While the Team VCMC FR-S is at a machining shop getting some custom suspension pieces made (much more about this soon), a good friend of ours stopped by Shift Autosport so we could do some quick test fitting on parts we received. I think they look great, and I know they are going to work VERY VERY well!!

Richard

Thank you Mr. bneale for the use of the car for an hour

Your more then welcome Rich. Any time you need it, just give me a shout.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new wing on your car as well as the graphics. I'm very interested to see how the wing looks on your car.

Ben

Work continues on Team VCMC's FR-S! Shift Autosport designed and built a beautiful front splitter for the car this weekend. It will continue to develop this week as we gear up to do some testing before Challenge #1 August 26th in Barrie Ontario.

After a considerable ammount of work to the suspension we had the ability to test fit our KW Variant 3's this weekend!!!

For more information about this current update and more pictures go to our website: www.TeamVCMC.com

Looks good so far! At least now you won't have to worry about taking a clay bar to any cone marks!! I honestly wonder how much downforce that thing really adds. Any idea clue on what the effects are for front end grip?

I can't wait to see the "Dark Knight" FR-S out on track! Keep the updates coming.

Even at low speeds we expect to see a good amount of help to the front end. This pared with a good functional rear wing will contribute to a balanced aero package.

Team VCMC was out testing this weekend for Scion Tuner Challenge #1 autocross. We are still working out some of the teething issues with the car and working on a good setup. That being said, what a car! This was my 2nd run in the car with the new modifications and you can see I'm comfortable with pushing 100%.

Team VCMC's final testing day before the car ships to Toronto for the 1st challenge of the Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S edition concluded this passed weekend.

Our car will be displayed at the Toronto Import Fest on August 25th and we will be in Barrie Ontario for Challenge #1 Autocross during the 2012 Canadian National Autoslalom Champoinship!

Club VCMC did a great job supporting us this weekend allowing us to do run after run during both days of competition. This allowed us to not only test a lot of set-up changes but also meet fans of our build and give some ride alongs! Michael Denham, a member of Team VCMC, created a fantastic video documenting this weekend, check it out!!
