https://www.youtube.com/embed/1VX7FpUGS1U

Acura highlights the story of the restored RealTime Racing #42 Integra Type R and its return to the track. The video highlights the Integra Type R’s original run in near-bone stock form, its dominant performance in the SPEED Touring Car championship, and its return to racing glory. And if you're as excited about this car as we are, look for an in-depth article on the RealTime Racing Intergra R in our December 2019 issue.

I had to rewatch this 3 times to make sure I'm not crazy. But they're definitely working on the front suspension of the car and I'm seeing STRUTS?? when the Integra came from the factory with wishbones?

It's not impossible, We just haven't figured out how to do it yet.

I'm pretty sure that they got some footage from the RSX they ran in '03 mixed in there.

In reply to red_stapler :

Yeah, just an oversight on the part of Acura when they put the footage together.
