The event staff talking about the Scion FRS and it's features and why the car was built the way it is.
After attending that event, I knew without a doubt that my next car was going to be a 2013 Scion FR-S. I had my inventory manager swap our unsold Firestorm 6 speed manual for one in Hot Lava. The following video shows the car carrier pulling into the dealership lot with my car on it.
Not the first mod that I did to the car, but the most substantial other than a Visconti ECUTek tune, was the addition of the SRT (Swift Racing Technologies) headerback exhaust. I love absolutely love the sound of this exhaust. It is on the loud side, but it doesn't bother me. It's a shame that SRT fell off the face of the planet in regards to support for this platform.
The manufacturer recommends a 1,000 mile break-in period where they want you to keep the engine under 4,000 RPMs. It's not an easy thing to do in this car because the car really comes alive around 4500RPM. I managed to do it with only 1-2 occurances where I needed to accelerate quickly and went above the 4k "limit". The car has a rev limiter that you can set to warn you with a light and/or a beep so that helps during this period. Anyway, here is a video of me playing in an empty parking lot the night I broke the 1,000 mile mark. :o)
At the product launch event that Scion held for dealership employees, I was able to drive a Civic Si and an FRS back-to-back on the infield section of Pocono Raceway. The Civic is a great car, but I think the newer ones are no where near as nice (or as good) as the older versions. Here's a video from the passenger seat on the course.
I will add more videos when I get some. I plan on autocrossing this year and I will be purchasing a GoPro to capture all the action. Bookmark my blog and/or subscribe to my YouTube channel for the latest videos from me!
