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.

Check:
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.

Evan, good point. I guess I don't follow Import Tuner much. haha. Here's a link proving you correct.

BUT, notice the car is equipped with quite a few different items in the rear (taillights, wing, etc.) and also... how many videos did the cover of Import Tuner provide you?

Lighten up a bit, especially for your first comment. It seems like all the wrong people are so quick to hate these days. Thanks for the love man.

no hate. just putting out a fact.
awful quick to judge things typed out on a computer... i guess the ellipses at the end of the sentence could make it seem dickish. my bad.

and the one with the diff. wing and tail/trunk setup is their "street" tuned car. ( street car only has outer lights, track has both inner and outer [with "eye lids"])
the time attack car is completely different. in that first video at tsukuba you can see it has the regular tail lights and carbon trunk at 4:54.

not trying to "hate", just sharing correct info.
