So many people have been asking what we’re doing, since we recently sold the DWS15. So here you go! This is our plan: An AE86, that’s basically a NASCAR with Steering Lock underneath!
We’ve decided to show this build as a GooglePlus Album, as Facebook is getting shitter by the day, hiding our posts from people unless we ‘pay to promote’. So we thought we’d give Google a go as it seems pretty awesome!.
Just +1 Driftworks, add us to your Circles and you’ll get all updates immediately. Pics will always be up there first.
Driftworks on Google+ There are currently 14 pictures of the two cars posted there!
So yeah, don’t be mistaken in thinking this is going to just be an AE86 with a V8 in it. The idea is for it to be a clean AE86 that’s essentially a NASCAR with steering lock underneath. It will have v8, dogbox, drop gear live axle detroit locker, Ap brakes all round, and a huge amount more donated from the ASCAR.
Why not a GT86? Everyone else is doing that. It’s one of those cars that’s kind of for the big budget companies, and as we want to keep sponsorship as minimal as possible, there’s no way we could budget for one.
Why an AE86 – They are live axle, they are massively light, and kind of couldn’t be a more perfect car when we’re using the ASCAR donor.
I’m sure there will be an anti V8 vibe, and to a certain extent I agree with them being a bit soulless, but they are unquestionably the right engine for a competitive drift car, and reliability is one of the most important criteria in the project.
Our neighbours Dynotorque will be doing the vast majority of the work on the car, and once they have the two cars next door, expect things to move pretty fast
