Type r wannabe for 2015

Postby Mr. Go Slow » September 3rd, 2012, 9:15 pm

Simple question to the honda fans ...

Looking to get back something sporty and fun to drive.

I enjoy lightweight well balanced FWD cars and I've found that locally, a turboed car
can be more hassle to own / operate than it's worth ...

So is a type R (dc2/dc5) a relatively easy to own and operate in Trinidad in this day and age?
I realize that any DC5 will be 6 + years at least, DC2 worse yet ... What's a viable "fun" drivers car on the used car market?

Thanks

cant speak for a 5 but a 2 is easy and fun to own

just stay on top of your maintenance game

as for operating..you have to respect the car...learn the limits etc

Thank you for the feedback! That's because the dc2 was in the US, so parts easier to come by?

generally but there are a lots of minor differences with some parts..even between the different yrs as I learned the hard way :oops: :oops: :oops:

generally it's best to thoroughly research everything for differences before you purchase

also, stay away from buying cheap parts..really not worth the headache and extra money you'll have to spend

King you say ? The king is dead...

The hatch with the K20 that ran 13's had bolt ons and management in a stripped out hatch that only seemed to see the track.


Either way, can't go wrong with a dc2 or a dc5... dc5 is newer tho and should 'last longer' than the older dc2s

The newer civic models are great cars tho... not speed demons, but great car... so is the honda fit.

Many of the rsx parts can work on the dc5r but not all. It is also easy to get from america.

I actually prefer the 05-06 model

Real type R chassis have a few (difficult to describe) differences to the chassis itself (seams and bracing).

You should look at the chassis code on the dash and the engine front cross member under the hood... there should be a reference to the DC2 and 'R'
