Yes I know: that’s a very blunt statement but as I see it there is a lot of truth in that. Apart from that it was meant to say I’m currently not hopping on the 86 bandwagon, not writing the same as thousands of bloggers out there and simply just stick to the real deal: AE86 deathrace in Hokkaido!
Incredible how wild these guys throw their hachis around the track. Insanely close guardrail slides with the occasional tip over the tirestack to keep the audience awake. Well, actually I don’t think they were sleeping at all: they are just cheering to them to go closer!
Don’t get me wrong: the 86 is definitely one of the best engineered cars and it has got beautiful styling, but it is not the AE86. It is not an entry level car, not a light weight FR and on top of it all: it is currently hyped.
