You Should Be Following
Browsing the forums, scanning through automotive blogs, and following people around in social media are all great ways to find unique and interesting build threads, but why do the work when we’ve done it for you? We’ve compiled a short list of 5 Scion FR-S build threads you might have skipped over or just didn’t bother reading through because your boss caught you slacking off at work again. As we find more awesome build threads we’ll be posting them up here on our blog so keep and eye out for even more build threads worth a read in the future.
Sin City has spawned many insidious creations over the years, but nothing quite as mean looking as Concept-Three-LED’s Asphalt FR-S. Black Crave Mach7 wheels, blacked out headlights, blacked out taillights, Seibon carbon fiber trunk, hood, lip, diffuser, and sideskirts – this thing screams murdered out. Even the shift knob and emblems are black!
This isn’t a one-trick-pony by any means. Enhancing both performance and providing a healthy grunt are an Airaid cold air intake and an HKS Spec L cat-back exhaust system accompanied by R1 Concepts rotors for aided braking power. You can read more about their progress as time goes by and while you’re at it. Check out their list of available products available for the FR-S/BRZ as well!
Not every build thread worth following has fifty pages of coverage from various automotive blogs, and Digital Assassin’s Five Axis Scion FR-S proves it. Modest, clean modifications outline the exterior of the car. Black seems to dominate anything that visible light touches along the ouside, starting with the Advan RSII wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports, crouched on a set of KW V3 coilovers. A flat black Grazio badge waits to be seated on the front of the car between two Morimoto BiXenon Retrofitted headlights. The icing on the cake surrounds the entire lower body. Am OEM Five Axis kit compliments the wheel and suspension setup, seemingly gluing the the car to the ground.
The real treat is inside this black beauty. Nothing is truly custom if the guy next to you can hop online and order the same modification you just did. Knowing this, DA opted get down and dirty with a bit of sandpaper and epoxy. Surrounding his Kenwood headunit is a completely custom wrapped console, done up in 3M matte carbon. Check out the step by step photos in his build thread!
If you haven’t seen this man’s car by now, well, that’s just not possible. Regardless, it’s worth sharing his build thread and giving a respectable tip of the hat to Mr. Kochis. He’s built one of southern California’s finest and most unique widebody Scion FR-S’s to date.
Featuring parts from Rocket Bunny, Forgestar, Stop Tech, Toyo, Takata, Injen, 6666 Customs, and even us here at Yospeed, it’s abundantly clear that this man has good taste in mods. The most notable mods are probably his custom designed subwoofer featuring the infamous pig king. Check out his build thread, along with his website: www.istaycrushing.com
You might assume that the sibling rivalry between RWDRIFT and Staycrushing is “lava hot”, but you’d be mistaken. These two builds, while similar in many aspects, are both worth following.
Whiteline, Forgestar, Beatsonic, Eneos, Spyder Auto, and you guessed it, Rocket Bunny, all contributed in the creation of this remarkable build. Literally every nook and cranny of this vehicle is packed with performance and beauty. Carbon fiber engulfs the front console with diamond stitching covering the side panels. The engine is force-fed with a Vortech supercharger and protected by a carbon fiber engine cover. I could go on, but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Check them out in his build thread on ft86club!
Doggy (DCW Owner)
Last but certainly not least, Doggy has a knack for making things his own. There’s something about a Scion FR-S with custom, well, everything that I love. The attention to detail, the craftsmanship, all of it weaves together to form what is one of the coolest and unique interior designs on the forum to date.
A single din conversion surrounded by red carbon fiber accents is what draws most people in, the kicker is sitting down below all that in between the two front seats. Positioned just before the shifter is a custom center console plaque. Not just any custom plaque mind you, but one that glows Firestorm red when activated! Check out the video below and prepare to have your mind blown.
