I watched all of it, but what I was thinking to myself the entire time was why a Scion FR-S was shipped to Taiwan to be used as a track car.

Over-revving? I guess he pulled a Takumi.

I don't think he was over-revving through most of the video. You can't even see past 5kish; sure the shift light was flashing, but you want to stay between 5k-7k while you're on the track.

Most likely he was downshifting and it blipped higher than redline causing something to go.

To me I see a huge weight reduction and at least a 5.0 final drive. Love the way it picks up.

I wish this thread were a technical breakdown of the design differences between AVCS and VTEC, because this thread title hurts me.

Sorry but ITT you'll find a Honda fanboi circlejerk most likely due to the fact that Honda hasn't made anything new and interesting to drive for the U.S. in nearly a decade.
