Quenching and Tempering: Tony Angelo’s Scion FR-S – Part 3


Solid Steering Rack Bushings
Pat now demonstrates how the solid bushings fit into the FR-S steering rack. The longer piece will go in first.

Then, the back half of the busing will go in to complete the install. It looks like you do not remove the outer shell of the original bushing. That wasn't so bad.
Stance Suspension
Mike “Carluch” Edwards came down to get familiar with the car and add his help with finishing the chassis. Mike is a long time friend of Tony's, a Drift Alliance Ace, and will serve as one of the mechanics to work on the car. Since he will be the go-to guy for the repairs and adjustments on the car, now is not a bad time to take a look into how the car is put together. He'll also assist with painting the car.
Fuel Cell Battery Mount FR-S
Next up is the fabrication of the fuel cell and battery mount points. Cutting out the spare wheel tub area allows for room in mounting each of these parts. Tony has not announced his fuel cell of choice as of this writing, but it's a safe bet that it will be one of the best in the business.
FR-S Tear Down Tony Angelo
After all that work to put parts on the car, test them, and make the adjustments to get them to fit, Tony and the TAngelo Racing bunch have to remove all of it for painting. Now, we wait on the paint and the rest of the parts to start flying in. Yes, it is time to get excited people!
