Before i get to the fun things ill do the even funner things, it was about Tuesday the week of the Track day and i realised that my poo bawx red KE70 was not going to be running at full abilities by the weekend, so i had two choices, pull over the car or bounce on the pedal put the metal to the floor…wait, they actually were;
1: Flag track day and waste a precious $220
2: Find something to drive
As i quickly discovered none of my friends have cars that ever drive, so i did what any logical person would do. I went and bought an AE86 with a built Carbed 4A-GE.
Since people love spec lists, here she goooeesss
1984 Toyota Sprinter AE86
A recoed 16v bigport head running 260 degree 8.4mm lift tighe cams w/ a Redline 2x DCOE manifold and,

Or something along those lines
I threw some spare Weds Tri Spokes onto it and it ended up looking like this
Less than ideal ride height, but whatever i only had a day to make it to the event, i threw in an MA61 drivers seat, twin cam steering wheel and some most important stickers
etc etc stories, after we got to Raleigh Raceway Coffs Harbour NSW, i did some of these
Had some super rad tandems with Adan and his Smallport 16v AE86, with 20v quad throttles and an S13 rear end!
After some super rad times i did a diff centre, managed to rip all the teeth off the crown wheel, S series diffs can suck me off. Luckily AE86DC site owner Matt let me steal the centre out of his diff and skid on sunday!
Yes that is me in shorts, some of you may be very surprised.
Many thanks to JakeL, Matt, Gunnerz, Jay70 for being a rad dude, hope you didn’t break that Sr too much. Rachel for not murdering me. Mucho loves for erryone else too! Very excited for next one in FEB
I’ll leave you guys with some incar footage.
