Before we even get to the race car though, there’s some other big news that’s sure to please FR-S owners everywhere. Stout Racing has teamed up with TRD to produce a supercharger which will be made available to the public – which means all those Scion FR-S owners out there looking for more power, you’re going to get it. No details on the supercharger were released yet, but given the guidelines for the FR-S to compete with a supercharger, TRD will have to offer it for sale.
As for the race car itself, it will be driven by Robert Stout and will compete in the GTS class next season and will premiere at the first event on the Streets of St. Petersburg, March 2013.
For aero, Stout Racing chose to go with Vertex for its carbon fiber front splitter, pinned removable doors, rear-wing uprights, and custom tow hooks. Vertex was also in charge of fabricating the roll cage and rear fire wall.
As mentioned, the 2.0-liter engine will benefit from a TRD supercharger but will also be reinforced with pistons from JE. It’ll compete on 18-inch Volk Racing TE37 SL Black Edition wheels with Pirelli P-Zero rubber. Braking performance has been upgraded with a TRD big brake kit while the suspension has been overhauled with JRX and Vertex components.
