I have to say the new CTR looks incredible to me. I'm sure the lap time will be amazing and I honestly don't have much qualm about FWD, though it is a bit of a pill to swallow with a $40k+ car. But these bouncing shenanigans! I am not a fan! Does FK8 bounce around like that?

For example, at 1:10 I can see that sending you into the wall if you weren't 100% on top of it.

@1:10 video remark

Considering he was driving into that curve at 95mph. I'm amazed it stayed sunny side up. That is crazy hurdling fast into a corner like that. He was flying.

If you push it that hard on a track it will, suspension is probably on the hardest setting.

I'll see when it's revealed but I'd rather have the GRC at this point, I think it'll be more fun on the street, especially in snow. But since I have two kids the Type R might be a lot more usable.
