If you’re unaware, FL2K14 is one of the major street racing (and legal drag racing) events of the year. Following the popularity of TX2K, it was decided that the world needs more than one massive congregation of insanely fast cars each year. So a whole bunch of super fast cars meet at Bradenton Motorsports park in October for full days of race events including a 60-130 roll racing event, 1/4 mile racing, burnout contests and more followed (allegedly) by more fun after dark on the highways. Four digit horsepower isn’t even special at the 2K events. So it seems like a place that the lowly Scion FR-S, with 200-hp and a focus on fun over brute strength, might not fit in too well. That is unless of course someone had a completely built turbo FR-S that put out about 700-horsepower.
The official FL2K14 Facebook page shared this picture and caption:
Justin is bringing is built and sleeved Scion FRS, running a Precision 6466 controlled by a MoTeC Engine management system is good for around 700hp and he is planning on racing anybody. (hashtags removed because they’re annoying)
With 700-hp and 2,700 lbs, he shouldn’t have much trouble running with the 2JZ cars. We’ll all be looking forward to videos of what the little 2.0 liter FR-S can do.
The owner offered a bit more information about the car and its tuning situation:
I was at TX2k14. I was on EcuTek and the car was turned down due to fuel issues. The software didn’t want to read pass 22psi and kept leaning out. That was the main reason I had to opt out of the roll racing. We turned it down so that I can enjoy the car. But this car will be there in October.
