Pick Ups: (Not Mine) Spoon Axle +Spoon Toe Arms

I’m lucky enough to have crazy friends with crazy taste that let me live vicariously through them, it is what sets them apart from a majority of other enthusiasts in my opinion. They are willing to take it to that extra degree that some others would think is superfluous and not a necessity.

My buddy Areen with his crazy Spoon’ed out S2000 picked up some parts for his car……

Legit Spoon Sports axles! How many of these are floating around in the USA?  I’m betting you these are the only ones in the USA…..

What makes these different than normal axles you say? Quoted from the Spoon EU Website….

“The importance of a reliable driveshaft is often overlooked in endurance racing to street applications. The standard Honda units do not lack strength themselves, the troubles and failure of the driveshafts are often the finishing quality. Slight pitting can occur on the contact surfaces, which under high heat deteriorate which then cause vibrations and failure.

The Spoon drive shafts are standard Honda units that have been disassembled then reworked and reassembled by Spoon technicians. Each contact surface has been polished and finished to exacting standards and then the components are matched during assembly to ensure the highest tolerances.

This ensures a smooth power delivery and reliable service ”

TLDR: Spoon takes the axles apart and micro polishes the bearings and repacked it with high quality grease…..

I blanked out the serial number because Areen paid good money for these and the last thing I want to see is the number being knocked off….

He Also picked up a SPOON REAR CONTROL ARM KIT….. Basically the Bump Steer kit for the S2k made by Spoon…. What sets these apart from other companies that have released the same type of component? These are made from Steel instead of aluminum, which makes these more reliable and stronger…..

Details like this is what sets his Spoon build apart from other Spoon builds….. He’s also a big fan of ASM, so the car will never really be a complete catalogue car…..

Speaking of insane enthusiasts with an eye for quality. Dallas have been building this VW Rabbit Diesel Truck…. I love how he added legit Volk CE28n to his build and an exhaust system that was worked on by none other than Hytech…..

Of course a shot of my car too! The undertray of my Amuse R1 Bumper is getting more and more scraped as the driveways in LA are angled very steep….
