It's possible down the road, I'm on the fence about it though, I know its good, I'm just not a fan of worrying if its filled or not and or having to fill it lol I'm lazy

Ok guys, got the 27Won rear motor mount installed! Car feels great! Yes, it does have alot of vibration and some harshness under acceleration but that is great for me since I love the feel the car, it can be useful for detecting if something goes wrong that the sensors don't get. It has calm down alittle bit after 300 miles ( I drove alot ot see if it would and it did lol).l Regardless it did exactly what I wanted. It majorly helped with wheel hop from a dig! Beautiful product from 27Won, almost feel bad for it never being seen again til you lift the car haha Also got a sticker from them as well :D

Went to the drag strip Friday night after I installed the rmm. I made 2 passes (it was crowded as fuck). The first run was a 15.1 qt time, which then turned out their system had a bug and needed to be rebooted. The second run was a good one at 14.2 ( pic posted below). I feel like I did good for my first time driving a FWD manual car down the strip ( i'm use to autos for drag racing). I'll be practicing alot to help my times and get the technique down. My tires didn't like the track too much so I did wheel hop just a tad in first gear, I'll be getting a different set of wheels and tires for racing only when I can. All in all not the fastest times but from what the track was telling me, it was the second fastest stock CTR run they've had since 2018.

Track data:

Air temp: 89 degrees F high humidity
Track Temp: Couldn't get a read as too many people were there at the time
Tire Pressure: 22psi front and 32psi rear
Launch RPM: 3000rpm
Tire Warm-up: None
Time between runs: approx. 30mins
Prep: no prep used

(the left side car was a 2018 gt mustang with exhaust and intake, he has never ran before at the track, if you wanted to know)

This thread is now dead. Type R has been flooded in the recent floods in southeast Texas. Yall are more than welcome to use the list and create an ultimate drag type r. Someone needs to sow the world that type r's can be drag monsters lol

Your Type R was damaged by the flood waters?? So very sorry to hear that man. Hope car insurance will cover the full cost for replacement and everyone is ok down there.

Sorry to hear the bad news, that totally sucks. But I agree, I can't wait to see a built FK8 reel everything in. Who's stepping up to the plate?
