The Story

The Torque Motorsport GR86 is a collaboration between myself (AlexMartini) and the videogame Torque Drift 2. We chose the GR86 because we had Toyota signed up to join the game, needed a car that provided an awesome feedback to the driver, and would allow us to learn the basics of drifting without too much horsepower. With that said, we jumped right into the GR86! Over the course of 2023, we've gone through driving it, modifying it, breaking it, and repeating it; ending up with over 6 track days with the car at USAIR and growing every month. Overall, I LOVE this car. The naturally aspirated motor is fun, peppy, but not too powerful. Our mods with the car are focused around the basics for drifting and we're stoked to be building this car with Konig Wheels, Nexen Tires, Feal Suspension, NRG, and Grip Royal!

My name is Alex, or Alex Martini (Alex.Martini__) and I love building unreliable cars. From track, road, drag and drift, there really isn't a motorsport I love. PS if you're reading this, just know that we've got some WILD builds coming for MartiniWorks that we're really excited to share with you :)
