Scion FR-S Drifting Video Released
However, while acceleration and top speed can be easily quantified, handling can’t. Yes, lap times do help, but they don’t tell the complete story. So, does the FR-S really handle well?
The answer lies in the adjacent video (via SpeedHunters.com), which shows a drifting session with the FR-S in the main role. The vehicle is being manhandled sideways by Formula Drift driver Ken Gushi, on the Sodegura Forest Raceway in Chiba, Japan.
The vehicle seems to be pretty easy to convince to let the tail out and gives us the impression that it can perfectly cater to sideways transportation needs. You can watch the video yourself and draw your own conclusion.
