HISTORY, STORY, EXPERIENCE, COMMENTS
Bought new in Nov 2020 to replace my previous car (JDM FD2-Honda Civic Type R) - registered in Singapore, Jan 2021.

Car is a Championship White, right-hand drive, UKDM model. Serial number: R-38800

It made 292-WHP after being tuned with just a PRL Intake and Intercooler, before any exhaust modifications. Smaller but wider 18-inch ADVAN GT wheels helped to shave weight, and allowed wider 265-width tires for added mechanical grip. AP Racing Pro 5000R big brake kit replaces the factory Brembo as an upgrade. Tein Mono Racing Coilovers and Hardrace components allowed custom height, damping, and alignment set-ups to be dialed-in.

A huge effort was spend on trying to allieviate the overheating-issue during lengthened, hard-driving. Thus, twin-radiators, twin-oil coolers, and other misc-mods are put in place.

On Streets, it presently frequents local B-Roads and Touges more. Having previously been used for Expressway and Highway runs, but prone to succumbing to heat-soak.

Car has seen three track-days at Sepang International Circuit, KL, Malaysia. Even in scorching daylight with 33-34 degree celsisus ambient temperature, it's capable of clocking one complete hot-lap at maximum attack. A consistent mid-2:30s car on SIC, it clocked a PB of 2:34.139.
