The stock suspension is a tad too floaty even on the "Sport" model. It's adequate for a street car, but sub-par for track usage. Some lowering springs, a beefier rear sway bar, some good rubber and upgraded pads and brake fluid would definitely improve it's track presence though.

I seen this mentioned a lot and ever since been considering getting an aftermarket coiilover system. My budget does allow for going at high as KW Suspension but I might settle for something entry-level from brands like Tein. Even springs alone MIGHT do it for me, but adjustable dampening is attractive!

I'm going to pull the trigger on the H&R 1.2" springs probably within the next week or two. Not that the Accord has a huge wheel gap, but it'll look soooo much better dropped a little and I think it'll also tighten up the handling characteristics a bit.

Just make sure you're prepared for the break in period because springs (from my experience) take at least a couple weeks of regular driving to finally set in.

Looking forward to seeing your setup once installed if you plan on posting pictures.

Yeah , Sport will need some tweaking - I Don't believe everything Test Driver or Care & Driver stated - like the Brake Pads were gone in 10 Laps , more Like They just
Over Heated the Brake Fluid Boiled some out of a Boot which got on the Pads .. , Hence the Change of Pads and Move Up to Dot 4 . .

What I found Interesting thou was the Difference in Wheel Stance - Width on Sport is Narrower - I have seen this before on some other models , but generally was other way around ..
That said , these Spec's Printed in Mag Rags aren't always Correct . I have Looked into Spacers 3-4 mm , but I think just wait to
I'll get Rims Later with Better Offset . .

I think there is a good chance that owners of the Sport will start placing new springs as more options become available. I personally wouldn't drop it by more than an inch or so, especially if its going to be a year round vehicle.

Lighting Lap - make Honda look like **** !
Guy wasn't Pulling the Steering wheel back to Stop inside Tire from Spinning ( Plainly on 2 Turns )
Did this in Heat of the Day and after the Brakes , Tires were cooked ~ to Boot I Bet the Tire Pressures were Not High enough in the Front . .

I'd like to see a few Owners form this or other Sights Go up to this Track and Lay Down some Numbers , way better then Car and Drivers - BS - Test !

He's getting on the Brakes Way to Early - which is real plain to see in Video , just look at some of the others . . Lighting Laps and Watch 20 other Cars ~ Then ~
You'll Know what I saying . .
