Honda has already said more Type R variants are coming. My thinking is you might see an AWD Acura version, but if it's 200 lbs heavier it may not be any faster.

It's the lighter car, and with no torque steer the FWD does not appear to be much of a limitation. And from all accounts it is the bettter daily driver than the Focus RS. Looks aside, there is not much to complain about.
This is a highly regarded car - it is placed ahead of the RS275 Trophy which was brilliant - unfortunately it wasn't available in the US. With the R, they have in effect, been able to more or less equalise the front drive shafts - the effect being negligible torque steer.

The static compression ratio is up around 9.8 (with 5PSI = 13.13 CR) - meaning the engine response will be excellent. Also its light (just over 3000lbs) and will handle like a go kart - winner. No issue with both 20 inch and in one instance 21 inch rears on track at all - tires have come a long way.

Basically you're right on the money.
