Now this is why you do not race through traffic, even if you own a Subaru STi or other well designed sports car. This stupid kid thought weaving in and out of traffic at nearly 200 km/h would somehow be safe? At first you notice some near crash chances, but then once in the tunnel the light at the end makes it impossible to see. Of course there were about 50 cars backed up at the end, so he plows through 10 or more cars causing tons of damage and possibly hurting some people at those speeds. This is just a reminder that if you own a sports car, think about the others on the road first before trying to race through traffic. Instead, take your car to the track and really find out its true potential before destroying it for one minute of “fun” with your friends.
Aftermarket tuners are going above and beyond with whatever you want to call it, the Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 or Subaru BRZ. That is the only problem with this sports car, we’re not sure what manufacturer to classify it under as both Toyota and Subaru have worked on it together. Identical cars from two different companies are rare these days, however it does make the tuning industry stronger since they can all form as one. We’re going to make it simple and call this car the FRZ86 from now on, see what we did there?
Scion is ready to rock the SEMA show with several new Scion FR-S models that were part of their Tuner Challenge competition. They have teamed up with Subaru and their BRZ version of the car to put together some interesting modifications. These are just the teasers we have for now, since the Japanese automaker will not reveal any information about the projects until the SEMA curtains drop. Stay tuned for some customized Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ models to sweep across the country.
Check out this all new Subaru BRZ that has received a concept sport kit from STI at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. This sporty rear-wheel drive coupe has received several Subaru Tecnica International (STI) aftermarket parts. A few new spoilers, performance parts and suspension upgrades make up the kit that gives the new BRZ racing capabilities.
The guys at Speedhunters teamed up the KW suspension experts to create this 86X drift car based on the Toyota GT-86. (Also know as the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S depending on where you live) It recently participated in the Gatebil drift competition in Norway and plans to tour Europe while being driven by Fredric Aasbø. To get this car competition ready, the guys had to completely swap out the factory engine with a larger 2JZ-GTE sourced from a Toyota Supra.
