Yeah I wondered that about the drift mode. I saw an article that explained it better somewhere but never read it.
The issue with the Civic crowd is they all want the cheap, glorious performance of the old ITR or the late 80's Civic Si hatch. While those cars had great suspension, one of the big drivers of their handling success was the light weight, which you will never see in a modern car with a low price due to the added creature comforts and safety requirements.
It is cool though that this new type R is putting down sub 8 min laps on the Ring though, so handling seems to be pretty good. However, for street handling and autocross use the weight is going to hurt more over the old old versions.
