Personally I'm unsure how they expect it to be on the same level as the FT56/FRS/BRZ if they are going to make it FWD...
Looks like it'll compete against the Scion TC...

either way I dont see it having a hope....if it was a small/light rwd I could see it doing ok.

the world needs more rwd sports cars but not another tarted up hot hatch.
This! Whatever happened to all of the semi-affordable rwd sports cars? Everything keeps getting fatter with all of the luxury and creature comforts. Strip it down to bare bones and save weight and money! Why is that the car manufacturers have not done this yet? Why can't they offer a tuner/driver package like honda did with the S2000 CR??

How is that throttle body? Is it worth the $300?
Bummer you're having issues with your car.

My experience with the fswerks tune has been positive. I remember all the factory glitches my last svt had when it was stock. My new svt drives so much better with the tune.

I've only put 13 miles on the throttle body but it put a smile on my face right away. The throttle response just felt so much better, especially from take off.
