Available Any Day of the Week.
$300 - $1,500 / Day
Jump into the Scion FR-S and be prepared to learn the feel of a true rear-wheel drive racecar as you learn the best lines of the track. With traction control turned off you will have the opportunity to ‘feel’ the car, preparing you for your next level of track driving or competitive racing.
FR-S coupes will use their stock engines and transmissions with a few components tweaked by Toyota Racing Development (TRD) including an airbox, a stainless-steel exhaust, coil-over shocks and springs, a big-brake kit with Hawk Performance pads, 18-inch TRD wheels shod with 225/40-18 tires, and a Centerforce racing clutch. Running 100-octane racing fuel and Redline lubricants, output is rated at 210 horsepower, slightly higher than the 200-hp rating of the stock car. Safety features include a full roll cage, a five-point harness, a kill switch, a fire-extinguisher system, and a window net.
The idea of “Pure Balance” is further realized by the Scion FR-S’s lightweight design and compact size, a combination that allows it to be quick and nimble into and out of corners, with dynamic maneuverability and confident handling. The Scion FR-S is kept to a minimum weight by utilizing an aluminum hood, a solid roof, and by featuring a trunk design instead of a hatchback. The Scion FR-S’s low weight is complimented by a dynamically tuned suspension setup consisting of MacPherson struts up front and a double wishbone system in the rear. Excellent steering feedback and input is provided by Electronic Power Steering with a sporty 13:1 steering ratio. Lightweight 17×7-inch alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes are standard on all four corners. For the sake of experienced performance driving enthusiasts, the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC) can be set in combination of five configurations.
