First time I've seen 86 RC running

Enjoy!

Nice, notice at 6:22 he's doing 104kph in 2nd gear so I take it that it will do 60mph in 2nd!

I think some JDM models have longer gearing than the US Spec.

I know the RC spec 86 came with some minor upgrades for a pretty penny, but did they add any performance? Sounds pretty much stock..

Nevermind, did some readings... pretty much a track ready 86 "The RC Spec will be void of the usual perks like air conditioning and cup holders, as well as the underfloor, intake manifold cover, and boot lamp." "he fascia cover and plastic covering for the steering wheel and gear shifter were also stripped. The exterior also gets minimized with unpainted front and rear bumpers, exterior mirrors, and door handles, and the 17" alloy wheels were replaced with 16" steel wheels. As a result, the GT 86 RC Spec is about 132 lbs lighter and consumes less fuel than the standard GT 86."

The tc light is flashing in both cars - why hasn't he turned it fully off?

The angle of the driver in that video was awesome. It's nice to see how down shifting affects the RPM. The auto does look kinda boring, but the shifts are pretty fast.
