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!

CCCHK 2011 Rd6 Race 1: AE86 vs Porsche 911 :-)
Race 1 of this season's final round. This race consisted in trying to put some pressure on the porsche in the twisty sections, hoping they would make a mistake for me to pass. It partially happened :-). I got "Rookie of the year", had a lot of fun, managed to get 3 podiums this season. It's now time to finally show some love to my old engine and rebuild it, further lighten the car, give it an improved suspension setup, and maybe a new paint.

2013 Subaru BRZ top speed run
Follow me on Facebook and Instagram! Facebook.com/JTPhotos / Instagram @speedracer38 At the end of May I got a call from the Subaru dealership telling me my 2013 BRZ Limited had arrived and was ready for me to take delivery. After a grueling 1,000 mile break-in period I was looking forward to see what the car was capable of. I shipped the car to the autobahn to do some high speed runs in the car and attempt the top speed. The car is limited by its aerodynamics unfortunately so I had to get a good stretch which favored the car which allowed me to get up to 147 MPH. This isn't very high speed compared to other exotic cars but for a 200HP Subaru I was very impressed seeing what it's capable of on the top speed spectrum! For those of you who don't know this is a rear wheel drive Subaru and the car is fantastic to drive along with drifting ;) Please leave a comment and subscribe. Enjoy!

2013 Scion FR-S Review - Kelley Blue Book
Known as the Toyota 86 or GT-86 in foreign markets, the Scion FR-S (along with its close sibling the Subaru BRZ) is the product of a close collaboration between Subaru and Toyota. Years in the making the FR-S is specifically engineered to deliver thrilling rear-drive performance at a modest price. KBB's Micah Muzio had an opportunity to drift the FR-S, test it at the race track and experience it on the streets to see if it lives up to the hype. Spoiler alert, it does.

86FEST Import Car Show Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota AE-86 @ Fontana Auto Club Speedway
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/fr-s/2013/?id=32972 Autobytel's own FR-S fanatic T.J. Keon was recently invited out to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA for the first ever 86FEST, a gathering and celebration of all things Toyobaru and pays homage to the original AE-86 with everything from a car show to on track activities. We were fortunate enough to catch up with the man who loves little red Hachis more than anyone else, Antonio Alvendia, from Cipher Garage and MotorMavens.com and is responsible for 86FEST. Scion Racing driver Ken Gushi was also on hand to talk about drifting as well as daily driving an FR-S after signing a few autographs and smoking a few sets of tires. Finally we were able to catch up with Speedhunter Larry Chen where the Drift Photo aficionado shared a story of a very special Hachi Roku with only 48 original kilometers that had been kept in a basement for the past 25 years he found on a recent trip to Belgium.
