Oxymoron... OXYMORON!!! Factory-aftermarket, ahahaha But yeah it'* a T(oyota)R(acing)D(evelopment) item. Toyota has, in the past, gone to aftermarket manufacturers and rebadged their items after testing and approving them for use on their cars. ie, Cressida adjustable shocks may be rebadged KYB, if I recall correctly. It'* a roots-type unit, so it'll look similar to what'* on an L67.


Last I heard, it wasn't released yet. But that was a while ago and it may be out by now. It'll make lots of torque with it, that'* for sure.

Scion = cheap toyota products. I dont like something the size of a carcker jack toy. Plus my seadoo trailer is almost bigger than that car.

It'* not *that* small... the xA and xB are the small ones. It'* a hair over 3000lbs, so it'* not exactly a lightweight.

These "cheap" Toyota products still manage to be extremely well put together, drive and handle really well, and -- have an interior that'* MUCH more higher quality than what the General can put out for $30k.

the seats and the dash layout were second to none at that price range. seats had a luxorious feel without sacrificing sportiness, all while being more comfy than mine. that 2.4 really wound up nice, and the clutch/gearbox had a much nicer feel than my truck(bad clutch) or my mustang(sporty and aggressive).

Yeah, that 2.4 is the same used in the four-cylinder Camrys.


Which, under that logic, places torque higher on the priority list. Just how is it down low?

Nice lil cars, for me in the 20kish price range i'd look at SRT-4, the SS for all out speed, the tC for class, and the Mini Cooper * for a nice mix.
