up and running with fresh Civic Type R pics

Those with Type R personalities will be glad to know that the newly announced Honda Civic Type R's mini-site, called Red H, has officially gone live. It's most notable content includes a bunch of new pics we didn't get yesterday, which you can find in all their high resolution glory after the jump. You can thank us for retrieving these photos from the particularly bandwidth-intensive site later. In addition to the new pics and a list of the new Type R's specifications, the site also includes a history of Honda's Type R models and mini-movies that attempt to teach the uneducated how to handle a Honda with a red 'H'. One such short called "The Jelly Wobble" teaches the importance of psi with the aid of an orange jelly cake placed on the passenger seat. The instructor hits the track with his spineless co-driver and the tires set to very high and then very low pressure to demonstrate the effects of air pressure on handling. Needless to say, the jelly cake gets jiggy with it the whole time and, well, the ending's not pretty.

If you're looking for Type R wallpapers, just follow the jump for the full batch.
