Thumbs up Amazing Redbull Scion FR-S Soapbox Car by Five:Axis / Import Tuner

This is a soapbox derby Scion FR-S by Import Tuner with design help from Five Axis (who also constructed the Scion FR-S concept car), commissioned by Red Bull soapbox

It's a custom one-off fiberglass miniaturized Scion FR-S concept derby car and the best one I've ever seen It's painted in the same red metallic paint of the FR-S and based on actual studio CAD designs.

Quote:
From Autoblog: Think the underpinnings are still '50s Soapbox technology? You couldn't be further off because the custom aluminum space frame features a TEIN coilover suspension and Wilwood disc brakes. But all that technology isn't going to be worth jack if there isn't a ringer behind the wheel. The Five:Axis Scion FR-S will be piloted by none other than Dai Yoshihara, the Formula D drifter who slides the Falken Tire Nissan 240SX. Dai knows a thing or two about grip as well since he also competes in the Redline Time Attack Tuner Car Championship in an imported Civic Type R.

However, at this point we're not sure what part of Dai's expertise is really applicable for the upcoming Redbull Soapbox derby race. The only race on the calendar in the U.S. this year, it's slated to be held tomorrow, May 21 at 5th & Grand in downtown LA and promises to be nothing like what you might envision a traditional Soapbox derby to be. There are sharp 90-degree turns, NASCAR-style banks and myriad of sweet jumps. Although it appears the Five:Axis build will hold together during the abuse, we are not sure that Dai's run will be crash or injury free.

Five:Axis, who also built the actual Scion FR-S concept from the NYIAS.
