As I was walking around the paddock, I came across a familiar vehicle.  It was JJ Askwig’s FRS!  And it has some new curves and shoes.

He rang up Robert Kochis, another noted FRS owner, at Mod Bargains and scooped up a set of Rocket Bunny V1 flares.

He cut the fenders, color matched the new flares, then riveted them on.  To fill the new, massive fender wells, JJ picked up a set of Forgestar F14s.  It was already a great looking car, and now it looks a lot meaner.  Always love seeing this car, can’t wait to see it again.

$30K Check: Scion FR-S

Scion FR-S CAMautoMag

You could see this one coming from a mile away, couldn’t you? The world is in a storm created by the Toyobaru twins. It’s an intriguing car with RWD, a Boxer-4 with adequate power and a relatively low entry cost. What’s not to like? This car isn’t made for big, smoky burnouts. It’s made to fuse the driver with the road, and although they are virtually identical, the front fascia on the Scion FR-S looks nicer and more aggressive in my opinion.

The potential of these cars is undeniable. You’ve no doubt seen our coverage at the track with Brody’s white Subaru WRX in Lap Battle. Well, he already has his white BRZ lowered on Volk Racing wheels, and saying that I like it is an understatement.

I wouldn’t throw lots of power at the FR-S, just a few bolt-ons, as to not upset the balance and character. I wouldn’t scrape the ground with it’s low-ness. I would drive it and enjoy it like it should be enjoyed, connecting corners in the canyon.
