  1. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    His wikipedia entry has a good summary of his racing career from the 60s and 70s, and he was also a development driver for the NA1 NSX. At NSXPO, he told us a story about doing Nurburgring laps in the prototype NSX, coming in where engineers would weld in chassis reinforcement, then going back...
  2. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    Yes, i noticed a couple of YouTubers at the event saying they are driving Cup 2 tires. Basically Honda is endorsing them for track events.
  3. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    Of course, my nickname is because I"m a Kurosawa Motoharu fan. :) Regarding the temperature, I saw a peak of 115 deg just before Spoon corner on the second hot lap. It went back down quickly, so I'm not super concerned. That LE was going pretty hard also. I'm impressed by that guy, but he...
  4. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    Whoops, sorry, my mistake. At first I thought his conversation at the beginning was with someone in the car but I now see that it was a guy outside the car. He also talks later when he's driving to the sad paddock, but I guess he was talking to the camera?
  5. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    Nice to see Nakaya still doing his stuff! I remember the olden days when the F355 was doing 2:38 around Suzuka and that was pretty good. We have to remember that Nakaya has a passenger in the car with him, so you have to consider that in his lap times. (I was mistaken.)
  6. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    That seems like a slightly conspiratorial take on it. When you say they “later admitted” the weight adjustment, that makes it sound like they first tried to hide something and were later forced to say it. In actuality, the roll cage and Cup 2 tires were in the official press release. They were...
  7. FL5 Type R is last one?

    Agree. I think this is the thing I'm waiting for. You look at current EVs, they're all 5000 lbs. insane land tanks that go super fast in a straight line. It's so counter to the sports car philosophy of lightness, agility, and handling. I'm ok with a semi heavy sports car (like a GT-R or NC1...

    You're throwing around generalities making it sound like most recycling is a waste of time, but recycling is not all negative. Steel, aluminum, glass, most metals are far easier to recycle than to dig up from ground and extract from ore. People steal copper because it has such value in the...

    The money and power go both ways, meaning the fossil fuel industry also. You can't point at one side and not also point at the other side's loooong history of political and geopolitical power and huge money. Building out cell phone networks is actually quite a lot of time and money. Many years...
  10. Drift King and the 2023 Civic Type R

    I came here to post this video but I saw it's already posted. Tsuchiya was so happy with the car. He did say in +R mode the stability control still kicked in so I wonder if there is some special thing you need to do to disable it. He did say the stability control is more advanced than the FK8. I...

    I agree with you that very little recycling is profitable. Plastics, for example, are a famous failure of the market to address a need since the environmental and recycling cost is not factored into their prices. The result is, it's cheaper to make new instead of recycle. The thing is, this is...
  12. FL5 Type R is last one?

    You say that as if the fossil fuel industry isn't also completely political and has tons of politicians in their pockets and also spends billions on PR campaigns. The whole point is that while a lot of electricity is generated using fossil fuels now, it doesn't HAVE to be generated that way...

    So can someone explain what 30% of materials in an EV are not recyclable? Like what kind of materials are contained in one that are chemically infeasible to reprocess? After all, they were processed in order to make the materials in the first place. Those same materials will now be in higher...
  14. JDM FL5 Civic Type R Owner's Manual; Rev Match OFF+ specified Oil/Fluid capacity

    I was staring at the fuzzy text where the cooling improvements are outlined. My kanji reading sucks but this is what I think it says: Radiator inlet is 48% larger. Water pump pulley size changed to increase water circulation by 10%. Radiator core area was enlarged to improve cooling 8.8%. Fans...
  15. In-depth Civic Type R LogR Data Logging Impressions (In Japanese only)

    "Clutch mete" comes from "to mete" as in letting something happen in a measured and controlled way. Log R gives you scores based on how smooth you drive. The driver in the video is the guy who drove in the Suzuka lap record video, according to their comments.
  16. USDM 2023 Civic Type R to Feature Glossy Seat Backs

    Yes. Honda pls release the car and build 100,000 so it is sold below MSRP!
  17. USDM 2023 Civic Type R to Feature Glossy Seat Backs

    Interesting point, as @Toprarnen says. Bearing more weight means they would need to either 1. Increase ride height so that the springs have room to compress more with the higher load. The front would need to be raised to match, and all this would change aerodynamics and handling for the worse...
  18. Things we've spotted from the Type R videos

    Here's something interesting... In this video with a journalist during the press event, he clearly says in May 2022, they've already done a timed run at the Nurburgring and they'll release the time in due course. About time index 20:30. He also notes at 7:10 that the fenders are pre-rolled, as...
  19. 316 HP / 310 lb-ft Power Figures Leaked For FL5 2023 Civic Type! (via Brochure)

    Sorry I messed up the formatting trying to post from my phone but according to Wikipedia: So as a company it’s just not worth making a separate version.
  20. 316 HP / 310 lb-ft Power Figures Leaked For FL5 2023 Civic Type! (via Brochure)

    Also worth noting that if you bring a car the other direction--into California, they will check that it's got the factory CA emissions certification plate in the engine bay when you go to register it. So it's just easier for us consumers if we can count on the cars being compatible with all the...
