Unfavorable FR-S Review Part 3

Part 1 of 2 the Unfavorable Review Trailer
Love it or hate it this is a massive project in terms of development.




Coming Soon - Filming Complete
Part 1:Stock FR-S
  • Street Test drive with Harry Cash. One of the most renowned S2000 owners with many firsts including Supercharging, Instruction and a long race history.
  • Baseline Dyno, working through power oddities.
  • AutoX test and tune | Comparing the differences between two drivers in the same car and the difference between a stock FR-S and a modified STX setup.
  • Sway bar experiments, does it matter?
  • Track prep, brake pads and fluid and why is the FR-S so rusty?
  • Gingerman Racetrack, balanced handling is only half of the story.
  • Is it worth modifying the FR-S/BRZ - Part 2 preview.

Looking forward to it.

Do you use rotten eggs between takes to keep the frown on your face?

After the criticisms from episodes 1 and 2, episode 3 looks promising. Hoping for a clearer distinction between serious criticisms and sarcasm, if any. I see attempts to bring fanboys down to ground level. BUT. Dat sir say it's keeper...

Make no mistake there will be humor and sarcasm but this is definitely is 100% more serious along with entertaining. More content less talking.

Even with its shortcomings, it's a keeper. I've heard of a lot of these problems on many cars such as brake fade. At the end of the day, it's still won so many awards its not even funny. It's IS a great car. It's NOT the best car. Can't please em all lol.

Yeah, that was my conclusion after my test drives. I wasn't blown away by it (nor was I expecting to be) but everything felt pretty good and nothing felt too objectionable. Which, as critical as I am of cars, is quite an achievement.

Hope it comes out good. Stock brakes cannot handle any heat that is for sure, not surprising though. But you cant please them all.

Probably when the final product is released you will get more of that.
