Can an '07 be better than a '10?

On my 09 with normal brake booster, the test would give similar results but you would need more wheel-spin differential to get similar effect, though not as strongly as the trd off road (wheel on asphalt would not spin).

Well anyway, I don't think a stock mech lsd would go as far as making the wheel on asphalt spin. But as you told in a post later, there are still advantages of the mech, but then it's a matter of taste and opinions, and I like technology so...

To answer your question OP, I noticed the exact same thing. My 2008 PreRunner was more solid. You can tell where they mashed panels together in the interior on the 10, things are squeaking all through the interior my 08 never did, just overall things seem to be slapped together instead of taking a little pride and torquing things down correctly, ect.

That said, the engine itself and all that is perfectly fine/same. It's built in Japan anyway so there's no issue there.

It's hard to put a finger on it, but I feel the same way with it. However, now that I've beefed it all up she's running nice I still have to fix the borked seals for the damn whistling though.

Also as for traction control... that's a whole diffrent discussion. His real question at the start was about quality control (at least how I saw it). A-TRAC is a great feature, the rear locker is identical to the 08 I had. A-LSD is better than no LSD, and there is a slight advantage that it's easier/cheaper to maintain breaks than replace clutch packs. That said, in raw power applications there is zero replacement for a true LSD... or welding it locked in drag :P Seeing as most Tacoma's are going the off-road route... that's typically a non issue minus the x-runners and of course, superwerty
