Slide Spec Ae71 – Midnight Mechanics

Since I posted Cool-rolla (see below) Grant Scott, owner of the car threw up a comment and I found a link to his build thread on the AE86 Drivers club. This car is immense (well we knew that from the last pic) but seriously, check it out.

If I was rocking factory fresh paint, Street fins and more JDM bits than you would find at “JDM bits R’ us” I would be scared to hard-park it never, mind bang it off the lock stops, limiter and smoke the rears like a hero.

Grant Scott I salute you; this car rules.
