iDT created the Toyota Atlantic as a realistic model that serves as a steppingstone to IndyCars. Powered by the advanced Toyota AG4 1.6 liter 4 valve engine it replaced the original Cosworth Ford engine with increased power (250 HP) and increased reliability. We've chosen this mod as a trainer vehicle for new rFactor racers and feature it in our Drive To Win and Tune To Win tutorials.
Version 2.0 was the final release from iDT before creating the Mazda powered Atlantic. We chose the Toyota version because it simply makes a better trainer vehicle.

- As this car is low on power, try to reduce the aero settings, and watch the lap times; 10 good laps.
- Set Gear Ratios per Tune To Win tutorial.
