I had in interesting incident with my newly acquired (used) second R1 yesterday. I got hit, not too hard at all, from the side, and that sheered off both front body mounts basically in the same spot. About mid-way between the bumper and the top of the mounts, like someone ran a laser across them. My other R1 has been hit MANY times and much harder, never an issue. So, I'm not sure if Spec-R has different batches of plastic or if I just had the prefect hit, but I found that very weird.

Of course now I have to find a TC setup for this second R1. It's a whole different ball game from VTA.
