This time needs to be removed again.

....because the car was not in production spec and didn't have production tires.

The tires were prototype (not approved, yet) but once the tire is approved, Honda will go back and set another time that (they hope) will be just as good or better.

Even HONDA doesn't count the time at this point based on the wording of the press release but Honda did say that they will return with a production spec car and approved tires to get the record.

The Type R's time is not legit because it was set on a car that is NOT the same as what is sold. The Type R had the a/c removed, radio removed, and front passenger seat removed. The car is sold with all of those things included.

-too lazy to re-type the same thing over and over.
