I have a 2002 Honda S2000, 6-speed manual transmission. Roadmaster (and no one else that Iíve found) makes a tow plate for it.
The user manual says it is not towable except all 4 wheels off the ground. I canít understand why. Iíve come across a couple of internet references to people towing one 4-down with no problem. The warranty is long ended, so voiding the warranty is not an issue for me. But I still have misgivings about perhaps damaging it by towing.
Can anyone here share their experience towing a Honda S2000?

Agree with others, that just because it has a manual trans does not mean it can be towed four down. It has to do with the lubrication of the trans, and with the output shaft turning, but not the input shaft, it can cause issues with the bearings. Some manual trans are OK, some are not.
My suggestion is to get on a S2000 specific forum and ask the question there, as they should be able to say if this is an issue for real concern or not. It depends on the trans design; and the forum specific folks would have the best knowledge.
