    Yes sir, I understand that bearings are not affected hardly by offset. I just meant it as an example and I sorta lumped it in there with the spacers. I should of differentiate more. :)

    that is a very subjective thing.

    the big spoiler imo completes the car and the fixes the weird roundness (?) that i see on the rear of the hatchbacks. To each his own though.

    They could also massively ramp up the spring and damper rates on the fronts (as well as the rears) to at least match the FK2 specs. Comfort be damned, this is a Type R. :)

    Yup. You basically hit the nail right on its head. The downforce under braking creates stability and less chance of fishtailing.

    ok, then for those who actually tracks their R, the bigger wing seems to a necessity then, and for street warriors, the smaller wing should suffice. But of course, I like big wing and every once in a while, I'll open it up. :)

    Actually, the big wing is the better option for DD in at least one way. It doesn't block your rear view visibility. :)

    Depends on the definition of a "street warrior" :p In any event, the bigger wing is going to pay off if you ever need to do an emergency brake (on or off track).

    ...and for that matter, what do we need over 300hp for daily driving? And what about those ridiculous Brembo brakes; who needs that much stopping power for DD? And those stupid 20 inch wheels? For daily driving?? Pffff... and don’t get me started on that ridiculously stiff suspension...who needs that for DD?....wait....we should’ve just bought LX’s.

    I like the removal of the big wing, but I feel the wing at the top of the rear window needs to be put back on like the regular Sport Hatch.
