was going to get rid of the taco for a rapotor but may wait a while as I have a 2nd kiddie on the way. Did though try going another wheel route for acceleration and more importantly mpg.
Going from duratracs in 285's to 265's = 13 lbs less at each corner
Going from fj trd wheels to 16" weds hase specs. Fj trd are between 27-29lbs a peice and the hase specs are 15lbs each !
all added up I will be dropping between 100-108lbs in rotational weigh off the wheel & tire combo !. I've heard every 1lb of rotational weight is equal to 7-9lbs of stationary weight, but than i've heard its equal to only double the stationary weight. Can someone verify the rotational weight conversion ? I'll be losing between 200lbs to 900lbs ?!? in stationary weight so at either range I should def feel and see a difference. I would just like some further info on the rotational weight as I always hated physics.
...digging through some racing forums if the rotational conversion rate is at 1lb rotation to 10 stationary when calculated the near 1000lbs off stationary would equate to .8 -1.0 seconds off in the 1/4 mile when racing. That might not be big to stock tacomas but to ones like mine that that are supercharged and have heavy rims and tires that might make a huge difference in performance and mpg..
