Very informative, I was just watching that a while ago
It’s a awesome comparison, I thought it was funny seeing North American people saying that they prefer the Corolla, yet that’s all we’re getting anyways.

If Toyota announced that we were getting 5000 GRY units in North America, everyone would lose their minds. 😂

You know I would!

I feel like he neglects to bring up some important differences. Not that I expect him to know just how much it improves the Corolla.

But the Corolla has strengthened internals, more aero work, more air circulation over the diff, and a wider track width.

Not that that will counteract the weight disadvantage of the car though.

Yeah I think he’s just talking about the cars in a general sense. As far as the GRC goes, no one has driven it yet (ownership wise) so we don’t know if some of those things help. Engine wise, oh yeah, it’s more stout being that it’s built to hold 300 reliably.

I am pleasantly surprised with the GR Corolla. They really made some hefty improvements to make the stock for stock performance on par with the GR Yaris. I hope they made some more discoveries and revised their design more. Would be great to have essentially a second generation G16E vehicle with revisions.

That’s something I’m curious about as well. The G16 has a lot of headroom.

If we weren’t in such a forced automotive shift towards EV/Hybrids, I can see this engine power a pure sports car as well.

He also forgot one important factor to potential affect performance, the final drive ratio is different if comparing stock for stock. If modding, well duh, theres not much you can do about the weight. Final drive can be whatever you want and engine output will be same. The corolla engine pistons is slightly stronger, but i think that will make it a little more reliable rather than change potential max output.

You can always reply on their channel about it, he always reply. You can point that out if you are not satisfied about it.

Commented, will see what he says. He spent so much time doing aproximation math to say same pretty obvious thing over and over. Same power, less weight, better power to weight. More same power, less weight, still better power to weight. The final drives are known and could do math to see how it might affect things. His reply to other comments was, its so small it doesn't matter.

I look forward to seeing Motive get their hands on a GRC and do some head to head comparisons on the two cars. I'll also be looking to them to see how much more well built the GRC G16 is compared to the GRY's G16.
Just not before me. Thanks! 😁
