To be fair, it's a low treadwear tire that was driven on track and definitely driven with some gusto when on the street.A whopping 10k miles. So every oil change is a tire replacement
Around a track? I'm not sure. I don't consider myself a good driver, but I do alright. My buddy has had more track time than me for sure, but I wasn't able to walk away from him as much as I would have expected, even just straight line stuff.Too bad they're so ugly.
So is it faster than the golf R?

The limiting factor would be the fwd more than anything. 306 is about all you'll ever get out of that drivetrain without things getting messy. Haldex on the R allows you to basically brute force as much power as you want on that thing.Mod for mod, doesn't the type R blow up sooner?
Yeah, it really is a beast of a machine. Obviously the money didn't go into the interior or materials but the stock seats feel amazing. You don't even think they will be that good until you sit in them. The density of the foam is perfect. It's not like recaro foam hardness, but not regular civic softness. They found a good medium. The chassis is way more competent than a GTI or Golf R, and the brakes are great. I know bc my friend has a Golf R and Type R and I've had some decent seat time in both modded and stock CTRs. Still, the Golf platform is a better do everything car, but the Type R is more of a performance machine.I've seen near to 500hp with headwork and maxing out the stock turbo and fueling. Honda builds great engines. This was on a track car, so fwd traction is less of a concern as it would be on a street car. Honda brought their A game.
