Toyota AE86 Specifications

Monday, November 15th, 2010

North American AE86 specifications

There are three types of Corolla Sport RWD for the US market: DX, SR5, and GT-S, though the DX was generally an internal Toyota designation, as brochures, and advertising do not include the DX designation; it consisted of a lower trim level, lighter duty suspension parts and the like.

Since my brother had this car for awhile before he moved on to his Nissan 180SX, would be interesting to list out the Toyota Corolla AE86 specification for general interest. I even had a neighbor who actually still remembered my brother’s old AE86 and that was something like 10 years ago!

Of Cars and Tires

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2006

Stack of old tires, 4 piecs from my Toyota Altiss were stacked here.It is not safe to drive around with tires that have already worn out. To think that I was crazy enough to drive around town with tires that has minimal treads, I even took a trip with passengers on a trip outstation to Segamat to attend a friend’s wedding. Thank goodness for God’s protection nothing untoward has happen. The trip went along quite smoothly. It was a 3 hour drive there and a 3 hour drive back. Left me pretty much tired the next day. Age must be catching up on me or perhaps my physique and mental stamina has not been that good anyway since any long distance driving always makes me rather tired. (more…)
