@mikey777d actually it’s the fr-s that is the rebadged red haired stepchild of the 86. Get your facts straight homie
Does toyota own scion ? @lennydday
Scion is Toyota’s “youth” division in US market
Yup they sure do. And Lexus too @mikey777d
Ya I know that , that’s why I said originally its a Toyota and not a scion , everyone has different opinions , the gt86 and the frs and the brz are all the same car so what’s the difference ? @lennydday
The brz has a stiffer spring rate on the suspension. But that’s about it @mikey777d
So it’s “sportier” , i still wouldn’t get either cuz their all tail happy @lennydday
@mikey777d Well said. Especially with Subaru’s version. If I’m gonna get a Subie, I’m gonna get all wheel drive. Because that’s what they’re known for, not FR “sporty” bs.
Exactly , I always liked subarus for the awd systems which made them pretty damn good , but a rear wheel drive rebadged scion ? Lol forget it , complete waste of money , I know the scion uses really thin tires from the Prius just to make it more slippery.. I thinks that’s over doing it , if your not sure the tails gonna go out then add some more power , maybe a bigger engine ?
^^ I’m no expert or anything but I’m pretty sure there calling it the gt-86 cuz that’s what it’s called in Japan. It’s the new ae-86. It’s a drift car. An 86 isn’t suppose to have a giant engine. It encourages a aggressive driving style to drift it. Idk why Subaru got involved but ya if you want a fast car buy a sti or something.
Not really tail happy its pretty much got 50/50 weight distribution
Why shell out the money for that car when you could go a class lower with more stability,cheaper, and more horsepower. You could spend the extra money left over on aero and horses.
@_dailyfresh_ how about that?? lol
Subaru was given the money to produce this car for Toyota.
Honestly I don’t like this car or the idea to try and rebuild and reconstruct the AE86 I mean it might just be because I like them old, like my 1985 Toyota corolla GTS AE86
their all the same chassis. it’s a nice rwd car. it’ll basically be the next 240sx in about 15 years and there’s nothing wrong with that. finally producing some fun cars instead of boring fwd boxes that people can afford again like the 90s
