The S2000 class Corollas are ******* awesome, too bad they have a backseat to the World Rally class.

Here's what I was talking about...

super 2000 class.


the S2000 class was meant to help bolster manufacturer participation by making the cars cheaper. No active diffs or sway bars, I don't even think the electro-hydraulic transmissions are allowed. The S2000 cars are about half the price or less of a WR class car. I think the S2000 class cars run around $150k to $200k as opposed to the $500k that a WR car costs. Even Fiat is in on the S2000 game with it's Punto, and they were severely cash strapped when they entered.

For a second there I thought maybe I'd get to see an overpriced 2jz swapped AE86. Now I'm just left going wtf?!

that's pretty nice. no turbo or 4wd but still 250 hp out of the 3SGE 2 litre? it just would be a toyota rally car without the 3S motor.

I drove a punto while i was in italy 2 yrs ago. it needed some S2000.

All wheel drive is allowed in S2000 class, just not the complex active differentials and yaw controls that are in place on WRC cars. Think of it as almost a Production WRC like the STi and Evo wars rage in. Turbos were also banned from the WRC class because of the other production (i.e.-$$$) and safety (fire) problems they incur. Actually Colin McRae was one of the bigger proponents of the S2000 class because of fires. He felt, as well as many others, that the displacement and cylinder count should've been higher because of higher elevation rallies like Argentina will cause massive loss in power compared to the turbo cars. Appearantly his fears were almost unfounded because the S2000 cars seem to be doing just fine. Although it still takes a massive back seat to the WRC class even with only 3 manufacturers in that class... although Suzuki is talking about entering the WRC class in the near future with it's SX4 hatchback providing the basic chassis and body.
