Re: Sketch o5's 2013 Scion FR-S

These things are so f-ing fun. I test drove one while shopping for a new car, but ultimately it's too small to be my only car/DD. Do you track it?

Re: Sketch o5's 2013 Scion FR-S

no, no tracks. it's my daily, soon to be my only, and so i need it to stay together haha. not that it'd fall apart or anything, but i'd rather not beat it around an auto x course, or a real track, because i need to get to work haha. plus, it's all stock, and while it's really nice in stock form, i'd rather have a few suspension upgrades. i was taking a corner today a bit spiritedly and the car definitely need at least coilovers haha.

well, the main reason is price. fr-s' tend to be cheaper, from what i've seen...for the same car, you bet i'll be paying the lower price :lawl: i prefer the fr-s to the brz anyway, it's more of the toyota 86 than the brz is. not that there's a huge difference haha. i didn't know it until after i bought it, but i think the fr-s has a better set up stock suspension too, from what i've read. i've heard the brz can understeer a small bit due to a smaller rear sway and softer front springs (i think?), but i haven't driven one, so i can't really say. i also don't really care for all the extras the brz comes with either...it's about the driving, not the extras haha.

the fr-s definitely doesn't have an understeer problem haha ;)

really? i haven't seen many white ones in person, but meet pictures i've seen online have a TON of white ones haha.

yeah, the ground clearance :ugh: it's paid off now though, so saving for the fun stuff has begun :badger:
