After working one summer in a Dunkin Donuts as a teenager I swore I would never take another job that deals with the public.

This is the reason I installed my dashcam a few months ago. Humanity is not something you want to bet against...you will lose the majority of time.

Dash cams are getting affordable, I highly recommend everyone to get them

As a plus, I don't need to set up my gopro at the track and wonder if it's even recording lol

Well, the Yaris is back to stock.



So much wheel gap. :(

Shocks and springs FS thread will be up soon.

This will also be the last update post in this build thread.

Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere.

These babies all showed up within the week.

The TRD brake lines I just posted up:



TRD Door Stabilizers for front and rear.



and Cusco Street Zero coilovers w/ Cusco pillowball strut mount.





These will be sitting for a few months, I have other things to worry about right now.

Stay tuned for a new build thread in the Racing section.

Great thread. I have a NCP13 Vitz, and parts are getting really hard to find now so I envy you lol!

You will love the Cusco, I ran them in my Supra (Zero 2E) for years and loved them!

Door stabilizers? What do they do? Obviously, stabilize the door but... I'm confused.

Where did you get the door stabilizers and brake lines from?

Cap, I just can't let this car go, I love it too much!

Thanks Gorilla! Yeah, all my past projects had parts that were getting harder to find, so a new chassis like this was definitely appealing. I can't wait to install the Cusco!

D.A.K, the door stabilizers fill the gap between the door latch and striker, effectively making the door a rigid part of the body to reduce flex, or something like that lol.

91mustang, all my parts are usually ordered through www.rhdjapan.com when searching for parts input the chassis code; ncp91 or ncp131 for example. Expensive, but legit and you know for certain you're not getting scammed.

I looked online and only see door stabilizers for different model cars, is there a specific model that will work on the yaris?
