    dont worry, I was throttling it out most of the time. High range doesn’t let my truck rev up fast enough for fun, so I leave it in 2nd or 3rd I’m low range and it reached the peak power curve easier and coincides with getting me to a good speed to then start sliding around.

    If I were in hi range, I’d step on it and have nothing happen for a second or two and then the rear tires would just spin excessively.

    I’ve had a lot of practice with this truck and now it’s a little different with the camper on the rear.

    If you've got a few more bucks, and little time to wait for it to be built, take a look at https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/ongoing-small-batch-bussmann-rtmr-5relay-10fuse.400458/
    I went this route, and the build quality is really nice. Now I just need to get off my @ss and install it

    Haha. It sounds silly saying it, but it really does apply. When I was learning to drift motorcycles, the top rule was gospel, if you let out, you hook and high side, aka get tossed, quickly. So the answer was almost always more throttle and use the back end to swing you around. Applies nicely to every other bit of driving too. :burnrubber:

    Doesn't look like his boxes have negative terminals though, are you guys going to Neg on the battery or grounding on somewhere?

    Using an rtmr or switchpro ect makes install way cleaner and easier. Also consider these.

    Paranoid fab and powertrays makes good starting points.

    I'm waiting for ovtune. I was leaning toward their sc setup, but now he moved the turbos to a smart spot and the options are endless there. So waiting to see how those turn out.

    I have a neg bus next to (or under?) my relay box. Some things got grounded locally too.

    Switchpro is $$$$$. I will be getting some cable sleeves and have a decent bit of shrink wrap left from some other projects

    For sure $$$$ lots of features I don’t use too. But makes things clean and very reliable (solid state hardware). Rtmr is prob a better option if you’re not planning adding too many things.

    Heat shrink labels are my new fav thing. Easy troubleshooting clean AF install.

    Keep in mind if your OEM battery fails Toyota will not warranty it. “Too many accessories” even though I am running everything off an aux battery connected to an automatic charge relay. Ask me how I know.
