I'd buy that front bumper and side skirts.... Dats about it though. I can put some carbon on my own damn hood and call it a day.

The japanese do this with all their cars. The japanese are very fond of suspension and aero tuning. They build cars with their intended characteristics out of the box and any factory changes and revisions afterwards usually tend to address aero and suspension rather than power.

just look at the ap1 s2000, the ap2, and the cr. the power jump was never that great. only halo cars like the GTR get power bumps to sway buyers of its competition.

you wouldn't see any sort of crazy power jump like an american company, such as dodge's challenger hellcat. power jumps are more of an american/european approach.

Appearance packs?

FYI, this post isn't pointing directly at you.

Orido & Taniguchi didn't have much problem w having light tandem drift the bone stock 86's (only difference is they upped the tire psi)

Drift isn't a thing? How about autox? This year's National STX class 1st place drove the twin & STXL 1,2,3 twins finish. Or Yamano driving BRZ taking gymkhana champion.

Wanna go crazy? BRZ GT300. All other GT300 have crazy big V8, I6 & V10 engine and BRZ is pull fastest lap time from 2L engine to be in pole position more than other GT300 competitors.

All of em by any means have shit load of hp (except GT300). There are enough owners already wrapping their twins around trees/poles with (almost) stock power. Can't even control 200hp and want more power? Blaming lack of driving skill for lack of power/tires or whatever, is pure joke. Cry to Miata owner and see what they say... cuz they'll prob laugh. I don't remember AE86 had snail under the hood as TRD upgrade. Hell, They only lasted few years (4yrs to be correct).

Honestly, I don't agree with this $60k 86, it's VERY steep for this car... BUT with all the modification it has on it (which btw has well over $45k parts) and R&T test, air tunnel test and countless hours designed "functional" parts (& don't get me started on BS aero & other so called "functional" parts aftermarket company makes) it's well worth $60k. Is 14R60 for everyone? No, there are only handful (100 to be correct) to understand how much this car is worth and willing to fork over that $60k.

Instead of crying and bitching bout how engine don't have power or how expensive parts are, how about appreciate Toyota & Subaru for actually bringing parts out instead of left you nothing like AE86.

That's just my 2cents

For $60k.. this car is very cheap for all the associated mods.

I love how all the people in this thread saying the car hasn't had any power mods and this car is rice pretty much have hardly modified cars themselves.

Sure, lightweight flywheel, revised gearing, forged magnesium wheels and a retuned TRD ecu won't add any more power

Keen to see if this part will trickle down to be an aftermarket accessory though!


otoh, I've a feeling these will be collectors items so would be a shame if someone wacked a SC or turbo onto them.

WTF guys, did none of you "omg no engine mods" actually click the link.

If you did you would see they actually did modify it. Pretty sure it's putting out more power than you naysayers

Pic for proof

When I think "rice" here I envision mods more along the lines of underbody lighting, stickers or graphics, or big mothern' wings that do nothing.

I am sure that what they did with the tranny alone would have half the people on here drooling if they drove it!
