    They seem to be popular among mAd tYte DrIfTerS y0, probably because they are cheap, light, rwd and Tsuchiya drove one.

    Race prepped A86 corollas can weigh less than 2000lbs and the 4age is a stout motor that can make 300hp with a turbo out of a 1.6L.

    Long live AE86!

    AE86 is a great platform, although old, its an excellent tuning base and handles good with the right setup, it also gives you the raw driving feel, kinda like a miata. However, I would not track an AE86 in the US due to 3 reasons: 1. You cant find many clean 86s here, and they are all beat up and the USDM engines are slow. 2. Lack of aftermarket support and reliable AE86 specialist shops. 3. With the same amount of money, one can spend on a much newer(not necessarily) or better car with much higher reliability.

    If I were in Japan though, things will be very different, they have the stronger engine and a lot more chassis in good used condition, parts are cheap, lots of aftermarket support, 86 specialists everywhere, and they restore those cars really well, for a cheaper price.

    There is little difference between a US or JDM 4agze engine except the EGR and a higher octane tune for JDM fuel.

    Everything else is the same. There is not reason why a US motor won't be as fast or reliable as the JDM motor.

    BTW I had a 4azge twincharged Aw11 that made 340hp and that was back in 1994 with very basic electronics.

    I agree those engines are getting old and rare. It costs more to build a 4ag now than to build a 2zz.

    Great car. I miss mine but I sold it for a good price when Drifting, etc. became popular. I hope the car is doing well in the East Coast...








    Tape.. Player..







    The car taught me alot.. similar to driving flat out in a Spec. Miata. Its also easier to learn how to slide the car around as the rear has 0 degree of camber (solid axle) and you can easily modify the front to have alot of max steering angle. The car is very slow so every weight transitions is slower and smoother..

    I regret selling it but it wasn't reliable enough for my driving when compared to a S2000.

    Afterall.. it was build.. 20+ years ago.

    ^^ Clean and + 1 to the reliability issue like I said!
    Basically you are on full throttle longer than any car in an 86 while drifting. I still love the angle Ueo makes in his D1 AE86, no one matches that!

    I wish I could afford to build my ae86. It's a red/black, CLEAN chasis, SR5, coupe. I got it for free too! I'll probably end up selling it though as it really isn't feasible to build both an ae86 AND my s-13. Since the s-13 will be ultimately faster and is already pretty heavily modified it wins the battle. Although I can get old formula atlantic engine parts for free/cheap. If I had a house to store it at I would just hang onto it because (as has been already stated) it isn't easy to find a clean chasis.

    Not quite... I would put a stroker version of the formula atlantic motor, almost certainly de-tuned to run street gas as I can't have a trailer right now. I should be able to get 200 or so hp out of it easy. I would just use the formula atlantic parts to build off of. If I have no restrictions on engine mods why run stock displacement?

    That's my dad's car in my avatar. He still has it. The car is getting re-painted (FINALLY) as we speak. We no longer run SCCA though, we run with a vintage group called HSR. We should be down at cali speedway in the beginning of summer.

    I made a little photo gallery of the car on zilvia.net.
