Well, My Ae86 drift car has had a fairly long history.
I got the car in 2004 and pretty much started doing D1NZ rounds after having a 180sx for the first 18 months of D1
The 180 was good and tidy but I have always had a “thing” for toyotas.
So this is what the drifter looked like origionally… Kinda ugly and trueno.
The car had a modified smallport 4age from Japan.
Which promptly exploded at puke. So the it went 7age turbo. That was a very good combo but caught fire at manfield.
So then it was on to the N/a 7age motor. Also changed was the wheels and front end into a Levin which I like much more than trueno.
And then vinyl change.
I campaigned the car from 2004 to 2008 in the D1nz and D Factor rounds.
In 2007 I placed 5th in D Factor (NZ Drift Series) and 3rd place in D1nz.
All that with less than 100kw at the wheels.
In the next post I will cover the 2008 season and the 4th engine that was fitted.
