 2000 Ford Excursion snow plow from Boston Mass. Yep you heard that right snow plow.
Ill say it again snow plow…..do you want to get out of my way yet.
Just imagine this in your rear view mirror:
