Just behind the K-Tuned aluminum billet shifter, you can see that the wrapped side exit exhaust is still inside the cabin. You can also see the fire supression system. Over the years in Time Attack, James has added a significant amount of safety equipment into the Type R.
When James sent me this photo, I was left scratching my head. I wasn't sure what I was looking at …
It is the aluminum splitter mount and rub guard. This piece weighs 2.75 pounds and is milled from aluminum.
The cornering (3.3 G's) and braking (2.5 G's) G-Forces that the K-Tuned Type R attains are extreme. Acceleration is limited to the highly impressive rather than the extreme category – the car puts out 598 whp which in the world of Time Attack is no longer a high number.
