THE CHRIS RADO IN CAR EXPERIENCE
Chris Rado's Scion tC certainly has a lot of people talking this year...
Whether it's discussions about the functionality and aesthetics of the
fwing, or stories about him lighting up his front wheels in 6th gear on the
straight at Nashville, this machine certainly has raised some eyebrows.
It's also the most extreme and powerful front wheel drive time attack car
on the planet.
Chris seems rather happy to have gobs of power under his right foot... it's
said that the Scion now has 1000 bhp available on the straights.
So we thought it would be cool for you to experience two laps of Willow
Springs with this overpowered car.
There don't seem to be very many moments when Chris fully opens up the
throttle, but as you watch the video, you can really see just how much
power is in tap...Hope you like!
Special thanks to Chris Rado and World Racing for their time and
collaboration on this film, Spitfire Studios for their camera expertise and
Red Line Time Attack for working with us at their Willow Springs event.

Chris securing his third first place win of the season in unlimited GT FF
and setting a new FWD track record in his Need for Speed Scion tC. The crew
had their work cut out for them all weekend, fighting power steering issues
in the Fwing 2.0 but worked diligently to find a solution and bring home

Chris Rado & his WORLD Racing teammates take on Infineon Raceway in Sonoma,

season. Although it was a rainy weekend the team still managed to set a
new FWD track record for the course and a 1st place win in the Unlimited
FWD class. Stay tuned for more Global Time Attack action at season opener
in Buttonwillow, CA on April 21st & 22 2012.
FIRE: Chris Rado grenades his 1,200 horsepower Scion tC at Global Time Attack
Chris Rado pushes his 1,200 horsepower front-wheel drive
Scion tC to the absolute limits during the Global Time Attack season opener
at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in Buttonwillow, California. Coming around one
of the final turns of his hot lap a cam sensor failed then caused the vanos
to be fully advanced which more than likely tagged, then dropped a valve.
Another key factor is that due to excessive g's in the corners oil pressure
dropped enough to score a bearing which eventually put a rod through the
block igniting the fire and burning a portion of the engine bay and
The onboard fire suppression system failed when Chris Rado pulled the pin
so he doused the fire with backup fire extinguisher. Thankfully Chris
walked away unharmed.
