Race

Has anyone raced one of the new Taco's with the 4.0L

My cousin just got one and was curious to see how fast they were.

He has the 6 speed manuel.

Who do you think would win in a race and by how much?

Me vs. him.


My info is in my sig.

Dunno, But at the local track, in an 8th mile, I destroyed one by more then a full second.. and I wasn't done with 3rd gear yet. No bottle used. Poor kid, the civic he traded in was faster. Much uglier, but faster.

Thats me though, in my truck. 2wd and stripped more then a wench on a pole at one of those mens clubs.

Having a body lift and those offroad tires.. Your fighting a loosing battle mate. Even with a ' cat back ' ( I dunno which one you have ) and assuming you have an awefulmatic tranny.. Depending on the distance.. I think he would walk ya pretty good.

Your still a lot heavier then I am. ( I'd say at least 800lbs ). I'm on a Street or all season Radial that are at least 3 inches smaller and have a LOT more grip then your tires do. The 5 speed will help.. but I don't think it will ' be enough help '.

Exhaust? Borla or Magnaflo.

I raced my friend's 07 stock auto Access Cab TRD Offroad 4wd and he pulled a little bit. His rear bumper was just ahead of my front bumper. And my friend is around 350lbs.
