Round 2: GR Inspired Hakone 86

Welp.... I finally caved.

I've been on this forum for years now, since around the beginning. Had a 2013 FRS that had some decent stuff to it. Still N/A, but Todoroki fenders, 18" Mag Blue TEs, Leg Sport duckbill, Tomei stuff etc etc.


Opted to get rid of that and move to a 2016 STI. The car was obviously quicker, more practical, and it was a lot of fun for very little money, with regards to modifying. Got to drive events at Willow Springs, Autoclub, Laguna Seca, and more.


After that, I moved back to AZ for a career change and wanted to focus on that. So I sold the STI and got a 2019 Crosstrek. Didn't do anything with it. Just drove from A to B every day. Good little car.

But I've been sitting for a while wanting something else. I got a 240sx in August of last year that I started working on and after a couple months, I quickly remember why I always said I never wanted another one. Constantly spending time and money on the thing, I just got burnt out. So I sold it a little over a month ago.

Then I was continuing the debate in my head between an ND, a CTR, or another 86/BRZ. Kind of an odd cross comparison, I know, but I liked them all for different things. The lack of practicality was the big negative for the ND. The markup people are STILL asking for on CTRs was a turn off. The only thing about the 86 was that I already owned one and kind of wanted a change.

Nobody is making anything right now though, and I don't see anything promising coming in the near future. So I decided to finally cave in.




2020 Hakone 86. I fell in love with the color when I saw the press release. Wasn't a fan of the interior, but it's better in person than in photos. Still not my absolute favorite, but I can't see the tan when I'm sitting in it and driving it, so who cares? lol

Anyways, when the world finally calms back down, I'll start playing with this thing again at events and such. No drifting. Just HPDE stuff. Simple suspension, wheels/tires, and so on. Nothing crazy or that hasn't already been done. Looking forward to enjoying driving again though. It's been too long.
