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.
