Speedhunters lived up to their name with the Scion Tuner Challenge build for SEMA 2014, building a track ready race car out of the FR-S. The Speedhunters Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S is a widebody racecar with a full roll cage, supercharger and more.
The Speedhunters FR-S has a Cosworth Stage 2.0 supercharger, Delicious Tuning ECU tune, an Airaid intake, Raceseng air conditioner delete, shaved engine bay and wiring harness, a CSF radiator, JDL header, and a 3” single exit exhaust.
For the exterior, the Speedhunters Scion Challenge FR-S got Speedhunters’ own KM4SH fender flares with shaved screw pockets for a cleaner look, Charvonia design fender vents and rear diffuser, custom front diffuser. For the race car look, the FR-S also got a side window glass delete, shaved door handles, shaved mirrors replaced with old school fender mounted mirrors. Seventeen inch Rotiform BLQ wheels keep up the retro theme.
Full RS*R Black-i coilovers, SuperPro front and rear sway bars, sway bar stiffening plates and SPC Performance rear lower control arms give the Speedhunters FR-S handling to match the engine performance. A Wilwood big brake kit with 6 piston front and 4 piston rear calipers and 12.88” rotors will stop the car like brick wall.
Since this is a SEMA car, the Speedhunters FR-S isn’t just a stripped out race car inside. The interior upgrades to the FR-S aren’t completely barebones: custom leather trim from JPM Coachworks, shaved seatbelt mounts and airbag test from Charvonia Design, custom door panels and dashboard, Takata harnesses (the import scene is going to have to come up with a new #basic harness to install in every car), a Cusco 4 point roll cage, custom low back seats, a race steering wheel, and vintage Indycar pedals and footrest.
