While all the journalists of any importance were drooling over all the Toyota 86-es and Subaru BRZs at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2013 these guys were actually having some fun in the real 86-es at a circuit day organized by Auto Service Ito!
Who cares about 86-es and BRZs at the Tokyo Auto Salon when you can actually have fun with the real deal!
What? Hilarious posting on Wednesday? Something up? Yes indeed, there is something up! I received an message from Koken that I should check out something great… The two videos were by 86jnosakuretu48te again and this time outdoes himself, in the first one he does the McDonalds run again (he thought the last one wasn’t shot properly) but this time he finishes off with a cigarette:
Well even electric ones do count as cigarettes!
The second one is even madder than the first one, he reads an erotic magazine while drifting (don’t worry: it has been censored):
I guess he gets distracted quickly!
Edit 2-7-2010: I kind of exepected this already… The video violated the terms of Youtube and was removed… He now uploaded the “censored” version above, which should be clearly visible again if you wear 3d glasses! Edit 3-7-2010: Even the 3d version got removed!! He now reposted it now with a nice mosaic blocking the image!
Last week I already posted 86jnosakuretu48te’s Mc Donalds drift run and if you watched it right till the end you would have noticed him drifting Ebisu North reverse and entering the Paddock with insane speed. He wasn’t alone that day: ae86lan joined him and captured some of his insanity on video:
This is not the same run as the Mc Donalds run, but I think you get the picture.
I did know about the existence of turbo-ed 2T and 3T engines, but bi-turbo?
If you look well enough you can see a big intercooler behind the cutted front air dam. Also where the grille used to be an oil cooler has been placed. It is unknown which engine has been used for the swap, but it is surely a bi-turbo diesel engine. (probably a 2L-T hilux diesel engine)
The original car appears to be a TA60 Carina coupe and its 31 years old Finish owner takes really good care of it:
Yep, that’s how easy it is to get a Carina sideways when you have loooooads of torque! I wonder how long it will take before D1GP will be flooded with diesel engines.
