As for the comment that someone said about the FR-S,,,, that car is meant to drift, not handle and stick. That's why it's equipped with narrow tires off of a Prius. Doubt it?? Look it up.

BTW,,, look up the performance specs of even the new Camry with a V-6. It's quicker than the X-runner is stock for stock.
That's what I'm saying about the last performance car. That was over a decade ago. And yes a frs does have the same Michelin tires as a prius but the car was not built to drift. If that were the case it would've come with at least a greater steering angle and a real lsd. The car was built to drive. There are way more people autocrossing these cars then drifting them (although those are my intentions). And as for the Camry being quicker ...... Quicker doesn't make a car handle good. Chassis, weight distribution, center of gravity, suspension, diffs, and tires make a car handle good. That was what the xrunner was geared more towards was handling. Power falls behind all these things when it comes to tracking a car/truck.

Yeah but I can tell you all though the X is made to corner well my Xrunner does not corner near as well as my wife FRS.
Of course the wheel base is about double as that on the FRS

I was surprise when I got out of the truck after doing my process and was walking to the next truck, looked back at the tacoma to verify my process AND THEN I SAW IT. The sun shining down threw the clouds on the one thing to say its a true xrunner, THE MIGHTY X-BRACE. LOL
Thats when I realize it was a 2014 XRUNNER.
I guess it isn't discontinued after all.

Hmmmmmmmmm. Could be good! My local dealership has a 07 on the lot right now. I went to test drive a frs and we had to drive to the back lot and went outside to hop in a car and there was the xrunner. So of coarse I told him that I needed to drive it instead of whatever else we were gonna take. Truck had some Pirelli street slick looking tires on it too. Those aren't stock are they?

What is Toyota deal with shitty factory tires!? Haha and idk, I didn't pop the hood and I didn't floor it through the parking lot but it had street slicks all the way around on the stock rims. Looked like it just came from the track

I think everyone in Hawaii died a lil inside
Toyotas in general are big here and Xrunners are sold off the lot quick most of the time you gotta order em rarely do they have one on the lot available and if they do they are sold quick but Hawaii can buy em all so I can see why they gonna stop production

It will be sad but I hope they plan to make a different performance truck

Agreed it be better if they had better power plant option instead of only coming in stick
If they came from factory with some boost of larger motor I think it be great

Gotta wait and see
