Re: Post your racing stories, what has your Taco owned?

demolished a mazda (i think 3 it was a 4 door)

i couldnt just let him drive away without a run because he had a "JDM as f*ck" sticker on the back glass...ridiculous

he tried so hard...after we made the next turn he cruised by (no longer racing) he was laughing and shakin his head...

QA1's and BJ Flip up front, Drop leafs and beefed blocks out back, Celica Seats, decent sound system w/some 10's, W58 swap, 3.73 gears w/Detroit True Trac.

Re: Post your racing stories, what has your Taco owned?

Couple of days ago, got a chance to take out one of those new Scion/Subaru mutants (FRS flat boxer engine, rwd). Rolling start at about 45, took him out immediately, stopped racing at 90. Got it on video, sort of. I mentioned in another post earlier that I'm not getting good racing vids (because they are not in front or next to me). Lol.
This afternoon, I had a turbo Civic jump on me. It only took a few seconds of full boosted whine to leave him behind. My daughter says to me "Well that was unexpected", at which I replied "I get that all the time".

I have an invitation to a street "gathering" between here and Charlotte on the 20th. A certain 2010 Mustang GT is asking me to come out and show him what's up with the little black Tacoma he keeps hearing about.

Re: Post your racing stories, what has your Taco owned?

Well, first official kill ever, in any of my cars. Got some subway for dinner and found myself at a light with a semi newer Civic with a can (the one i was looking to play with) and a Dakota RT. Light turned green, RT rolls out with me. We look at each other and gun it same time. He pulls 3/4 car on me, even by the shift(weird since i spin when the turbo spools up), second i pull a car on him, miss third, he catches 3/4 car, get third and put a car and half on him. Shut it down at 85ish. Hahaha and to think i was gonna pull the turbo off... Safe to say i should run a high 14 on a good run. RT's are good for mid 15's with traction.

Truck build:
Tubular manifold
T25(yes, T25) at ~6psi
SAFC2
3" downpipe
2.5" cat back
AL flywheel
W58 trans
3.90 TRD LSD 8.4" rear
Tall (27.2"), heavy (56-57lbs each) and old 235/55-17 all around

02 IS300
99 RC 2WD Taco
