    Do they have a wrap on the CF roof?

    Thats pretty darn cool.

    The reason for the painting and covering of some OEM CF is the glues tend to fail due to UV light. Maybe the GR Yaris has that type of glue (epoxy) in it's CF?
    I would hope that’s the case because it looks amazing and exotic without the covering.

      It’s CFRP so actually looks more like a marble kitchen bench than anything else. Covered with vinyl due to that being cheaper and faster than having multiple layers of clear needed to protect it. Some people have also said it will eventually go milky in the sun no matter what you do.
      Im indecisive on the wrap but prefer it to the other option.

        Here is the roof that Leading Edge Car Detailing are coating and PPFing. Like I said, kitchen benchtop...

          Yep same finish as the lips on some of the huracans, they didn’t wrap theirs though (maybe lambo give no fucks if it goes milky!).

            Drove hillclimb today.

            Slightly faster than mildly modded suzuki ignis on rs4. 63.59 Bryant park clockwise figure 8 for those of you curious.

            Boaty. Outside front tyre shoulder is unhappy. Does go hard when you point it straight.

            Can't get it to rotate, push understeer on demand. 30/70 split preferred for this track.

            Camber and rear diff would be a start.

                it looks exactly like what Lamborghini calls “forged composites” and charges you $2000/sq cm for

                which is ok because no doubt Ferrari have the same thing except they would charge $5000

                  Absolutely
                  looks exotic as hell on the Yaris, just a shame it can’t be left exposed!
                  i’d leave it exposed and treat it, if it goes milky, slap
                  the wrap back on

                      I can't angle a gopro at all, but this was my best run of the day yesterday.

                      2nd fastest "tin top" behind a ek civic vtir on Hoosier a7 and some tasty parts.

                      Inside shoulder of front tyre was stone cold after each run.

                      WTB camber.

                        Yeh, looks like it has broken the valve spring, collar and the rocker arm. Looking forward to when they take the head off to see if there is any damage on the pistons and in the bores.
                        Ouch indeed. They'd be gutted I reckon, would be missing out on lots of revenue.

                            Photos don't really do it justice but found myself with a few hours spare on the weekend and thought i'd build a fake rallye.

                            I guess red does look half decent on a GR after all. Isolated to 1 spot that is

                                I don't have bright green calipers anymore after a mishap on Saturday.

                                Returning soon in safety red as well.
