Here are a couple more shots of our S2000 #2. There’s still lots of parts that need to go on the car so this is how it sits for now.
While our main S2000 #1 demo car is still under indefinite construction we decided to repaint our S2000 #2 test car that we had sitting around and throw on some spare parts we weren’t using. We mainly use this car to test fit parts and take measurements so it will be a very mild build, our other S2000 #1 will get all the good stuff. Here’s just a teaser pic, better pics to come when the car gets cleaned up.
We’ve been getting some emails of our license plates being spotted. Thanks for the support! We’re especially happy they’re on Honda’s.
Before the re-cap and pictures from this year’s Tsukuba Time Attack, here is ASM’s in-car lap. Best time of the day was 1’01’711.
I got a chance to take a close look at the super-hyped Scion FR-S at Greddy. The Scion concept car looked great but when the production car was introduced, it was definitely a let-down for me. However, ugly cars always look better in black so the FR-S Greddy had didn’t look too bad; especially with the giant 19″ wheels and lowered stance. But with 5×100 bolt pattern wheels, what was Toyota thinking if they were trying to create a “tuner friendly” car. However, the car will be introduced as a Scion with a budget friendly price tag and the interior really reflected this. It looked as econo as any sub-$20k Scion and not a nice place to be. Toyota was smart to hype this car a lot, especially in the aftermarket industry, without the hype, the car wouldn’t be anything special.
