I saw this image on the net and thought it was a great way to show the actual size of the new FT-86 aka Scion FR-S aka Toyota GT86 aka the Subaru BR-Z.  Man, there are too many names for this car.

The FT86 is only 9.4 inches longer than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, yet it has 2 more seats and what appears to be a much longer wheelbase.

And for your Nissan heads out there, the S13 is 178 inches long, and the S14 is 177 inches long.

On one of Slide Squad Dave’s trips to Japan, he stayed with Hiroshi Takahashi of Running Free fame.  Dave was living my dream visiting shops, the race tracks we would see in the magazines and videos, riding in famous drift cars, driving at touge…  and every once in a while he would send e-mail updates along with videos and photos he was taking.

This was one of my favorites probably.

And yeah – he is eating with both hands while driving.
