Daniel Song’s Scion FR-S
Tuner Challenge FR-S GT
Vehicle: 2013 Scion FR-S
Built by: Daniel Song

As a first time contestant to the Scion Tuner Challenge, Daniel Song felt that the FR-S was the perfect car to jump on. Almost immediately after accepting his participation in the Challenge, his mind went to work. He felt strongly that the Scion FR-S was built and designed as a performance vehicle to be enjoyed by both professional and amateur driving enthusiasts. It was then that the no-nonsense, function built, raw, aggressive, and sinister race bred theme was born. The project was named the “FR-S GT” and was the first clue to its inner racecar spirit being unleashed. It was important to Daniel that not only the car be ‘show ready’ for it’s debut at SEMA 2012, but that if the FR-S GT had to, it could put on a real show on the track where it would truly come alive.

Can you make your car waltz around a city street or wooded backroad like Ken Block? Probably not. Of course, the inability to hold hundred-foot all-wheel-drive slides and place a front wheel within millimeters of a dock drop-off hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of Gymkhana fans from imitating their rally hero, on- or off-camera. Most do so with a modified

One of the most common flexes among the biggest automakers is to squirrel away examples of their best and rarest work over their history to eventually show off those pieces as an anthology. Not long ago, we received a glimpse at a new exhibit at the Honda Collection Hall in Japan, and much deeper in

Roll racing is having a moment – or at least it was before COVID hit and shut down a year’s worth of events. The motorsport phenomenon that we first noticed through the likes of Texas2K two-plus decades ago and a few other copycat events around the country since had some momentum heading into 2020 before

In order to get the full story of Garage Active, and its animated founding father, you would need more than just a single feature. In all honesty, you would probably need something along the lines of the Lord of the Rings sized trilogy, complete with all of the spin-offs, behind-the-scenes extras and perhaps even that
