This time around, we are focusing on the suspension aspects of the Scion FR-S.  

For the test car, we are using Ryan Davis, of Yaer Productions, Argento FR-S.

Brian Hartsock will be taking the lead on the development of suspension components.

Above: Some of the raw components to be used.

He is currently testing some control arms on his daily driver AE86.  Brian understands what it takes to setup a car properly, he handles the setup for Kyle Pollard's FD car.  He  also drove the missile car at the last PARC event for the first time.  This was also his first time on track and the ebrake was not even working.

Brian has a lot of work ahead of him and hopefully have some components ready to test at the next PARC event.
