Looks like it runs already
man the short wheelbase already shows on how swiftly it flicks!
It could have been sponsored by Toyota for the aftermarket scene to test and modify the new Supra,
Is this unit automatic as well?
these were rolling chassis afaik; common practice and similar things were done with 86 RC rollers to race teams/shops.
That's the 2nd A90 with a 2JZ swap.
Kind of reminds me of a 350Z
But in this vid it was a complete car.
Makes very little sense to ship them a production level vehicle just for them to tear it down into nothing. Either they used that car for testing and development prior to stripping it for racing or Toyota is doing some weird stuff.
HKS was supplied with more than one car iirc, as where Trust may have only gotten that one (maybe they will be picking another up at their own cost or something else).
That one was 1478kg on the corner scales, thats 3260lbs! Could be they drained all of the fluids before weighing though.
And yes, this is awesome. The damn car needs some Japanese parts in it to be a real Supra. Daigo's car sounds awesome at full song.
From the Drivetribe article on the subject:
"The transformation of the A90 Supra took just 42 days. This included development times too. Saito says he chose the A90 Supra for his 2019 season as it has a short wheelbase and a relevantly small size which means it is easy to control for drifting. He also said that the BMW B58 engine is too new for aftermarket companies to develop go faster bits. Saito has also used the 2JZ engine in the past, when it was seen in his Lexus SC which dominated American drifting in its time. Speaking of his previous cars, Saito has also competed in a 1000bhp Nissan GT-R, a Lamborghini Murcielago and a Ferrari 599."
Look who's back in town.
Ugh, when's the wide body kit going to be ready. Fender clearancing for it looks brutal right now lol
