Yay my car parts have arrived

After waiting 1 week for the parts to be shipping from the USA(which is pretty awesome wait time) cause they were $43 cheaper to buy and get shipped internationally then buy them from Australia… as you might know Whiteline is an Australian company…

MY86 Plates Now attached

Finally got around to removing my lame 6 character plates and taking them back to TMR.

Now I am rocking a 4 character plate MY86 :D.

To fit the plates I removed the big ugly black plate holder and attached it with my super secret mount πŸ˜€

More BRZ and 86 at TAS 2013

Article from speedhunters.com


91 cars. That’s how many 86s/BRZs/F-RSs were on display at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon. Never in the history of this show has one car been quite so popular. However what really makes the hachiroku, and its other guises, stand out is that it seems to have been adopted by pretty much every single car scene in Japan. I did my best to hunt most of these 91 cars in order to bring you the best I came across so let’s take an extra-long look at what can only be described as the Japanese β€œ86 mania!”

Space Saver Mod

So as I have one of the first run GTS the car came with a full size spare. YAY!!
Full Size Spare GTS
Well it takes up 3/4 of the boot space πŸ™ booo.
Stock GTS Boot
So I have found that space saver wheel fits okay with minor mod to the bolt to securer it.

And the boot mat as well.
GTS Low profile boot mat

All up the boot mat cost $130.
Space Saver cost $90.
Will need thin bit of mdf to put over the space saver so the boot liner doesn’t sag when I put the shopping in.

So I think it would be a worthwhile mod just so I can get full use of the boot!
Also weight saving πŸ˜€

MY86 Going on it’s first cruise

So next weekend 20/1/2013 MY86 will be heading out on it’s first 86 curise.
So the cruise will be going up Mt Nebo then on to Mt Glorious and have a BBQ at Wivenhoe Dam.

Should be a pretty good turn out of around 10 cars πŸ˜€

Looking forward to it.

350HP VCMC Turbo Toyota 86 / Scion FR-S

Pretty good to see a turbo 86 getting flogged around a track.

The car is running the Full Blown Motorsports Stage 1 Turbo setup.

Only problem was heat soak; just open the bay up; or get a low mount turbo like the AVO kit πŸ˜‰

New Part On The Way – Perrin Rear Shifter Bushing

Perrin Rear Shifter Bushing


PERRIN Rear shifter bushings help eliminate any loose and sloppy feel during gear changes! Give your shifter a feeling of precision not found with stock bushings!


The PERRIN Rear Shifter Bushing removes the soft rubber bushing on the back of the shifter rod. This vital connection point joins the shifter mechanism to the chassis. Installing the stiffer PERRIN Rear Shifter bushing makes the shifter feel even more connected to your transmission.


The PERRIN Rear Shifter bushing is constructed from stiff 88a durometer, polyurethane. This material is flexible enough to allow for normal drivetrain movement, but stiff enough to eliminate the large amounts of deflection from the stock part.

Once this Whiteline part is available

Once this Whiteline part is available it will be selling out like hotcakes.

The Whiteline Lower Control Arms, easily adjust camber!!! Amazing.
