AE86 related youtube clips that you need to see!

Lone Hachiroku @ International Drift Series


It has been a while since I last posted some news from Europe but we have been very busy over the past few weeks. We had a few trackdays in France and Germany (Nordschleife) with some interesting results.


AE86 Downhill @ Irohazaka

Downhill at Irohazaka circa 2002. A mean piece of road made famous by Initial-D and jumping MR-2s.  It leads down a one-way mountain pass to Lake Chuzenji and back up again in a loop as there are separate roads for uphill and downhill traffic. It is the only way in and out of the National park.

The road ascends more than 400 meters in altitude and is named ‘Iroha’, because the original road consisted of 48 needlepoint curves, the same number as there are letters in the Japanese syllabary, formerly known as ‘Iroha’.

Needless to say, this guy has got ‘mad skillz’.

VIDEO: Eric O’Sullivan Interview

Motors TV reports on the 2007 Irish Prodrift champion: Eric O’Sullivan.  It’s an interesting insight into the Euro scene from someone immersed so deeply into it.

Young Version RunFree Levin

In my opinion, this maroon maniac is the hottest Levin ever, it’s just so damn nice! The inspiration for my AE86 build, if only it was a Trueno!

Battle Magazine Tandem Drift AE86’s!

Some old-school Battle Magazine footage featuring some nice tandem 86 drift action. Takes a little while to get into it but it is indeed worth it when it does.

That’s only part one of three! Links to the next two parts can be found after the jump:


Over & Over

Thank God for roll cages eh?

Once You Go Black…. forum member ‘Kid’ recently swapped his 16 Valve out for the mother of all 4A-GEs: The AE111 ‘Blacktop’ 20 Valve! Now, I know the specs of the Blacktop and the Silvertop aren’t ALL that different, but goddamn it sounds awesome. Hit the jump for the youtube vid.. love the flyby @ 0:51 seconds! WOOOOO!
