GAZOO TWEAKS THE 86 - Autoline Daily
Toyota’s GR86 has a lot of street cred amongst enthusiasts, and Gazoo Racing just sweetened the package. It used feedback from professional race drivers to make the car better planted, have better steering response and better linearity. Specifically, it changed the shock absorber damping characteristics, gave the electric power steering crisper response, modified throttle response for manual transmissions, allowed higher revs during downshifts with automatic transmissions and engine torque was changed for better blipping. But now for the bad news. These upgrades are only available in Japan for now. Gazoo is also coming out with a limited edition 86 with green and bronze accents that look sensational. Just 200 will be built and there’s a lottery in Japan to see who gets them.
