I am selling my 2013 Scion FRS track car, because I just dont' have enough time to drive it.
The car has 13,000 miles and was never raced. I only attended 8 HPDE track day event since the build :( I have a SCCA log book and cage is stamped, and will pass NASA inspection. I also have personal logs of every track days.
The car is fully functional, and ready to go. ABS, traction control and all electronics are fully working. Everything is functional except all airbag related sensors and radio/speaker system. Even the keyfob and remote trunk opening works. Electric windows and mirror also work. Some image may show the car with gutted doors without windows, but I later added fully functionning windows to help with car storage and enjoy AC on the grid ;)
While you want to disable all traction control at the track, beware of brz/frs without ABS/Traction control. ABS prevents flatspotting which happens very easily once disabled. Those who disable ABS are forced to add brake bias control to avoid intempestive locking.
AC is working but heater core was removed as it would not clear the roll cage knee bar. For those in colder climate, it can be retrofitted but will require some trimmimng. Or you can cut the knee bar from the cage and then the whole HVAC assembly will fit without problem.
The Scion FR-S is ton of fun around the track and to give you an idea I run around homestead in 1:49 in this car, while I was doing 1:46 with my 2003 Porsche 911. It is fast enough, maintenance and parts are super cheap and it is a fully caged cars, so you enjoy maximum safety in case something were to happen.
I decided to build this car after someone spilled its complete engine oil in turn 10 at Homestead. Luckily I saw the yellow flags and slowed down enough to avoid a bad crash. But after realizing something like that can happen at any time, I decided to go full cage.
The car is very easy to drive, and provide more feedback than my Porsche ! Of course the power is limited but if you want to master smooth and timely driver inputs that's the car for you.
I have tried my best to keep it looking as nice as possible inside out. The interior plastic have been trimmed to fit nicely around the roll cage. The roll cage was painted same as exterior color (metallic black called Scion raven black). At the same time the interior was fully resprayed as well to get a nice uniform finished paint inside the car. The wiring harness was trimmed to remove all airbags, interior lights and radio wires which polluted the interior. Everything was taped/clipped back as it was originally. I took the opportunity to remove the dash bar, which has a tendency to rust and powder-coated it gloss black. You can't see it unless you remove the dash... But that's how I like it :)
After gutting the door, I realized that I had enough space to actually keep functional doors because the daytona bars are not protruding that much. I went ahead and bought 2 doors from a junkyard, which have some small ding and scratches but overall very nice and painted OEM Raven black, matching the car. The front fenders, bumper and hood are not painted, they are still in their OEM primed color which is more or less flat black for the fender and 'plastic gloss black' for the bumper. The exterior paint behind the rear door is spotless. Interior plastic have small scratch from the build, but if your OCD kicks in, a center plastic console cost $50 from the dealer, that gives you an idea of how cheap these cars are to maintain.
The car is in perfect running condition and ready to hit the track right away. Not a single thing would need to be done to go on the track tomorrow. No shaking, no electric gizmos problem, everything just works.

The car is located in Fort Lauderdale. Title on hand. It is a salvage title. I bought the car from Copart with a minor accident front impact. I have photo of the car before the build started, showing the damages and build process.
The car is NOT tagged and NOT street legal
If you are not local, I will ask for the funds to clear before shipping can be arranged.
I could lower the price if you want the car with the stock suspension and stock front brakes, but these are really a nice upgrade. Brakes pads and rotors wear really fast on the stock system... and stock suspension is too high and soft.
What I would do if I were to keep it: add custom full body wrap or re-spray the front end that is still in primer color. I would also go ahead and add a nice data acquisition system along with a cool shirt system. That's about it. Keep the engine stock and you'll avoid any trouble and down time at the track.
Here is a list of things to consider:
-- dashboard open at the passenger airbag location, could be patched easily or replaced, dash comes out in 10 minutes.
-- center console plastic scratched
-- 'side skirt' under driver door has dent. only cosmetic not structural
-- fender and poor are not painted
-- door have small dings and scratch, 7/10 condition
-- front turn signal not connected, makes it easier to remove the bumper. rear one work
-- horn is not connected, somewhere in the hub quick disconnect.
-- windshield washer container removed, I have all the parts stored if needed.
-- heater core is not installed. I have the part and could be done but it is a custom job because of the knee bar going right through the HVAC box. AC and blowing fan are working with em dash controls.
