|V-Sport have entered one of the exciting new Toyota 86 GT's in the 2012 Motor Hot Tuner competition. After our success last year with the V-Sport WRX, we were looking for a car that would be a different challenge, and bring some additional interest to the Hot Tuner Challenge.
The V-Sport 86 GT was collected from Sydney City Toyota last week, one of the first customer 86's in the country. We have already been to Wakefield Park to give it the first run on the track in standard trim. Now begins the task of developing the 86 into a track day car with improvements designed to enhance the track day experience while retaining the essential elements of the 86 which are affordability, drivability and above all, FUN!

Some of the projects planned for the VS 86 GT include:
· AP Racing brake upgrade kits front & rear
· Goodridge braided brake line kits for both standard and upgraded brakes
· Lighter wheels to suit the larger brakes
· Performance exhaust system
· Upgraded suspension
· Engine and ECU mods
