the day is here! august 6th, hachi roku day ^^ what better excuse to post a bunch of ae86 stuff!? let’s get it started, then!

here’s a classic video of nobuteru taniguchi tearing up the touge in his 86

haha, i don’t drive that well with actual racing shoes =p NOB is the man!

another classic, i remember the first time i watched this. my reaction went right along with the dudes in the following car XD

of course, this has been one of my dream cars ever since. who DOESN’T want to put some supposed cool guys to shame in a 20 year-old toyota!!??

this is a given, and has already been posted on motormavens today, and i think i may have even posted it on this blog a while back.. turns out.. i’m still posting it, because sometimes reruns are good. really good!

i can’t wait to be doing stuff like this in my 20v corolla! people who talk down on manjiing.. obviously haven’t done it enough at 70mph+, that stuff is funnnnnnn!

this is alexi’s friend goto-san tearing it up!

what? you can’t do that with 160hp? haha =p check out alexi’s post on goto-san!

here’s some coverage of toshiki yoshioka destroying formula drift las vegas 2008 in his nitrous 20v coupe (hmmmm, all i need is nitrous, huh?)

this one’s pretty fresh! check out hibino’s 2009 version ae86!

nitrous 20v again! is this the new winning formula for hachis?

i actually just heard about this one yesterday, tsuchiya-san taking itsuki’s (the hachi go driver from initial d) voice actor for a ride along, lol!

you would figure a dude involved with a major anime involving drifting would have been before, right?

i posted this one just a short bit ago, but guess what? you need to see it again!


a lot of the driving in this video is pat cyr in his 86 coupe. we saw this dude just last weekend at d1 chicago and he was KILLING it, i dunno how he didn’t qualify =( oh well, it was cool to find a new favorite driver. better luck next time, pat!

that’s it for this post. man, i hope i can get my hachi rolling around today.. i just replaced my distributor cap and rotor yesterday, now i just need to get it timed right! i wanna go drive on hachi roku day!

check out these hachi-friendly blogs for more stuff throughout the day!

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thank you
