O.M.T. or “one more time” is a phrase chanted by fans and judges during a tandem battle during a drift competition that is too close to determine a winner and deserves another run.

The first 86fest was such a popular event that I’m sure everyone was screaming “one more time” and the end of the event. And after months and months of planning, Antonio Alvendia, (@antoniosureshot) of MotorMavens and crew gave the world what they all wanted, 86fest2!

“There is no doubt that the Scion FR-S is going to be the dominant and prominent cars [sic] at SEMA this year, and I’ll go out on a limb and say the same will happen again at the 2013 SEMA Show.”

Neil could not have been more right in his prediction. The SEMA show is always a really, really, really big show. To put things into context, the SEMA show brings all parts of the auto industry, domestic and international; buyers and exhibitors; styling and performance to tools and accessories, anything you can think of it’s probably there; and then some! Now spread that out through the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, which consists of 3 halls, with one having a second floor, and then the entire outside parking lot. Yup, it’s big.

There’s no surprise on why the Scion FR-S was awarded the hottest sports compact vehicle this year. With a show that big you’d be sure to see all sorts of vehicles, well this year you still could have, but there was not a single area of the convention center that you couldn’t take a few steps and spot a Scion FR-S (or Subaru BRZ). It was almost maddening, maybe even giving some a sense of hysteria!

But all is good, let’s take a look at some of the different FR-S builds at the show. And a few other stand outs.

Whether in the parking lot chillin’ or on the track tossing it around, its just looked cool. That line can be said about either the Scion FR-S or 86Fest from this past weekend. MotorMavens’ Antonio Alvendia and his crew put together a nice blend of car show and track day festivities at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. It was a perfect celebration for the whole 86 platform (AE86/FRS/BRZ).
