FEEL's FD2(s)

For the past few weeks I've been on the hunt for a new Type-R to post with that extremely aggressive style that I'm ever after. But when it comes to the FD2, there really aren't that many of them surfacing that truly exude what I'm looking for. So while I was searching for this Mugen RR that I came across the other day and mistakenly didn't save the photos [it was lowered, different wheels, canards, other added aero, etc.], I randomly fell upon some blogger coverage of a recent Honda Twin Cam meeting. I immediately/anxiously started to click through the different galleries posted looking for the circuit-prepped FEEL's FD2 demo car.

Honestly, I haven't seen much, if any, coverage of this car since TAS09, which is a shame because it stood out as one of the most in-your-face FD2's out then. And when I Heart Honda came around, unfortunately FEEL's didn't. Thankfully it was seen/captured here with it's practical street version twin, which was equipped with a full interior, different mirrors/headlights, and a completely different FEEL's goodie package under the hood.

Here's a video of them lapping Tsukuba (complete with intense music!):

And here are some photos of the FEEL's pair from that day at Tsukuba:

Seriously, other than the shaved taillights, which still semi-get to me, these are my favorite FD2s out there so far. But, I'd still like to see something compete with it. Perhaps a full demo version come from MAX Racing? Or better yet, RS-K? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Odyssey Mondays

I know you're dying for the next ODMO, and you want me to post/update more.

Since there isn't a lengthy post on any one particular H-badged van this week, here are a few from battle-spec to subdued that might tickle your fancy:

And this week there will be more posts back on target (not only ODMOs -- haha), guaranteed. So don't hate (Tym/3L/etc.), I felt like taking a vacation.

Peace, love and prosperous summers to all,
And good luck to all the Risky Devil fam heading out to ASB this week!
Go big, or don't come home. Muhahahaha.

Odyssey Mondays

Before the crazy butterscotch bronze paint it was a vibrant red -- here are a few shots from the original build and what it used to look like:
