Yaris kazoo racing yaris, a homologation special limited, run crazy little hot hatch. That bears very little resemblance to a normal yaris. Apart from its lights door mirrors and tail lights. That'S it it's got a carbon fiber roof it's got independent, rear suspension. It'S got two diffs one at the front on the back and, of course, the the diff of the four wheel drive system, it's nuts. Next to me, it's another nuts, little hot hatch, a mini, gp, crazy little drag race we're gon na have here. Let me tell you about this toyota, so it's got a 1.6 liter three cylinder turbo it's, the most powerful three cylinder turbo engine currently on sale, yeah forget about the one in the coding segment. This is the most powerful one on sale right now that you can buy. It puts out 261 horsepower and 360 newton meters of torque and it drives all four wheels via a six speed manual, gearbox, a good old fashioned manual for a four wheel, drive car it's. Quite light, it weighs in at 1280 kilos the cost of this car with the track pack, with the torsion limited slip diff at the front and the back. It costs thirty three thousand four hundred and ninety five pounds it's well worth it, though i love this car, that many gp is a bit more expensive, it's. Thirty five and a half thousand pounds it's got a bigger engine as well a two liter forcing the turbo with 306 horsepower and 450 newton meters of torque.
So more power it's also light in this car 1255 kilos, so better power to weight ratio, but it's, not perfect. You see it's front wheel drive only though it does have an automatic gearbox it's an eight speeder, but it has launch control so that will help it now i'm trying to talk as much as possible because it's raining a little bit and i want the track to Get damp because that's gon na go in my favor and show the true benefit of the four wheel. Drive system in this car shouldn't be biased, though matt don't be biased.

Now. Is it yeah yeah let's get on with the race buying a new car, then head to car wow, and my team will help you find your next car at a fair price car wow your one stop car buying comparison site before we race let's. Do a quick, sound check, see which of these cars sounds the best so i'm gon na rev up this little yaris. It actually plays fake engine noise to the car speakers, so it sounds okay, it's, a bit fake.
I can hear the turbo sucking, though, which is good. Let'S have a listen to the mini. I said i've got revange or something what's going on, not sure, but it's really has it got a normal exhaust on it or is it aftermarket? I believe it is the one fitted at the factory which do you think sounded the best, the iris on the mini. Let me know in the comments i'm interested to find out what you think anyway, let's. Do this race i'm going to try and hold it on the handbrake a little bit rather than double the clutch see what happens? Three, two one it's a good start come on come on. I smashed him. It'S coming back come on come on, come on, come on! Come on come on, oh that's, so so close i don't know who won what so then, what exactly happened? Well, the toyota got a great start, whereas the mini struggled off the line, but in the end the gp managed to reel the gr in and it crossed the line just ahead of the toyota, though, both cars still did the standing quarter mark in 13.6 seconds. Now. We have a rolling race from 50 miles an hour with the cars in there more relaxed, setting that's got an automatic gearbox, so he'll be in auto mode. I have a manual but i'm gon na be in six and then i'm gon na have to change down into third gear and i'm gon na use the rev matching.
So i can press a little button, so it should blitz the throttle automatically. When i go to change down to help me out, basically let's see what happens bit odd. This you ready let's, go let's, go up to speed. Okay, there we go roughly 50 mile an hour here. We are three two one go! Oh no! My change was all right that kicked down way quicker than i thought now: it's, just buggered off it's, just utterly buggered off ah smash me were you in like automatic and comfort and all that kind of stuff, because that car just buggered off trouble. Is it doesn't really have a comfort mode it's, either gp or normal, and that was normal that's fine, this wasn't normal? I just didn't change very quickly. Okay, let's! Do it again, but this time let's go from 35 miles an hour i'll be in fourth and i'll. Go into second ready, three, two one go whoa that was close up he's gone. Now, though, the poor transmission was like i'm, not sure that auto blip had time to actually do its thing. At least it wasn't a money shift the world speed wasn't enough to take it way. Past 7000 rpm lost. That, though, lost that now we have a rolling race, but take the gear change out of it. All the cars gon na be their sportiest settings i'm in track is in gp mode and we're gon na start in third gear, so he'll be locked in manual mode in third gear.
You ready, then third gear, sportiest mode, let's do it. Here we go three two one go. This picked up definitely did but now he's going. Oh now, he's pulling bug up all right show off. Do you know what i think my 1.6 three cylinder picked up slightly better than your mini's two liter, four cylinder yeah. I think you had the edge on me there, but then i just started to pull away but i'm just hanging on for dear life, and this car is all over the place really like the steering wheel's just going crazy yeah it talks to tram. Lining is all going on lights flashing, my life, this rock solid, absolutely just puts all of its power down, and i was impressed with how it just took off that second or two just ahead. You know why that is because i've got a wrc inspired turbo charger, which is ball, raced hell yeah. You ain't got that in your mini finally we're going to have a break test from 70 miles an hour when we hit the line for emergencies. Stop okay, then get leverage just stay level, i'll, try and balance it as best as i can. I'Ve got. No digital speedo, which is unusual. These days is the lightning comes. The line come on, yaris come on. Come on. Wlc, yes, come on wrc harrison. I hardly ever ever ever win brake test and that one i just totally smashed i'm so pleased when the drag no didn't win the drag race did it whether riley needed the rolling race.
When the brake test, one win for the yaris gr, the mini win overall won the rolling races and it won the drag race.
