The Story

The overall goal while seemingly expensive is to build a reliable and cheap track ready car, that has some 'resident f*ckboi' status stuff for kicks. I've already put about 2500 miles behind the wheel and am aching for more wheel time and get some hours on the track to really push it. Working out suspension rates right now and alignment. As well as losing weight personally. Even with the list of modifications included I feel this chassis is one of the cheapest "new" chassis to build and race. Sure Miata this and blah, in the words of Trump, "sounds good doesn't work" (I'm 6 foot 4 and hate having my knees touch the dash.... I'm More leg than torso) So this is next best. Reasons for Yaris vs other B segmented cars? This one already came modified. I also like the junkyard ability to swap in other parts lego style...The mazda/chevy cannot do that and the honda... well first gen Fit's are rather leaky ey?

Awesome to see you made it over from the forum to Wheelwell with this sweet little ride!

[]Craig Moody

Thank you! if this thing doesn't move might as well indulge!

[]Ernie Szots

There's a 'for sale' feature here on Wheelwell. From your 'My Garage' section, I think it's just one click. Until then, might as well add your parts and see where you land on mod score!

[]Craig Moody

That would take a while...

[]Craig Moody

Trying for ballpark 5 grand. I can convert some stuff over to Oe to reduce price.

For anyone who is thinking about buying a car Stripped out by prior owner. contemplate this. is it worth the hassle of going to the junkyard and peeling Biohazardous parts off various wrecked cars to bring your car into spec? In total, I spent about 300 dollars, three weekends, and lots and lots of simple green to get my Yaris down to a factory interior.... also took the chance to strip out some unnecessary weight while at it. cause..#racecar


[]Robert Sixto

I had posted something a while back about having a donor/junk car version of what you own. It can give you quite a bit of familiarity stripping stuff down. I'm all about it, but if you're trying to cobble together a usable running car, probably not as fun.

[]Craig Moody

HAha the car was a prior B spec car so it was completely stripped down, to match STS rules you need a full interior, so... I had to go out and find a same year model interior that wasnt all airbag explody and then cut out the panels to form fit around the rollcage. I did finish all that and got itlook good, gets alot of double looks! thanks!
