      At least the tire looks salvageable.
      If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.

      Prediction: eventually someone with an on-call attorney will sue Toyota/Scion for this since their commercial shows this car able to effortlessly drift through turns.

      Reminds me of the day after opening night of Tokyo Drift. There were a ton of fresh tire marks all around work since we're next to a movie theater. Best were the ones on the onramp that went into the wall.

      Silly amateurs.

      Does not look like MS paint. Must be dent there or something which a body shop drew on. There is another circle by the door handle.

      I heard one the other day, and they actually sound really good.

      They can't go fast enough yet.

      FR-S/BRZ drives towards tree's due to driver failure. - - - Tree gets tired of waiting, and moves out of the way.

      That would be a nicer set of numbers if it were from the factory and not stretching the max potential.

      What effect does that have on the reliability/lifespan/warranty etc. I'd be happy if toyota/subaru released a kit that could achieve this performance and still maintain warranty.
