Just curious if the mindset is as different as I heard or if they really feel the same way.
I don't live in Japan, but drive 86's in Japan quite often (most recently one week ago), have many friends with 86's there, and am part of a Japanese 86 club. The power is completely fine for Japanese roads.
The fun roads are extremely technical, and the highways have low speed limits.
The only people I hear complain about the 86's power are generally people who live in areas with lots of straight roads and no very technical tight roads. Not one of my friends feel the car is underpowered, but many of them also come from owning original Hachiroku.
In terms of American areas, places that have a mixture of city streets and tight technical mountain roads are well suited to the 86. An area like that is Southern California, and many owners find the power level of the 86 well suited to this area too.
