    FB and rival Club Stands

    A question I would ask is why Cult 86 didn't speak to us about joining with our stand seeing as it's been organised for a year and a half. Cult 86 could have had a section on our stand. Maybe you should ask them? GT86 OC have always been invited to join us at Japfest. The GT86 DC FB page is exactly that. It is not a joint venture with the OC. If you would like to liaise with Cult 86 and direct them here, Jeff, Will and I would be more than happy to talk. People will always ask the same questions over and over. It's simply the nature of the beast. We can't really help that many spend their entire lives on FB and don't look at forums, it's just the way things have gone.
  2. The warranty will work as it always has with modified cars. Any failure would be looked at, but it is not necessarily going to void your warranty just because you have modifications. I had no problems with warranty claims despite having modifications.

    In comes the GR86

    It is coming to the UK. A bit early for any special editions as such, though there may be a launch edition, will have to wait and see.

    Toyota RWD fan

    Welcome aboard, Adrian. I had three MK1 MR2's going back a long time and raced them back in the early noughties. I liked the MK3 and remember having a ball in a turbo'd one round Dijon and Magny Cours. Blimey nigh on 20 years ago now! Glad you are enjoying the car.

    Manual or Automatic transmission??

    It's more likely down to your driving. I seem to go past turbo'd GT86's easily enough on track, but there's no way I'm faster than them in a straight line. Bold statement but I don't think I've had another GT86 overtake me on track ever, though I fully expect there'll be someone along to tell me they have. 😂

    Manual or Automatic transmission??

    I've driven autos on road and track and owned a manual for 8 years. The auto is slow on up changes. The gearing is longer so it accelerates slower. Comments about autos being quicker on track defy logic. Depends what you want. All I can say is I don't like autos.

    GR Yaris who's going for it?

    It's no more or less likely than any other car I would say. It's simply driver error. It may be more likely with a LHD car due to the seat position. The gearbox on the GR is easier than on the GT86 and going from 5th to 4th, the spring of the gate is all you need. Robert has clearly messed this up. Best tip is to never ever block shift. Always go through the gears. Absolutely essential on track.

    Yep something of a 'money shift' by Robert at Apex:

    GR Yaris who's going for it?

    Yep, May 2022 now. It's just bonkers. So much going on as well. Been busy every weekend trying different maps and prototype testing of air filters, exhausts etc. Still, kept me busy!
  12. Honestly it sounds like it needs reseting. You have to do the reset with the door closed, just in case you haven't.
