86Fest is known to be the largest gathering of the AE86/FRS in North America. The event was spearheaded by the folks at MotorMavens, whom are also the same people that brought us Mass Appeal and Speed and Stance – just to name a couple. This elaborate production took place at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California as it did for the previous 86Fest.
The two-day event was a spectacular success for enthusiasts that wanted to size up their own 86 platform with the plethora of others in form of old school to new.
The track was open for auto-crossers to hone and test their skills. If you were a novice, 86Fest also provided an option to learn to drive like a pro with their Dynamic Driving Academy for 86/FR-S owners.
Many vendors were on site including OEM Audio Plus with a gang of FRS-86 cars.
Super Stret / Import Tuner came out to show support be bring out their own project FR-S with a Rocket Bunny widebody kit and white BBS’s.
MV Designz had Daniel Song’s Scion Tuner Challenge FRS-GT.
GReddy Racing’s Ken Gushi drift car with the Rocket Bunny kit
Mike Kim’s FR-S with Klutch Wheels
Mackin Industries Rocket Bunny FR-S
ARK Performance Custom Widebody
Young Tea’s FR-S with Whiteline
Migel in Vortech Supercharger’s booth
and US, just to name a few. In short, if you wanted to outfit your FR-S this event was the place to be!
For this year’s 86Fest we also hosted a mini models lounge that had, Lilly Evans, Serena Su, Ashley Clark, Amanda Kerr, and Jay Ferrer as our DaYUUM Hunnies.
Others at the event was DaYUUM Hunnie Marissa Hiroko with OEM Audio and a new face to some, Kallita, on Adrian’s Ruckus.
Fontana has always been predictable, a lot warmer than most So Cal cities in the day and hurricane winds as the sun sets. It just a weird eco system in Fontana but every time we have been to Fontana, our tents always tend to take flight.
We spotted our friends from Scion Evolution out to support the event.
Since this was an 86/FRS event, a Speed and Stance Pre-Meet took place in a nearby lot.
There was some dope cars including the Phaze2 Crew and some of our own rides including Jayson’s IS350 on freshly installed AirREX Suspension and Nilo’s NSX.
This is Hey Mikey’s fresh xB on CCW’s. I still love the nice fender work that was done on this Box.

We are anticipating the Official Speed and Stance and the next 86Fest.
