Really like this 86. I guess that wing is ok….would much rather it not be there though.
Its good to see nice clean 86’s for once, very nice car.
looks clean as, im sure that wing serves a purpose…. also has anyone got the old and new times as wll as the car that set them so we can get an idea of just how fast this thing is
Its made to go fast, hence the wing. It’s there for a reason, function over form.
The wing bugs me a bit, but yea, function over form here. Must be the best looking Trueno I’ve ever seen too! Another 50 pics of this car is very welcome, thank you very much!
that bodykit kinda reminds me of that purple corolla Tec-Art had .. exept for the backside :D..
Shut up you clowns this is the CBY ae86! of course it will have intense downforce and aerodynamics.
I wish they had one shot of the underside of the car.
The wing look nice on it! Its properly done, although I prefer the wing on the Tec-arts D1 86.
yea it does look like tec-arts, but from the looks of it this one isnt as wide, and doesn’t have such an aggressive front end
That looks awesome! Any more details of it anywhere?

i love the way this thing looks!
Love love love it! It is my favorite N2 AE86….. The CBY fenders, front bumper, sideskirts are perfect. Only thing I would change is the rear bumper. Should put in a Run Free rear bumper and it would be my dream car.
does that thing have neg camber on the rear wheels? it looks like it in this pic a bit
I believe the record was previously held by Kameda-sans black Levin 3 door correct? What is the new record?
gotta luv a spoonta with fatness.
no under-bonnet pics Alexi??? 🙁
People used to bend the axle housings of RX-7s to get a bit of rear camber, didn’t they? I’m not sure if this car has that though.
I know this car recently broke a lap record of some sort…I’m just not sure where. I was really sleepy at this event!
Like I said…I was really sleepy and forgot to do some things.
Love this thing more than ever with the deep Watanabe’s! Much more better than the old BuddyClub P1’s or 17’s.
Yes the diff housing has been modified by cutting and welding to acheive a small amount of rear camber.
custom altezza 6spd trans on this puppy
new record is by garage KMS wooden village levin coupe at tsukuba.. ..followed by Works Kitokito trueno carb fuel injected ..garage Ai and tec arts cheater seq trans comin close
Kameda tried to sell his black car at ebay ..also Kaneko red levin coupe has been out for while
New record at Nikko circuit? Was it previously held by Techno Pro Spirit’s Taro?
Something like that. Like I said, I didn’t find out! I’ll ask…
I think i am in love.
According to the Nikko Circuit website: http://www.nikko-circuit.jp/base6.html (last updated February 3, 2009?)
4-Wheeled Vehicle Course Record (Until January 30, 2009 old course, From January 31, 2009 new course)
N. Kameda (AE86 N2) with Racing Slicks
38.576 (March 19, 2000)
A very long standing lap time indeed! 😉
From the CBY Blog: http://blog.livedoor.jp/cb_yokohama/archives/2009-08.html
Results from Nikko on Hachi-Roku Day:
38.148 (August 6, 2009) also with Slicks
Quite impressive result for the little NA Sprinter Trueno, compared to the times of the 4WD and Turbo boys also listed;
Evo 6, GTS-T and FC3S (on A048 and R1R tyres) Guess they can’t quite stretch their legs enough on the tight and twisty “Sunshine Circuit” :’D
After some more mining… At Nikko on “hachi-roku day” 2007 (well August 5), Toshio “Taro” Kumakura from Techno Pro Spirits finished on top with a p.b. laptime of 41.9 (S Tyres) but not a record time. http://www.tp-spirit.co.jp/workscar/menu.html
