Easily one of my favorite aspects of the car: the wheels. (Inspired by @kazuo_wfc, but his set up is much more wild and fitment tight like a devout nun) 📸: me
======================================== Advan RG-D2, 18x9.5 +35, Hankook RS-4 255/35 lowered on Swift’s. Fenders intact and uncut. No rubbing even in the canyons (has rubbed a little when the car is loaded with 4 adults and I hit a big dip on the freeway).
Went to scope out this photo spot near the LA river for a shot of the LA skyline. There were actually a few other guys there already taking photos so I had to use this angle with the radio tower photobombing my shot. Still turned out okay, I think 🤔 also, Adobe Lightroom is a game changer .
The new CTR's electronic damping is very much geared towards comfort. At its firmest +R Mode setting, things do get pretty hard especially through the hills of Genting as it ever so gently hop at the limit when conquering even the gentlest bumps and dips.
Upon clocking more KMs, it becomes clear the new CTR is more inclined to daily driveability and not full on lap times. Which is a huge revelation considering the Type-R heritage and how the recent hot hatches have favoured performance over plushness. For example, even the AMG GLA 45, a jacked up, hot hatch crossover can get unbearably dramatic, even harsh in its suspension department despite being a luxury product.
A couple more FK8R clips coming up!

A New Type of R - The new FK8 CTR feels progressive. It has grown up, it is much more approachable, not necessarily accessible, definitely more liveable with, is incredibly practical and looks super savage which I personally like a lot. It is a new Type-R candidate that can finally hang out with top European hot hatches in terms of performance and social standing, which its JDM-bred NA older brothers never could.
It is so mature now, everything seems muted. There’s no noise, no drama, no personality and above all, no sound. All you hear are turbo whoosh and kapishes, which is kinda nice but that’s about it. What feels very different but strangely familiar is the new CTR’s long 7,000rpm rev range. Different because competing rivals don’t rev that far and familiar because it literally feels like a turbocharged K20A, but muffled.
