November 2015 The Shop 103 November 2015 The Shop 103 The Mackin Industries-owned 2013 Scion FR-S first debuted at the SEMA Show in 2013 as a Time Attack build. When the opportunity arose earlier this year to compete at the 93 rd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado Springs, the team jumped at the chance. With only two months to prepare the car, Mackin immediately contacted some industry leaders for support, including: Greddy Performance, Toyo Tires, Turn14 Distribution and Eva- sive Motorsports. The end result is a highly modified Scion FR-S that puts down 480 whp, 365 foot-pounds of torque with total wet vehicle weight of 2,896 pounds with driver. Mackin will display the car again this year at the SEMA Show with a dif- ferent engine package. Visit the booth #22813, to see what now sits under the hood.
