Adam LZ's JZX100 Toyota Chaser is the Perfect Luxury Road Tripper for Drift Week 2020
The legendary Toyota JZX chassis cars: Crestas, Mark IIs, and Chasers, were luxury highway barges of their time. Think of it as a JDM BMW M5. But somewhere along the line, they became extremely cheap to buy in Japan. So all the hardcore seat time drivers at places like Ebisu circuit fell in love with the price, power, and durability of JZX cars. So after many trips to Japan and Ebisu, Mr. Adam LZ figured he really needed a JZX100 (or two) stateside. While this one has been crashed and smashed around, it was the perfect candidate for a car that you can drive with reckless abandon. Which is exactly what you need for something like Drift Week 2020.

    • Nikbawker

      I care, not reporting it but it does bother me that he's able to lay out content on the car in USA prior to anyone else not that USA specific content on them is something anyone was expecting, still somehow to me the fact that he did seems double wrong more than just driving it on the streets which is the part I don't care about but then again I always come back to the fact that overall I like mx83s better once they have a 2jz, 1jzgte vvti and non vvti in em.

    All comparing drift week to drag week and saying it’s similar but drift week actually races more and they don’t just make one pass like drag week is a incomparable statement, while that is the case but the difference is, drag racing is a max effort style of racing and harder on more critical parts of the car. The majority of Drag week cars also do NOT have stock engines like the cars participating in drift week. Now there are slower stockish classes in drag week that do race more than one pass. The difference between running a stock mild horsepowered engine compared to a high horsepower engine that is designed to only run anywhere from 10sec to low 6 or even 5sec at a time is huge! But needless to say, both events are equally great. one is not better than the other, just unique in there own way.

    Since Adam was taking some shots at Drag Week,,,,you have to bring your tires and spares with you in the car or trailer pulled by car on drag week, not have a chase vehicle bring it all with helpers ;) A dig the Drift Week idea though. Have fun and travel safe.

    I think the chaser is very similar to the BMW E39 chassi . Their 5 series from 95-03. Both in size and looks. Especially from behind. Which was in my opinion the best looking 5 series to date. This Chaser looks really good also.

    • John C
