  1. Some Weekend Canyon Runs in my FL5 After XPEL & Ceramic Coat

    Thanks for the report! Bright blue is a good choice to get folks to move over; I've found brightly colored cars force the issue better than dull ones, like mine. Damn the TPMS issue though; I still get that from time to time on my FK8 and as yet there has never been a low tire.
  2. Does it overheat? (The only thing that matters :) )

    This is, indeed, the question. The FK8 loses so much power on hot days as to piss a person off. I've had mine pull significant power on the street; granted running pretty hard on deserted twisties, but still. No other car I've owned has had such cooling issues. As for 'Any car overheats if you...
  3. 🙋🏻‍♂️ Media Launch Questions for savagegeese?

    Thanks for the info Rainy; good to know. Sounds like temp issues may be better, but not solved entirely. Perhaps good enough. We'll see. A 2015 PP1 Mustang had no such issues in heat, while running faster laps (was modded a bit; suspension and tires). Now, that may be because the 2015s didn't...
  4. 🙋🏻‍♂️ Media Launch Questions for savagegeese?

    The big thing will be if they fixed the cooling. Even on the road on an 85 degree day on a good twisty my FK8 was heating up and pulling power within 5 minutes (admittedly this was 9/10ths driving on a deserted road, but still, every other car I've had handled temps better). And of course the...
  5. 🤩 FL5 Type R Owner Review First Impressions! (after 270ish miles and counting)

    You are correct. 2023 overall tire diameter is 643mm, FK8 is 656mm. 2% smaller on the new car. If I'm reading it right, with the 6.5% numerically smaller final drive (taller) on the new car the overall gearing ends up about 4.5% taller net. Which, torque multiplication and drag racing aside...
  6. 2023 Civic Type R Parked up in Championship White (California)

    Journalists getting a hold of them yet? I'm sure it's embargoed for a while longer, but could they be starting to hand them out to the press?
  7. Can't decide between SI or Integra

    We had both on order, and the Si came in first. Tried the Integra out when the dealer got one in, and it is definitely a nicer car in a few ways but also another $7500 (that's the best they could do on trade). If it were for me, I may have considered it as I liked the extra features (seats and...
  8. Any of you “downgrading” to get into an FL5?

    Exactly this. I will say I still prefer RWD, but only a little. To follow on 007s post further, I have owned 3 Mustangs. A 2010 (4.6L), a 2014 5.0 and a 2015 Performance Pack. The 2014 and 2015 had KW V3 coilovers and a number of other chassis mods, wheels and tires, etc.. The 2010 had Konis and...
  9. Any of you “downgrading” to get into an FL5?

    Back to the OP comments, I test drove an M2 comp about a year into CTR ownership. It was a little odd getting back into the CTR and realizing the seats, steering, shifter, brakes and ride were all better in the Honda. And by 'better' in terms of the inputs, I mean the CTR is simply more...
  10. Type R owner age?

    47. I've had a 2019 for over three years now, and have a 2023 on order. I've had a lot of enthusiast cars over the past 30 years, but never one so universally complimented as my FK8. Which is especially odd since I find it not exactly beautiful myself. As many have said though, who cares. It's...
  11. How to buy Civic SI for MSRP?

    We 'ordered' our Si in early January, and it was scheduled to be produced in early July. As it happened, another customer cancelled when their identical one came in in late April, so we were able to get it 'early'. I think the production issues are getting a bit worse near-term, so YMMV. Also...
  12. PERRIN Accelerator Pedal Relocate

    Sorry, not on the forums a ton. If you look at the OEM throttle pedal, it is mounted on three studs. Actually, just go unclip the electronic connector and undo the three nuts and take the pedal off, and it'll all be very clear. Perrin gives you a couple spare nuts to thread onto the stud being...
  13. PERRIN Accelerator Pedal Relocate

    Nice part. I tried the competitors first, but indeed it positions the pedal too high relative to the brake pedal. Fine just tooling around town, but once you get deep into the brakes driving more aggressively your throttle is simply too high to reach easily with the outside of your foot. Then I...
