To protect the world from devastation! To unite all people within our nation! Okay I'll stop there. If you didn't get the reference you pretty much suck...just kidding. SEMA if anything is the place to debut the latest and greatest products. Besides the new Corvette, the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ still shined throughout the show. Companies are still churning out products for the celebrated platform. Famous Japanese designer Kei Muira rocked SEMA again with his second variant body kit for the ZN6/ZC6.
Prior to SEMA, Muira-san dropped teasers on his social networks and it spread like wildfire. The biggest difference is clearly in the front and rear. Instead of just a spoiler add-on the entire front bumper is replaced by an aggressive front face. The big mouth is perfect for feeding air into an intercooler and the carbon splitter gives off a racer feel. Just like in his S-chassis kits, Miura gave the rear a new ducktail spoiler. The fenders may look similar, but they're actually very different. The first FR-S we spotted with the new Rocket Bunny kit was from Robert Kochis of Stay Crushing. Second was the LTMW-built FR-S at the Nitto booth.
"Going from version one to version two was not the easiest thing to do. Be prepared for exposed precious drill holes on the quarter panel and rear bumper as well as more cutting required. Also the inner front bumper needed to be cut to fit the flares and allow clearance for turning radius," said Robert Kochis. "Also the front fender has a 1-1.5 inch greater radius than before. In order to properly sit 18-19-inch wheels, a decent sized tire and coilover modifications are needed. I opted for a 4-inch 11k swift spring and didn't cut the apron and used my existing 17s, but will switch to 19s soon. Proper clearance and fitment requires the stock apron to be cut and liners to be removed."
The Formula Drift season looks promising especially when you see cars like Daijiro Yoshihara's newest drift machine, the Subaru BRZ. Think of its plain white exterior as a canvas as Falken and Forza Motorsports are hosting a contest on who can design the best graphic scheme. As far as engine power, Dai will be running a similar V8 powerplant as seen on his Nissan S13 - possibly boosted.
Drifter and all around nice guy Ken Gushi brought out his insane 2JZ-powered Scion FR-S. Despite all of the Greddy and Rocket Bunny goods, Gushi retained the Scion FR-S 10th anniversary theme, glowing Scion badge and all. Imagine if you could get this thing from a Scion dealership? Does the 750 horsepower car come with a warranty?
