Again not interested for the looks.

The information in Japanese is a little more full.

So it looks like other than the questionable looks side, there is an intake, exhaust, 1 way LSD, Braided Brake lines, Brake Pads, Suspension, fixed back race seat with 4 point harness, tail light with euro style sequential indicator, mats, gearbox bushing replacement. the other thing is they appear, though little information, to have rebuilt the engine.

The article stating it had the same power seems.. unlikely.

In my old DC2R build I used a lot of mugen parts, they were pricey but of very high quality back then, I hope they are still operating the same way.

Same with leaning towards a Spoon build. They haven't shown any body parts for the FK8 yet have they?
None except the SW388 wheels and I guess the FK7 spoiler counts too. They released their blue brake calipers for the FK7 though. Fingers crossed that an FK8 version comes soon (maybe even with slotted rotors if we're lucky).

Spoon has typically had a minimalistic approach to cosmetic mods in the past though with the exception of maybe the S2k.

yeah, I'm interested in the suspension. I had mugen suspension in the past and loved it.

On a closer look from some new photos by HondaPro Jason, all these Mugen bodykit lips are not direct replacement and instead it just stuck over the exiting carbon look factory lips :doh:

I’m not sure why, but it reminds me this and I’m sure that nature is the best proven inspiration that it works.

I saw spoons CF Hood, not released yet though, would be cool if they did a Front lip and maybe some mirrors for the FK8

They should just scrap the whole thing and start again, because it is fugly!
