I think the complaints of power are a little much at this point. The spent money making it handle well and I think that was a better place for improvement. Plus, most users are going to try and upper power on any car, so this gives you reason :)

And with you, love these damn cars!!!

Take a look at how much that kit costs. Its more than all the Tracs for sale right now lol! I drove one last week just to see how it felt and I liked it. Very easy to control at the limits, pitches well, and holds the road effortlessly. I plan to get one as a daily once home life is a little more stable.
Also I was told by a Toyota engineer that the engine and trans side of the wiring was designed so it could be removed from the multiplex system and all the other systems would still function normally. I tend to believe him as everything else he told me about it 4 years ago has come true lol.
When I get one its going to take every fiber of my being not to put a 3s in it lol!

In the snow, I agree. 0-60 or 1/4, the FR-S has them beat. Still prefer my alltrac, but if this thing could fit an AWD system under it I might have a different vehicle.

I dont think the FR-S is faster in the 1/4 mile.....I just dont understand why they didnt make it Turbo....It would be selling like chicken and waffles.

it is already selling well enough with waiting lists around the world.
If I remember correctly, Toyota and Subaru have agreed to a restriction in significant changes to the engine resulting in a 1 year base model before offering upgraded versions including turbos.

The research I have done makes it look like the 0-60 and 1/4 are faster.

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupes/1204_2013_scion_fr_s_first_test/viewall.html
0-60 6.2
QUARTER MILE 14.8 sec @ 94.3 mph

http://www.zeroto60times.com/Toyota-0-60-mph-Times.html Not sure on the accuracy
1990 Toyota Celica All-Trac
0-60 mph 7.4
Quarter mile 15.5

I would expect the FR-S to be a little faster since there is less drivetrain lost and it has newer tech, but, still doesnt make it better :) The FR-S is just a sexy bitch!

Well, considering that almost all the alltracs that I know are modified for considerably more power than stock, chances of a FR-S meeting up with an alltrac and being 'faster' are slim, really slim.
