    The tires are the prior version BFGs All Terrains, actually. Some years back I decided to embark on a funny/crazy transformation of the Little Yaris that Could. This car has done: daily driving, autoX, and short track (go-kart track!) racing. Even used it to transport car parts and once, a futon bed and frame. Yup. Crazy.

    I wanted to lift it a little, and hit some dirt trails with it. And I did hit some trails, sans lift.

    After some testing (videos can be found at Off Road Yaris) I realized I *needed* a limited slip diff. Figured that I`d get a steeper gear ratio while I was at it. Plus, a concoction of mixed parts to get a small lift.

    In the end, I decided all that stuff would be too expensive, and used the money and bought a stock Jeep Cherokee Sport.

    Crazy idea....off road yaris.
    Thought maybe you were driving through Compton with all those pot holes lol.

    I love it.

    Since you`ve gone this far, you should look up RallyX events. They are essentially autocross events on dirt/mud/grass rather than pavement. I`ve never done it, but it looks like a lot of fun in the right vehicle.
