1986 Toyota Corolla Liftback — Resurrection

An Trueno so wild it could have been given by a mad scientist who makes his living sideways at 100 mph.

Motorsport is a old game. You can spend months, even, building your own race car, and with one misjudgment, all those hours of work can be undone in an instant. of us would probably have a cry and call it a day, but Formula D and Irish mad scientist Darren only saw fresh opportunity faced with this dilemma.

The AE86 chassis has been to Darren, or D-Mac as he’s in the drift world. His first car was a spotless UK-spec Corolla GT that evolved into his SR20-powered drift car with he won the ’06 Irish Prodrift Series exporting it stateside to compete in D. Having secured a seat in a Saturn Sky for the ’08 season, it was only that in ’09 he reconnected with his by having a little fun with a 13B Trueno-spec AE86.

At this time, the so-called was a relatively simple build no major modifications bar the engine and a few bolt-ons from the MCNSport tuning company) catalog. The car was to showcase his company and to have fun in, but the fun came to a rather abrupt when, while driving it as a competitor at the first round of the ’10 Prodrift Series, D-Mac and his Trueno had an unplanned encounter a concrete block on the edge of the

Any hatchiroku will tell you that saving is one of the best performance you can make to this legendary but care needs to be taken as removing an extreme amount of can compromise chassis rigidity. To the car’s Kirstie Alley–sized that brought this Corolla down to the 1,800-pound a full rollcage was welded in with seam-welding the chassis. As a the TNFS D-Mac 86 is now not only on its feet but it’s also than a shot of Irish

Given the compact nature of a engine and Darren’s obsession weight reduction and distribution, it come as no surprise that the Hayward Rotary–built, 13B-REW engine has also been back into the bulkhead to its weight. Although Toyota’s can be turned into a high-rpm the unique sound and power of a turbocharged 13B two-rotor engine is nothing else on God’s Earth. So to say that the character of 86 is utterly changed would be an comparable to calling drifting a bit on the tires.
