new CTR is so maintaining its position as the fastest accelerating front-drive hatchback in the land.

Article on TOV


SO JDM DC5-R is no longer fastest FWD :eek:
Thats the UK CTR. The JDM version is faster then the UK version, but weighs a little more. The JDM DC5R is by far the fastest front wheel drive hatchback. It weighs less then the UK or JDM CTR, has more power and possibly better gearing. I know it's better geared then the UK CTR, but I'm not sure about the JDM CTR. I don't think they mean it's the fastest CTR on the planet, but in UK. Japan always gets the faster versions.

your are probally right..since uk doesn't get dc5-r but (maybe you are wrong)
I'm 100% sure the JDM DC5R is the fastest FWD NA 4cyl hatchback on the market right now. The UK EP3R and JDM EP3R are probably close in terms of performance, but the JDM DC5R just blows them away. Remember, the EP3R has the same engine as our RSX-S, it just weighs less then us and has the DC5R final drive combined with the RSX-S gearing. Less weight and more power, it's pretty much over for the EP3R.
