posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The Norwegian Fredric Aasbø is the driver of the new Scion TC in Formula Drift who just placed second in FD Atlanta 2012, for those of you who don’t know. Well, he also works with SpeedHunters and both of them have just announced their new Toyota 86 drift car project dubbed the 86-X that will feature a engine swap with the famous 2JZ from a Toyota Supra! Aasbø says in his article, “we receive the base car on June 5th, and its first drift car incarnation is scheduled to be ready for Gatebil in Norway on the weekend of July 13th-15th. We will adapt most of the running gear out of the Team Need for Speed Japan Auto Supra, including our 700hp 2JZ-GTE, before we drop in a Brian Crower 3.4 stroker later in the year. It will all be packaged in a TRA Kyoto Rocket Bunny widebody kit, along with several major and minor modifications.” This is very exciting for everyone in the 86 / BRZ community to see these street car immediately turn into the next drift superstar.
