Beau Yates turning a Toyota 86 into a 350kW competition drift car!

Australian Champion Beau Yates has a new project, to turn/modify a into a 350kW competition car! He’s chosen to stay with the standard engine as he explains: “Everyone talks about the 50-50 weight distribution in these cars () and having that ultimate balance. I don’t know why people are like, ‘that’s a great perfectly balanced chassis, let’s rip the engine out and put a V8 in!’ It’s going against the car, I don’t know why people think they can just re-engineer it like that”. In the below he explains what he is trying to achieve with his project. He also gives his opinion on the 86.

He will debut this specially modified 86 in the upcoming national drift title series.

Supported by Toyota , the competition 86 will be completed in time for the first of the four-round Australian Grand Prix at Adelaide’s Mallala Raceway on October 5.

Stay tuned for more videos/info.
