StanceNation G Edition Japan Car Show Featured Some Sick FR-Ss & BRZs

The StanceNation G Edition car show in Japan features some crazy custom cars.  in between the high end VIP cars, custom classics and even some stanced Kei cars there were a few awesome Scion FR-S, Toyota FT-86 and Subaru BRZ customs.

This FT-86 has the Rocket Bunny V1 widebody kit, Work VS wheels that haven’t been released to the public yet, and either a turbo kit or a supercharger being fed by that huge front mount intercooler.

Everyone’s favorite is a V8 swapped FR-S, this one doesn’t have an Chevy LS V8 swap, but it does have individual throttle bodies, which makes it even cooler.  The V8 FR-S also has a Todokori front bumper, STI brakes, and Work Emotion D9R wheels.

Air bags, a custom widebody kit, and awesome looking VIP Modular wheels make the Crystal Eye FT-86 one of the best looking show cars in any country.

Scion FR-S On Vossen Wheels

The Scion FR-S is a beautiful car. Even people who don’t care one bit about the car’s handling or pure, fun driving experience can get excited about the FR-S’ almost supercar good looks. It might not be a supercar, but it still turns heads on every street it drives down. Just because the girls in your hometown might not have Giselle’s cheek bones doesn’t mean they aren’t beautiful.

One thing that really separates the FR-S from supercars is the wheels the car comes with. A $25,000 car just won’t come with sick wheels, so you have to add your own.

That’s what Wheel Specialists Inc. did with their red FR-S. They fitted the Scion FR-S with Vossen VVS-CV3 wheels in matte black with a machined face.

Purists might say the 19” Vossens make the Scion FR-S look like it’s been donked (like the Hot Wheels FR-S Donk variant that made it into stores), but purists rarely have much fun or really awesome looking cars.

Watch an 800 Horsepower 2JZ Scion FR-S Drift the Oregon Trail

I can’t think of a better way to travel the Oregon Trail than with an 830-horsepower drift car.  You can keep your oxen and your fording rivers, the only part of that game that was any fun was the hunting anyway.  Ryan Tuerck took his Formula D Scion FR-S to the Maryhill Loops Road, aka the Oregon Trail hill climb track (don’t worry it’s closed to the public, so you won’t see an 800-horsepower Formula D car chase a minivan full of school children off the road), to do some drifting.

Tuerck raced up the mountain sideways alone, then tackled the track downhill in tandem with another drifter, Rob Primo.

Tuerck’s formula D Scion FR-S is powered by a stroked 2JZ-GTE engine, the venerable powerhouse from the Supra.  The 2JZ engine swap is popular, Scion is entering a factory backed 2JZ Scion FR-S into this year’s Formula D.
