2018 VA WRX STI,
Track test drive presented by HondaCars野崎 and a Super GT & Super Formula driver Tomoki Nojiri



The outside Temp is constant 22°c, intake air temp is about 50° when driving. He started getting into +R mode at 9:05 ( water temp:87°c/oil temp:99 °c), and start to push the car by few laps.

At 15:10, he turned off VSA and try to push again, and the water/oil temp raised to 98/116°C
IIRC, the cooling performance is increased by 8.8% according to the Official Fact Book, also there are improved intercooler and enlarged radiator, increased intake channel diameter(Increased intake air flow rate +10%)

I think the car sounds good. Hope that isn't pumped in.

Sounds nice on the inside. I love how the normal mode gauge cluster just looks normal, too. No nonsense.

2021 Civic Type R FK8
I was wondering if a thread like this would pop up….Just as I thought!

Here’s a screenshot of a test drive event.

What appears to be after about 4 laps in 32 deg weather.

Coolant temp 105 deg c
Oil temp 138 deg c

I guess if it peaks and maintains around 100/130 mark it might be ok with modern synthetics?

2018 VA WRX STI,
Keiichi Tsuchiya lap of Sodegaura circuit

BTW, DK's fastest lap time of facelifted FK8 is 1:16.33, with OE continental SC6, and the car is for media use so he said the tire is getting worn out.
