Super Street car lacks soul for some reason except for the engine bay..

Speed Hunters created an awesome car and really pulled off the KM4SH kit , cosworth blower is cool, but the vented hood and fender mirrors are just plain awesome!.

The GT Channel car is nice and it's cool how the teamed up with MINE's, but personally it lacks alot of soul. Good quality build though nonetheless..

I personally voted for the Speed Hunters car because #MaximumAttack. But in all I feel all 3 cars have awesome craftsmanship , quality parts, and are all around solid builds.

The speedhunters build is great until you get to the engine bay...disappointing...

The silver car is all rice.

The yellow has ITB's and tubs and a tucked harness.......very original (sarcasm)


Speedhunters is the best of the 3 in my book....but that's just because it's the least disappointing.

What is wrong with the Speedhunters car underhood? It is a clean S/C install that isn't crazy for the sake of being crazy.

How do you know? If true I'm glad, it deserved it. I have no idea how the yellow one won the poll however.

Frustrated where are all the threads leaking out all the new Sema goodies for our cars? I'm blind or tired apparently...

GT Channel was my favorite, then Speedhunters for a close second. I think I liked the GT channel the most because it was not a wide body. Loved the fender mirrors on the Speedhunters though.

Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge one-offs revealed for SEMA [video]

I'm just gonna make a comment and express my opinion. I think that these cars are terribly ugly. I would never do what they did to these cars to another fr-s, but I would imagine to owner is happy with his/her car, and that's all that really matters. The yellow one is a little played out. Rocket bunny, red out taillights, some camber, etc. I like the rocket bunny kit, but c'mon it's become common on show cars. I don't like the look of stances cars or anything and putting wheels that still require camber to fit on a wide body car is a waste to me but I like the custom touch that they did on the front color. In not crazy about the color either, but I think it looked good on this one. I like the carbon fiber trim better and a roundish shift knob instead of those dildo knobs they put on most cars now. This one looks a little like a mini dildo knob but whatever. I like the itb's and what they did to the engine bay though. It doesn't seem like such a functional car though, and it just looks too wide in the back because it looks like it's missing something on top. It needs a wing or something. On the speed hunters one, those wheels, fender mirrors, and the stripes killed it. I really don't think that they should've made this car look retro. I think one of the ugliest things about it is the fender mirrors. I like that they introduced that cosworth supercharger kit and that it's more of a functional car. On the GT Channel one, I don't like the color or two tone, and I really don't like that wing. What I like about it not being a wide body though is that it keeps the beautiful stock body lines. There's plenty of things that I don't like about each car and some things that I like too, but I can't decide which one's nicest lol. But to each his own I guess.
