  1. which engine oil do you guys using?

    I thought this turbo is water cooled, because I see coolant water pipes connected to the turbo on front side.
  2. Chassis plastic plugs concern

    They sometimes use those holes to strap down the car on the trailer. With a hook or something. Nothing to worry about. Just check that it does not rust around that hole.
  3. OEM Black Lug nut solution for OEM CTR wheels. Cheap, Light!

    LOL, they look very similar to the FK2R OEM nuts. I have the opposite, left the black FK8 Honda nut, right the chrome OEM FK2R nut.
  4. First CTR Limited Edition on Track in Germany

    I am thinking about buying one just to find out the difference. I own a FK2 now.
  5. First CTR Limited Edition on Track in Germany

    In the video you can see that the LE is less understeered/more oversteered than the normal version. Corner 1 for example. Wheels and tires can be easily swapped. Is it possible that the LE version has -2 deg camber?
  6. First CTR Limited Edition on Track in Germany

    I used to have a DC2 without A/C and removed P/S. On the track it was a bit too hot. Real Type Rs don't have A/C and radio, that was the original philosophy. Removing A/C helps eliminating understeer a lot.
  7. Type R LE 0-290 km/hr

    This guy is able to reach 297 km/h with 420 HP.
  8. Type R LE 0-290 km/hr

    Tire size is the same: 245/30R20Y Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2.
  9. Type R LE 0-290 km/hr

    I think Honda has improved a few small things in the FK8 LE: - Less aero drag, small aero changes, this helps increasing the top speed. - Less weight (-47 kg Euro spec), lowers the drag at wheels etc. a little bit. - Less drag at engine because they removed the A/C + pulley. - Maybe increased...
  10. First CTR Limited Edition on Track in Germany

    He did the same with the normal edition FK8 and with the NSX. He knows the track very well.
  11. Type R LE 0-290 km/hr

    The same guy:
  12. CTR Clutch Delay Valve Removal

    I had the exact feeling, until I removed it.
  13. CTR Clutch Delay Valve Removal

    You are right about the original purpose of the valve. It should not do anything during clutch disengagement. But if you look at the valve itself, there is a tiny metal ball with a spring that is suppose to move when you press the clutch pedal. It still restricts the flow when pressing the...
  14. Two tire blow outs in a year

    BTW, did you get the correct version of the 245/30R20 Sport Contact 6 tire? There are 2 versions of them, one of them is Honda spec.
  15. Dealer said my brakes need to be replaced next visit. Is this a realistic quote??

    If you need new cheap but good brake rotors, get these https://www.bremboparts.com/europe/en/catalogue/honda-civic-x-hatchback-fc-fk-2-0-type-r-fk8/000127817-1 OEM quality (same Brembo) for $100 a piece. I think you can get them cheaper than $129...
  16. Two tire blow outs in a year

    These tires tend to melt at high temperatures. They are very soft.
  17. 2018 Type R Oil Change Info

    It does not matter that much. These 3 are close to each other. The best is to get a oil temp gauge and watch the engine oil temperature. Too bad the FK8 does not have one. The FK2R does have one built in. If the oil temperature never gets higher than 100 degC (212F), then 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30 are...
  18. 2018 Type R Oil Change Info

    It depends on the load, age and temperature. It is very naïve to say that your high quality 0W-20 doesn't sheer (never?). You can also find 0W-30 and 0W-40 oils that don't sheer (most of the time).
  19. 2018 Type R Oil Change Info

    My Honda dealer said 0W-20 is for the emission homologation. They advised me to use 0W-40 Castrol Edge. Sometimes I even use 10W-60 (track use). No problems ever. I use the same Castrol Edge in my DC2 and S2k. 0W-20 Honda oil type 2 is fine for normal use, you don't HAVE to use something else...
