Toyota 86 Owners Club Tech Night at Heasman Steering

 

Following the success of the HSV Owners Club tech night (see here), we prepared another technical night, this time for the popular new Toyota 86. Again, our workshop was full of eager 86 owners, and in true Heasmans fashion we showed them the ins and outs of making a good car even better!

Heasman Steering x Bilstein : World Time Attack Challenge 2014.

 

 

It’s 2am on Thursday morning. The Heasmans S14 was a midnight late addition to Tune House’s Dyno schedule. With Jim’s expert touch, the Heasman’s S14 produced maximum power (380kw) at the safest levels given it was a freshly built engine. Check out Heasmans Road to World Time Attack 2014 here.

 

We love a good battle and Sydney’s traffic didn’t disappoint. Our S14’s delayed arrival to Sydney Motorspo…
