      MCM if you see this check out sounddeadenershowdown.com before the author pulls the site down. It contradicts a lot of commonly held beliefs in the sound deadening world. The guy knew more about it than anyone else in the world.

      After seeing the Mira getting it done. Some part of me, as a Malaysian. Wanted to buy a Kancil (Since Mira is extremely rare and hard to find here) and convert it to Mira and make a JDM hell out of it.

          What's the ryobi number for that impact wrench Moog is holding at 26:37?
          Closest thing I could find is RAD1801m but it's more of a drill or screwdriver.

                                                          I go for the Mira or the Mini, rather than a Yaris, because they are better.

                                                              As a Yaris Owner:

                                                              1.CHEAP*!!!!! ( depends where in the states you get it from)
                                                              2.Basic ( no gizmos to break car, just Aux jack and freedom)
                                                              3.Reliable ( can last up to 400k on basic maintenance, can be fixed with swear words and bubble gum)
                                                              4.Parts, ( can be fixed with Yaris, Corolla, xB, and xD parts)
                                                              5.Agile ( excellent car for the twisties, made for autocross )
                                                              6. Light ( car weighs 1.3 tons unladened)

                                                              7. Moddable ( engine swapping the 2ZR-FE/2ZZ-FE will give a higher HP ratio than boosting the stock engine, and some non N America Yaris come stock with 2ZR-fe or a JDM Turbo 1NZFE and potential c60 6 Speed. as per Armstrong Racing There is a OEM+ JDM Turbo kit for the stock engine or a supercharger option from 160-200+ horsepower)

                                                              1. NO RESPECT ( most of the car community doesnt like the Yaris. fizzled out after 2012 except the hardcore Yaris fans. Maybe should have been a Scion?)
                                                              2. SLOW ( this is not a straght line drag machine at all )
                                                              3. Throttle by Wire ( only the first gens had cable throttle bodies)

                                                              4. No parts ( most Yaris builds are almost the same 20 parts because that's the extent of the aftermarket. and is more expensive to mod parts wise than a Civic or a Geo Metro)
                                                              5. FWD, ( wrong wheel drive with no AWD option even with franken parting other toyota parts
                                                              6. USA never gets the cool Yaris parts.
                                                              7. Invisible ( rare to see a good example at a car show. Even if you build a autocross monster its still a Yaris)

                                                                  4) Fits heaps of crap with the back seats removed
                                                                  5) No worries about getting it stolen - why would you steal a Yaris?
                                                                  6) Toyota reliability
                                                                  7) Makes you watch MCM with more eagerness to own something else

For the dead, and for your own lost self. But what the wisdom of the ages says is that we do well not to grieve on and on. And those old ones knew a thing or two and had some truth to tell, Inman said, for you can grieve your heart out and in the end you are still where you are. All your grief hasn't changed a thing.

It's practical, it's quick enough to move around town quickly, I like how it grips and how responsive it is. It's not the best car in the world but I think you get a good amount of car for the money you pay.
