Chris Rado Sets New FWD Lap Record At Willow Springs With Ridiculous Front Spoiler Scion tC


Motorsports is all about bending the rules. And as they say, if you’re not cheating, you’re losing. Chris Rado and his World Racing Scion tC are not losing.

In fact, at the recent Redline Time Attack at Willow Springs Rado dominated in the front-wheel drive Unlimited class posting a 1:22.623 lap time – setting a new record for a front-wheel drive vehicle at the track.

How did he do it? Isn’t it obvious? He stuck a ridiculous looking wing on the front of his tC race car, giving those front tires all the downforce they need.

We’re certain all the other competitors laughed at him… while he sprayed them with champagne from the top of the podium.

i think its funny that honda guys are dissing on the front spoiler.. saying its all rice.. but they are stupid.. i think that front spoiler is a make or break item on his car.. and i give him props for making the tc more popular in the racing community.. what i want to know is.. is it still the scion motor or did you swap it with something else???
