Photographer and Toyota Ambassador, Larry Chen, has built the ultimate GR86 “daily drifter” machine.
Whenever something catapults from its grassroots heydays to meteoric levels of success, it’s nice to take a step back to the fundamentals. For drifting, 1,000hp track-built drift machines are synonymous with the style, yet big budget builds—while equally impressive in their own right—lack a certain charm. Maybe it’s because they’re unattainable for the average enthusiast. Perhaps it’s because of the thousands of hours of seat time it takes to master a vehicle of that caliber. We think it’s what makes drifting such an intriguing sport and culture: the ability to piece together a track contender on (mostly) any budget. Enter Larry Chen’s “Daily Drifter.”
