EVENT: Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 SUMMARY

2016 年 1 月 20 日 コメントはありません

If you haven’t yet heard of Tokyo Auto Salon – a.k.a TAS – or let alone attended, it’s probably the event to go to if you want to see what JDM cars and tuning is all about. From show cars to race cars, drifters to dragsters, concepts to consumer, it’s all right here in one spot at one of the biggest automotive events to be held in Japan.

Seasoned veterans of TAS will have no doubt noticed the growing STANCE community and the presence/influence was definitely felt this year.

In contrast, FRS/86/BRZs seemed to be out in fewer numbers although hats-off to Subaru for keeping the the attendees’ interest piqued with their signature blue mean machines.

Perhaps it’s the emergence of a certain other new FR sports car on the market that’s stealing the spotlight; more on that later.

Most interestingly (or perhaps its just me) there seemed to be a recurring theme with the vast majority of exhibitors this year; make the most of what you have. Yes, we’d all love to have the latest and greatest but in all honesty manufacturers haven’t exactly provided us with much choice, as of late, when it comes to sports cars. Don’t believe me? Just imagine for a second that the FRS/86/BRZ didn’t exist…see my point? So with the slim pickings, more exhibitors instead seemed to be focusing on creating parts and demo cars based on older chassis/models…

…or platforms we never would have even considered before!

Of course, its just as refreshing to see mash-ups of old and new like this FD sporting a front end more inline with MAZDA’s newest models.

And for those who like to go back several generations more, we spotted this old skool cool Datsun Z and wide body R32 on display at the Option booth.

Of course this is just a glimpse into what TAS had to offer this year. Over the next couple of days we’ll be showcasing some of the cars that really made the show (with higher resolution images) so stay tuned!

 

EVENT FEATURE: Hachiroku Matsuri 2015 @ Tsukuba Circuit!

2015 年 12 月 17 日 コメントはありません

Many AE86 (Hachiroku) aficianados will have no doubt seen the plethora of Option videos featuring ‘Drift King’ himself and his AE86, many of which were filmed on location at Tsukuba Circuit. It’s here that every year, the Hachiroku Matsuri takes place where AE86 and GT86 (BRZ and a handful of FRS included) gather from across Japan to battle it out all day long on the track. This year the event was held on 13th, (weekend just gone) and we went along to see what it’s all about!

Whilst Hachiroku Matsuri may not be as well known as ’86 day’ – August 6th – it’s definitely an event that every 86 fanatic should check out.

NEW PRODUCT : Joint Pipe For FR-S/BRZ

The stock joint pipe is not only narrow, it also has flattened sections which severely limits the performance gains from fitting a high efficiency manifold.

However, our new pipe has its sections welded together to maintain a wide Φ60.5 diameter throughout with additional weld beads on the inside for rigidity.

Video : ROLL CAGE CAM – Toshiki Yoshioka BRZ Pikes Peak Run

With this in car cam perspective, you’ll see how bad the weather got later in Yoshioka’s run. With the rain and the fog, it’s amazing that Yoshioka can even continue to drive up the mountain, literally, blind. I bet his heart rate was at least double the speed of the BRZ’s speed.
