A stock AE86 is a car with an aftermarket LSD, coilovers, RCA’s, exhaust and intake, seats, steering wheel and baseball bat fenders. No one… I mean NO ONE wants to drive an AE86 that is truly stock, and NO ONE since 1997 has ever owned an AE86 that was truly unmodified.
I thought ZN6/ZC6/FT86 would be slightly different, and it probably is… but winter restlessness is freaking killing me. I’m to the shopping phase: catback exhaust, coilovers, 9J wheels, TRD louvers, all that cool bolt on shit that people were excited about when this car came out two years ago.
Now…. in 2015… there is a new car revolution in progress, and for better or worse the FT86 has fallen OTB. Every new car has a flat plane V8 or two turbos and three electric motors. All of a sudden the FT86 looks like an honest hachiroku with 90hp and a solid rear axle.
Luckily I’m used to being in this position.
