Last gen(2015-2017 euro spec) TypeR looks great. No idea what's wrong with Honda design.They could've just used that design.
Lap times listed below is some stock lap times driven by Tsuchiya/orido/gan-San in past 20 years on Tsukuba:
2014 Toyota GT86(FRS) 1:10
1998 dc2 integra TypeR 1:09
s2000 AP2 1:08
2007 FD2 civic TypeR 1:07
I'm only interested to see how fast new one could be.
