    Finally had a closer look at the pics and indeed the 2020 front grill does look a bit bigger and more open, Would be nice to know if it works for track use before buying one. Also good to know if it is a drop in fit for the 2017-2019 cars and are there any other things done to get the "improved cooling" for the 2020 car.

    That grill won’t show any improvement for tracking the car. There are important things like an oil cooler and such first. I’ve added a completely open grill, oil cooler and other things and still overheat

    You have to wonder how the factory made TCR race cars manage to be successfully cooled. Is it just the hood vents or do they have a bunch of other tricks ? Power is not much different than the stock cars.

    And yet, still dual tip unfortunately.

    Regarding the suspension, is it just the front low control arm that’s changed? I’m considering swapping to either RV6 or Whiteline, but if the new OEM version adds positive caster, I’d consider it.

    It’s way more open. I think one of the biggest issues is how tight everything is and the intercooler and AC condenser blocks like 90% of flow to the radiator. Remove all the BS in the engine bay to open things up. Remove AC and you’re doing well.

    He says, having traded in his Type R for an American car.

    Honda USA's 2020 Type R hype page has them on there, so yes. No LaneWatch or mention of functional proximity sensors, though.

    You should remove the 2017 TypeR from your list of cars under your avatar. Maybe the pic too. Jussayin.

    while I don’t care at all, it is odd to sell the car and keep coming around. Sellers remorse?

    Probably gets tired of the "my car is broke" posts on Ford forums. LMAO

    Half the people in this forum don't own one.
