Toyota GT 86 Reviews
The GT86 was always likely to become a magnet for <>tweakers and tuners. And it is actively encouraged by Toyota. So that they may get cracking on an ecosystem of bolt - ons even before its start, Toyota confirmed Japanese the GT86 blueprints to tuner businesses. Having said that, Toyota is not stepping from the motion: its Toyota Racing Development (TRD) arm is launching a string of hop-up bits also.
From March, the TRD components will market like a level on cars, and they will later be provided for vehicles currently on your way, when this goes well.
The pack is made up of four - exit exhaust for a barely noticeable 3 along with a noticeably fruitier sound - 4bhp.
For comparison, common are 215 low-rolling resistance - really Prius tyres, produced for durability and / 45R17, not grip. An aero package works well but not-too brash.
However there is a great deal more grip. And it runs out less progressively, less transparently. That's perhaps less fun. Actually, the car I drove had stiffer front anti and optional adjustable dampers - roll bar. Nevertheless, the precision is good. You are much less inclined unless you have gone in quick to have it sideways. But I am not certain the stability of lateral grip to power can be as fragile as to the vehicle (Tada is working on the lower - ratio rear diff, which may aid). The playability is eroded, with it the thing which makes the base vehicle so special.
Measurably outstanding, but it feels similar to other modern sports cars. It's shifting from the aims of the base machine
