FT86


1
In the last five years, Subaru, and certainly Toyota have done lots with the FT86 platform.  We’ve seen minor iterations from the production car, and a few interesting special edition models.  On the motorsports front, both STI and Gazoo have put out some great looking and functional competition machines.  In terms of concept cars, we’ve seen convertibles, and sedans, and […]

Newest Dream Car?


IMO the SCCA’s dealing with the FRS/BRZ twins in street class has been a bit of a cluster fuck.  Optional TRD suspension packages that were supposedly port installed (although no one ever saw a case when they weren’t dealer installed) really messed up the perceived balance between the twins and created a lot of controversy.  The optional parts almost certainly […]

When famed engine tuner Jun is swapping out FA20’s rather than building them up, it seems like the future is bleak for FA20 owners. That said… I did add this photo to my background image roll. Certainly looks drool worthy… but when projecting 58.XXX Tsukuba times, I wonder if Jun is confusing RPM and number of throttle bodies with actual […]
