    I didn't want this car for the 0-60, but anything beyond what I wanted it for is a plus!

    Why would you apologize its good information on the car? I liked it, it was just their view and opinion. That's what this forum is about. It is a second post but that's ok. Thanks for posting.

    Its about what I expected at 3100lbs and nearly 300whp. It will sure be faster in the straight line than a RS, STI and R stock for stock.. I'd be happy with about 112mph trap. I think a turboback and a tune should be more than enough. Question is what kind of turbo does this engine have and does it have anymore room to push the air needed.

    Those numbers are excellent. Way better than I thought it was going to be. Good job honda. Making me regret not getting this over a WRX but maybe in a few years.

    I'd be disappointed if it couldn't run at least mid 13's.

    S2k were running mid to high 13's with a puny 240 hp.

    Let's not get crazy here.

    CTR will not smoke them, it will be close.

    RS will beat it off the line, rolling would be interesting. CTR will have the edge.

    to get a s2k to 13's requires some 6-7k clutch drops, I would never want to do on my own car.

    yeah I agree lol. It's not going to "smoke" either one of them.

    I rather see real life numbers over magazine produced numbers anyways.

    There are also intangible things that numbers and tests can't represent. Type R is a drivers car that requires real driving skills to extract the most out of. Majority people can jump in to a focus RS and drive it to its limit it because how much confidence it inspires from this awd and chassis. It really does make bad drivers look good. For most people that go to the track, Type R will be the better car as its more challenging to bring the best out of.

    Why not? I had an ITR and did 6-7k clutch drops all the time. Never had an issue with my vehicle.

    1. I don't live my life a quarter mile at a time.

    2. I have mechanical sympathy.
