Arrow Dai Yoshihara's 2014 Falken Tire/Discount Tire Subaru BRZ Reveal

Quote:
Dai Yoshihara finally moved on from his trusty 240SX S13 coupe to a brand new turbocharged V8 Subaru BRZ. Dai brought his new car to Mark Arcenal's illest OC store in Southern California to debut his new car's livery which was a contest winning design created in Forza Motorsport 5. Here is a quick video of the debut of the livery as Dai personally rolls the car into the illest OC parking lot.

I've never been a fan of shells of cars with large motors from other cars. I'm sure technically the swap is impressive, and I'm sure the power is even more impressive but somehow, in my mind, it feels like cheating.

unfortunately, formula d has no restrictions on tq/hp and what engines you can or cant use. cheapest drift car setup would probably be 240sx with LS swap.

I have similar feelings, but it is impressive to see. Note that these things are occuring becasue the shell that Subaru has made is as technically impressive (if not more so) than any motor swap.

I think it would be cool to see rules that only allow swaps for blocks from the same manufacturer: IE: Vipers can only have a mopar motor (8.4L v10, 6.4L V8 SRT, 6.4L Ram V8 ect), FR-S can only have the FA-20, 2JZ ect, the BRZ can have the FA20, EJ25 ect. I really want to see a 11+:1 CR e85 Turbo BRZ for formula D revving out to 9000rpm. You would only need 3rd gear and would have all of the torque you need.

Honestly who cares if they added a V8 from another vehicle...if the car had the option people would buy it. The Tundra is about to be available with a CUMMINGS. A motor is nothing more then a powerplant. Shoot the tranny in our cars arent made by subaru or toyota. It looks to be a well put together vehicle...maybe more coverage will mean more support and parts at cheaper prices. The longer they make the twins the better for us.

But doesn't the powerplant define a vehicle almost more than any other part? To me that isn't a BRZ, it's something else. It's a BRZ body with X motor. The S13 he had before didn't have the famed SR20 or even a Skyline motor, both of which have been in a variety of drift cars, both capable of putting out numbers which can burn any tire off any rim...yet it had an LS7.

For me, the essence of what a car is resides mainly in it's powerplant. Take that away and it's no longer that car. It's...something else.

So when I see a BRZ drag car run 9's...but doing it with a built, turbo H6 I appreciate the effort, the build, but it's not a BRZ any more.

If you put a 4 cylinder Civic motor in a Veyron, would you still call it a Veyron?

It's pretty cool how the livery was designed by a Forza player.

Not to most people...swaps in cars have been happening since theres been cars. You get a 4cyl mustang put a V8 in it is that OK? Of course. You get a light car put a big motor in it. Thats a common thing.
