Honda Fit SEMA Preparation - FIT AS A FIDDLE

With the biggest show of the year just around the corner and what seemed like a billion commitments to fulfill, we had little time to crank out our Fit. Duke's fabbed up an insane rollcage, Hasport dropped in the ERL-built K20 motor, and the body shop had fitted (no pun intended) the Carbon Creations kit and implemented a crazy airbrush scheme. We're good to go, right? Wrong. Even after all of our sponsors did so much work on the Fit, we were still only about 25-percent ready for SEMA. And in terms of making it fully functional and race-prepped, we were even further than that. To make things worse, we didn't have a facility to work in. Luckily, Andy Yu was generous enough to let us "borrow" some space from the Zero 1000 USA warehouse. When Steve Wang from bBist dropped the car off at Zero 1000 for us, it was basically a painted shell, a motor and a thousand boxes of parts from HKS, Nitrous Express, Volk Racing, Koyo, Tein and hell...the list goes on and on.
