Scion unveiled the RS*R tC, a Formula Drift model based on the most popular model, the tC sports coupe. The RS*R Scion tC features a 3SGE Beams motor, HKS GT3037 turbo and intercooler, Blitz Dual SBC boost controller, and AEM EMS engine management system that outputs more than 400 hp, compared to the stock 161 hp.
A G-Force five-speed sequential transmission, Tilton triple carbon clutch, Project Mu brakes, RS-R coilovers, Sparco Corsa seats and a custom concept wide body kit also make this vehicle unique. This tC will gracefully maneuver the track with Enkei RPF1 wheels and Toyo Proxes R1R™ tires.
The RS*R Scion tC, also sponsored by Toyo Tires and XM Satellite Radio, will make its first appearance at Formula Drift’s Round 1, Streets of Long Beach in Calif. on April 12. The event will also be broadcast nationally on ESPN2.
