I am curious where the engine weight loss came from. Having owned both the plastic IM and Red Al IM I can say there is way less than a kg between them.

I kinda fear toyota went a little overboard - which isnt to say thats not a lot of fun.

I mean I see the 'king of drift' saying one thing, while I'm seeing a completely different thing.

He said 86 very stable. I'm watching the rear seem to unload and go very unstable under breaking. I'm seeing on oversteer the rear looking like its a struggle for drivers to quite get the feel of it because perhaps its wanting to snap - making the driver pull off throttle and regain traction as a natural instinct?

Whereas I'm watching the BRZ seem almost telepathic drifting for drivers. Way more stable.

I really cant wait to hear from international journalists.

I'm surprised too - my information from the dealers training session was that it gained weight.

Did we already add the spring rates? cant see them - here they are.

Quite divergent, in addition to everything else.

Spring rates
GR86 Front 28Nm / mm (2.856kg / mm)
GR86 Rear 39Nm /mm (3.9779kg / mm)

BRZ Front 30Nm / mm (3.059kg / mm)
BRZ Rear 35Nm /mm (3.57kg / mm)

For reference, (someone please correct me if I am wrong) the OG 86 was (I only have kg / mm)

OG86 Front 2.3kg / mm
OG86 Rear 3.8k / mm
