LS engines ftw.
Toyota, we're here to race. Of course we needed a Chevy Silverado 3500HD to get here, and we'll need that Chevy to get home, again... But we're here to race now... in a toyota camry... that's using a ford motor... with parts that were stolen from Roush... of course we're not gonna stop until the courts make us.... yes Roush is talking with their lawyers.... but we're toyota and we're here to race
Does Toyota even make a motor that could compete in that category? And isn't the point of racing to see how good the drivers are?
Not to mention they barely make a RWD car in their entire lineup
They have a RWD car?
supra was. don't make it any more.
mr2 spyder was. don't make it any more.
lexus is/sc. that's really all that's left rwd for yota still built on a car chassis.
otherwise it's all trucks/suvs.
the LS and GS are still RWD
this would be lulz if that team was in any way affiliated with Toyota the company
which is toyota
their trailer has www.toyota.com/pitpass on it. Are you implying that they hacked toyota.com and put up their own site to appear affiliated, but are not actually in-bed with toyota?
there's nothing wrong with a Toyota that a Chevy driveline can't fix
One of the standard Lexus V8s or the IS-F motor would probably work, but (IIRC) they have complexity, weight, and parts availability issues.
Not necessarily. If you're driving a pedal car, and I'm in a Corolla, You could be the worlds greatest driver and I could be me and I'd still probably win a race at Laguna Seca.
That's obviously an extreme example, but technology plays a huge part in racing.
If you have identical chassis' and drivers following the same course, the lighter, more fuel efficient, more powerful motor will probably win.
Beyond that, parts and mechanics are plentiful even for LSx based motors. That's gonna matter if you you break down in west BFE Mexico.
You can't always afford to wait a week on [overpriced import] parts.
that is fucking fantastic
