There’s always a first for everything, and today we are proud to bring you Canada’s very first Rocket Bunny Scion FRS. OpenRoad Scion approached us with an idea to create a mind blowing project that would skyrocket across the country. There was only one way we could make that happen, and it was to bring forth something Canada has never seen yet.
The Rocket Bunny kit is undoubtedly the most talked about adaptation of this pure driving machine as it features a complete widebody overhaul. With a mere 15km on the odometer, we sliced off the the rear quater panel and front fenders in preparation for the brand new fender flares. Along with the widened fenders, the kit also included a aerodynamic gt wing, front lip, sideskirts, and a rear diffuser. We’ve always believed in paying attention to all the details, which is why the headlights feature a bespoke smoked housing, and the emblems and tailights have a candy red coating. To complete the exterior we added some carbon fiber goodies, such as a Seibon hood, APR mirrors, and Seibon fog light covers.
Once the kit was installed, we then proceeded with our favorite part of the build; the suspension and wheels. To bring the car down to the ground, we installed a set of BC Racing coilovers which feature a custom 10kg spring rate. Since the coilovers were fully height and dampening adjustable, we were able to preciously calculate the best setup for the FRS. The wheels were courtesy of one of our favorite manufactures of all time, Rays. The 57Extreme model hails from Rays Gram Lights catalog and featured a staggered size of 18×9.5 and 18×10.5. The ‘winning blue’ finish was a perfect compliment to Scion’s Firestorm Red exterior.
The final touch was an Invidia catback exhaust system, which aligned with the new rear diffuser perfectly. The exhaust created a strong driving experience, as it featured a low deep growl which was perfect in our ears.
