There's not that many of us DFW owners on here yet, are there?

Hey, we're going to go run the civic at Ennis on Saturday Feb. 10th. I kind of want to see what a stock Yaris will run in the 1/4. I won't have my Yaris out there because I have to take the Tacoma for a support vehicle.

Lets roll with it!

Tekmoe- Were you parked at a Walmart in Dallas on Sunday. Did you notice another white Yaris? That was me! Assuming that was you. Was that your car? If so, where did you get your wheels? What size? How much?

Thanks.

Thanks.

thanks. trd suspension (struts and springs), konig feathers, and bfgoodrich g-force sport tires. i bought them at discount tire. this was not a cheap upgrade and i did not intend on spending so much money...but oh well. next in line is my trd quickshifter that i should have next week. then led tail lights and HID head lights.

i gave away the stock wheels and tires to the girl who bought my previous car.

got my yaris at toyota of plano. i would highly recommend buying a car from them. excellent customer service from the salesman...but the finance people on the other hand are another story.

i will have stickers made soon. this website will be up and running within the next few weeks. i am currently looking for vendors to run specials for us. i will get this project rolling soon enough.

15 or 16's

Are your Konig Feathers 15 or 16's? Also, if I get the 15's, will the factory tires fit on the Konig Feathers 15's? Will it look goofy?

Thanks dude.

Tekmoe,

I took the liberty and made up a flyer to hand out to spread the word about the club. I wanted to show you and get the OK before I started distributing them.





I am also interested in the business cards. Do you have the design already set up? If so would it be possible to get this, I can get some printed up also.

that's awesome dude! yeah, go for it! my business cards are very simple right now. i actually want to put a small picture of a yaris in outline form. i just have to do a simple photoshop job to make it look right.

i am about to start setting up the forums as well as the showcase gallery for all our texas yaris owners. we are almost there.

i don't think so. the factory tires are 185.60 which means they probably aren't wide enough to fit on a 7" width rim. i could be wrong but i am pretty sure it will not work. you will most likely have to purchase new tires.

Hey folks,

I'm in Dallas as well and just picked up my 3dr MT on March 5th. I can't get the website to work either.

We need to set something up, stake out a Denny's or an IHOP or something. :)

Yeah, but it will have to be regional, as you are over six hours away from me!

Cheers! M2
