Yes, we are going to start TOUGE BATTLE now. Huh. Mr.Tsuchiya, you'll be impressed, for sure. How ? It's special battle. I'm asking you how special is it? I'm telling you it's special. Do you remember.... Oh, you invite Makinen, Tommi Makinen ! Not him, today. Yeah, we've invited him already. It was great time. I'm afraid, today it maybe more than that. More than Makinen's issue ? Tarma'Kin. Yes, tama-kin. Mr.Norihiko Katsuta, Champion of 2011 All Japan Rally Championship He is as known as tama-kin. Tell me what is "tama-kin" It's "Tarmac King" Tarmac King... King of tarmac road. Tarma Kin We invite Mr.Katsuta as a driver, NEW86 Rally car and his 2011 champion machine, Impreza. Mr.Tsuchiya and Mr.Katsuta will have battles with those special machines. If you say 86, there must be "AE"86. Ah, the old one. The old one. How can you say that? Tell me what you really want to say. (MAME means tiny, small, little etc.) Mame, is that coming up again?
Hey, hey, nasty boys, You do not fool on me boys. I love that car, Mame. Of course it is. In fact, it's cool machine. I like the car, but can it compete with NEW86? I remember Mame lost the last battle to AMUSE even before the battle start. That is because AMUSE has very wide tires. It was wide enough. My ones are just inside stock fender. Ah, well. To be honest, AMUSE is also. Towards champion machine Impreza、 We brought Impreza from Yashio factory. Oh, yes. Green one, named Shisa. Shisa vs. Champion machine. Each tuning car is one of the greatest street tuned cars we brought. Mr.Katsuta, you can never fool me, man. No, ever. I remember that you have thought Rally Cars are always better than... Yes, he lost not once. Brought your car with RALLY TIRES. It's not such easy. No, I'm always serious. Mr.Katsuta is giving nasty shout in his car during battle. OH, damn it XXXX. You know that, I'm so serious. I will win 2 battles in a row. Make it easy, today. It must be fun to reveal how those two battles between Streetcars and rally competition car. Indeed. We will see how differ they are.
OK, let's start ME86 Seems struggling under steer. Oh, no. I got him ! I beat out the Rally Champion ! Hey, I 'm going inside. What a speed ! That's fast. It was NOT easy, a lot more than I thought. Never. I did not think Mr.Tsuchiya is doing this sooo serious. I AM AFRAID, we're doing this SEROUS. I brought latest Impreza to win this battle on behalf of All Japan Rally Championship Drivers. This is my time to revenge Mr.Tsuchiya, I believe. AE86 wears widened wheel for today. If it can reduce lateral tire deformation, makes car more stable. Thanks for giving me a chance to compete with the champion machine. My shop is not a champion so far, I like to battle on behalf of tuning car shops. Meisters of TOUGE proud of themselves. All Japan Rally Championship vs. Street Tuning Special Battle. Motor sport debut of NEW 86 has done with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing factory machine,
developed and maintained by LACK who is JRC expert. At 2011 JRC Round7 "Rally Hokkaido", this 86 gained 2nd place of JN3 class under 3000cc . All Japan Rally Championship GAZOO RACING LACK 86. Please have good look at it. I did look at it, I wonder why it wears this. Well, It is "S" tire. It's not you have to see first. Of course I'm here to win. It's not fair. S tire, can I say it's cheating? No, this is just handicapped advantage. It has large brakes. It's soft enough, oh yeah, it's big brake. Rear has also large one. What a stiff seat! Yes it is. It costs 1.6 million yen for one. 1.6 million ? Oh, my god. 3.2 million for two. It’s rather expensive than this car itself. That's right. Wow, this seat is.... I was strongly ordered that even if you broke the car, you never break these seats. 1.6 million... Hmmmmm. Marvelous. I have never seen such stiff seats ever. No I haven't. I have no choice because this is WRC regulations matter. Seat has to be such stiff.
Oh, really. Roll-cages are so complicated and look stiff. Yes. This is also due to WRC regulations, isn't it ? Yes, it is. That's right. I heard engine is stock. Yes, it's not tuned. That makes the battle interesting. What is that one here. This is oil-cooler. If you put oil-cooler in front end as usual, it is easily hit trees or bumps because rally cars go deeply inside the corner. That makes you retire. Yes. OK, I'll try to ignore my scares. I will push myself. Where do I start brake ? Wow. For Mr.Katsuta, Attack driving at Gun-Sai is very first time in these years. And he does not drive this 86 at his competition. Even though, this long right vend clear through so smooth and fast. 27.906sec at his practice lap. First of all, I really have to get used to this car. Do you have to? The problem is I pump brake too strong because this car is brake assisted. I cannot help kicking brakes. It is hot day over 30°C, makes 2012 GT-R, runs same day here, 0.5 sec slower than its best time in winter season.
