    Yes, the whole car was street legal and all engineered. It's just a Cusco Safety 21 cage. It helped alot with rigidity. The DC chassis is like cardboard.

    Best FWD setup as a whole. It's the definately the best FWD car (Not sure if Megan R26 counts). The chassis is based of old Civic chassis, and is horrible. You only really notice when you strip away the roll bars and strut bars etc.

    DC2R's need a rear sway bar, fender braces and if you aren't putting in a cage then you need a floor room bar. Don't need a c-pillar brace, these do nothing lol.

    This shit quality chassis must be the reason why the Type R hasn't won any best FWD drivers car awards, and hasn't seen any acclaim in any magazines.

    Must definately be why it has a shit following in the US too.

    If you like cardboard chassis's, then good for you.

    I did mention it has the "Best FWD setup as a whole" - reason why it's won best FWD awards etc etc. Go drive a FD Civic, you'll easily be able to see why the DC Chassis is shit. DC2R's are the best though, I miss mine so much!
