ZN6 - Blitz x Cusco Track Build

Lava GT86 journey –
I purchased this car from another member on the forum back in March of 2020 as a fun summer car. The focus of this vehicle is to be a simple seat time track car that can still get me around town.

I am sourcing most parts through Sean Yack @ Subieland Canada, if you have any questions feel free to reach out.

I like this photo. It's different than most others. It tells a story. There is action, somehow, without any movement. It almost tells a story about grassroots motorsports, and has good composition and lighting. Well done!

Of course! When the bumper comes off in the spring for the oil cooler + some lighting upgrades, the bumper plate will be replaced as well.

Thank you! It's definitely one of my favorite pictures I have thus far. With the new wheels I'm looking forward to recreating this exact picture (and get back out on track ).
