Fun read but all I could keep thinking about was the "supercharged" Tacoma TRD Pro. I hope this is a sign of things to come. A supercharger is what should of been standard for how much they charge for that truck. Almost $40K for that thing w/out a supercharger, kind of ridiculous.
Awesome build and great article!

@D1RGE EXE @jcali I don't know how you are saying it wasn't even close. I'm not talking about the rest of the season either just the final battle between Aasbo and Daigo. Look at the replay in the lead run where Aasbo was ahead, Daigo was wavering or almost straitening in the transition after the first banking. Then in the second run Daigo makes another mistake in the transition missing the inside clip. Ryan Sage even says it in his commentary. To be even nit picky Daigo got a red flag for clipping the cone in his lead run. Daigo made mistakes and was wavering in his run, Aasbo lost proximity, although I thought he was more consistent. Look at the criteria for judging: line, angle, style. Proximity should not weigh as much as the main three criteria. In my eyes he got robbed.

This was such a great read! Excellent job Mr. Moore, I'm using a lot of those pictures as desktops. Being a Toyota fan I love these informative/historical/entertaining blogs. I think I'm going to grab my PS2 and play GT2 again just for the GT one road car.

Who is that Hankook girl? I've seen her randomly at Formula D events but never knew her name.
wow this sucks to hear. What is left now for the tuning crowd after IT is gone? Is it just super street and D-sport?

Did anyone see how much this car is going to retail? roughly 25,000. I'm really considering it because of how much a bargain it is. FR-S or 2015 mustang?

Do you think racing games or video game simulators can give an advantage to drivers before entering a race?

I don't mind the horsepower wars because it pushes the sport forward even though it does suck for privateers like Taka. I don't agree with motor swapping though, at least keep engines from the same manufacture. Maybe FD can help lower HP cars by letting them use really sticky compound tires or making massive HP cars have less sticky tires.
1 year ago on What Do You Think About The Horsepower Wars?
I have a few I want to ask:
1. From Miura's beginnings to present day, what does he think were the most significant improvements he has seen or worked with when creating body parts?
2. Also if there are still difficulties or hurdles that can still be improved on to create body parts?
3. Does he see any new trends or styles developing in the future for body kits?
Thanks for this opportunity Speedhunters and Mr. Miura, Jcali.

So hyped for this. I'm going to Formula D this year hope to see Aasbo slide around in this beast. The RB aggressive styling will match his sledge hammer style. So cool!!!
On a side note, wish scion would just give us the AWD version of the TC like they had in other countries.

This article is so bitter/sweet. This was such a great read but in the back of my mind I really hate thinking this venue is going away, I really hope there is a solution. I can't think of a substitution for the famous banking. If anyone has attended this event it's true that this has to be one of the best for spectating because you can stand or sit at so many places of the track. If Irwindale is shut down I hope they have some sort of grand going away party. I hate to sound corny but I really want a one more time here.

I like the idea that Toyota is making a light weight sports sedan. I don't like them using the GT86/FR-S name. I hope it goes under another name.

You guys need to put a pole up for best hyper car at the show: between lambo, ferrari, and mclaren. Personally I like the P1.
Is it me or is it the right rear tail light (laser) out on the new lambo? Still think its cool though, looks like something you pilot out of wipeout or f-zero.
As stupid as this may sound Im surprised to not see the Mitsubishi Eclipse up there. It can be as ricy as people want to think of it but I thik it should get a little respect for how much power that car can potentially make for an FF.

@sean klingelhoefer @RobFerreira
Huh? I never implied that they weren't partnering together or have future plans of that happening. The point I was trying to make was why didnt they just use their version of TRD suspension thats already been developed for the gt86. To me it would make sense to use there own branding for this demo car instead of using KW's regardless if they developed it or not.
2 years, 2 months ago on Trd Griffon Concept: The Ultimate Tuned Eight-six
Yeah thats understandable but even though brembo did develope their breaks TRD are using there version of it. So I figure it was the same with the suspension. If you go to TRD's website they have their own version of suspension on there. I dont know if they made it in house or not but regardless they already have suspension specific for the gt86.
I was under the impression they got tons of money for R&D. I think they should partner with more companys to get more colaborations going on and create more TRD products. Like the Steering wheel, racing harness, and wheels.
Great article. The only thing that gets me is why the went with a KW suspension. Im not knocking KW its just that TRD went through all the trouble of devoloping everything else from the breaks and bodywork and not even use there own suspension? I guess no harm though cause KW's are pretty damn good.
Ah ok then yeah I see what you guys were going for.
2 years, 2 months ago on An Exclusive Preview Of The Mclaren P1
Yeah this reasoning makes sense and I can understand this but I figure the poll ment either forced induction or NA if your getting it from the same power plant. Because if its going to be any power plant and choosing forced induction or NA then it becomes more understandable for everyone to pick whichever preference they like. Thats a whole other argument in itself.
Im going with NA for its benifits. My example would be like if we took two SR20's one with turbo and one without making the same power. Like If you can make 280HP with a turbo on the SR20 or extract the same amount tunning with an NA version. Which would you take? This is what I was trying to get at.
2 years, 2 months ago on Poll: Forced Induction Vs. Na
Ok for the sake of argument can the guys defending the forced induction give a good example to use turbo or supercharger over NA when they make the same power from the same type of engine?
I can see this poll going either way if the question was just black and white, forced induction or NA. But the factor of being the same power from the same power plant I dont see why you would go turbo or supercharge.
Im not trying to be a troll here Im just trying to understand the logic.
I dont get this if your getting the same power for each, why even go forced induction? Regardless if the power is delivered in a different way doesnt the positives out weigh the negatives to have NA for the same power. For example wouldnt adding something like turbo add more weight to the engine bay, use extra space, and have more cooling problems then if you went with NA? I figure if your getting relativly the same power wouldnt it just be better by default to go NA for relaibilty reasons. Well at least if the power is coming from the same type of engine.
Great coverage! I really wanna hear how that sounds, must be awesome!
