Angel's Dual Duty FR-S Build

This is my raven black 2013 FR-S.
I purchased it in February of 2018 after five years of driving and racing Miatas. I see the FR-S as a spiritual sibling to the Miata(lightweight, agile, low-power momentum car), but with a more substantial feel and a rigid roof.

To mirror Tor's modification philosophy:

1. OE parts deemed sufficient for my intended use are left on the car.
2. Modifications must balance performance function with daily driveability.
3. Cosmetic mods that mimic a "performance" look shall be omitted.

Intended Use:
My car spends 95% of its time driven on the street. I attend 8+ driving events each year(autoX and track), so certain steps are taken to make the car competent as a performance car, but also remain usable on the street.
