I cannot say for R1R's, but my times definitely show how well the RS3's perform. Like I said, I will look into the R1R's towards the years end..

After looking at the R1Rs, I might have found my rain tire solution. I have run full tread RA-1s in the rain, but this R1R looks to be a much better tread design for water evacuation. Have been concidering Nitto NT-01s but would rather run all Toyos for the NASA contingency money.

I ran nt01s for a long time, they were ok and lasted forever for an R compound tire... At the time my street tires were fallen azenis, which were about 3 seconds a lap slower per 2:00 lap time. I swear my toyo r1rs felt better, even though they aren't considered an r compound. Never got to compare laps between the 2.

ilikerice - what are you running for springs and shocks?
Your lucky to be in a area where people run STF, there is no one here who even bothers with the class which keeps my street driven CP Mustang busy.
Switch to the Toyo's they are so much faster than the rs-3 and star specs its not even a contest.

Impressive. I am running Megan coilovers. I will switch to R1R's later in the year. Prob going to go with 195/50's.

I really need to get my low end up to speed. Need more "Umpf" coming out of turns. Just had an event sunday.. came in 10th again in pax. I run against some really tough competitors. But everyone is very impressed with the yaris and how it handles.

The wife will be racing her Yaris tomorrow in STF for the first time in a few years. We'll see how it stacks up against the Focus that's also in her class.

Silkroad Coilovers
15x7 RE30s
205/50/15 RE11s

Should be fun to watch. :D

You've got a good suspension set up, should be pretty competitive.

Car did awesome, but couldn't beat the older focus hatch on 20mm wider Hankook RS3s.

I take it the focus just out gripped you so he went a little faster in the corners.

Out gripped, out experienced, out driven. I'm curious to see where she pax'd, the STF pax is pretty awesome.

Abby drove the Yaris and she hasn't raced in a few years, she doesn't have as much autox under he belt. Working on it though. :)

I'm going to try and do an event where we co-drive the yaris, this way I can see what areas we need to address to make it more competitive locally. Be it power, grip, suspension, seat, harness. The driver mod is most crucial though. :D

We got a lot of compliments on the car, people love seeing a Yaris AutoXing.

ilikerice-Are you running the Drag Dr-16? If so what size and offset are they. I plan on buying a set of DR-16s in 15"x7" with the silver finish to kinda keep the stock wheel look! Just really like the way your car looks with those wheels.

Dr-16 are almost identical to my rota gt3. They are 15x7. I dont know the weight difference though.

Speaking of exhaust, did I read that in stock class I can run a cat-back or axel-back system? Just thought it might free up some power or at least get rid of one heavy ass muffler!
