    ehh, in a normal 4wd system you need to maintain exactly the same rolling diameter front to rear because a difference in speeds fucks the centre diff so if theyve deliberately done it differently i reckon it was for a reason... or maybe the difference doesnt matter because they dont have a centre diff with this setup. anyways i'm talking in circles now lol

          Toyota has not said anything about them to dealers yet, but i guess that did not stop Toyota dealers taking depoists for Supra's and then having to refund them lol.

            23Kev did a couple of pages ago and despite the dealer never having heard of the car after some quick research said they took his deposit. Can't do any harm to go to your local dealer and ask.

              The ratio difference with clutch coupling is very similar to focus RS, it is done to get more tail happy dynamics without the drive losses of conventional centre lsd.

              Anyone know if bellhousing pattern will match the V6? In theory you could run double the power (probably a touch more if the newer 3 cyl is cammed for lower peak power rpm) for the same peak clutch/gear impulse load with double the cylinders. 350kw atw wouldn't be something to sneeze at.

                  As mentioned I have put a very small amount down to a dealer I know well to make sure I get in super early. I doubt other dealers will do it. He said that he should really wait for a stock code before taking anything substantial. Once stock codes come in I’ll make it official.

                    Toyota GR Yaris CVT revealed: Same show, less go for automatic warm hatch

                    https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-news/toyota-gr-yaris-cvt-revealed-same-show-less-go-for-automatic-warm-hatch-77750






                    If you like your hot hatches with a little more show than go then Toyota might just have the answer for you, with the Japanese giant quietly revealing the GR Yaris CVT concept at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
                    The Yaris CVT appears to match the look of the hardcore GR hot hatch - complete with bespoke three-door body style, flared guards and lightweight materials - but swaps the fire-breathing turbocharged engine for a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre engine.
                    According to international reports, you can expect a not-particularly-pulse-quickening 88kW and 145Nm. That power is fed through a CVT automatic (remember, the GR Yaris is manual only) and sent on to the front wheels, rather than to all four tyres like its bigger, badder brother.
                    What we're talking about, then, is a car that looks a lot like a GR Yaris, but that also misses out on most of that car's coolest features.
                    Most, but not all. The CVT concept does get the GR Yaris' lightweight aluminium body panels, and its carbon fibre weave roof. And combined with the fact it has three doors rather than five, it does promise to be substantially lighter than its road-going cousin, plus it adds double wishbone suspension at the rear.

                      Yay, I've been waiting for that announcement!
                      Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                              Makes sense.. pump out the shitbox ones on the same platform to lower production costs per vehicle

                              Would piss me off if i was buying the proper one though

                                Really?
                                Surely if you’re buying a fast Yaris, it’s not to impress others, but purely for your own fun?
                                If some more volume makes it more affordable - Fuck Yeah!
