Scion FRS, #2 car from Scion PR, Throttle Blip by me...

Didn't get to go too far, it's still a secret vault car so I didn't get to go no more than to feel the clutch, steering, shift linkages, and brakes. But let me tell you, within just a few dozen yards of this car, even before the full around the block. OMG...!! The steering feel is on the heavy side like a proper sports car, possibly VERY communicative at speed, the clutch pedal stroke is almost a dead clone of the AE86, triple pedal layout is spot on for heel and toe, the engine response is about as good as my 20V blackhead on Freedom ECU, seat position against vehicle controls were akin to what most of us place with a low-bracket aftermarket seats in the AE86, the cabin engine noise is effectively orchestrated by Yamaha, Subaru and Toyota working on a epic concert, just as defined as my LFA ride experience just a day before this. Also I need to note that the front A pillar is really similar to the LFA, and front window raked about the same from the inside. Lots of headroom. I'm 5-10 and you can see from the photo, I have a lot left in headroom. I think anyone up to 6-2 or so will fit fine with a helmet, thanks to the very low seating position. The OEM bucket seat is spectacular! It may be a bit tight at the shoulder bolsters for the widest of folks, but for me it seemed tailored to my shoulders. Shift linkage is very short throw for an OEM box with perhaps 9 inch travel from 3rd-4th at the top of the shift lever. The shift feel is nothing I have felt in a Toyota-Aisin box before, its as precise and firm as a brand new BMW M3. I first bent in butt-first into the low seats, then holding the steering wheel, I swung over my feet over the rather wide side sills. (I can see the structural rigidity just by looking at these sills) It's a VERY low seating position. Once I adjusted my seat via slider and recliner, I noticed everything else just seem to fall right where I needed it. Pretty close to a modified AE86 race cockpit seating position. Firm seats hold you snug at the thigh, and shoulders, where it counts the most for tactile feel of the road. The ritual needed to ingress/egress is pretty special, and you really get a sense of the fact that you are climbing in and out of a sports car, again similar to getting into an LFA. ' 'So yeah, trust me, once inside and you're underway. This car does feel every bit as something an AE86 driver wants in a modern rendition of compact sports. Almost forgetting how different it is on the outside and the fact that it shares nothing mechanically in parts. It is a driver's car worthy I think of AE86 drivers... 12/10/2011 Cars & Coffee Car Meet and Greet Irvine, California, Ford Campus This was the FIRST ever outing publicly of the Scion FRS with Scion PR Team, at the Cars & Coffee Car Meet and Greet gathering. 3 AE86's from Club4AG members accompanied the one of only 2 FRS Pre-Production USA car, and the only one with modifications to date shown in public. Club4AG AE86's accompanied this FRS from Greddy headquarters at 6:30am for a surprise, unannounced public viewing to Cars & Coffee, in Irvine CA. What a success! All the folks swarmed into the car almost magnetically, and there were several young folks who claimed position of expert (from reading rumors and what not on the interweb...lol) and even the older exotic car owners simply marveled at the construction, engine layout, and other details of the car. There weren't enough of us to answer the riot of people and questions. Still, The FIRST EVER STREET outing of the FRS, complete surprise and unannounced shocked the show visitors, and lucky by-standers got a treat of seeing this occasion. Special Thanks to Scion USA PR Staff, Greddy USA, and great friends who brought beautiful AE86's for this memorable occasion of our lives. The Greddy enhacements are still developmental for this car, but visually, its already spectacular. Secondly, I have to apologize to EVERYONE for not sending invitations earlier. But I will promose that when I am allowed to work publicly with Scion USA folks on future events, I will send notices to all Club4AG folks!
