Ebay treasures: Most epic Corolla Levin AE86 for sale!

June 28, 2011 in ebay treasures

It is really a shame: the most epic AE86 is now for sale! 86jnosakuretu48te just put it up for sale in this Youtube video:

Looking at all the mods on this AE86 it is really something special (apart from starring in those the epic videos of course!) and I personally wouldn’t see him selling it at all. So perhaps someone lurking around here is willing to buy this icon? :P

Epic: the tunnel of (AE86) love!

Now these lovely love-sounds are just music in my ears!

The clip was made by Mouwt in a Corolla Levin AE86 with the use of on a set of Hayashi Streets (and SSR Mk1 rims) and a Janspeed exhaust.

Drift video: Suzumebachi attack! (part 2)

May 6, 2011 in drift video


Half a year ago I already featured another Suzumebachi attack! post, also with videos by JRotaro and ae86lan. Difference is that this time they have been shot from the inside of one of the hachis:

At first only two hachis make their drifts on the Mount Fuji drift course (next to the Fuji International Speedway) but slowly more and more hachis join in.

Here is another video with 10 minutes of those suzumebachi hornets going sideways:

Here is another one from inside the orange two door hachi with slightly less choppy sound:

At first this video may appear as it would be not that interesting, but from 2:30 onwards it starts to get very exciting! (including a four hachi tandem drift in the long corner)

And last but not least, a last one with the best driver of the bunch!

He is going almost flat out on the full track! Amazing!

Video: Chichibu touge videos from 1990

February 13, 2011 in video


I found ae86lan adding these videos to his favorites on Youtube. The three videos are footage of touge runs in May 1990 with mainly AE86s, AE82s and Starlets. I must warn that there is hardly any drifting involved in these videos: most cars car grip driving up and down the touges around Chichibu.

The Skyline lookalike tail lights in the beginning of the clip are from a Nissan Langley. You can also spot around 4:00 a Celica AA63 and around 5:00 a Carina AA63.

Here is another video from that very same night:

And last but not least, another one from a different night going up and downhill:

Commerical time: Girls dig the Corolla FX!

November 30, 2010 in Commerical time

Even though the AE86 was the most wanted Corolla during the last two decades, the AE82 was even more wanted in the decade before that: girls just loooooved them:

Now how many girls can you stuff in your hachi-roku? I only managed to get to three. ;)
