nope, HRC kits wouldn't help them. The biggest advantage of the HRC kit is the engine and the Honda is already very fast in a straight line doing it themselves. They're much better off working a program similar to Ten Kate. Its the stupid little things that makes HRC a PITA. I think it was Miguel that didn't like the footpeg positioning of the HRC rearsets but HRC wouldn't let them modify the rearsets or use anything else.
I think they liked the HRC suspension package, but again, they could only do so much with it
Also, the HRC kit required an Akra exhaust (it might still, not sure) but American Honda was sponsored by Jardine. HRC wouldn't let them use a Jardine exhaust so they had to put a Jardine sticker on their HRC/Akra cans. Jardine was pissed, the team was pissed, HRC didn't give a sh!t.
