Hi guys just thought we would introduce ourselves as we have put a deposit down on a type r and picking her up on Saturday she is a beaut

Just finished modding my beast of a v8 so looking forward to getting my hands on the type r :twisted:

Love the sound of em and found a one that's well equipped so a good start! Enjoy

FRS is short for Fast Road Set Up. It involves using camber bolts on the front struts and shims on the rear hubs to adjust wheel geometry in favour of handling, grip and feel.

My opinion when I had it done - http://www.civinfo.com/forum/torque-developments-international-north-south/69081-massive-thanks-very-happy-customer.html

And a little detail about what's involved - http://www.civinfo.com/forum/torque-developments-international-north-south/58243-insight-into-frs.html

Looks good I'd like to experience being in someone's type r that's had this done before doing it though

I found that although grip was improved, it also made the car feel a lot more stable and responsive in the bends, but from the drivers point of view.

Maybe if you had a quick drive of someone's FN2 who's had it done, that would be better. Although there aren't many people, if any, who don't rate the FRS.

Hello fellow Geordie!

I have a FRS and can wholeheartedly agree that it's the best mod you have aside from a civinfo sticker!

Seriously. It makes the car twice as good.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys

My mate also has a FN2 type R so im sure we will both come to one of the meets to flush out what mods to do :p

How much are you looking at for an FRS?
