S2000-Powered Toyota AE86 – One Take

This Toyota AE86 Hatchback has been built into an amateur drift car by its owner “Juan Jovi.” Featuring a Honda F20 four-cylinder engine and 6-speed gearbox from a 2002 Honda S2000, this 86 takes the formula that made that car special in the first place with the 4AGE high-revving engine and RWD, and really cranks that up. The S2000 drivetrain is a perfect combination with this car.

    Says he’s committed, but only driving the car at 4/10th hahaha

  2. Audfile says:

    Out of all the 80s cars you've done recently this car had the best sounding stupid-loud exhaust. Also looked way more fun to drive than the overpowered MR2. I wonder how much this build costs, total.

  3. nooranik21 says:

    Real AE86 or a modified USDM Celica Supra?

  4. GT Mike91 says:

    Seeing this makes me want to learn and drive stick so much now. I swear autos don't look that cool when someone does spirited driving, nor sound as cool either.

  5. you shift like you dont know how to drive a race car

  6. Riley Hughes says:

    Why the fuck would you do this? The entire appeal of the 86 is the engine… This is just a shitty Corolla w a Honda Swap now lmao fuck this piece of shit

  7. No hate over the S2k motor, just never saw the appeal over even an NA 1j or NA 2j. The price difference nowadays between f20 and f22 motors and 1j swaps is hilarious for what you get. Also transmissions, Toyota knows transmissions.

    I just want you to know, Matt, that one of the things I appreciate most as a long-time fan of One Takes is how organic they are. Being able to watch you learn and vibe with each car's unique personality in real time gives the viewer so much information that can't always be captured in videos that are otherwise "too polished". One Takes are different, honest, and super fun in way that makes them stand out among conventional shooting styles. Thank you for everything you've done.

  9. Would be sick to see your feet at work..PAUSE NO HOMO

  10. Am I the only one who is dying inside a little bit, each day, every day, as these one takes get better and better as we approach the end. I’m going to draw a warm bath.

  11. Ace Aardvark says:

    Needs more exterior cameras.

  12. I'll be honest I don't know shit about drifting. But I've always wondered would you really need that handbrake if you have the proper power. Like 500 to the wheels on a 2500 lb car.

  13. MzrSpeed says:

    Sounds like the takumi in rocket league

  14. mason acosta says:

    i wanna see Tanner Foust driving this car. see how to well it performs under his crazy driving.

  15. drillzz22 says:

    Bunta would be so proud

  16. Had the pleasure of seeing it at a local meet. Got super psyched when the guy told me it would be on this channel and now its finally here.

  17. Andrew B says:

    Awesome video Matt. At 5:13 and again at 7:10 you mentioned that it was popping out of gear and you weren't sure why. I believe that is a known issue with the S2000 gearbox, as well as an issue with it randomly grinding sometimes similarly to the new Civic Type R. Anyway, sounds amazing, and seems like a hell of a lot of fun to drive. Thank you for the content.

  18. David Hill says:

    No tofu was harmed in the making of this video .

  19. this kinda sounds like johnny tran
    Honda s2000 in the the fast and furious

  20. If anybody wants to see more about Jovi's car take a peep at our channel and subscribe for future updates.

  21. Love it wen my boy matt hits vtec yo

  22. Leandro says:

  23. mzondi1970 says:

  24. Tomm192 says:


  25. revans425 says:

    Skip like 10 minutes in to actually see some drifts

  26. Tomm192 says:

    DORIFTO ?!

  27. so raspy

  28. cdwag23 says:

    you were having a hard time drifting because you barely hit vtec the entire video

  29. Jdor D says:

    Great video…"Yeshua/Jesus is the way"

  30. Budget Tech says:

    this guy can't drive. how do you money shift a s2000 , brutal

  31. the straight cut gear whine makes it sound like a stuka dive bomber

  32. ProjectADD says:

    I would beat the living shit out of this thing! Lol

  33. PGTMR2 says:

    Hey Terrence!
    Yes Phillip!
    Can we put a fart can in a classic?
    We sure can! RIIIIIPPP!

  34. Kensei doriftu?

  35. Mansa Musa says:

    I wonder how an ap2 s2k engine would work in a brz/frs/gt86. Especially with a supercharger.

  36. Scandinavian flick

  37. The car is certainly capable ..its in the timing ..try tossing the car around without the ebrake
