    Will you guys be careful? I turned into a corner a bit too drastically with my Yaris GR today, and that resulted in quite a spectacular situation... indecision

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    What was the motivation for the additional underbody seal?  Does the car come with reduced seal from the factory?  Thought normally the stone chip paint and wheelarch liners did a sufficient job.

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Yes additional sealant against all kind of dirt, gravel, etc. 

    The dealer strongly recommended it (He is also running a rally team) and it is nearly a no cost option.

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Thanks guys. You need to like old style turbo charged cars with a good turbo punch. For ~270HP this thing flys. I love it. I also like the "sound". It fits the car good as a japanese toy racer. Yes it is artifical and for a sound aficionado like RC its maybe completely wrong but as a McLaren owner im good with it indecision. The brake pedal needs to be used even more so as in the 720s. More to come ....


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Proof that enthusiast cars don’t need to come with high price tags.  Hopefully, Toyota delivers on its promise for something similar for the States, based on the larger Corolla.  However, balance and performance won’t match that of the Yaris.

    The analogy is closer than you realize as the Yaris GR is developed through Gazoo Racing, a separate entity under the Toyota Motor Company structure.  It’s production is on a separate line at a plant that produces the Crown, another brand under the TMC umbrella.    https://www.autoevolution.com/news/this-is-how-the-toyota-gr-yaris-is-assembled-151601.html


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Really envy you Yaris GR guys.... as a salute I had a fun double trip across the city today in the STi, -32C so lots of grip and power, a few open spots to do small drifts, balance the grip on pavement and ice, punch the power out of snowy apexes.... thats why we need these cars, esp. in winter. kiss

    Well, the Yaris GR is the performante within Toyota then RC will soon be on the case. Smiley
