Okayama AE86 Festival 2009 videos

Okyama AE86 festival 2009 videos
The pictures of the Okayama AE86 Festival 2009 were posted last week by Garth. Slowly more pictures and videos are surfacing. :)

My personal favorite video of the festival is a game of leapmanji-frog played by four hachis on the straight of the circuit! Check em all out after the jump!


AE86 in At Musing’s End

At Musings End
Zemosh from found this short film, At Musing’s End by Wesley Chan, in the Cannes 2008 short films selection. It is a short film about daydreaming and the highs and lows of the relationship between Adam and Robin. One of the most important scenes in this movie includes a US 2-door Corolla GT-S coupé owned by Adam.

This narration by Robin especially caught me:

His new car… It was the oldest new car she had ever seen. Why he wanted such a thing completely escaped her. A work in progress he claimed. She hated that car. Not because he spent more money on it than her, not because nothing inside worked, or because it always smelled like sweat and grease. She hated it because it was red. An ugly red, like an unflattering sweater he insisted on wearing all the time…

Why do I have the feeling all the above just hits the nail on its head? Personal experience? Seen it too often at other hachi owners as well? :D At Musing’s End from Wesley Chan on Vimeo.

Antiguan AE86 with 3SGTE

An oldie but a goodie. It’s always nice to see the AE86s charm reaching as far wide as places like Antigua. If you’re wondering where Antigua is click here to learn!

Jono Bennett’s F20C Weapon

The stance on this Levin is just pure sex, and the decals are some of the freshest and most unique I’ve seen on a racecar in a long time! No less that it’s powered by two liters of VTECs!

The First Rally AE86!

Probably the first AE86 used in motorsports!

The picture above is showing the first usage of the Toyota AE86 in Rally sports and possibly also the first use of the AE86 in motorsports at all!

The screenshot was taken from a collection of videos (13 in total!) of the first AE86 to be entered the All Japan Rally Championship B Class. This particular round was held on June 4th and 5th 1983.  Since Toyota first started the AE86 production in May 1983, these brand new hachis must still have smelled like a typical 1983-era Japanese Toyota showroom when they rolled up to compete in this rally!

Hit the jump for the videos and more history!


DeadPirate x Tommy Suell’s AE86

Just a quick video from me today. Apologies for the late posting, had far too much fun on the slopes this weekend on my snowboard and completely KO’d before I could write up a blog. Enjoy this tasty morsel of drift action from DeadPirateProductions for now, and we are back to normal programming tomorrow!

Goto-San In Action

Okay, we all saw pictures of Goto-san’s insane boro AE86 by Alexi Smith at Nori Yaro and we all saw videos of him drifting near the sidewall on several drift events and circuits but what you probably didn’t see yet (unless you read this article at is what it looks like to sit next to him!


Why You Should Keep Your 4A-C

What is the first thing asked by a ADM Sprinter or USDM SR5 owner on the forums? 9 out of 10 will ask what it takes to do a 4A-C to 4A-GE swap… Why? Is it really necessary? We show you the unpopular (yet super cool) alternative!


Mixed Bag Battle!

What happens when you pit a handful of AE86s against a Civic Type-R, CRX, Celica, Cappuccino and an MX-5? Find out with parts 2, 3 & 4 here!

DTCC One Make Race


The DTCC is an AE86 one-make series from Japan which has a very strict set of rules to ensure what they call ‘close battle’ racing.  The only engine allowed is an NA 4A-GE with bore modifications permitted but the stroke must remain the same. The block MUST be a 4A block, both 16v and 20v are allowed for entry and all other mods are open.
