Still by far the best looking widebody kit available for this car IMO, although early on people got tired of it because it was popping up everywhere with not many other options besides lip kits. It actually looks a lot better on the Twins then it does on the GT-R 35

While there are a lot of them, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. When I get my twin, it's either this or the Varis regardless of how many people have them on. It REALLY suits the car IMO

Sweet RB feature!

Even though people say it's getting played out, it's one of my favorite kit out there.

Varis any day over this bunny fad. This kit has become way to popular.

Cool write up. But if it was to be a functional wide body. I think quite easily Varis takes the cake!

Agreed, in terms of function Varis will always be #1 but sometimes the look of your car changes the entire way you feel about it. I'm a function over form guy MOST of the time, but sometimes you have to make an exception.

The RB does have some decent aero on the V2 with the front diffuser, it's functional to some extent.

In any case, the story behind the RB was pretty amazing and we wanted to do a little write-up on it just because we were really impressed with it

We're going to have a Tommy Kaira blog out soon which is full of really awesome facts that I didn't even know about them. Look for it next week!

RB Kit with any paint or even plasti-dip to hide the rivets and no spoiler, is a winner.

I actually like the rivet look, and the spoiler will be needed if they are building a race car

To each their own, it really depends on what you want the end result to be. With Advan tires with the white writing, roll cage, etc. the rivet look is perfect -- pure function and race appeal.

Otherwise, getting a really seamless look is awesome with a duckbill trunk and nice rims with carbon accents all around the car -- show car look.

Pretty much works either way for me as long as you aren't mixing both

As long as we have made that distinction....that spoiler is absolutely not necessary on the street...you need a very capable car to take advantage of it.

I suppose the rivet look is more 'race car' but I still think a street car should be a bit more refined. Just my opinion.

If we put aesethtics aside for a moment its something that screams douchebag in the USA. Stick on panels placed on a car that produce B segment horsepower at the wheels just is stomach turning. If you are going to decorate a car like this it had better be faster than a Civic.