He gains 0.4 sec, 27.504sec. Stock engine does not gives crazy acceleration, but cornering speed is remarkable. Moves are so natural without any strong characteristics. Is this the essence of Rally Machine that demands all day driving ? Then, he comes up ! I was so interested in this rally machine. Thank you very much for the ride. 86 Rally version. Engine is stock. It moves so mild. It's great. This is amazing. That's the fun. It is like hachi.... Suspension is superb, tires following very soft and smooth, that makes keep engine rev in power band so easy. I say this is "On The Rail" Because of using S tire, its strong grip and characteristic, road holding is so well and follows gaps very well. They totally makes driver feel so confortable. It's fun. And engine power fits this suspension. As a result, flat out section becomes so long。 Isn't that fun ? It is precious time.
Original Dori-kin AE86 intercepts NEW 86 Rally version Exhaust system is renewed for new displacement, aiming top end crispy. Spring in rear suspension is modified 9kg to 7kg, which is struggling at Gun-Sai for long time. Wide rim wheel is newly produced and installed to make rear behavior milder. Let it clock 26sec. Yes. Dori-Kin 86 targets 26sec with narrow tires covered under stock fenders. Rear suspension does not seem bumpy and run well. But he needs more speed. Section time is 28.133, feeling and speed are not proportional. Feelings are good, I mind rear section is still little limp. Can I raise shocks 1step harder? Yes. To provide liner front responsiveness, set front shocks 1 step harder. Unfortunately, the car falls in over steer. Gears slipped out. I like more stable rear in roll. Is that possible to adjust dumpers?
That's already hardest step now. It doesn't take time to change rear spring, I can make it harder by spring. All right. Anyway I will make one more lap. 3rd gear tends to come out. 3rd gear? Doesn't sound good. Stability crossing bump and gap is the one of the weakest point of an old suspension design. Suitable suspension stroke, which stabilized roll and jumpy move, is not yet found. Has the narrow tire size for stock fender hit the limit of speed already ? I don't like this limp, moves. Shall we change the spring to 9kg ? Yeah. Shall we? Changes rear springs 7kg/mm to 9kg/mm, which has hit its record time. Now I realize how Gun-Sai traps people. I have one foot in the Gun-Sai trap already, I will go further into it. Dori-dori attacks again. As usual, car is jumpy and giving counters so much, but speed seems good. We assume this is the AE86 driving, isn't it ? Time is equivalent to 86 rally machine. It's better now. It's good. its still jumpy, but priority is time. New exhaust sounds great.
Battle is made 1.5km downhill section with initial D style. Drift-King's AE86 Street vs. GAZOO RACING LACK 86 OK, we like to start now. I guess this is the first 86 old and new battles in this TOUGE BATTLE. I will, I will do my best. I will. Yes, let us start. As an All Japan Rally Champion, I will not lose this battle. Well, my wild guess, I'll bet Mr.Tsuchiya 6 to Mr.Katsuta 4. Yes, I bet so. This is what we say. I'm ready. Can we start? 1st lap start, Gazoo 86 goes first. Dri-kin AE86 is good on accelerations. But! S tire is so fast. Gazoo 86 develops gap to AE86 with ON THE RAIL cornering. That is fast, damn S tire. Approaching hairpin corner where sensitive speed control is demanded seems no problem at all. Clear the hairpin corner so smooth and neat. Gazoo 86 running away by Dori-kin AE86 giving counter steering.
Gazoo 86 keeps good speed and clears high-speed section just like flying. No way. Contrary to all expectations, rally machine wins first. Oh, my...Really? Nothing to compare. I'm sure, its advantage of tire. I totally exhausted.... Kind the end. We are facing the end of Tsuchiya-mame AE86. Shall we sing a farewell song? Dori-dori goes first on 2nd lap. Start ! Wow, he's fast. Can't catch up the speed. He will not have any chance if he can show advantage on acceleration part. But Gazoo 86 grabs back the gap at 1st corner braking. Dori-dori's switch is now turned on, he starts control AE86 beyond the limit. Wooow, that's marvelous. Really drifting. Tsuchiya's soulful driving has shaken Tarmac king. This is the 86 meisters' superb driving. Oh, no, he's going away. Dori-kin, perfectly synchronized to AE86, breaks its limit and rises to 120%.
Watch out ! 2nd lap takes Dori-kin AE86. How did you see 86 old & new battles ? Hey guys, do you remember what you say, this old babe has proven the speed. It is unexpected draw. Let me talk about 1st lap. He was so fast on each corner. Oh, yes. Because it has S tire. You see, he chose S tire. Oh yes, that is why. I had almost no idea to catch him up at the corners. Oh dear. That is why I lost the 1st lap. I see. So I push myself at 2nd lap. I decided to drive just like my racing driver days. I tell you, the sounds were clearly flat out. I just catch him up at cornering section. Entering high-speed section passed after hairpin corner, he started to develop gap bit by bit. However, you could follow him at cornering section. Yes, I could. That shows that section time is almost same. Right. So the point is... Hairpin and high-speed section. Yes, that is right. Normally we start sudden death battle, but we will not today because it's special stage. It must be dangerous if we continue this. That's right. My tense is too high now. It won't be safe enough. It's better not stay with sudden death. I think you better do that.
No, no, it's far more dangerous. To be honest, I committed myself I could crash for the speed. We will sustain our judgment to next battle. Yes, for sure. OK, we took one each. Yes. Thanks so much.
