Driftworks V8 AE86 Moves for the first time
After being at Dynotorque on the ramps for
nearly 6 months, having insane amounts of work done, Today was Phils first
ever drive of the AE86 / ASCAR combination. It has a basic start map, so
doesn't run correctly yet, but we've not seen a silly smile on his face
like this since the DWS15 first moved. WHAT A NOISE! This car is set to be
something really special! Love it!
Thanks to Dynotorque,
Sky Insurance, Jenvey and Samco!

TRD AE86 Race Car - Part 1 (Drift King)
- Part 2 / Qualify: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysouDJByqoI
- Part 3 / Race: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljutIYKkSUY
To drive a race spec AE86 developed by TRD was a dream when Tsuchiya was
young. Of course he had chances to drive AE86 race cars tuned by other
shops, but not TRD - because they didn't let him.
Back in the 80s, a racer with a background like Tsuchiya was not considered
"legit" - His career started off as a street/touge racer, and hadn't gone
to any professional driving school. TRD, a Toyota related motorsports
company just couldn't allow that kind of person to drive their best race
However, things have changed after 20 years. Toyota/TRD is hiring variety
of drivers with different backgrounds, and also, Tsuchiya succeeded as a
true, professional race car driver. At age of 50+, Tsuchiya finally has
chance to drive the TRD AE86.
With that car, Tsuchiya battled with other top amateur AE86 drivers -
Drivers who grew up seeing Tsuchiya make legends, drivers who devoted all
of their life and money to battle with him someday, and dreams to win.
So it's not just Drift King driving another AE86, but it's an
once-in-a-lifetime event for AE86 drivers who gathered at Tsukuba that day.
