Toyota brings TRD Griffon GT86 to Goodwood [w/video]

Toyota brings TRD Griffon GT86 to Goodwood [w/video] In the midst of the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, there’s a particularly special Toyota running up the hill. This special entry is a GT86 (the cousin to our Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ ) that’s been poked, prodded, and tweaked by the minds at Toyota Racing Development. The result of TRD’s fettling is a nearly race-ready car. Starting with the body, the hood, doors, trunk lid, and wings are all made of carbon fiber. The lightweight treatment doesn’t end there, though. The bumpers, fenders, and diffuser all feature carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic, while the windows are now made of polycarbonate plastic. Under the ...

Griffon’s our best bird: 424 boss The Belleville Intelligencer

Griffon’s our best bird: 424 boss 0 Change text size for the story Print Criticism about CFB Trenton’s search and rescue helicopters’ reliability are unfounded, said the unit’s commanding officer Lt. Col. Joel Roy. According to a National Defence Department study filed in 2009, it would be risky for the air force and Roy’s crews at 424 Search and Rescue squadron to continue using the Griffon CH-416 aircraft to conduct missions in Central Canada. The review by the chief of air force development cites limitations of the CH-146 — a military version of the Bell 412 civilian chopper that was pressed into service in 2005 at 8 Wing — claiming it is too ...

Toyota GT86 TRD Griffon factory tuned RWD sport coupe concept

TRD Griffon Toyota GT86 is a Factory-Tuned Treat on 9 July, 2013 at 21:28 As you have undoubtedly noticed, Japan’s four-wheeled wonder twins – the Toyota 86/GT86/Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ – have become the darlings of the world’s automotive aftermarket. Scores of tuners have either released or will soon release parts to make the Toyobaru coupes faster, more agile and/or better looking. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to build such a vehicle that’s exactly like another. However, so far, Toyota and Subaru themselves have mostly shied away from offering their own tuning parts for the small rear-drive sportsters. That changes in a very big way with the Toyota Racing Development ...

CLASSIC MOTOCROSS IRON: 1969 GREEVES GRIFFON 380 Though the engine and transmission were still separate, connected by a primary chain, the slim-downed 380cc engine was as light as the year before’s 250 engine By Tom White What happened in 1969 might have seemed inconsequential for other manufacturers, but when Greeves dropped their own trademark frame in favor of a conventional welded tube-frame design, a lot of their customers were skeptical. Many claimed that Bert Greeves had “caved in” by dropping his trademark aluminum I-Beam downtube and bolt-together frame in favor of a hand-brazed Reynolds 531 chromoly frame with a conventional front downtube. Even worse for the traditionalists, ...

When Will Honda Produce the NAS?

When Will Honda Produce the NAS? This winter will mark 8 years since the “New American Sports” (NAS) concept was started by Tony Schroeder, HRA senior designer.

Vintage Greeves Motorcycles Hawkstone, QUB, & Challenger

Vintage Greeves Motorcycles Greeves Motorcycles Ltd. produced various types of motorcycles from the early 1950s through the 1970s. The company was started by the same man behind Invacar Ltd. Bert Greeves. Invacar was a manufacturer of gas-powered, three-wheeled cars for those that were disabled. Being a motorcycle fan and trials rider, Mr. Greeves wanted to try his hand in the motorcycle market. Thinking he could reduce the weight of a bike while keeping its quality, he designed two dirt bikes that were released in 1954. One bike was for trials riding, and the other for motocross. They both used 200cc Villiers two-stroke engines, and were easily identifiable thanks to the cast aluminum down ...
