I'm happy that my '13 FR-S doesn't have any of that shit.
That's why I bought a nearly basemodel FR-S: none of the new age techno wizardry that interferes with actually driving a car. I get complaints all the time from my friends about how I didn't text them back or give their social media shit a thumbs up or whatever immediately and when I try to explain that driving my car requires all 4 limbs and my full attention I get a blank "WTF are you talking about" stare back.

Why's it so god damn motherfucking hard for people just to DRIVE these days? It's a singular activity, stop trying to do other things while you do it!
Yesterday I was watching a large mercedes SUV in my rear view drifting back and forth between the lines. I could see the driver doing the classic move of looking down at their phone and peaking up to look at traffic every once in a while.

Traffic was bumper to bumper so I wasn't able to get out of the lane for a while, but I was definitely keeping an eye on him. Several times when traffic would creep forward I would see him slam on his brakes last minute... I'm glad I have a rear-view dashcam now, but I really dread the day I have to use the footage.

Ill correct myself.

My FRS is still very much an FRS on the inside. turn key, no push button, no bells or whistles


I got the tS braces, suspension bits, flex strut bar, 4.3 diff, and wing with a 2018 bumper.

I wanted the tS but also didnt want the frou frou nor the added cost of tearing apart a 1 of 500 unit.

am satisifed but would rather have the newer chassis that was refined and has the added stuff such as the diff ( I was lucky to find it)

Meh, my opinions are free.


I love the new wing. So jelly.

Oh, that wasn't the driver, that probably was the cars auto braking system.

Lol at how they portray this being used. Who says Germans don't have a healthy imagination...

Vid shows how zenki 86/BRZ power steering have random heavy weight steering while drifting. How they resolved it? Swap em out w Kouki 86/BRZ power steering module. Results are clear, it improved in better way. I had those feeling not only in drifting, but also in autox time, so I might be interesting in doing this simple mod/upgrade.
very interesting.

Definitely interested in how it works out. I don't want the steering feel to change much, it's just those odd situations where it feels like the power steering is out of breath...
