With the World Time Attack Challenge nearing this year on the 1st of April 2022, we just fitted a few new products onto our development GR Yaris consisting of a new fuel setup and shifting strategies. The new fuel system consists of our new surge tank which has a larger low pressure fuel pump inside it to provide the adequate amount of fuel needed to turn up the power as the factory fuel pump has been maxed out for a while. Our surge tank kit also ensures further safety to eliminate fuel surge whilst we are out on the track with sticky tyres and high cornering G forces.
With many other companies claiming obsurd dyno numbers we decided to take our GR Yaris to the drag strip to prove to ourselves that we were not "down on power" as the MPH at the drag strip doesnt lie. Dyno charts can be manipulated so sell products, but the way we do things here, we prefer real life results!
With a lot of rain forecasted, we waited it out and managed 2 runs on the day (5 February 2022).
First pass, we had the launch control setting way too low at 4000rpm and the rev limiter at 7750. We bogged off the line with a 1.842 60FT and still managed a 11.0 @ 130MPH. After this run we knew what needed to be done to be Australia's first 10 second GR Yaris and take the World Record currently sitting at 10.987 @ 128.6MPH by our friends in Bahrain, Ekanoo Racing.
Before our second pass, we had our tuner Phil Armour from Armour Motorsport Services tweak our launch control strategy and raise the rev limiter to 8000rpm. This was our final run, it was all or nothing... The rain was just above us...
10.5 @ 131MPH! New World Record! We are now the fastest and quickest Toyota GR Yaris in the World and the first 10 second GR Yaris in Australia!
