RR of the Day: AE86 goodness
Chohdog has spent the time, effort and coin to make this particular 86 the race/drift car that his readers can learn from. As an editor for Drift and RWD Sport Magazine (which we want a copy of, so where can we find it?), Chohdog has stripped everything unnecessary from this Corolla, leaving only a race bucket and a few choice interior components to show the kids how its done.
Under the hood, he's got a 4AGE block, complete with AE92 high compression pistons, head and intake manifold with Crower Stage 2 camshafts working the valves with the help of Battle Version cam gears. An HKS Super Magnificent Mega Special air filter sends sacrificial oxygen into the engine, that's soon dispatched through a TRD, 4-1 header and out an HKS catback exhaust.
On the suspension side of the equation, he's opted for KYB 4-way adjustable shocks with TRD 6 kg/mm springs in front, paired with 4.3 kg/mm twizzlers and Tokico five-way adjustable shocks in the rear.
There's more to the mods, but we'd be giving you no incentive to click through for more spizzarklerific pics and the full list of mods, posted after the jump.
On a housekeeping note, we've said before that if you don't provide details about your ride, it won't get picked. This particularly pained us last night, when we were about to choose two delectable little morsels, only to find that the extensive modifications weren't listed. Look, we're all car geeks here and there are few things we enjoy more than listing off all the little DIY items that make it onto our pride and joy. It's imbued into every molecule of our being. Give us the details so we can share your passion with the rest of our readers. M'kay?
