Scion Racing GReddy 2JZ FR-S Prototype Build
At the 2013 SEMA Show, GReddy Racing officially took the wraps off their
new 2JZ powered Scion FR-S prototype. Go behind the build to see how the
team prepped it to become the ultimate drift car, and be sure to stay tuned
through the end for a sneak peak at what's coming up.
Scion FR-S Testing at Laguna Seca
It is well known that the 2013 Scion FR-S is an iconic sports car born to
be on the race track. And few tracks are as iconic and legendary as Laguna
Seca and its infamous corkscrew. Ken Gushi was lucky enough to take not
only a stock FR-S up to the scenic hills of Monterey, CA but also an early
prototype for his GReddy Racing FR-S drift car!

the changes the team made to the car.
The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
Hyundai Genesis Coupe "Build to Formula Drift" with Rhys Millen Racing
Meet Rhys Millen as he talks about the 2012 Formula Drift Race season and
the preparations that lead up to the 2012 Formula Drift season.
The 2013 Genesis Coupe Drift Car debuted at the streets of long beach this
year putting down some solid runs. The RWD Genesis Coupe is an excellent
platform for drifting and has lead to a great partnership between Hyundai
and the Rhys Millen Racing team. The team has put a lot of hours into
preparations and testing which in turn has lead to a reliable and very
competitive race car ready for a podium finish.

How to Install Scion FR-S Subaru BRZ KW Coilovers
Recently Vivid Racing hooked up their Scion FR-S project car with a set of
KW Variant 3 coilovers. With independent rebound and compression as well
as height adjustability, the KW coilover offers one of the best suspension
setups available. Having used these on our other project cars like the
Porsche 911 turbo and Mercedes CLS63,
the ride comfort and quality of the KW cannot be beat. The FR-S coilover,
which also fits the Subaru BRZ, is available at
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.
