Reviews of the new Toyota GR Supra have barely been out but someone has already swapped the new Supra’s BMW engine for the legendary 2JZ engine found in the MK4 Supra.

It was only a matter of time and no, there is no prize for guessing which country did it first. If you haven't guessed it, its Japan's Daigo Saito. A professional drifter known for his spectacular drift cars, Saito has since built a crazy Lamborghini Murcielago and a Ferrari 599 GTB for his drifting pleasure.

Details are scarce for the moment but the photos he uploaded on social media allows us to see that he added an additional rear-mounted radiator for extra cooling capacity. Of course, it is fully stripped out for maximum weight savings and it looks like it will be getting some really large fenders to cover those wide tyres.

Interestingly, Saito mentioned that the new Supra is a good base for a drift car as it has a short wheelbase and compact body, allowing it be easy to control during drifts. He also reckoned it would be easier and cheaper to run too.

Said to produce around 800bhp, the 2JZ-GTE equipped A90 GR Supra took just 42 days to develop and build and is set to make its first public appearance on 23rd March in Tokyo at the D1 Grand Prix All-Star Shoot Out.

    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Cam car accelerates to prevent a Forester from merging into the expressway, rear ends a lorry instead

    Are you familiar with those 'guai lan' drivers that speed up to prevent you from changing lanes or merging by blocking you on purpose? I swear this type of driver infuriates me. Watch this video and witness an 'instant karma' moment for one such driver: What Happened? The accident occurred along the Seletar Expressway (SLE). The cam vehicle was travelling on lane 3, the left-most lane of SLE.  Despite a white Subaru Forester attempting to merge into SLE, the cam vehicle decided not to give a hoot about the white SUV and continued travelling alongside it. As the Subaru driver sped up to merge in front of the cam vehicle, the cam vehicle 'coincidentally' accelerated too. This manoeuvre by the cam vehicle prevented the Subaru SUV from merging into the SLE and forced the SUV to drive on the road shoulder before merging onto the SLE. Instant Karma in 3, 2, 1... After witnessing the Subaru's alarming actions, the lorry in front of the cam vehicle panic-braked in a moment of folly.  As a result, the cam vehicle could not react in time and ended up 'kissing' the back of the lorry.  If you consider the height and angle of the dashcam, the cam vehicle is likely to be a commercial vehicle. Therefore, I highly question the actions of the cam vehicle. Is there a need to be so 'guai lan'??? Look what it got you - Your just desserts. Oh, don't forget those repair fees and demerit points as well! Netizens' Comments Cam vehicle driver post online to show it's the Subaru's fault due to it driving on the road shoulder and its tinted tail lights😰 What a way to start the new year! You can't fix stupid🤗     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Toyota driver 'act blur live longer' to escape after reversing into a Mini Cooper twice

    Integrity is an essential character-building value that requires one to be accountable and accept responsibility for his/her actions.  Essentially, it can be understood as "doing the right thing, even when no one is looking". Unfortunately for this couple, integrity means nothing to them. Watch this video to find out why: The Backstory The owner of the Mini Cooper returned to the Multi-storey carpark (MSCP), only to discover her damaged Mini Cooper. A gentleman, the eyewitness, informed her that the Toyota Corolla beside her reversed into her car twice while parking.  Later, she learned that the kind eyewitness had waited in the carpark because a note that he placed on the Mini Cooper, which contained his personal contact information, had gone missing. Shortly after, the couple driving the Toyota Corolla, AKA the culprits, returned to the MSCP. After the Mini driver confronted them, the couple acted blur and brushed her off. The husband allegedly turned aggressive and shouted at the Mini driver, "I pay lah, what's the big deal? I pay!", only to be instructed by his wife to get into the car and ignore the Mini driver. Even when the Mini driver was on a call with the Traffic Police and instructed them to stay until TP arrived at their location, the couple ignored and attempted to drive off.  Unfortunately for the couple, their attempt was caught in the above video.  Attempted To Run Her Over In the process of preventing the couple from driving off, the Mini driver stood in front of the Toyota Corolla. However, the driver continued to drive off, endangering the victim's life.  The Consequence Under section 84 of the Road Traffic Act, the driver at fault is liable to perform the following: Stop their vehicle. Provide their personal information to the accident victim(s), including passengers or pedestrians, upon request. Report the accident to the police within 24 hours. Provide assistance if the accident involves injury or death to another person.  Do not move the vehicle(s) involved in the accident.  To all those reading this article, please do not endanger your life in the process of retaining a hit and run culprit - Your safety is of paramount importance. Netizens' Comments Somemore bo ji to own up to their own mistakes.  If you have a solid parking technique, you won't have to rely on reverse cameras😉 This couple really ownself pwn ownself. I guess you can add "Dangerous driving - Driving against the flow of traffic" to the list of traffic charges.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Road raging Mercedes driver punches an Audi driver in the face for not giving way to him

    Last week, the viral Bentley driver incident made us wonder about the association between rich people and their obnoxious behaviour.  This week, we get a Mercedes driver who possesses similar obnoxious qualities.  Watch the video here:  What Happened? This road rage-induced incident occurred in the vicinity of private estates at Kovan Road. A Mercedes driver who wanted to turn right into an apartment estate took a grudge against an Audi driver who was going straight and had the right of way.  As the Mercedes driver started filling with rage, he alighted from his car to confront the Audi driver while impeding its way. 
    The Mercedes driver started shouting and gesturing wildly to the Audi driver while not wearing any face mask.  It can be observed that the Audi driver had wound down the window, most likely to respond to the Mercedes driver's confrontation.  Just then, the Mercedes driver took a few steps back as matters seemed to cool down.  At the next moment, the Mercedes driver took a gradual leap forward and landed a 'flying punch' right in the Audi driver's face before walking away.   NGL, the Audi driver deserves mad respect for doing the right thing by keeping his cool and not retaliating.  Living Under A Rock Do you know what grinds my gears? Someone's audacity to think they can get away with it after committing a blatant, unlawful act.  The Mercedes driver must be thinking that he still lives in the 1960s when he was 'young and dangerous', before the existence of technology. Well, jokes on him - With the existence of dashcams and social media, his unlawful act will not go unnoticed.  Netizens' Comments Tell me about it. Do you know how many videos I have come across that had no head or tail??? Was this what people did back in the day when the yellow box was non-existent? LOL. Bopian, 老 hero needed to compensate for his fragile ego.
