Tuned heads to Chuckwalla Raceway to test out VCMC's turbo FR-S, built for Canada's Tuner Challenge. It's a fully built track car, and as an added challenge, Matt gets to share the track with the practice session for the 24 Hours of Lemons.
Should I Buy A Subaru BRZ or a BMW E46? - /ROAD TESTAMENT
This week, we introduce a new segment: #BRZorThat, in which we discuss
used-car alternatives -- submitted by you -- to the Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S,
the second coming of the inexpensive, light-weight, rear-drive sports car.
Try one of these, or buy the BRZ. Your choice.
The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of
performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we
learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance
without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double
the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's
torque? We find out.

Scion FR-S Chasing Porsche 997 GT3 @ Circuit Of The Americas (Track)
**Subscribe and dont forget to rate more videos in my channel*
In car video chasing a Porsche GT3 @ Circuit of the americas COTA in the
FR-S. Best lap from Feb 01-03 was a 2:40.8 and top speed in the back
straight was 117 MPH, as the day warmed up so did my front tires and i
started getting a bit of understeer and my time would go up. The FR-S is a
well balanced car but lacks power in a track like COTA. Im sure the GT3
driver was either on street tires or not pushing the car all the way but
man i had fun chasing him down. Just for reference a well setup gt3 should
clock a 2:22.0 - 2:32.0 depending on driver, brakes, suspension, and tires.

FRS (GT86, BRZ) vs RX8 vs S2000 Review - Everyday Driver
This is the Most-Requested Comparison we've come across on our show and
elsewhere... the much Hyped FRS taking on the well loved RX8 and Honda
While these challengers are no longer available new, they are real
cross-shopping options for many people. So, can the New Kid actually be
better than the old guard?
The guys spent a beautiful day on a favorite road to find out.
And see the FRS compared with the Genesis Coupe and Lotus Elise on our
Pacific Coast Highway roadtrip:

The 1,100 HP Switzer "Ultimate Street Edition" GTR - /TUNED
It wasn't long ago that driving a 1000+ horsepower car came with
many sacrifices. These were race or show cars, not to be used daily. Enter
the Switzer "Ultimate Street" GTR. On pump gas, it makes 1,000 horsepower with virtually no
downside. On race gas, it makes 1,100 horsepower. And the owner of
this particular GTR uses it as his daily driver to commute to work. Is
enough to get to the office? We'll find out.
**Update** 0-60: 2.5s, 1/4 Mile: 9.4 @ 150, Standing Mile 208 mph.
This Electric E36 Makes 850 lb/ft of Torque at the Wheels! - /TUNED
EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save
the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars
using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The
Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under
20 miles at very high elevation, is one of those events. We take their
Pike's Peak M3 to the Dyno to find out what 400
Kilowatts means in horsepower, then to see how

Drift car. We learn what separates a drift car from a race car, and Matt
gets to work on his drifting technique behind the wheel of a monster race
$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night
before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable
again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than
layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and
maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking
about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction
between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The
purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but
rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on
extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have
any questions. email@example.com
The 600 HP APR Stage 3 Audi TTRS - /TUNED
Alabama is the last place you'd expect to find one of the world's largest
tuner companies for German cars, but here, at this facility, APR provides
hardware and software to thousands of Audi and VW customers every month.
Matt helps them with some development testing by providing opinions on
their new Stage 3 package for the Audi TTRS, producing 560 horsepower at the wheels in
a car based on the VW Golf!
JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.
