Truck has competed with parking lot auto-x, high-speed auto-x on road courses and even a rally-cross event. Truck has ran on Blackhawk Farms, Autobahn and Road America road courses.

Great lookin' truck. I've got an S-Runner, still stock, tho. Could you let me know how the Cal-Tracs change the handling? I've only heard of them being used on muscle cars for the drags. How do they feel in the turns?

that has to be the sickest truck this side of the Banks Sidewinder. Looks like buckets of fun!

Is this the model with the six-speed manual? If so, how are the shift travels?

Impressive setup. Good to see someone using the X-Runner as Toyota intended.

How does an intake, headers and tune give you 90hp and 120 lb ft of torque?? I want to get on this gravy train!
