Villanous_FRX - ZN6 Build

Lava GT86 journey –
I purchased this car from another member on the forum back in March of 2020 as a birthday gift to myself to replace my STI swapped WRX as the “reliable daily driver”. Later that summer I sold the WRX and moved to a daily/track single car.
The focus of this car is to be a simple seat time track car that can still get me around town. For parts, my focus is on high quality pieces with a “do it once, do it right” mentality. I am sourcing most parts through Sean Yack @ Subieland Canada, if you have any questions feel free to reach out.





Now for the fun part! Modifications/parts:

Engine:
Blitz Nur-Spec VSR
TRD USA Intake Filter
Mishimoto Catch Can

Drivetrain / Suspension:
Verus clutch fork + pivot

Wheels / Tires:
RPF1 17x9 +35 - Hankook RS4 - 245/40/17

Exterior:

Thanks! It's a great car, and just those first few years were just the break in.

I like this photo. It's different than most others. It tells a story. There is action, somehow, without any movement. It almost tells a story about grassroots motorsports, and has good composition and lighting. Well done!

Of course! When the bumper comes off in the spring for the oil cooler + some lighting upgrades, the bumper plate will be replaced as well.
