Thanks to Tariq for sharing this video. Unfortunately, this is the destiny of some of the 86/BRZ cars sold here. The 86 is a suitable victim for ‘tafheet’ enthusiasts so dont be too surprised, you should have seen this one coming:
Make sure you think twice if you spot an orange 86 for sale anytime soon!
For the first time, some of our members take the 86 out for a trackday, putting this car to the test for the first time. The weather on that day was warm and humid. The track was pretty dusty and humid as well.
A couple of the 86’es had their transmission and brake fluids swapped for something more genuine. Tire pressures were adjusted and off they went on track.
Stories are circulating about fuel injector failures on the FA20 engine and we just pick up this following technical document by Toyota USA, from ft86club.com, explaining the problems (misfiring, pinking sounds, leaks) and other strange behavior some of the FA20 power plants are exhibiting, along with what seems like a software remedy.
We were all excited about this moment. Especially Firas, the owner of the soon to be Rocket Bunny 86. The first pieces of the puzzle have arrived, the BC adjustable coilovers and this is what our members Sid and Firas have spent the night working on. It was a dusk till dawn job as the coilovers are the first vital step before installing the Rocket Bunny kit and its matching wheels.
