2013 Scion FR-S: Stability Control No Longer a Must

October 8, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

At the end of August I drove our 2013 Scion FR-S home on dead Yokohamas and was quickly convinced that its stability control was a genuine ally.

Now, with the new BFGs, that's no longer the case.

The grip of the new tires has given the FR-S its manners back. No longer do I find myself activating the stability control at the slightest provocation. In fact, there's striking grip from a standing start. I suspect we will now fully realize the acceleration that was missing in our first test of our supercharged FR-S.
