Bandimere Speedway kicked off its drag season with the explosive annual event, NAPA Auto Parts Night of Fire and Thunder last Saturday, May 18th. Jet Cars, Nitro Cars and Domestic Drag Racers put on a show for a good cause. And Revvolution of the Rockies was there to enjoy a little sensory overload.
Back in April, we covered the Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack, where we sponsored the Domestic Class Winner. When we first arrived, we noticed all the usual high-powered American suspects—Ford GTs, Camaros, Mustangs, and Corvettes—but one car in particular stood out. We were positive that the Twin Turbo Ford GT nicknamed the “Black Mamba” would be the car to beat and also the one we featured. We couldn’t have been more wrong.
Welcome to the first installment in a series of Revvolution articles where we reflect on the global nationalistic genres (or scenes) that define OUR enthusiast landscape. Domestic, Euro, and Japanese are just some of the dominant cliques that we all identify with. But here at Revvolution, beaming our signal straight from the heart of the Rockies, we present the first chapter in this series: The American Dream.
The sun was barely peeking out from the clouds on that cold Cinco de Mayo. But it was the season's first Drift Colorado Point Series event at IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono, Colorado. Cold for us, but it was the perfect temperature for turbochargers to suck in all the cool air they wanted and keep those engines happy.
When it was announced that the FR-S and BRZ were going to hit the streets, the buzz started immediately. Many new owners of these cars looked at them as alternatives to the beloved Supras, which are getting harder and harder to find unmodified and at a reasonable budget. People loved the look and handling of the compact, lightweight sports car, but it became clear that if left alone it was going to have one weak spot—power. This is an in-depth look at Inline Racing's Turbocharged Scion FR-S.
