To celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 3 in Australia, the guys from Street FX were asked to build two Aussie icon “Dream Machines”. An R32 GT-R and a Holden HSV GTS were chosen, withe the goal being for them to go head to head at the Xbox Fan Fest and Forza Horizon 3 launch party. We were asked by StreetFX to help with the R32 build and film how it all went. Take a look at how it all went down here:
For the launch of Forza Horizon 3 in Australia, Xbox organised their Fan Fest to hit Sydney Dragway for a night of drag racing and drifting, then would end with the showdown between the Forza Horizon 3 Dream Machines that we helped build. Check out our coverage of the launch here:
Incase you hadn’t noticed,our friends at StreetFX Motorsports and Graphics have been blowing up the internet with their VR38 powered Toyota 86 built by GT Auto Garage. It’s one of the craziest builds out there and has been happening alongside our VR38 powered R34 GT-R, Erubisu, build. The Albins 6-Speed sequential and Direct Clutch Services clutch was designed for both cars together. The 86 is rear wheel drive though, but will be shooting for over 1000hp as well. We caught up with Mark Trueno to have a chat and a closer look.

No doubt, we’ve met people that like to exaggerate how good their car is a little bit. Whether is is saying it has a few more hp, or few mods that it really does. But this guy takes it to a whole new level. It’s one thing to lie about the mods you have, but to get them just totally wrong and make claims that just aren’t even possible is going to get you in trouble. In this case, getting seen round the world as potentially the dumbest car enthusiast ever filmed. But is it really the world’s biggest bullshit artist,or, is it all an act or a prank? You decide
When you receive entry forms for both Chris’s R35 GT-R and Aaron McGranahan’s R35 GT-R, you know things are going to get serious at the Motive Half Mile.

Imagine if somebody was awesome enough to produce an Initial D sequence, with the new GT86? Well, it seems Toyota in the UK was that awesome and produced these badass images! Like, seriously, how cool is this? Check out the full gallery below: Continue reading
Following on from the 2016 ST Hitec GT-R Festival Heritage display part one article, we make our way into the R-chassis realm, starting off with the R32s present on the SAU NSW heritage display. With production numbers much higher than any other R-chassis model, there was most certainly going to be plenty on display. Not just your run of the mill examples either, these were all rare examples in their own right.
