WATCH – Inaugural Super Street 86 Showdown

Street-tuned versions of the FR-S and BRZ on Continental Tire’s latest UHP rubber tackle the road course

BOWLS Films
Dec 29, 2016

With so much momentum behind the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ in the aftermarket world, it was only fitting we create an event specifically for the sporty front engine, rear-wheel drive two-seater. As expected, the majority of the contenders showed up with supercharger power and many of the cars sporting a laundry list of suspension and aero tweaks. Driver experience level varied from minor to very experienced and the action continued throughout the day.

In the grip department, the folks at Continental Tire offered up a tire they’ve been developing for quite some time, the Ultra High Performance ExtremeContact Sport. So new in fact, our Tuner Battle Week drivers would be the first to use them in competition! And use them they did, as they laid down some impressive times throughout the day, but only one person left with the top spot. Find out who in this video! For photos from the event, head on over to our earlier wrap up of the results. And catch every episode of Tuner Battle Week 2016 on the Motor Trend YouTube Channel, December 26th through the 30th, with a new video premiering each day!
