Incase you hadn’t noticed,our friends at StreetFX Motorsports and Graphics have been blowing up the internet with their VR38 powered Toyota 86 built by GT Auto Garage. It’s one of the craziest builds out there and has been happening alongside our VR38 powered R34 GT-R, Erubisu, build. The Albins 6-Speed sequential and Direct Clutch Services clutch was designed for both cars together. The 86 is rear wheel drive though, but will be shooting for over 1000hp as well. We caught up with Mark Trueno to have a chat and a closer look.

Mick Sigsworth’s Ultimate CARBON EVO build by PMQ and GT Auto Garage

Every now and then, there is a vehicle build that literally blows everything else out of the water. Mick Sigsworth’s carbon fibre Mitsubishi Evolution 9 is just one of those! From the day we learned of this mysterious build, we knew it was something special. Several times we visited GT Auto Garage, and many a time, I tried to peak behind a temporarily propped up curtain in the back room – only to be greeted by Dave telling us “not yet, out!” with a big grin on his face. We had no idea just what was behind that curtain until now, and quite simply, it is stunning!

The time has come that we are finally able to show some pictures of this beautiful monster built by PMQ and GT Auto Garage. When speaking to some of those involved with the build, one of the first points brought up is the absolutely stunning carbon work by Brad at Cawthorne Composites.

Some people may remember Mick’s EVO in it’s previous guise, a award winning Time Attack build, but it was relatively meek in comparison to this latest iteration. Here are some “before” shots.

 

I bet this Evo had no idea what it was in for, back in the day this picture was taken ;)

 

 

When we spoke to Tim from GT Auto, he stated “GT AUTO GARAGE are proud to be a part of Mick Sigsworths EVO”M” Project over the past 8 months of build it has undergone some major changes and with testing nearly here we have been given the opportunity to release pictures of his new look EVO 9 before it hits the track.  Awesome work by all involved in this project and can’t wait to see it on the track”

The Nawtii S14 Slider

 

Kate Burrows has always loved the Series 2 S14s; in fact it was her dream car. So she bought herself this 1998 Series 2 S14 200sx and set out to make into a clean daily driven drift car.

The car is powered by a Black Top SR20DET with VCT. The engine gets a bit of extra power from a pod filter, 440cc injectors, T28 ball bearing turbo, Turbosmart 2 stage boost controller and a custom stainless steel exhaust. The exhaust is made up of cast turbo manifold, 3 inch stainless steel pipes, hi-flow cats with twin 3 inch A spec blast pipes with burnt tips.

To deal with the pressures of drifting, Kate has upgraded the driveline and included an Exedy Heavy Duty clutch, Exedy performance pressure plate and Nismo lightened flywheel. She’s also upgraded the diff to a 4:1 Viscous LSD. The standard brake pads weren’t quite up to scratch so Kate has upgraded to Bendix Sports all round.

The suspension has had a fair chunk of work done to it as well. Section RMA 8 dampers front and rear, 10kg springs up front and 12kg springs in the rear and Whiteline front strut brace make things a little easier for Kate to control the S14 on track. The wheels are none other than Work VS MX measuring 17×8.5 -11 up front and 17×9.5 +15 on the rear wrapped in Federal 595 235/45/17s.

To fit the wheels Kate has had the front guards rolled and the rears pulled. A more aggressive look is achieved using a Trial front bar and side skirts and ADM rear bar with pods. HID head lights make things easier to see on night time track adventures.

The interior is mostly stock with an Autometer […]

Tekno Performance’s Toyota 86 build

A lot of our readers will be familiar with this feature car. You’d expect a good job from a company that also runs a V8 Supercar team and Tekno Performance have lived up to expectations with their 2012 Toyota 86 GTS.

Tekno Performance is the road car enhancement division of V8 Supercar team Tekno Autosports. They’re main concentration is on V8 Fords and Holdens along with high end European cars. But when the 86 came along, it was such a good package from the factory they had to see if they could make it even better.

From a distance you would think it’s just an average 86 with a nice set of wheels. But as you get closer you start to notice things. For example, the height when static; when displaying the car the boys will have it fully laid out thanks to AirREX airbag coilovers with 12 points of bump/rebound adjustment. This system is complimented by an Accuair Electronic level system with three stage height adjustment. All of this is controlled by Accuair I-Level Bluetooth remote height control. Roll control sway bars and polyurethane bushes finish the suspension components.

The car rolls on 19 x 9.5 inch Rays 57XTREME Gramlights wrapped in Hankook Ventus RS3 245/35R19s. The paint is standard issue but is highlighted by multiple carbon fibre details. The carbon fibre kit includes front lip, side skirts and rear splatts. Carbon fibre wrap paint effects are applied to the front bar, fog light surrounds, rear diffuser and interior trim. Also in the interior is a pair of carbon Kevlar Bride Stradia II Low Max reclinable racing seats on Bride rails.

Under the bonnet is the standard factory fitted FA20 2 Litre Boxer Engine, which has been turbo […]

Are Tinted Tail Lights Illegal in Australia? What you need to know from the ADR’s

Quite frequently we have customers ask us whether or not aftermarket or tinted tail lights comply with the Australian Design Rules. This is by no means “legal” advice, but it may help you get out of a bind if a police officer issues a fine for such an offence. Please note that we are *not* road worthy assessors, nor are we police, so this should be just considered general information and not necessarily an iron clad defence should your slammed commodore with black spray painted tail lights gets defected! Again – This information is provided simply for your interest, not as legal advice.
