Looking to see how the CTR performed under normal track conditions with Tuning upgrade ( Hondata, KTuner, etc) with a few bolt ons like exhaust and dp. Heating issues have been a concern, I suspect that may be even more exaggerated with additional hp and torque.

I'd love to tune the car, but only after confirming that a radiator upgrade and oil cooler would be necessary for track use. Not even sure that would do the trick. Not raining on anyone's parade, but would hate to have the thing overheat on the track after one lap, or even on the street driving it somewhat aggressively.

Thanks JH. Heat soak early in stock trim. Can't imagine adding a tune at this point until a radiator upgrade and oil cooler. I'll wait to see feedback after everyone experiments with their car.......Hoping there's a standardized solution.

An upgraded oil cooler is our 1st recommendation for the FK8.
