Have they confirmed that the manual will be available with the V6 though?
I’ve won regional rally-x, ice racing, and TSD events. Always felt I could probably do well at a larger scale rally event if I had the money and/or sponsorship to build a car and pay a team to do it.
I have to assume, being a Bugatti, that getting to that one screw to tighten it requires disassembling approximately 60% of the vehicle.
The 88 fiero is a great car which is scarce, I agree (and I have an 88 notchie in the garage), but I don’t know that it is *better* because of scarcity. If GM instead kept the development going with the planned 200+hp engines, it could have been an even better car.
How did nobody say Tenere 700? Seems like a perfect fit, and you can get a brand new bike for your 10k instead of a used one.
On the circuit edition cars, it’s signed Morizo (Akio Toyoda’s racing alias)
Yeah, true for drag racing for sure. For rally-x, circuit driving, or anything like that it’s not an issue. The STI launches just fine on a loose surface (and with an accessport the launch control makes it pretty foolproof)
I am in a similar position with a 2011 STi Hatch that I use for Rally-X and Ice Racing. It’s all going to come down to weight for me, if the GR Corolla is 3400lbs...there won’t be any performance advantage over the 10 year old STi.
Alright, Toyota you have my attention. Now we need to know weight and price
You’re probably correct, but I can hope, at least until Thursday. If it gets the carbon roof and aluminum body panels like the GR Yaris that’ll help, and the GR AWD system is very light compared to something with a conventional transfer case + center diff.
Entirely possible, but I can hope. If it weighs a lot more than 3000lbs then it won’t really have any performance advantage over my current STI Hatchback. If it costs a lot more than a new WRX, I won’t be buying one new, but maybe I’ll try to pick up a used one in a few years.
Up in Canada I’m seeing ST205 GT4 Celicas come up for sale regularly...it’s really hard not to buy them because they are my favorite rally machine (other than the RS200), but I know that I’d inevitably end up stuck trying to get some ridiculous unobtanium part when I break it at a rally-x.

A car with the engine behind the driver is always going to be somewhat more difficult to slide in a controlled manner than one with the engine in front. The car would prefer to rotate around the center of mass, so the same thing that makes mid engined cars turn so nicely when gripping, makes them worse for… Read more
