It wasn't very fast when I saw it at time attack -- I'm sure Jason can do more with it.

What exactly are you purposing it for?

^Really? I thought it was reasonably quick? But, I'm thinking of the micro car shoot-out in Siphon.

Cool project, though, Jason. Keep us posted.

against other micros, it probably was! The day I saw it he had it out against Rado's time attack tC, some beastly Porsche cup car, and several others. It just didn't have the power for the straights at that time, but I'm sure it did fine in the turns.

Looking at past lap times from the track days it ran at, it was not fast - our Showroom Stock C Nissan project has put down faster laps at BRP. However, there are a ton of variables, we have no idea the talent level of the driver, and no idea what tires they were on.

Regardless, we are confident it will be quicker when we are done.

We are building the car for SCCA's H Production Club Racing class, with plans of taking the car to the National Championship Runoffs.

The only bad thing is, the National race season in this Division starts in January. At this time we believe we will make the Double National race at PIR, but the car will be largely stock. We only have time to make the required safety updates before that race, all of the go fast stuff will come later in the season.

We also have a number of problems to address... Power steering is not working, and there are some non SCCA class legal mods we have to undo. Development will keep us busy for a good part of the season.

On a curve friendly course the Yaris is very competitive. I ran mine at Waterford Hills on an open track day and was running within 10 seconds of what our spec neons run during a race. And all it had was a rear sway bar and some azenis 615s.

Also I would forget about the power steering for now, it's shuts off once your going very fast(at least thats the common theory), so once your on the tack you shouldn't have to worry.

Good luck on your build!!!!!!!!

We have electronic-assisted power steering. The computer controls the power steering, and as you go faster it reduces the assist, until it's completely off at some pre-determined speed.

With that said, I pulled the relay for it (disabling it) and I've never missed it.

Did you happen to score the car with the original Tein SS coilovers? or did they revert it to stock?

If so, you scored big on a 2 of a kind setup, other Yaris in the states was done by a group trying to push 1G on the skidpad with a Sedan, lol.

The car has stock shocks on it. Regardless, we already had plans in place to have some custom race shocks made.

I heard the guys from A&J Racing who competed against the Tein Yaris said Tein put in alot of $$$ in this car. More money than was needed. The Yaris was still slow with the SC. It couldn't keep up with the AJ racing fit. I think the Yaris at that time was running on 615's on 17 inch rims which were probably too heavy for the setup.

The Fits were running 15's and some of them were turbo'd for the time attacks.

How hard is it to get 1G? I've done .98 average (two laps each direction) in my Yaris on Dunlop Star Specs with minimal suspension tuning. A set of the latest generation top dog street tires (Toyo R1R, Kumho XS, etc) can easily exceed 1G, probably even on stock suspension.

Put a set of race tires on and you can run 1.2 G all day long.

(sorry for the threadjack...)

HMMMM, i thought i remember the TEIN yaris was N/A when it was featured in SIPHON and its time was only off a bit from the fit's that just so happened to not be able to make it.Also wasn't those fit's k20 powered also? it was so long ago but i don't even think i saw performance numbers for this car........

so pulling fuse keeps the power steering on electric assist all the time now for you? if so do tell which fuse was pulled as its 17 degrees here this morning and im not about to go exploring.

^ no, pulling the relay disables the power steering system completely. I'll take a pic next chance I get.

There was another thread about this and someone did post a pic of which relay it is.
