I would love me some of that V8-ness. Eager to see the finished product.

4-point belts. The automotive equivalent of natural selection.

I do like the brake ducts, but wouldn't it have been more functional if there was some chin/lip of some sort they were molded into, so air acutally is forced into them?

The rest of that article is impossible to read because it's fail engrish. Those wheels are awful. I don't see the 4th point of the seatbelt. Those aren't race seats. As mentioned previously, BRZ already has LSD. Those two hooks are gayness. The only thing that's worth anything is the oil cooler and the brake cooling ducts which are much needed on these cars.

Fail.

Have Scibaru announced their intention to build a ragtop version of the car yet?

They know the people purchasing this model will be replacing the wheels and tires with the package of their choice. No point in putting nice, expensive wheels on the car when they are just going to be replaced immediately anyway.

This "track pack" is designed for the Japan market, hence the less than stellar roll cage, seat and seat belts. That level of safety equipment seems to be the norm for Japan track day cars, and may not be up to the standard of what the US customer might expect.

You guys are taking this crap too seriously.

Did you REALLY think they'd put out a serious no-nonsense track ready version with ACTUAL track parts on it? LOL

This is 2013

Half the kids buying these (or having their parents buy them one) don't even know the function of a brake duct, or a lsd, or a multi-point harness


What I do kinda hope they do though, is create something similar to the Subaru wrx TR, or the mitsu evo RS, where it comes with cheaper seats, cheaper wheels, less accessories, and everything besides suspension/drivetrain dumbed down and cheapened up, so the car hopefully costs a significant amount less, and those that are actually going to track them can just replace all the stuff they would have anyway, saving a chunk of change in the process

Wouldn't that classify the car as an overhyped vehicle a hipster fanboy would buy?

they do make it easy to do an oil change:



so i mean there's that. and if you get a scion, the HU is actually designed as a true double din and you can easily replace it.

Of course.
Just like any other scion product with their numerous "factory upgrades".

That's why I'm suggesting they do a "bare bones" version. For those non-hipsters
