Default RallySport Direct's 2014 FR-S(Cosworth, Rocket Bunny)



How we got here.


After our BRZ build, we wanted to do something a bit more performance oriented, and we decided on a new Scion FR-S as the base to start our build. We know we wanted this car to produce good, reliable power, so naturally we turned to our good friends at Cosworth to help this car along the way to get the power it desperately needs. Now with the future power goals figured out, we wanted to make sure this car was going to handle all of that power out on the track, so we knew we needed some really sticky and wide tires, but the tires we wanted would not fit under the stock wheel wells, so naturally we turned looked for wide body kits and we loved the way the Rocket Bunny kit allowed us the room we needed for some massive rubber, while still looking great. Next we addressed the suspension with some track ready KW Clubsports to give the car the adjustability and handling the car was needing. Well all is great, but the car needs to stop right? Enter in the beautiful Big Brake kit from Stoptech, with 355mm rotors up front and 245mm rotors in rear, we finally got all the stopping power we needed with some to boot all wrapped up in a gorgeous package that just looks at home under the Enkei Wheels.

But we won't stop there, we intend to take this car much further to see just how quick we can make it. We do have some power goals in mind, but we are going to keep that under wraps for now, but do expect to see many updates from us as we progress with this build. We have gone from stock to this in a very short period of time, and I can't wait to see where we go with the car in the future, so stay tuned!

Let's go back in time briefly. Here is how it all started!

The car was delivered to us with 45 Miles, an empty tank of gas, and was just incredibly filthy from the journey. Good start right?



So First things first, we need to give it a good scrubbing.



Without so much as a proper drive, I pulled it into the shop, getting ready to tear it apart. I wanted to make sure it started it's life with us as a proper widebody car



More updates to come!
Thanks,
Rick

Just wanted to post up a quick update of what I was working on yesterday.



I should be able to get it all bolted in today. I am so stoked to have a proper LSD in the car!

Thanks,
Rick

We have had a bunch of requests for the Nameless ECU bracket, so I went ahead and installed one The coating on this thing is awesome, almost like a hard satin, it's a bit hard to describe.

Well I am back from SEMA and my brain is feeling mostly back from normal. What an amazing week and it was truly an honor to be working with Cosworth on this project!

I truly am very lucky to be able to build cars like these as my job. It's been an amazing journey from stock to where it is at now and I'm really excited to see what else we do with and to this car.

When we had the BRZ we had a different direction in mind, and we wanted to build a more track oriented car, so we started with a clean slate and bought the FR-S.

Rick
