Feel's FD2 Civic Type R and FG2 Civic Si (pt 1)
These are Feel's modded FG2 Civic Si and FD2 Civic Type R. Drift racers
Orido Manabu and Taniguchi Nobuteru drive both cars and give their
impressions of their differences.
I slapped on the translations myself, so they're not pro or anything.
The cars have modded suspension, upgraded pads, upgraded titanium
(half-titanium on Si) mufflers, but no engine mods. CTR has more mods,
including an upgraded ECU, SS brake lines and clutch lines.

Honda automobile Type R models are special performance editions of their
respective model families.
The design of Type R models was originally focused on race conditions, with
an emphasis on minimizing weight, and maximizing performance potential
(e.g. engine tuning, suspension set-up). Thus, Type R models were first
conceived for racetracks. However, due to Honda's increased focus on their
highly regarded VTEC engines, the Type R was eventually designed for a much
Type R vehicles traditionally have a red Honda badge and championship white
paint as an option, as a tribute to their first winning F1 car. Honda's
racing and F1 cars often feature a red Honda badge.
Honda produced a very limited number of NSX Type R in 1992 for Japan. Major
changes include a more aggressive suspension and an extensive weight
reduction to 1230 kg from the normal NSX weight of 1350 kg. The NSX Type R
was track oriented and, to reduce weight, lacked sound deadening, audio,
electric windows and air conditioning. The NSX type R's role was fulfilled
by the NSX type S Zero in 1997.
The Honda Accord Type-R (ATR) was produced from 1998 to 2003 using the CH1
Accord chassis and sold in UK/EU markets, the JDM Accord Euro-R uses the
CL1 chassis, Using a naturally aspirated 2.2-litre four-cylinder DOHC H22A
VTEC motor which produces 220 bhp (220ps)and the EDM was (212ps) @ 7,200
rpm and 164 lb·ft (222 N·m) @ 6,700 rpm. The Type-R Accord model is
differentiated by a number of sporting features including, but not limited
to, stiffer suspension and chassis, Torsen limited-slip-differential,
twin-piston brakes, dual Exhaust
system, 17-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, Recaro seats and a
leather-trimmed Momo steering wheel. As an option, there was a distinctive
tall and functional rear spoiler wing that most costumers opted for.
The Civic Type R models were preceded by the 1990--1991 EF9 Civic SiR
hatch, and the more recent EG6 and EK4 SiR and SiR-II Civic hatchback
models. The Civic SiR featured the same 160ps B16A DOHC VTEC engine as
introduced in Honda's popular Integra XSi hatchback a year earlier. With
the top of the line Civic model at the time (the famous Civic GTi) only
available on the New Zealand market the Civic SiR was the best available to
most markets and found huge popularity in Japan and around the world.
Fitted with an optional LSD, power windows, A/C and power steering, they
proved to be sporty. Unfortunately, the Civic SiR never found the same
success in racing as the Integra due to the soft chassis of the EF9 model.
The latter EG6 SiR-II had all the same luxuries as the EF9 model, with a 10
hp (7 kW) increase for the B16A engine and a marginally stiffer chassis,
this time in a larger heavier body shell. The 1998 EK9 Civic was the first
to be given the Type R badge. Based on the EK4 SiR chassis it featured a
Type R prepared B16B engine producing 185 PS (182 hp), stiffer chassis,
upgraded sway bars and strut bars, Recaro alcantara seats, 15-inch alloy
wheels and a large boot spoiler. Since then, most generations have offered
a Type R variant. The Type R version of the Civic has never been sold
outside of Japan until the introduction of the 2nd generation chassis.
